CAVITE – It was quite a long time since I thought of writing these down, and finally, came to a NEED to publish this since I was surprised that some Caviteños didn’t even know or had been to the usual malls we love going to in Cavite. Ever since we transferred in the South, it became our habit to explore the area, actually there are malls everywhere in Cavite, a balance of urban and rural life which we loved. But here were just a few that became some of our favorite places to go.
