    ^No, just the meatballs.

    I haven't had a Jollibee burger steak in ages so I can't comment on your friend's comparison. I saw some ordered rice with their meatballs so those who just can't part with rice need not to worry. I found their mushroom soup filling considering it's just P45.

    I'll be trying that mushroom soup, as campbell's is one of my comfort food. What I'm curious about is the Coffee (P35) and Cinnamon Bun (P35) as well. Can't wait for sunday. :coffee:

    Mm….applied for membership and stored digitsl ID on my iPhone’s Wallet. Can’t believe that the last time I visited and shopped at an Ikea was in 1989 in Los Angeles. 32 long years has passed before Ikea landed in the PH.

    Will visit Ikea PH once I get the booster shot. In the meantime. I ll order items via their online facility.

    actually they do have good and bad items,
    if you want quality ikea product, dont expect it cheaper than outside,
    all cheap priced big items are just like taobao items to attract,

    still the golden rule, you got what you paid for,

    I regret going with a friend on opening day awhile ago, when he invited me. Was able to purchase some of my items, but man people were everywhere, and the lines were horrendous. It was one super spreader event and I hope that people will be safe from covid19 coming home from that circus. Wasn't able to get cooked meatballs and other food as the lines were too long, so I just settled for the packed meatballs along with some packed cookies and drinks.

    Won't be seeing my loved ones for at least 4 days just to watch myself. o_O

    I thought they only allowed pre-booked people in? Their booking scheduling allows that many at one time?

    Blackout curtains, washable, are in Robinson Ortigas, where I get mine for the last 10 years or so; Good variety of design too, plain or printed.

    Well, even at only 50% capacity, 4,000 people is still a lot, especially if there's hot spots (i.e. people lining up for the food). Kind of reminds me of the lines at my local S&R before the pandemic. I definitely do not miss those times.

    Nothing against the city, but I'm not feeling the official name of the first store being "IKEA Pasay City". So will it mean that there will be an IKEA BGC or IKEA Bulacan? In other countries, it's just an "IKEA" with a different address.

    Where did you guys park?

    Good luck to us on the 29th! (My birthday :D)

    @Dekra The building itself (MOA Square) has parking. That one has direct access to Ikea's exit so that's the best option if you bought heavy items. Other options of course would be MAAX and SM MOA itself (where the department stores are) which has direct access to IKEA's entrance.

    PS. Happy birthday to us on the 29th!
