How does a family of three spend one whole day in a mall with less than P1000 to spend? Use a lot of group buying vouchers, ha ha ha
Travel doesn't mean you have to go far away from where you live. It is the company you keep that makes travelling, whether near or far, more fun.
My daughter has been bugging us for a long time to take her skating again. It's been a while since she did this activity and we thought of taking advantage of a deal which costs one day unlimited skating at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) for only P220 instead of the regular P390. We plan to go there as soon as the mall opens so that she can maximize her time on the ice.
With SM MOA being one of the biggest mall in the world, I am sure the wife and I will have plenty of time to stroll around before fetching our daughter for lunch. Feeling like a couple out on a date without a kid in tow, we will probably window show, browse through books and magazines at the National Bookstore and other book shops,or just sit on the plastic benches just people watch in the comfort of an air-conditioned mall.
For lunch, we plan to eat at Joey Pepperoni just outside the SM Department Store. My wife bought a voucher for P285 for the said establishment and it is good for 4 pizzas and 4 glasses of ice tea.
And before we leave, we will watch the fireworks display which is held every Friday and Saturday evenings at 7 PM.
The total cost for a day at the mall (excluding of course the groceries) is listed hereunder:
Jamaican Patties 99
Box of 15 Chewy Junior (Mini-Puffs) 100
Joey Pepperoni 285
Gasoline for the car 200
1.5L Soda 45
The big bulk of the expenses of course goes to food with the ice skating of the daughter coming in second. So, on the average, each of us would be spending about P331.33.
Although there are lots of group buying sites, we normally buy our vouchers from Beeconomic, Ensogo, and Metrodeal. Register so that you will be kept updated on current deals.
