DIVIMART ~ Divisoria Prices in a Mall Setting

Welcome to DIVIMART!

This place is a real haven for budget shoppers, who doesn't have the heart to brave the terrible Manila traffic to shop in Divisoria. This is the place to shop, if you want to stretch your hard earned Pesos.
This mall seems to have everything at very low prices.
Groceries, school supplies, cosmetics and accessories, account for most of the First floor.



Cutie fashion accessories ~ perfect for your little divas (I am sure my niece's eyes will popped-out with the sight of all these pretty bows and hairclips) ~ priced at P40 and up.

Wallets and pouches made of canvas  ~ P80 and up per set.

Pretty character backpacks ~ starting at P240. 


Character loot bag set, nice for your child's next party ~ priced at P40 and up.


Or DIY with these goodie bags/drawstrings, priced at P20 and up.





These school supplies make good loot bag fillers.




These metallic balloons will complete your birthday party at P19 and up. 


School supplies ~



Housewares, appliances, toys and apparel is seen at the Second floor.


Food trays are priced at P120 and up a piece.  




Tents at only P900. 


Apparel section is only about 1/5th of the upstair's floor, but enough to choose from.



If you are shopping with kids, stay away from the toys' section.



I spent about 2-3 hours roving about and checking out all the merchandise.   They have so much stuff, packed inside DiviMart.   I was literally all over the place, but I didn't felt tired one bit.  I think it helped that the place was air-conditioned.

The only downside is the limited parking space.  Parking could be a problem if you are arriving late.

My favorite buys for the day:

 Pok√©mon Cap ~ P75each
Silicon ice tray ~ P45
Toothpick ~ P20





DiviMart is located behind the New Taytay Public Market; And is just a short walk from the Taytay Tiangge Market.

Celebrating Our Lola's Birthday Luau Style


My Lola just turned 94 years old ~ Luau Style!

Two weeks before her birthday, I asked her how does she want to celebrate her birthday.  With out blinking her eyes she told me, she want to go to Hawaii (me and my big mouth).

One of her daughters, who resides in the States celebrated her Golden Wedding Anniversary in Hawaii, Lola saw the pictures and I guess that gave her the idea.  As she obviously wasn't in a travelling condition (yes plus the budget constraints)...

We decided to give her a Luau Birthday Party instead!

She was so prepped and excited.

I was kidding her the whole time, that she should ready her bikini as she is having a Luau Pool Party. 



What's a Luau without water right? So we rented a private resort near our place. 

We ordered a Luau inspired cake with matching themed cup cakes.





My cousin who owns JPJ Food Craze cooked for us,
such  labor or love. 


(My cousin and my mom).

Goofing with a pineapple... 

Our Lola, looking radiant as she inspects the revelry.


With her apo sa tuhod.



Blowing her candles (she only blew one, blowing 94 candles would take forever to finish).


And look who dropped by ~ Mr. Spidey~ Checking on our Lola!  How cool is that?


It was a sunny day, perfect for a Luau Birthday Party.

Swimming time ~ Kids!!!


Happy Birthday Nanay ~  We love you!!!

Now we could start planning for your 95th Birthday.
