“SM City North EDSA Expat Experience” relates our latest shopping adventure in the Philippines. It was a chaotic shopping trip. I was almost convinced Filipinos in Manila had started their Christmas shopping early. After all, the Philippines has the longest Christmas season in the world and begins September 1st.
We recently made a trip to Metro Manila. We stayed for five nights at the cozy and comfortable Stone House Hotel Pasay. Only three kilometers from the SM Mall of Asia, Stone House, doesn’t offer five-star accommodations. But it does give the budget-conscious traveler great budget options for staying in Manila.
We’re planning an upcoming visit to SM Mall of Asia in mid-July. My asawa and I are accompanying her sister Majorie, an OFW, Overseas Foreign Worker, back to Manila so she can catch her flight back to Kuwait. My sister-in-law has been working in Kuwait for over six years now.
