Have a merrier Christmas and shop one-of-a-kind finds at the Circuit Makati Bazaar from November 18-20!
Christmas Is Almost Near
It's the most beautiful time of the year again. As they put down the pumpkins, skeletons and what-nots and as we carefully tuck away our Halloween costumes, there is another occasion that we all love preparing for - the Christmas season!
Let's all admit it, this is the time when we excitedly scout for the best gifts to give our loved ones. Normally, we aim to give them something meaningful and useful yet affordable. I, myself, am carefully thinking about what to give as it has been a regular thing in our household when children from our community come visit me to ask for "pamasko" (present). Well, that's one of the perks of being a public servant, you get to make them happy even in small ways.
And yes, one of the most exciting part of the holidays aside from the reunions, merry-making and lots of good food - it's shopping! But hey, as a recovering shopaholic, haha...I would like to find a bazaar that has it all. Don't we all? So this year, let's all head off to Circuit Makati for this year's CIRCUIT MAKATI BAZAAR.
