5 things: Travel Finds

untitled5.3 I don’t get the opportunity to go shopping here in the Philippines often due to my busy work schedule, but when I get the chance to go to Manila – a mall is always on the itinerary! Last weekend my husband and I went to Makati again to spend some time with my niece and eat some delicious food (more on that later!). Here are a few things I bought that I think would make great souvenirs or presents for your friends back home – wherever your home is:

  1. Acacia wooden bowls (Kultura Filipino, SM Makati)
  2. Traditional Filipino embroidered coin purse (Kultura Filipino, SM Makati)
  3. Soludos espadrilles (Shoe Salon, Glorietta 3, Ayala Centre, Makati)
  4. ‘How to be Parisian’ book (Powerbooks, Greenbelt 4, Ayala Centre, Makati)
  5. Pearl ring set ( H&M, SM Makati)

Happy shopping!

  1. Guurrrllll you’ve just given me a list of ‘pasalubongs’ to give to my folks haha They’re in Phils right now (just got back from Baguio) & I’ve been trying to think of good souvenirs to add to our house decor. What/which markets would you recommend?


    1. They just need to go to the mother of all Filipino souvenir shops: Kultura Filipino!!! It’s only in SM department stores but it’s amazing!! I buy all my gifts from there 🙂 Still has the cheap price tags too!
