The possibilities are endless even when you're on a budget as long as you get creative! Here are different avenues to maximize your money.

  1. Night Food Trip
    Can't deal with the late night cravings? Metro Manila is a great place to be for the foodie on a budget. With Mercato Centrale down south in Bonifacio Global City and Mezza Norte up north in Trinoma, a delicious meal is within your reach no matter where you are. For the health conscious, there's even an organic offering over at Centris Walk, Quezon Avenue at its Food Bowl Night Market every Friday and Saturday where the country's best organic products are showcased.

  2. Pampering
    Every girl deserves to be pampered and few things do the trick like a good manicure. For starters, Bliss Nail and Day Spa offers basic manicure and pedicure at P90 and P100, respectively. Their French manicure is still on our budget as it can be done at P150!

    For more information, visit their Facebook page.
  3. Explore
    Your P150 can literally go a long way. Release the urban explorer in you and see the sites of the city on foot. Travel by jeep, train, trike, pedicab, or by walking and experience Manila in a whole new way. Whether you make your adventure in the comfort of a campus like UP or in the walled city of Intramuros, always remember though to take care and also to grab some isaw along the way!

  4. Catch an Indie Flick
    Summer may be the season for Hollywood blockbusters, but a good indie movie never goes out of style. Over at the Cinema is Incomplete mini-cinematheque, you can catch and support indie movies from the Philippines and all around Southeast Asia. And the best part is admission is free! Visit their website for the schedule of screenings at cinemaisincomplete.tumblr.com
  5. Bargain Shopping
    Test your persuasion skills and see how much your money, and your mouth, can get you in a tiangge challenge. Haggle your way through local bazaars in Greenhills and Tiendesitas and you may just find yourself the perfect purchase. With everything from clothes to handicrafts, accessories and novelty items, there's sure to be something for you if you can talk your way to it.

How would you spend your P150 to have a summer that's fun and productive? Spill and share your ideas with other Candy Girls!
