The Great Brazilian Madness Sale 2015 in Trinoma
I missed the Great Brazilian Madness Sale last year so I made sure to go to one of the grandest shoe sale this year just to check it out. My forever shopping buddy – my mom – tagged along and we had a shopping experience that’s definitely one for the books.
The long line was bearable last Friday afternoon even when the crowd was already pouring from all directions. I let my mom wait in line while I shop at The Row using my Stylist in Pocket vouchers. When I came back, my mom was nowhere to find.. Yun pala she’s already inside the cordoned area. Upon entering, they stamped my arm because I was wearing my old Ipanema slippers.
The Good: Everything is worth PhP 500 and below, and cashier lanes were organized.
The Bad: You know what the SALE label can do to people. Yung iba talaga barbaric na. Saktong sakto, madness sale nga talaga! I remember one of the organizers carrying a large box. Hindi pa siya nakakarating sa shelves, ubos na yung laman! Sandals and shoes were flying and falling all over the place. Yung ibang mga babae kung maka-balya akala mo mga football players at kung makahila ng sapatos parang nasa tug of war! LOL. Pero bakit nga ba ako mag-iinarte, ginusto ko naman pumunta doon dahil sale. I survived the MRT for 4 years, eto pa kaya! 🙂
All in all, it was both a frustrating and a funny experience for me and my mom. 🙂 Watch out because we might come prepared and ‘armed’ for the next round. Hahaha!
We found this jewel of a pair from the shelves (yung tipong tira-tira na lang!) It is my sister’s size. Grendha is love! 🙂
Ginga slippers are one of the sturdiest and comfiest rubber slippers out there. Mas affordable pa compared to other popular brands. Sulit na sulit! 🙂
We found this navy and gold slippers lying somewhere. Perfect for my mom. 🙂
The shelves in the middle were jam packed with sneakers. My mom grabbed this cute black sneakers for Lexeen for only PhP 500. 🙂
No Grendha for me, huhu. But I found my happiness with these Victoria sneakers, and at least walang nag-aagawan sa sneakers area. They are made from 100% natural cotton grown in Spain and natural rubber. I am investing in neutrals so I got the Tan. I freaked out when I realized that I’m getting a size 9 (I’m actually a 7 or an 8), but I want more wiggle space for comfort. 🙂
Another pair of sneakers, but in grey. The fabric was stained but I still love it. Dirty sneakers are more appealing, diba? 🙂
We were EXHAUSTED so we had some dumpling laksa from Paotsin. A bowl is around PhP 60 and we’re satisfied with its flavorful curry soup. Then my mom went back twice to check if there are more items available. She scored a comfy Rider pair in teal.
Christmas shopping has started and I’m so excited to shop ’til I drop this holiday season with Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales! Celebrate Black Friday & Cyber Monday at ZALORA Philippines! The rest of my shopping sprees will be online, because compared to traditional shopping, online shopping is fast and hassle-free. 🙂
