Shopping: National the past-time?

I don't jest- but- in light of the habits seen by scientific research cited in a recent Manila times artcle. The most popular way to pass the time it seems in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Metro Davao seem to be SHOPPING.

[ ] … AC Nielsen, the international consumer research firm, said 22 percent of Filipino consumers engage in "retail therapy." It said 38 percent of Filipinos polled consider buying clothes a necessary chore, ..[]

If one were to consider that the total mall retail space in Metro Manila alone rivals that of Los Angeles and San Francisco combined.

Or so said some report I read a couple of years back- if you count the Malls from Sta. Rosa to Bulacan then one begins to see that even though there is a lack Nationwide of over 4,000 classrooms and problems with not enough desks or books or other things perhaps then at least there enough after school space for everyone!

It might be an idea- to hold classes also in Malls- saves on the after class expenses of having the people go there. Imagine if say in Glorieta or the Galleria or the malls of the southern section of manila – boy- the attendance ratings would be high. Noting today wandering about how many school uniforms one sees in the malls it seems the passion for shopping starts early.

One day I'll do a photo study with my handy little camera and see just how many schools I can spot on a mall excursion… it might make an interesting study indeed.
