Now the Husband and I have moved to different places since (for some reason or another); and now we find ourselves in a new place where the in-house grocery store, sadly, does not carry any Filipino food products. ¡Qué horror!
Good thing, though, we stumbled upon this little gem conveniently located at Tampines Central 1, just a bus ride away from our place.

Now what type of items can you get from Katipunans Filipino Mini-mart? Well here you have the usual condiments and cooking seasonings (like Lorins patis (fish sauce) and Datu Puti vinegar), snacks (like Chippy and Nova), beauty products, and food stuff, too (includes Lucky Me pancit canton (type of dry noodles) and the like).
I've long gotten used to the fact that items that are sold at relatively cheap prices in Manila, can costs 3 or 4x more here in Singapore. Take for instance, Purefoods corned beef is S$4.20 (Php138.60*), 555 spanish sardines at S$1.80 (Php59.40*) a can, and Tortillos BBQ chips for S$1.75 (Php57.75*) a large bag.
Regardless of the price, it's still a taste of home.
*S$1 = Php33
