A photo gallery of goodies from Dapitan Arcade

IMG_1209
Lace shared to me that there’s this area in Dapitan that sells good home decors and accessories, and also some Christmas ornaments and decors, I told her that I know Dapitan st. in Manila because I go there during my elementary years when I was studying in UST, I walked and ride the bicycle surfing the start and end of Dapitan st. there are times that I’ve been searching for the house of grade school crush and also the house of my best friend, but as time goes by, during my college years, I go here with my barkada at night just to meet some tropa to do band rehearsals and eat good tapsilog.

Okay wait.nawala na sa story yung Dapitan Arcade..Okay, she learned about Dapitan Arcade after she saw a tv feature by Kris Aquino, she told me that the home decors are neatly cheap and affordable, I told her that we should shop somewhere else and maybe Baclaran or Divisoria is a good place to shop for home decors, but she doesn’t like to go there, and then after a few days, her wish came true….. we attended a meeting somewhere in QC and then the idea came up that we go to Dapitan Arcade after her meeting…so I pump up my iPhone4s and check the Foursquare and its map and saw the location of Dapitan Arcade, I told her that its near to our location and it’s a few minutes drive away via Quezon Ave.

It rained that day but it didn’t stop us in visiting Dapitan Arcade. I lived in Manila in half of my life and I didn’t know about this Dapitan Arcade, but the place is familiar for me, its one of the places that I avoided during my youngling years, because I thought that it is a wet and dry market hahaha.
