Kung may isang feeling na talagang pinakaayawan at pinaka-iniiwasan ko, it’s panicking. Kapag may susulpot na schedule o biglaang deadline, hate na hate ko talaga! Kaya as much as possible, ginagalingan ko ang time management para hindi ako ginagahol sa oras.
Pero there is one kind of panic that every girl (or boy) would definitely enjoy. Imagine yourself in a “Panic Room” full of branded clothes, tops, skirts, shorts, dresses, jackets, lahat! Tapos you have the freedom to choose and take home any and all the clothes you want that can fit in your bag within 15 minutes. Ang saya nun diba? Every shopaholic’s heaven! That’s the kind of panic offered by CLOTHES BUFFET MANILA.
Clothes Buffet Manila is the brainchild of five fabulous friends who all have the “passion for fashion”. They adapted this one-of-a-kind concept from a similar event in Malaysia. The only difference is that they’re doing this in Manila with BRANDED CLOTHES. Think Terranova, Forever 21, Promod, etc., with their fashionable pieces (approximately 30,000) side by side in every rack, and you’re right in the middle of it all!
So here’s how it works.
They give you 1 ziplock bag (size is 33 x 23 cms.)…
To scour all 71 racks and 30,000 pieces of clothing!!!
PICK IT, ZIP IT, KEEP IT!
Sold ka na sa idea noh? This will happen at Il Terrazo, 305 Tomas Morato, Quezon City on OCTOBER 17 (2pm to 10pm) and OCTOBER 18 (10am – 6pm). Yup, 2 days lang kaya limited slots! Clothes Buffet Manila is selling 15-minute Time Waves on those dates online via their website www.clothesbuffetmanila.com.
Alam ko iniisip niyo, baka masyadong crowded at magkagulo? Don’t worry, only 60 people are allowed to participate in every time wave kaya hindi ‘yan problema. Plus, only bag holders are allowed inside the buffet area. Bawal ang sidekick. Each slot is sold at P1,999. Sobrang sulit nito lalo na kung mahusay kang pumili at mag-tiklop. Hehe.
The clothes are grouped into 3 Collections: Smart Chic, Girls’ Night Out and Festival Madness. You can choose from any and all collections, depende sa mood and personality mo.
Last July 22, Clothes Buffet Manila held a preview of the event. Pagdating ko sa venue, medyo na-intimidate ako. Puro “fashyon” ang mga tao. Lahat fabulous! Habang ako, naka-maong lang. Napaisip tuloy ako, ” baka nagkamali sila ng invite!” But the people from Clothes Buffet Manila were very accommodating and made us all feel welcome, fashion blogger ka man o hindi. There, they gave us a glimpse of what it will be like in October. At isa lang ang masasabi ko…ANG SAYA SAYA!!!
Ang dilemma mo lang inside the buffet area is QUALITY or QUANTITY??? But you have to decide quickly. 15 minutes lang e. I saw some go for quality. May isa akong nakita na pumili ng denim jacket. Sa loob-loob ko, “‘Yun pa lang, puno na ang bag!” But then again, choice niya ‘yun. Ako, I opted for quantity. Lalo na since I was shopping for three (sina S at D pa). Sa panic ko, parang 5 minutes lang ako pumili ng damit. The rest of the time I spent sa strategic na pagtiklop at pagpasok sa bag. By the way, you have to successfully zip the bag ha. Bawal ang overflowing! Napaka-intense, napasalampak ako sa sahig! Award!
Look at my bag! Sa sobrang siksik niya, medyo nagulat din ang Clothes Buffet Manila people. Parang 5 kilo daw ang bigat! I got to take home 10 pieces of clothing, including tops and dresses! Kung sa tingin niyo kaya niyong i-top ‘yan, aba, go and visit www.clothesbuffetmanila.com and register na! Isama pa ang buong barkada! Balitaan niyo ako kung naka-ilan kayo ha!
Clothes Buffet Manila is not only selling clothes; it’s selling an incredibly unique and fun shopping experience! 🙂

hi. do you have any idea what are the brands of the clothes? thanks
Most of the clothes are overruns pero good quality naman. May Forever 21, Promod, Terranova. ‘Yun yung mga brands na nahakot ko. Hindi ko na na-isa-isa yung mga tatak nung iba e. Hehe. 🙂
Liz C. says
Those are good brands! Good job P!
Kasama na sa 15 min timeframe yung paglalagay ng clothes sa bag??
Yup, kasama na. Altho dadaan pa sa validation area. Dun ichecheck kung may sira yung clothes or yung bag at kung ilang pieces ang talagang kasya. Masaya siya promise. Kakaibang experience. Hehe. 🙂
Liz C. says
P, ang galing mo naman! 10 pcs in that ziplock? Pahingi naman ng tips on packing! 🙂
Puro pang petite lang ba yung clothes?:)
Tanong,; naka sort by size? Baka ma stress ako sa panic hahaha. Ang dami mong naharvat in fernes!
Initially daw naka-sort ang sizes. Pero siyempre, di maiiwasan na magulo throughout the time waves. Kaya best pa rin daw mag-register nang maaga. 😉
