It isn't hard to find malls in the Philippines; the 3 largest malls in the world are found here. It's a fact: ''consumerism'' has been part of a Filipino's life, even things they don't need but are in sale and discount they'll buy it. The reason why the country hasn't been affected much by recent financial crisis is because of the circulation of money, even if Filipinos are broke they'll find a way to buy something at least in a week for themselves.
