Trip to Madison Galeries Lifestyle Mall

A few weeks ago I bought a Deal Grocer voucher for my husband. Since we live in the South area, I chose the Madison Galeries branch. Fast forward to my husband's appointment, I was hesitant to go with him kasi mapapagastos lang kami kasi like his colon-cleansing, napakain kami sa The Farm Organics while waiting. But in the end, sumama pa rin kami ng anak ko.

It was our first time in Madison Galeries, a boutique mall located in Alabang. According to their website, it is specifically designed for the Alabang community kaya pala sosyal ang interiors. The lifestyle mall offers restaurants, retail stores, specialty services, entertainment, bank, supermarket, and even office space.

Mardi Gras Bazaar 3

On our way to Karada, I already saw banner and poster of Mardi Gras Bazaar 3 Warehouse Clearance Sale! Up to 80% daw. When we reached the third level, ang dami tao malapit sa escalator; akala ko kung ano meron, nandun pala yung bazaar. We’re still early for the appointment so we went inside. No entrance fee.

When I entered the room, I was happy that I changed my mind at sumama ko kasi napashopping na ko ng Christmas gifts nang walang kahirap-hirap. There is no shopping cart or basket so I have no choice but to buy an eco-bag para may paglagyan ako habang namimili. It was funny kasi nung napaparami na kami nakuha, nagkatanungan na kami kung magkano ba dala namin cash. Baka wala pala kami pambayad pagdating sa cashier. Hehehe! The bazaar is not that big so we were done in less than an hour.


After putting our shopping bags in the car, we went straight to KARADA. I bought Heal Your Aches & Pains: 90-Minute AP & BT by a Local Trainer voucher at Deal Grocer for P1675, the regular price is P2,095. KARADA is a Japanese Body Therapy and they have more than 300 branches across the globe. They offer different packages, you can choose AP Balance, Body Treatment, Foot Treatment, or a combination. You have the option to choose a local trainer or Japanese trainer, of course, mas mahal kapag Japanese. My husband was very much satisfied with his first session and sabi nung therapist balik daw after a week. Waah! Ang gastos naman kung weekly session. But I’m sure we will buy another voucher again pag may promo sa Deal Grocer ulit. I will share more information in a separate post.

Nonna’s Trattoria

After my husband treatment, we went to Nonna’s Trattoria restaurant. We wanted to avail the Buy 1 Get 1 Pizza promo that we got from the bazaar. “For every P1500 worth of single or accumulated receipts from Mardi Gras Bazaar”. Unfortunately, the restaurant was full so sayang hindi namin nagamit.

Burnt Cookies PH 

We checked other restaurants pero wala kami type na kainan, sa kakaikot namin, we found another bazaar. While walking, we got a free taste of cookie at Burnt Cookies and after tasting it napabalik kami sa kiosk. The price is not cheap so we just bought two pieces, we bought Chocolate Chunks and Chips Cookies P80 and Bittersweet Cookies P90.

The cookie needs to be refrigerated but we ate everything on our way home. My husband said, “Sarap noh, kaso ang mahal”. I told him, butter pa lang kaya mahal na. I also bake so I know na nag-iiba talaga lasa depende sa ingredients na gamit mo. The cookies may be expensive but it is really good, after taking a bite you can tell that they are using premium ingredients.

And because of the taste, naparesearch ako nang bigla and I found our that they are using chocolates from Mindanao. Yes, you’ve read it right they are buying chocolates from @aurochocolates and @malagoschocolates. I’m pretty sure, aware na kayo na ang Malagos Chocolate is an award-winning Philippine Chocolate. They received a lot of awards both local and international and the recent one is “2019 International Chocolate Awards”.
