    A new shopping haven in Divisoria like no other on its surrounding has just opened last October in time for the Yuletide Season. Who would think an elegant shopping mall for wholesale and retail is possible to rise in Divisoria? For decades, this market district at the heart of the city is known not only for its wide assortment of low-priced goods and wholesale and bargain shopping but also for a lot of inconveniences it brings to shoppers like overcrowded malls, congested walkways, and unsafe environment. Now lots of new and modern shopping malls are sprouting like mushrooms one after another. There's the Phase 5 of 168 Shopping Mall, the 11/68 Shopping Mall among others. But one really stands out. The 999 Shopping Mall. I based my opinion on three facts. Excellent location that gives ease of travel to and from the mall itself, spacious wide walkways that constitute to more comfortable shopping, and of course low-priced goods. Well, good air-conditioning system and other facilities as well as security are already given. Basement parking is free as of this writing. Truly, 999 Shopping Mall is the ultimate destination for Christmas Shoppers this holiday season. The mall opens 7:30 am and closes 7:30 pm daily. Here are some of the photos of 999 Shopping Mall I've taken last November 14, 2010.

    Traffic in the Area


    For route #1, traffic along Jose Abad Santos is moderate. Bottelneck builds upon approaching the intersection of Jose Abad Santos and Recto Avenue, but still manageable. This is the less congested road among the five routes given here. However, because of holiday season, always expect the worse in terms of traffic. It is advisable to plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning especially now that 999 Shopping Mall opens at 7:30 am.

    For route #2, this is the most simple route but the most congested, too. Because of the Christmas Season, bottleneck builds up already right after crossing Tomas Mapua, and it's still a long way to go before you reach Masangkay Street. Remember, Recto Avenue is the major road for passenger jeepneys coming to Divisoria from Marikina, Cubao, Sta Mesa, Pasig and even Quiapo. So if you can get around the area, you might want to take route #3 by turning right onto Oroquieta Street. Oroquieta Street is the street before Avenida and it is where Philippine Rabbit buses from province pass through to get to their terminal. On Oroquieta Street, just go straight ahead then turn left on Fugoso Street and follow route #3 direction. Warning: there's no left turn on Tomas Mapua Street from Recto Avenue. Avoid the inconvenience brought by MMDA Traffic Enforcer's apprehension. Drive smart.

    For route #3, you might be discourage on turning right to Soler but don't worry. The bottleneck you might encounter is momentarily. The traffic is caused by vehicles turning right onto the next street of San Bernardo. After San Bernardo Street, traffic is manageable up to Reina Regente. Nevertheless, because of the holiday season, there are some delay in traffic movement but MMDA Traffic Enforcers are there to manage the traffic so don't be agitated when you stop from time to time. I saw how they manage the traffic and it was excellent. After 10 minute wait, you will be driving along Soler without stopping up to Reina Regente. To avoid traffic, all along, plan your Christmas Shopping ahead of time and schedule it early in the morning. 999 Shopping Mall opens 7:30 am and closes 7:30 pm daily.

    For route #4, bottleneck builds up heavily on Reina Regente upon approaching Felipe Street. Because of holiday season. please expect worse traffic situation even before you reach Reina Regente. To make sure you arrive without encountering so much traffic, plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning. 999 Shopping Mall opens 7:30 am.

    For route #5, Evangelista Street is teeming with lots of people and sidewalk vendors, and many car drivers park their vehicles along Evangelista to buy some items. So, expect slow movement. Traffic along Soler Street is in Traffic For route #3. To avoid traffic, always plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning. 999 Shopping Mall opens 7:30 am.
