And it is ALLLLLL made in china. It is unfreaking unbelievable. No wonder China is the new sh-it. And honestly that's what I want my country to be next........

Manufacture all those branded names in the Philippines. So we will be the new China.
omg we're arguing about which are supposed to be tagged as luxury malls, nvm that i will put that aside.

Pff my friend went to Paris few years ago to buy this LV stuff because its cheaper there, and its tagged "made in Indonesia" and she put it back to the shelf, lol.

Not necesarily all made in China, many of the shops like of Topman, Zara and many others of this brands are made in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Indonesia, Mexico, Brazil and occasionally i would see an African country names. I heard you can buy Armani jeans and clothing dirt cheap in Bangladesh lol, its almost the same in here for some of the items which you can easily and cheaply find in the factory outlets of Bandung. Don't worry with the rise of China comes higher cost, sooner or later many factories will relocate to cheaper areas and Philippines happens to be full of laborers.

In fact I will make a bet - look at your hermes, or gucci or whatever brand clothes you have look where it is made -

I will bet you 100 pesos it is made in china! LOOOOOOL!
Zara and other Spanish boutiques are not really Made in China. Most are made in Portugal, Spain and Mexico.

Swedish brand H&M are mostly made in Bangladesh, India and Turkey.

Irish brand Primark are all still made in Ireland.

Lol arrogance? im sorry if you see it that way, but it was all the truth and whether you like it or not my country happens to be big producer of textiles and also housed designer brands (i didn't say that we are better either because its not). I didn't buy it and there is no pride in it to me either, im not that rich but i know a lot of people who does. I just proved that we have more store available that is all. Philippines do have high number of laborer and what is wrong with that? you can dream of your country to be the new China and there is nothing wrong with it.

Pictures or you lie. Did you open your Ipod? I actually am not sure if it was Ipod or Iphone? But definitely the older model. The fat one.

I am talking about the battery not the Ipod/Iphone itself. Did you open yours?

Some people here just can't accept the fact that the Philippines is really moving. All they thought Metro Manila is just a so so Metro. When in fact it has so much things to offer, has a nitch as compared to those tagged as Alpha city.

Aside from those big Shopping Malls, BPO, Entertainment Centers, Arena, another nitch of the greater Metro Manila are the hidden Eco-zones not every travellers can enter into/see.

So those lambasting Metro Manila. You better watch out. I have nothing against any other city in the world, but I am here to let others know more about Metro Manila and the whole Philippines.

What is wrong with you? Take some anger management class. lol. Do you see how silly and stupid you look?

Anyway, people can make up their own mind. We just show facts here. There is no need to feel so mad about things like this. Stop being hysterical.

Anyway, as you can see, Indonesian love to shop. Not just in Jakarta, but in many malls across the country, they have great brands available.
