I have been meaning to write about Tiendesitas for ages. My sister, Ofie, had kept egging me to ask my friends to bring me there, and I feel so bad that I didn’t get to go until the 9th of May, just a few days before I left.
It didn’t help that I had my Dad, my sister-in-law, my brother, the babies and my bestfriend Fe in tow — and believe it or not, it was their first time there like mine. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay as long as I wanted because it was pretty hot and late in the day already. And I can’t remember now why but I was pressed for time in the evening because we had to hurry back to the hotel. (If I remember right, it was because we had a dinner date with Alan’s high school friend and my friend, Demi.)
I had to leave this post halfway through and lo and behold, Ces stopped by to leave me a line and said:
good for you to have taken photos of tiende…been there for like 3 times and all i did was shop! hahaha..and eat:)
which sort of makes me feel kind of bad because I didn’t even get the chance to sample all those goodies at the sprawling food court. (For one, it was open air and it was hot.. and secondly, it was far from the parking area where my Dad was milling around.)
But I enjoyed Tiendesitas incredibly — what with the boutiques/stalls that sold their own designer jewelry and accessories. Thanks to my sister-in-law Jemine’s great haggling skills, I got big bargains and left happy but wishing I had more time to shop.
