Eat Play SHOP :)

Best Blogger Tips
Us girls consider shopping as a cure to our most common sicknesses (depression, stress, heartache, PMS, mood swings or even topak) - with no approved therapeutic claim.  As I can consider myself (feelingera) an ambassadress of style, shopping and great deals, I would like to share my crazy and fun moments in one of the ultimate shopping festivals here in Dubai - Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). 

DSF started on Feb. 15, 1996 which is committed to vivify retail trade in Dubai, thus encouraging tourists to come and visit the country. This month long event for this year started in January 20th and will end on February 20th. DSF is topped with bonggang happenings and surprises. The parades, daily evening shows, fireworks display, concerts, gold and car raffle draws, desert camp and night souqs await the shoppers. Who can ever resist 75% sales and discounts at over 6,000 retail outlets in 50 shopping malls? In this exploit you can find the best deals on tax free products. 

Al Seef Street Celebration (EAT)
Yes, you can haggle
This made my night
Basta ako nabusog sa kwek kwek
Mga produkto nila
It's still caffeine
Guys dancing to I don't know what

Acoustic Guitar Performer
Pinoy Street FOOD!!

Night Souq and Perya at Al Rigga Street  (PLAY) - It was almost 12 midnight when we went to the Night Souk and I was surprised to see tons of people in Rigga St. Note to self - DXB is vampire land. 

Ang tatanda na adik pa rin sa toys?
Welcome to my playground :)

Bakit ang daming tao?
Going gaga over the stuffed toys
Manong Crepe

Game time!
Trying my luck

and again...
Too small :(
Impatiently waiting for my turn

No such luck :(

Mirdiff City Center (SHOP) - Time for some real shopping!! 

Shop and Win!

H&M, 1 day na lang
Performers on stage
The crowd

Pwedeng lahat?

My lab, Rach, testing the merchandise
My friend Chat, taking a breather.

Rona and Chat can't help themselves.

Ako pa rin ang wagi pagkatapos. Pagod pero sobrang saya ko lang :)

This DSF, I discovered true nourishment by EATING in the streets of Al Seef; the power of PLAYING in Al Rigga and the inner peace and balance by SHOPPING!! (Parang Eat Pray Love lang talaga). We have our own reasons to shop - to socialize, for status, for necessities, to escape this cruel world or to use it for therapy. Whatever it is, we should always bargain hunt and "Thou shalt not overspend" (ahem..ahem..). To my fellow shopaholics, we have about 2 more weeks to deal with this madness and to those peeps not in Dubai, lipad na and shop your heart out.
