Loving the witty names that stalls have here. This place is aptly named MuraDito as I found sports bras for as low as 100 and trendy and cute OOTD pieces that are priced at 100 and above.

We were given a budget of 1000 Php and a shopping list of OOTD Items, Back to School Essentials, Rainy Day Must Haves and sulit buys.

I have added my vlog which shows the stuff I bought and my evolution of feeling fresh to looking haggard cause of the time constraints... Only 3 hours to shop in a place where I can haggle? #BitinSaOras!

Commuting to Tutuban Center: (From Las Pinas to Tutuban)

  • Take a bus to Lawton. Then take a jeep with the signage "Divisoria"
  • get off at Lucky Chinatown
  • Walk around a couple of blocks to Tutuban Center

  • If you're like me though who can't take said bus, a jeep to Baclaran would suffice.
  • Take a train (LRT1) to central station and walk towards the main road.
  • Take a jeep with the signage "Divisoria"

  2. Wow, everything for a thousand pesos! I kept on telling my mom to accompany me at Tutuban. I would want to buy brief and sando for the boys but then she just cant find time on a weekday. Weekend daw is crazy to go to Tutuban. Anyway, cant imagine talaga shoes for 200 pesos. Aliw lang. And the panty and brief and sando - all the more that I would love to go to Tutuban talaga.
