I don’t get to go to Mega Mall too often.
But here in my own mall, when I’m browsing and window shopping, I like to go to house and home stores. These are the kind of stores I can look to for inspiration in decorating, and even more importantly in the kitchen.
I have always said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and in my house, it just doesn’t sit in the center of our layout…it truly is the room that is most used.
Even when I’m cooking a full meal for my family, I might be meeting with a girlfriend (like Patty) over coffee and snacks. She can prop herself up at the stools under my counter, the kids can come in and out of the kitchen as they please for snacks and drinks, and I can talk to Patty while still accomplishing my chores for the day. (like preparing and cooking dinner) We can share recipes while getting some work done as well.
When I’m killing time, I know that I can browse around stores like Gourdo’s for ideas on new ways of how to serve my family style dishes to the troops, and for cute ways to present my baked goodies for the kids in their lunch boxes.
The folks over at Gourdo’s recently opened up a new location in my favorite part of Mega Mall. The Mega Mall Fashion Hall has been the main reason why I HAVE been making the trek all the way down EDSA from Alabang. It’s the hot spot for all the new openings of flagship stores and mega fashion brands.
Gourdo’s in their new Mega Mall location might seem a bit different than the other branches you might know and be familiar with. It’s a bit bigger than some of the other branches. You can still browse and find what your looking for in all areas of kitchen, specialty foods, cooking, serving, and bedding. This newly opened bigger venue also allows customers to find a more spacious area to shop for crafts, gift items, scrapbooking, and small appliances.
Similar to other branches, this newly opened Fashion Hall location has a private room built to encourage the acquiring of new skills through workshops on cake decorating, baking, knife skills and even scrapbooking.
I can’t wait to make an excuse to visit Gourdo’s SM Megamall for some treats. I think I just may need to find something cute to help us celebrate Easter…
