Divisoria Christmas shopping rushCategories Places
Soak into this rich multimedia slideshow to have a better feel of what’s it like to be in Divisoria! 40 images, a short commentary, ambient sounds and a Christmas carol all in one interesting package.
This is the third Christmas feature for 2008. The other three are Bibingka, puto bumbong and simbang gabi, Bright and colorful parols lighting the holidays and Cordova pabuto.
During the holiday season, it’s not only about the Christmas spirit,Â parolsÂ andÂ misa de galloÂ orÂ simbang gabi, most of all, unfortunately, it’s about shopping. The best place to go for cheap and affordable goods is no other than Divisoria in Manila. Think of this as one giant marketplace for such goods likeÂ original or bootleg,Â local and imported items from food, clothes to decors and other bric-a-brac that overwhelms in terms of variety. “prepare to haggle and wade through the throng…” All at almost rock bottom prices. Shops and stalls can be found inside the malls like the popular 168, sidestreets, and just every space available overtaken by vendors and shoppers alike.
On the weekends before Christmas week, Â prepare to haggle and wade through the throng as the path gets narrower and narrower with people walking shoulder to shoulder amidst the cacophony of blaring disco music, microphone handling barkers and the probing questions of bargain hunters, all hoping to make a profit or buy that present for the holidays.
Note: The above slideshow originally appeared in my portfolio blog, my initial attempts of making a multimedia slideshow.

Very nice Estan! Including the commentary. I miss Divisoria. Pagtanggap ng 13th month pay…diretso na ako dyan to buy all the pamaskong regalo. Pag talggang in a tight budget, Divisoria is the place to be. Ingat lang talaga sa mga mandurukot.
divi during the holidays is such a mad rush…
