|Greenhills Tiangge last Christmas season|
I noticed that my blog has been getting a lot of hits for my post last January on Tiendesitas and Greenhills. So when I opened the papers today (okay, okay, so I've been busy), I figured out why:
The Greenhills Summer Bangketa Sale is still on-going, until June 20!
This is definitely good news for those in search of bargains and good buys especially since school season will start soon. Now, I'm sure you're wondering how to get to Greenhills if, say, you live at the outskirts of Pasig, Antipolo or Eastwood-Libis Area. For commuters, the usual way is via that tightly packed bus that passes by San Juan, Greenhills before heading to Quiapo. You could also take an FX or jeepney to Robinson's Ortigas and from there, ride another jeep to San Juan. Or you could take a more leisurely route:

Head to Tiendesitas first around lunch time or after lunch. Enjoy the variety of regional food finds at Tiendesitas Food Village, promenade along the villages of Tiendesitas, then take the 3 p.m.FREE shuttle service in front of Delicacies Village to get to Greenhills. At Greenhills, haggle to your heart's content, enjoy some snacks or coffee at the different restaurants at Connecticut Carpark or at the Promenade (if you still have money to burn), then take the shuttle back to Tiendesitas. The FREE shuttle service is at the Mercury Drug store across Connecticut Carpark. Take note that there are a number of Mercury Drug Stores in Greenhills so remember this exact location.
You could also do the reverse and start shopping at Greenhills before going to Tiendesitas. Tiendesitas has a vibrant nightlife because residents from nearby subdivisions and employees of outsourcing companies in Ortigas flock to Tiendesitas to unwind.
Mall hours at Greenhills Shopping Center is from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Sundays to Thursdays) and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays). The Shuttle Service from Greenhills to Tiendesitas operates from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. On the other hand, shopping hours at Tiendesitas is from 12 noon to 12 midnight. The Shuttle Service from Tiendesitas to Greenhills is from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
By the way, not all vans used for the shuttle service have an identifying sign or an establishment sticker. Don't be afraid to ask the helpful Security Staff if you can't identify what vehicle you need to ride on.
