GETAWAY IN PHILIPPINES - DAY 2 (SM Mega Mall)

What is a holiday without shopping and good food? For me, this two are utmost important  for without one of this, I will feel incomplete and unsatisfied. Knowing that SM Mega Mall is one of the biggest shopping complex in Asia, I set my foot into this giant size mall on the second day. We hired a cab for PHP250 to reach our destination in Mandaluyong within 20 minutes. We were there from 1030am till 8pm but still unable to visit all the shops.

on the way to the mall


The mall is so huge, six storey with shop lots and SM Departmental Store on each floor. According to a local, SM stands for Shoe Mart and owned by a businessman from China.

 I spotted this kiosk with a long queue.
Needless to say, I joined the queue and got myself a box of nachos with melted cheese
PHP60...tad to dried and plain for my taste buds

saw this little girl at the phone booth

caught by surprise....church inside a shopping mall

Pizza Hut kiosk....do you see this is any of our shopping mall here?

Cyber Zone/IT Floor.....it is so big


Art Gallery


Big, tidy and neat shoes store...from kids to adult (men + women).
All shoes are displayed on the rack according to various sizes.

yours truly with shopping bags

After walking for almost 4 hours, we felt hungry and had our tea break in Orchard Road Restaurant.

In conjunction with CNY, they had promotion of
 Tikoy + a glass of  ice coffee/tea @ PHP99++.
Tikoy is  sweet rice cake eaten during the festive season which is similar to our kuih bakul.  

Each pieces of tikoy are deep with beaten egg and fried till slightly brown. I find it too sweet and soft. Still prefer our fried kuih bakul tucked with yam/taro.

Set of Prawn Mee and Siu Pau @ PHP99++
Surprisingly the prawn mee which came in a small bowl tasted  quite good (even though without any hint of prawns)  with 2 fresh prawns + slices of pork + fish cake and yellow mee.
as for the steamed pork bun/siu pau, dough was soft filled with red colour marinated pork meat.

Bought these from Goldilocks Bakeshop which is a popular cakes & bakery shop in Philippines.

Ensaymda-Hamonado = Cheese Pork Bun @ PHP49
sprinkled with great amount of grated cheese on the top and embedded with slices of ring pork ham inside the soft and moist dough

Chicken Pie @ PHP35
creamy and tasty filling

Brownies Classic Small @ PHP21
Thumbs up! its fudgy and not cakey at all with moderate amount of sugar


continue....still in SM Mega Mall
