One day in Manila for shopping - would you?

So we come from Australia, going to Singapore then Boracay then I was thinking to get my cheap shopping fix would one day in Manila be worth it to stock up on shoes, handbags, perfume & clothing ?? Is it really that good and worth me making the stop on the way home from Boracay ?

Ok thank you - my husband is interested in surf clothes ie. billabong quiksilver etc would this be cheaper ? Are the "non genuine" clothes good quality?

Can you believe it? because I am kuripot and the cheaper ones here are crap. kaputt after a month. dvd players as well. so I bought everything in the Philippines. better quality and cheaper. bali is for Westerner's pockets. bad value for money. they also don't have travel size body washes, lotions etc...so I hauled those as well. 40 kilos worth.

I sound like the Australians going to Bali and hauling stuff. I wonder what they would do in the Philippines when shopping is better and waaaaaaaaaaay cheaper.

Also hauled teak lamps, frames, mirrors fr Bali to the Philippines. Hehe. Best of both worlds.

You can get those "shirts" in Shopesville 3rd floor, quality is good but they aren't very cheap. I forgot the name of the store.
