Bargains that are just perfect for our holiday gift giving and also self-giving awaits you at the Cebu City Night Bazaar.
Here are some great finds you don’t want to miss.
For the little ones
You can definitely say the famous line “Hanggang saan aabot ang 20 pesos mo?” for you can already buy toys for 20 pesos. There are also cute baby clothes that are just perfect for your little pamangkins. You can also add those lovely ribbons and headbands to the girls to complete the look.
There are shades, fashion glasses, wallets, purse and sandals for the ladies. Trendy everyday shoes for both men and women is also in abundance so you’ll have your pick.
Affordable blouses and polo shirts that are ootd-worthy. Shorts as low as 100 pesos.
And you can even find make up and beauty products there.
There are also small items like handkerchiefs, fancy jewelries and fashion accessories.
Apple, orange, “kiat-kiat” (small oranges), ponkan and grapes are just some of the delicious fruits you can purchase. Fruits prices range from 5-50 pesos.
If you have damaged chargers and headsets, you’ll easily find replacements there. And you can also head there if you are in need of USB cables, batteries, and phone cases.
There’s the well-loved tempura and kwek-kwek with the distinct and kind of strange way that Cebuanos eat it. Topped with pipino and guso.
There are also:
- Twisted potatoes and hotdogs on stick, fries in a cup
- steamed yellow corn, cooked mani/peanuts
- Isaw, ballot pinoy
- Fruit and powdered shakes
And it won’t be complete without the go-to meal in “Pungko-Pungko” with fried chicken, ngohiong, bolabolas, hotdogs, longganisa, and of course the infamous lumpia.
The night market clearly won’t disappoint you in your holiday shopping.
It is said that the night bazaar will last until the end of January 2020 and talks about it being relocated to a vacant lot in the city should be enough to give us hope that it will be here for quite some time.
