My Shopping Haul from "Mall Of Korea"

Wanna take a peek on my shopping haul here at the newest fashion haven in town? Come, shop with me! 

The Philippines has started to appreciate and adore Korean or K-Pop culture, I guess when it  penetrated our local televison sometime in May of 2009, via "Boys Over Flowers." That "Koreanovela" as we call it, has earned tremendous amount of followers while the "Flower Four" or "F4" fever continuea to capture the hearts of many. The famous group was led by Lee Min Ho who plays Gu Jun Pyo opposite the popular South Korean actress Ku Hye-sun who plays Geum Jan Di in the story.

After the airing of that said South Korean television series here in our country, we had embraced the Korean culture by patronizing the kind of fashion they have up until now. Another way is by appreciating the K-Pop sound,  learning their language and by eating Korean food products. 

Around two years before the Korean television invasion, I myself had an opportunity to work with Korean peeps. I was once a private ESL teacher who had taught three different Korean girls named Ana (more vocal one), Stacy (shy one) and Lala (youngest and smartest). I have learned to understand their culture and in a way adapt to them most specially when it comes to food. I report and go to their unit in Emerald building along Emerald Ave. (now F. Ortigas Jr. Road) Pasig City, three or four times a week. 

So let us now go back to present time. Just recently, I had an invitation and guess what? It is to experience a shopping spree at the newly opened "Mall of Korea," located at the second level of Metrowalk. 

The "Mall of Korea" covers a huge area (2,400 sqm.) of the second floor of Metrowalk Complex along Meralco Ave., Ortigas Centre, Pasig City.

I was actually amazed when I got to see the Korean fashion store that's so big as this! 

The main entrance of the "Mall of Korea" 


This is how it looks like inside, well this is just only a part of the whole interior of the newest "mall-like" Korean fashion store in Metro. 

Before anything else, I would just like to give you a brief background of this shop... 

Annyeonghaseyo!!! 


As we are all very familiar with this, since we often hear this phrase "Annyeonghaseyo," in Korean, it is an informal greeting which would mean "How are you," "Hello," "Good Morning," "Good Afternoon," and "Good Evening." 


Ms. Nina Lee (right)  together with Mr. Myke Celis, PR and media relations strafegist during the soft opening of "Mall of Korea." 

Based from what I've learned, Ms. Nina Lee has been a designer (Korean) since 1975. Her very first shop was established in Myeongdong, Korea and since then her market has grown until it reached a total of 60 branches in Korea. She has also been the director of Korea Business Association from 1987-1992. 

It was a real pleasure meeting her in person and I would like to congratulate and thank her for bringing the "Mall of Korea" here in the Philippines. 


But wait! There's more!  The "Mall of Korea" has a lot in store for all of us. They have an upcoming Rainy Day Promotion, Back to School Activations, Corporate Tie-ups, Holiday Campaign Launch and Online PRs.


Come! Let me tour you around the Metro, I mean around the industrial themed "Mall of Korea." 


From fashionable wearables 



To trendy bags


Korean accessories





Trying this 2-in-1 bracelet and ring on myself, nice huh?!

They've got Men's Apparel section





My blogger/friend Aris is in search for his Korean-inspired top. 

According to the "Mall of Korea" management, they are in the process of exporting more men's apparel to give the guys additional options and a much wider array of fab selections.





Another good thing here at the "Mall of Korea," when you're in doubt or needy of a second opinion from a fashion and style expert, they have it! 


Now we go to my first item... my other friends have chosen their sleepwears already, and it's my turn to pick. Hmmmm.... 




This is my pick! First item on my cart! Isn't it cute? Btw, this one costs Php299.We'll all be using our sleepwear dresses during our second sleep over. So eggzoited!!!

Am I a picky shopper? 




Definitely no. Oh well, in a way, yes (hahaha!) You see, I just want my searchy and keen eyes to be satisfied just like when eating right? We explore different kinds of food until we discover and find something good... something worthy, practical, affordable, fashionable, stylish and not out of trend. 

As I was saying, I've mentioned about being a practical and affordable, right? Well, what do you know, Eureka! I've found an array of sale items just right over here! 


The container was divided into two. To your right, you can find the items for only Php100 while on the other side, to your left, the all the items there are worth Php200. 

Me and my blogger/friend Gracee got ourselves three pairs of cutee and colorful socks for only Php100. Not bad, huh?! 



See this machine-knitted long sleeves blouse? This only costs Php200, such a fab find, right? 




This floral haltered blouse is a free size one. Good thing it still fits me. Only Php200, want to have one? 

There are also awesome stuffs for kids! 



Some of the kids stuff that they will surely appreciate! 




Disney Characters T-shirts for the kiddos! 



Here are some of the elegant and more classy Korean fashion, and a bit pricey though but still worth it since it's authentic and of high quality. 







With another blogger/friend Justine, we just love ti pose in front of the huge mirror! 



Hey look! I got a real great and fashion find here! Posing with my Korean-inspired jumpsuit and this costs only Php499! I also used a stylish black envelope clutch bag, matchy-matchy huh?! 




Yes! We're all lined up here at the cashier. We just have to spend a total of Php2000. We'll see which item should we let go or keep? Hmmm.... 


Now it's my turn! I had to let go of 3 items, but I still feel happy and satisfied with what's in my shopping cart. I got a total of Php2,097. I guess it's fair enough since I had so much fun shopping and fitting those Korean apparels. 



For all those shopping moments I've spent, searching, inspecting, fitting and picking up items here at the "Mall of Korea," I have Davi with me, the ever-reliable, dependable and very cheerful Davi. So if you happen to visit and shop here, go look for her, she'll readily help you. Thanks so much Davi girl, 'til we meet again! 




The true essence if shopping is when you don't have regrets at all and you enjoy doing it with your friends or loved ones!!! 


Here's what inside my cart, my shopping haul from #MallOfKorea
