How do I commute to 168 Shopping Mall?
If you don't know how to commute to 168 here's a link to my favorite commuting guide: Commuting to 168 Mall. The mall's website actually has a guide as well: How to commute going to 168 Shopping Mall but I prefer Commuting in the Philippines 101's guide since it's more detailed, and it has more commuting routes compared to the official site's guide.
Where can I buy a cheongsam in the 168 Shopping Mall?
Since the mall was renovated and they added the Soler-Recto wing, I've only been to 168 a few times and frankly the layout of the stalls is a little confusing. So my sister and I probably missed a few but we did a good sweep of all floors. Out of all the stalls we've checked, we only found 3 that sell cheongsam and 2 of them only sold children's size. In retrospect, I should've taken note of the stall numbers of other 2 shops that sold cheongsam. I'll update this post next time I'll keep an eye out for them. I promise!
Anyway, after hours of looking for a shop that sells adult-sized cheongsam, we finally found one that did: Stall 3J-15! They sell adult size ones for P580 and the children's size for P480. The salesperson claimed that the price is fixed, but we were still able to haggle the price down. Always try to haggle!
Unfortunately, all they had were traditional cheongsam. For the adult size, they had 3 designs available:
Got more pics?
Of course I do! BTW all pictures were taken with my Samsung Galaxy S2. These next pictures were taken here at my bahay kubo (nipa hut):
