U.P. Town Center

U.P. Town Center

Living in South East Asia malls are a life staple. You need toilet paper, go to the mall. You need groceries, at the mall. Your dentist, also at the mall. I try to break the mold and get in as much green as I can but I also get excited about new malls as silly as it sounds. U.P. Town Center is refreshing. It has a large courtyard in the middle, new departments stores and specialty restaurants, plus it had the first lending library in The Philippines. So cool! The whole Katipunan area has the best vibe. Here are a few of the places that caught my eye.

Wellworth Department Store had the whole college feel going on. The selection was just right and did not overwhelm me as so many do. The kids section was adorable. It may have the same items as other department stores but it is presented in such a visually appealing way that you actually want to shop there. The brick and mortar Cath Kidston store did not disappoint. It continued to shatter my dreams of ever owning a real Kidston. I just can't justify the 6000php price tag. Nonetheless, it was pretty to look at. Wonderbake was heaven! Pure heaven. Again, the selection was similar, maybe had a few specialty items. However, it was organized in such a way that you felt like you could see everything and enjoy them! A cupcake liner tier? Yes please. Merkado's salad section is really what blew me away. I mean...greens for days! Yes, yes please. Something for everyone at U.P. Town Center. There is currently a minion now. And the holy of holies. I kid. But seriously, Flying Dutchman Home I'm pretty sure you incepted all my home dreams. *I have a weakness for baskets. Bonus: they have an online store! Pretty sure I need this whole display in my house. With my house full of men this is a necessity. I die! Your ceramics slay me. Just showing off and sitting pretty. Oh hey, you're home for the holidays. :) He's currently in the boys room and matches their beds perfectly. This sweet reindeer is fitting in nicely with our Nordic Christmas.It seems silly but when food is beautiful you enjoy it more. I am blessed and grateful to have this luxury. Until next time U.P. Town Center. Muah!
