A Day at the Newport Mall

Saturday, July 01, 2017

Sharing happenings during my hangout at the re-opened Newport Mall in Pasay last week!

Meet up with friends / Lunch in Ichiba

Just last month, Newport Mall reopens to the public and its loyal patrons. I finally had the chance to go back here with my blog friends last Thursday, and enjoy the usual dine-and-shop in one of my family's favorite one-stop mall (it's super near NAIA3!).

My parents and titas usually go here for the casino and the buffet. Meanwhile, I've been in RW one too many times for the shows--from concerts (Airsupply!!!) to world-class theater productions (Sound of Music!).

So I met up with the group in Ichiba, a Japanese restaurant that reminds me so so much of Dotonbori in Osaka--aka Japan's "Kitchen". The whole place looks like the typical, legit food and market place in Japan, and they serve a variety of Japanese cuisines like ramen, sushi, yakitori, tempura, gyoza, etc. Sobrang heaven!

I'll go back to try the other vegetarian food in Ichiba's menu! They have vegetarian tempura and my favorite tamago!

I first learned about this resto through Sarah during our Japan In Manila days, and finally got to visit and try it myself! I love it! I will always feel "at home" in anything Japanese or Korean, hehe!

Fun and chill lunch with these cool bloggers. ❤

I also watched a tempura and sushi cooking demo. I saw that everything's freshly made here in Ichiba:

Good job, Papi!

Other dining options at the Newport Mall include Recipes, Naah!m, Red Crab, Mr. Kurosawa, Annam, Italianni's, and many more. Some of them will have special offers and discounts till July 31, so it's the best time to go here!

Shopping Spree!

Why I prefer shopping at the Newport Mall: 1) Better stocks even on mid range brands like Bench and Mango, 2) Better service, 3) Less crowded than most malls in Manila!

They are also currently offering up to 70% off in most of the stores! Some of the brands available at the Newport Mall include Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria's Secret, Guess, Puma, Charles & Keith, Hush Puppies, Coalition, and Michael Antonio.

For trendy shoes, bags, and accessories, I went to Call It Spring:

I can't resist the logo shirts from Guess and Adidas, I realized that I have so much logo tees, it's turning into a collection na! Hehe.

Finally saw the 90s-cool Guess pieces that I've been looking for for a long time! They're all available at the Guess Newport Mall branch!

Comparing (shopping) notes with Ruthilish! Hehe!

Korea In Manila finds at the Newport Mall: Suzy Bae for The Face Shop and Park Shin Hye for Bench! 😍

All kinds of White Musk scents at The Body Shop, aka Goblin's perfume hehe:

Spotted: Affordable pink hoodie like the ones worn by your favorite Kdrama girls, available in Bench Newport Mall for only Php 699!

I saw Rhea buying a laptop case from Beyond The Box:

These are so kyeopta!!! Yellow and Millennial Pink sneakers with huge bows from Puma:

Where I wasted my time ~ Mango! They have pieces for as low as Php 400+!

Can't resist these comfy pieces at 50% off!

Coffee Break in Cafe Creole

After a tiring shopping for more than 1.5 hours, the gang headed to Cafe Creole, also located at the Newport Mall's The Plaza. I had a nice iced latte with sweet pastries, while my friends and I showcased our purchases to each other... My favorite part! Hehe! 😌😋

More Than Shopping And Dining!

But of course, a day is not enough at the Newport Mall! Aside from trying new cuisines and shopping to your heart's content, they also have top of the line cinemas currently offering special rates. Every 1pm to 4pm, children 12 years old and below can enjoy movies for the low price of Php 150! Meanwhile, adults may enjoy their favorite blockbuster for only Php 170! 

Want to pamper yourself? Island Spa is giving away 20% off in all their services, while Skin Perfection offers diamond peel treatments for only Php 499.

Heading Home 

Took lots of photos at the plaza before the group parted ways. If you're staying here till evening, Newport Mall holds musical events and live performances here at The Plaza from 7pm onwards.

Shoppers get to enjoy free parking by just presenting a minimum of Php 500 single or accumulated receipts. Otherwise, flat rate parking is just Php 50.

 Waiting for my Grab, hehehe:

Meanwhile, for fellow commuters! Coming to and from Newport Mall, get Php 50 off on your GrabCar fare by using the promo code "newportmall". Or you can just ask their very friendly guards to help you get a cab, they assisted me the whole time since it was already rush hour!

I really had fun that day! Thank you Newport Mall for hosting this fun bonding afternoon with blog friends I seldom see! Will definitely be back with my family naman. 😌
