Bargain Finds from Uniwide Coastal Mall

I once heard Uniwide Coastal Mall is closing shop, but it seems it’s just a rumor because it remains operational up to this day. Anyway, the hubby and I finally got the chance to go there last Monday afternoon and we were lucky to find some really nice items for our home.

It was like she custom-made all of those items for me and what I only needed to do was buy and take them home. So off the good daughter approached the payment counter and bought them all. She even paid for the stuff her mom wanted for herself. Haha.
