My Friday was spent at the Toy Kingdom Warehouse Sale
Toy Kingdom Warehouse Sale is one of my much awaited warehouse sales every year. It always falls on a weekend and most of the time the first or second week of November. This year, it started today (04 November 2011) and will be until Sunday (06 November 2011). Since my niece would be having a ballet recital on Sunday and we have decided to stay in a hotel near the Cultural Center of the Philippines from Saturday to Monday, there is no way that we can go to the warehouse sale and buy toys, so my sister and I decided to go earlier. We arrived at exactly 10am at SM Megamall parking lot, and proceeded immediately at the Mega Trade Hall. The place was already full of shoppers. We had a hard time getting a push cart, good thing there is 1 left, so w had settle for that 1 push cart and one medium sized carton. We made our way through the aisles and aisles of discounted toys. I have a list ready of kids I'll be giving gifts this Christmas, but I was not able to use it :) On impulse, I just put anything I see that I want and was discounted at a fair price. I ended up just buying 5 Christmas gifts out of the 20 kids in my list hehe . . . Tons of the things I was able to buy are toys and items that will be prizes and items for the loot bags for Jabe's first birthday on May 2012. . . yeah, I know it is still 7 months away but I want to start early shopping for things for the party . . .We finished going through the aisles around 12noon and we decided to fall in line to pay. The line was soooo long, occupying the other aisles already making it hard to go through the items on those aisles. There were 10 cashiers, we were so unfortunate that we were placed in a cashier that was reaaallllyyyy slow! We queued for exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes before reaching the cashier and paying for the items grrrr.. .We were able to pay around 230pm already, we were so hungry and tired. awwww. . . .And now, all the shopping bags and boxes are stored in the other room waiting to be organized!
