I arrived a bit late in SM North Edsa, the venue of the screening for Survivor Philippines. What awaited me was a sea of aspirants or should i say ambitious Filipinos, that including me, and according to my own very very accurate calculation was about 5,000.
But i went home at 6:30 whether i get interviewed or not since i have to go to work at 9:00 pm. Will go back to audition on Friday the 23rd in SM Manila.
11:50am when i arrived. Inside SM carpark, level 5
Between 1:00 to 2:00pm
Me in a still excited mode.
Some aspirants i met. Only Chedorie’s (girl) name i got, others please holler me your name here. My apologies.
I forgot or i did not get their names. These people eschewed my exhaustion. Thanks to you. Heheh
Chedorie and Mr. Bubbly guy
I seldom buy or eat at Shangri-la Plaza. Presently, my money is not enough to purchase some stuff there. In God’s time when he increases my income, i will buy all those high priced items on display, hahaha. Although there are still a number of stores and fastfood shops that a middle class Filipino in Metro Manila can afford.
The place is worth a visit!

Makro is literally warehouse type of a department store which offer low wholesale prices to its members. In my opinion their membership method is a bane for the expansion of their business. They could have long grown faster if not for this membership.
Their prices is not really low compared to SM Hypermart. I once attempted to apply for membership, i bought a American Home personal ref for 5,299 pesos, but they don’t accept Citibank credit cards so i wen’t to SM Supermart (not Hypermarket) instead and the same ref was priced at 5, 149 pesos. The ref is now with me for four months at the time of this writing. I happened to go shopping at SM Hypermart in Mall of Asia, and i saw the American Home personal ref priced at 4,999 pesos! It’s even cheaper than SM Supermart.

SM Hypermarket, i like! Having said above, i will go to SM Hypermarket for my grocery or shopping needs and wants. No membership and no wholesale quantity requirement, but even cheaper.
[The images i shot are free to use, just do not resell it and claim it as yours.Â A map of Bonifacio High Street is included below. Thanks.]
Bonifacio High Street is located in the Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. I highly recommend this mall for those who are seeking a not so crowded place to hang out, dine, and to shop.
Bonifacio High Street is squared U shaped in plan enclosing an open court. This is completely different from the malls around Metro Manila. The shops that surrounds the court probably has three floors at the most.
