Going back SM North

Last night, I decided to take a shuttle from SM North to where I live. Anyhow, I needed stickies so I dropped by National Bookstore on SM North’s main building, the one on the ground floor. I was surprised to find out that they changed their layout because there were many Filipino graphic novels soemwhere in the middle of the store now, and the paper supplies shelves have been moved to. There was no more of the Best Buy stickies so I got Post Its.

When I went out of National Bookstore, I saw the Milko stand. That is where they sell cheap but fairly good icecream. At Php 10 per scoop, that’s really good :D I thought to myself that I ought to get a cone but knowing that there’s takoyaki at the Samurai stall near the grocery section, I headed there and bought myself some takoyaki. It’s still Php 25 per 4 pieces of it.

DEC’s was still there and I got 3 pieces of almond cake at Php 6 apiece. My mom and sister were happy to have eaten those after quiet a while already. There’s no more Plato Wraps stall. No more Mr. Popper stall either. I miss the tofu pops and the golden bun from that stall. Zagu is in that area now. So is kakaning Pilipino.

There’s also the construction at the former parking space in front of Supersale. I forgot to ask what it was but maybe we’ll find out sooner or later.

The SM North I used to go to frequently when I was still a student has changed much. Considering that I haven’t been there for months – the changes happened very fast but some things are still there like the takoyaki stall, Milko and DEC.

    Have you noticed the garden out front? They relocated the shops selling plants there, laid down a pathway and put in some coffee shops. Pretty lights at night, but I don’t hang out there… I think I’d die of lung cancer if I do.
