I didn't throw any garbage about the Phil, i just threw facts because you keep saying "we are better", i wouldn't argue about the BPO industry. But since you blabber alot about your industry, i just say what's our industries are. I didn't throw garbage about the Philippines either.

These three claims I was able to back-up. Not just claim.
I argue we have better selection of designer brands and the selections are more complete, thus making our mall better for shopping, the price is surprisingly lower than KL too from my experience.

you want evidence of the listing of the brands so here it is:

Hence, you've got wrong facts about the Philippines. (E.g. We are the poorest?).

Make sure your facts are right so you wont sound boastful. I know Singapore is a very much progressive country but never tell that they have a bigger economy. Remember that Philippine economy is bigger, atleast in terms of PPP.

Why not include all brands, whether luxury or not. Afterall, not all will buy luxurous things. There are more shopping malls in the Philippines (and Metro Manila) isn't it? And these shopping malls are even bigger than malls in Indonesia. I already gave support for this.

Anyways, I know Indonesia is really really promissing. But never belittle the Philippines, more particularly Metro Manila. hehe.

Yeah i should've included "one of", anyway i wouldn't include ppp since its very innacurate to indicate a country's wealth. Singapore's GDP is currently bigger so no Ph's economy is smaller than Singapore alone, atleast for now.

People are consumptive, that's how Singapore become a prime luxurious shopping destination, while Philippines with all its big malls simply didn't become attractive destination. Look at HK or Times Square of NYC too, how these 2 becomes such a famous shopping hub and how many designer brands are on the streets and shopping centers. So again even if Ph's mall is bigger, but it doesn't host these famous global designer brands, it simply won't be a better shopping destination.

Does Metro Manila have 174 malls and shopping centers in a city alone? Jumlah Mall di Jakarta 2014 | Kumau Info (numbers of mall in Jakarta). Actually i doubt there are more malls in Philippines, since in the country's cities there tend to be atleast one minor malls, and Philippines is much smaller country.

It seems my definiition of luxury mall with you is different, i am talking about Patek Philippe, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hermes, Dior, Mulberry or the likes of that, not just random street wear or famous brand like Zara or H&M. Its narrowed down to: Greenbelt 4, Shangrila Plaza, Powerplant Mall, Resort world mall (although this one is very small). If it doesn't have those labelled as "luxury" then its just another mall.

In Jakarta these are the big 5 are: Plaza Senayan, Senayan City, Grand Indonesia, Pacific Place and the Plaza Indonesia.

In Surabaya only Ciputra World Surabaya and Grand City Surabaya i would consider upscale, in Bandung there is Transtudio mall although it barely have luxury designer brand.
