SHOPPING IN MANILA

There's no better way to fight off jet lag(14-hour time difference!)  than to go shopping with my sisters.

{This photo was taken from W17, a very chic asian furniture store
I got distracted from all the eye candy I only managed to take 2 photos}

Here is the other one.  A chinese chippendale chair made of shells...


We also went to Balikbayan Handicrafts(it is more of a souvenir, touristy store) but they had a lot of goodies too.

venetian mirror...


shell napkin rings...


 wooden elephants...



 capiz lotus candle holders in every color...


bamboo baskets...



and straw baskets...



Believe it or not, I didn't get a single thing.  (More stores to visit!)


We ended at my sisters' shop called Religioso (our maiden name, more on this later).

It sure is nice to be home.

Have a great weekend everyone!

That altar table reminds me of the one I found on CL. Is it too expensive to ship things back? Wow, what great stuff they have there.

I miss home so much and i love all the stuff there. It's ok not to get anythign from Balikbayan handicrafts, if you have time, go to Quiapo ilalim instead, same stuff, half the price! BTW, didn't know you guys own a store? Where? must visit when I go home. Enjoy!
