What I bought for 2,000php at SM North Edsa's GREAT NORTHERN SALE

I was reading this CNN report last night analyzing why the Philippine economy grew robustly in the 1st quarter of 2012 despite the global slowdown, the crisis in Europe, the cooling down of economies of India and China.There were a few reasons mentioned.One of which is the fact that the Philippine economy is driven by consumption.

True.Go to shopping malls and you don't feel that there is a Global Slowdown.Crisis?What Crisis?Not in Manila and definitely not in Quezon City where the GREAT NORTHERN SALE is ongoing.

If you haven't---where have you been?Everybody's going crazy about it.And while I don't usually prefer braving the crowd,me and my wife decided to give it a go.The challenge is to restrict the budget to a particular amount and see how far it can go.In our case 2,000php.My wife's big grin turned into a frown in a second when I told her that.I understand her though.What can you buy with two thousand pesos these days? More so,it is easier to think of a single item that would cost two thousand pesos than think of small items you can buy out of it.

So what did we buy with our 2,000 pesos?
Told my wife to stick on small item that would be very helpful.So there should be justification why these items were picked.Mostly by my wife :(


1) A 5-piece handkerchief, large,assorted colors.
