Greenhills Shopping Center Revisited


Religious articles

It's been years since my last shopping trip to Greenhills Shopping Center. We were looking for some giveaways for a big meeting and Greenhills has an incalculable array of gift ideas. We started in the jewelry section and found a fresh pearl bracelet with an attractive and colorful accent stone for P95.00. We were able to bargain with the vendor since we were buying 50 pieces. She marked down the price to P70.00 for each bracelet.

Souvenirs

Greenhills is divided into sections - handbags and accessories, clothing (separate sections for men and women), jewelry, home decor, souvenirs, Filipiniana arts and crafts, shoes and knick knacks. It's especially fun to shop here in November for Christmas decorations and gifts though the crowd might be unabearable. 

Knock-offs

Many shoppers come to Greenhills to buy knock-offs. And there are gobs to choose from. Be careful though if you are bringing this to another country because Customs at your destination may fine you and confiscate your bag. Alternatively, there are bags and wallets that are not a replica of a known brand and may be just right for your needs.

Blouses

I bought a couple of blouses made of light material with quarter sleeves. One of the blouses I bought is of chiffon fabric and easy to wash and dry.  Both were perfect for a super hot summer season and the price was reasonable at P350.00 each. I couldn't bargain this down because I was only buying one blouse each from two different vendors and the discount is given when you're buying 3 blouses. Three blouses are offered for P1,000.00. (The exchange rate at the time of purchase was P44.35 to the US$.)  There were also cheaper blouses which were for sale at 3 for P400.00.
  
Distressed jeans

The most trendy outfit today is the distressed jeans and these are available at Greenhills. You might find the perfect fit here.

Statement tees

Sometimes these t-shirts hit the mark!

There are electronic gadget shops on the upper floor and many restaurants to choose from across the street from the main shopping area.  Covered walkways connect the complex so you don't have to walk under the sun which can really wipe you out.

Greenhills Shopping Center is on Ortigas Avenue, Norwestern Street, San Juan.

Carlos "Botong" Francisco, A Nation Imagined

Carlos "Botong" Francisco, FILIPINO STRUGGLES THROUGH HISTORY Oil on canvas, 1964, (located at ManilaCity Hall) A National Cultural Treasure owned by the City of Manila
Carlos Botong Francisco: A Nation Imagined is the latest art installation at the AyalaMuseum in Makati to celebrate the 100th birthday anniversary of Carlos “Botong” Francisco (1912-1969), a Philippine National Artist. Forty paintings and lithographs were culled from various private collections to form this exhibition. Of the large scale paintings on display, Maria Makiling and Fiesta, both oil on canvas, are representative of the indigenous genre which Botong loved to portray. In Maria Makiling, Botong reveals a relaxed and recumbent woman with her legs dangling in the cool waters of the stream and playing with an exotic deer by her side. Fiesta is about how the Filipino people gather to celebrate an important occasion, be that a religious feast or a wedding. The central figures are dancing the tinikling, a po…

Buaya Beach
It was summer in the Philippines and we really wanted to go to the Gigantes group of islands. But we had no desire to join the throng of beach pilgrims who wanted to take the iconic selfie from the hill above the white sand beach of Cabugao Gamay. So here we were on Buaya (crocodile) beach in Sicogon, waiting for our lunch to be served, enjoying a cool drink under the shade of this old Talisay tree and looking at the Gigantes islands from our comfortable roost.
