Thing about being in a mall in Manila is that it's such a huge investment in time and effort to get there in your car -- including parking it -- that you get into a mindset of having to make the most of your stay.

This includes trying to do everything that you could conceivably do while there which, it seems, makes one more vulnerable to the powers of suggestion of all the 'buy me' messages that scream at you in bright colours and catchy jingles from every corner of the building.
