Useful Basic Filipino Phrases When Shopping

English to Filipino Translation

Note:  It is fun to shop in the Philippines. It is where you can see some of the biggest malls. According to Wikipedia, SM Shopping Malls are listed as Worlds Largest Shopping Malls. There are side street stores, but it is safer to shop in the shopping malls. Many people there love to shop in Divisoria and Baclaran, where you could find cheap stuff, or bargains, but they can be dangerous areas for foreigners. It is safer to explore said areas with someone who knows the place. Everyone (includes the residents) should be careful from snatchers on the streets and some populated areas. Of course, you can always find sincere and nice people who can help out :).
