Find out what makes Mandaluyong a shopping haven


Where do you usually go for your home needs? Are you the type who loves to visit secondhand shops or do you visit the malls first? Feel free to explore and always be on the lookout for affordable finds.

Real Living Associate Stylist Dagny Madamba shares some tips if you’re in the Mandaluyong area. “Mandaluyong is a haven for the veteran home shopper. The Regalong Pambahay warehouse offers 20% discount for regular-priced items, while in Kapitolyo is the lovely store Anuc Casa Di Arredamento, which offers unique home accessories and furniture in fab prints. While you’re there, grab a bite at Kapitolyo’s wonderful restos like Poco Deli, Milky & Sunny, and Epic Café!”
