My Top Ten Online Shopping Sites in the Philippines

A long time ago, in a far-away land, shopaholic residents like me spend their endless rainy weekends in a box-like structure called the shopping mall.  It was a place where the crowds gather-like there was no other place to go- trying on clothes, testing gadgets, deciding on which running shoes to get. 

I am no longer part of that long-ago crowd…

I have wisened up.

I am now doing my shopping the quick, simple and effective way. I am doing my shopping the online way.

In the past decade, the local online scene has grown in leaps and bounds with hundreds of online sites offering a variety of stuff.  It is literally a jungle out there!   But how to sort out the bad to the “pwede na” to the stand-out online stores?
