Davao's Christmas Bazaar 2008

11:04 AM

I've been taking up walking lately around Davao, hoping to shed off some of these kilos gained from months of eating sisig and unlimited rice, and it's amazing what one discovers along the road.

Such as this Christmas Bazaar at the Davao Convention happening this weekend! I saw it the other day when I went to Holiday Gym and Spa (reserved for another blog post) and my jaw dropped.
I love bargain hunting! That's why despite the recession in my purse, I braved the rain, snubbed the Gaisano Mall midnight sale and went to Davao Convention Centre.
As expected, it's retail therapy haven. I saw gorgeous shirts and dresses,outrageous home furnitures and little things I don't really need but want to take home with me such as the Team Manila wall clock where Jose Rizal's face was plastered in it.
Friends told me not to buy since I can easily do my bargain shopping at Greenhills in Manila coz they're more likely to be exported from there and sold here in exuberant prices.
Part of it may be right but some pretty and interesting booth displays caught my attention and when their banner indicates a multiply.com address I decided to just browse and maybe shop online which I'll be featuring on my next post!

The Christmas Bazaar 2008 is celebrating its 10th year with over 200 booths and the biggest bazaar to be held at the Davao Convention and Trade Center (DavCon) in Florentino Torres Street, Davao City with FREE admission on the following dates:

November 28, 2008 from 5:00PM to 12 midnight
November 29 and November 30, 2008 from 10:00AM to 12 midnight
December 01, 2008 from 10:00AM to 9:00PM
The number of people at the Bazaar last night could've fooled you that there's no recession at all. A friend commented on one family where Papa Bear took out wads of pesosesoses and gave it to the Mama and Baby Bears. Recession? What recession?
