    BF Ruins: Main Shopping Area in BF Homes Subdivision

    by machomikemd Written Apr 3, 2013

    The BF Ruins is actually a misnomer as the commercial area is now almost fully renovated and has a large number of commercial establishments and way biggetr than before! The BF Ruins is the main commercial area of the sprawling BF Homes Subdivision that straddles the Paranaque and Las Pinas Cities and was popular in the 1970's and the early 80's and it fell to disrepair due to the proliferation of new shopping centers near the area and became the so called "ruins". but in the early 2000's, there was a revivial as the area was slowly being rebuilt and it became a large flea market that sells everything from counterfeit dvd's, computer games, jailbreaker for phones like I phone, fashion, clothes, smart phones and much more.

    opens: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: all the items that you find at big flea markets like counterfeit dvd's, vcd's, computer and xbox games, fashion accesories, mp3's, jailbreak devices for smart phones, clothes, pet shops, antiques and way much more.

    What to pay: not a dent on your wallet

    Duty Free Philippines Main Mall: Largest Duty Free Mall in the Philippines

    by machomikemd Updated Mar 16, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the Fiesta Mall in Paranaque City is the Largest Duty Free Shopping Mall in the philippines and is owned by the government. It has a wide selection of foreign and local stuffs (unfortunately, it doesn't measure up to other duty free shops in the region)

    Caveat: You Have to Be A foreign tourist w/ passport, or local who returned abroad from a trip, and OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker), or a "Balikbayan" (filipino expatriate) to be able to shop here and for foreigners and balikbayans and OFW's, the limit is $ 2,000 and for locals, the limit is S 1,000.

    You are given up to 2 days after arrival to shop here (a weird thought since in other countries, you can shop duty free anytime as long as you present your passports to the counters)

    it has a modest food court for shoppers (but i suggest to go to La Copa Restaurant which is nearby for the food fix).

    What to buy: for OFW's, Locals and Balikbayans, Pasalubong (gifts) for the whole village (pun intended), for foreigners, Liqours, Cigarettes, Perfumeries, and other stuff. The items to shop are endless!

    What to pay: you can maxx out your credit card

    Fiesta Shopping Mall: Duty Free Shopping

    by cyndymc Updated Jun 3, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Fiesta Shopping Mall is the center for duty-free shopping in the Philippines. Whenever my husband or eldest daughter arrive from a business trip, we pass by the Fiesta Shopping Mall, which is only a few minutes drive from the airport. There are a lot of promos/freebies by the different concessionaires.

    Credit cards and local currency are honored as payment to bought items.

    What to buy: We usually buy perfumes, shoes, clothes, imported grocery items, and chocolates, of course. Occasionaly, we buy major or mini appliances.

    Lately, however, we were not that eager to go there after business trips because in our previous visit, we noticed that the merchandise mix and fashion styles are not up to the latest trends.

    What to pay: It really depends on what you intend to buy. Fiesta Shopping Mall's prices are expectedly much lower than in other Malls or other duty-free shops.It is their mission objective to offer lower prices.

    Baclaran Dry Goods Market: Wholesale or Retail Shopping

    by cyndymc Updated Jun 3, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Baclaran is one of the best known bargain centers in the country. Wholesalers and retail shoppers of garments, accessories, bags & footwear, etc. go to the flea market on the eve or during the Novena days (Wednesdays) for great shopping deals. Once, I tried weaving through the flea market after the mass at Redemptorist Church. It was exciting because of the cheap items, but at the same time it was quite scary because there were so many people, it made me suspicious of everyone who bumped my bag or body.

    I discovered the airconditioned stalls in the buildings near the church only two years ago. My cousin who owns two boutiques in the Visayas regularly went to Baclaran to buy garments and accessories on wholesale basis. I bought some pants and blouses through her so I could have bigger savings than if I bought them on retail basis. But if you don't know anyone who is a wholesaler, you can still find good buys at the Dry Goods Market. It is better to buy from stalls in buildings than the flea market because you can ask them to issue receipts, and show them if/when you decide to return the goods you bought, that is, if you find some defect when you fit it at home. (Most stalls have only improvised fitting curtains)

    What to buy: pants, blouses, t-shirts, accessories, school uniforms, and yes...even formal wear!

    What to pay: You'll be happy to know your P500 can already buy you 2-3 items, so much more if you set aside P1,000 for shopping.
