Here are 10 tips and tricks on how to survive clothes buffet manila from the Founders in no particular order!
#1 Keep Calm and Shop On
Follow common courtesy and avoid running to keep the atmosphere sane. Have fun. It’s not supposed to be stressful. It’s a party. 
#2 Finders Keepers

Clothes aren’t the only things up for grabs in the Buffet Floor! Find them and bring it to the validation area (and yes, no need to put it in the buffet bag).

#3 Get The Clothes Rolling

The best way to fill in as many pieces as possible is to put the clothes into a sausage roll. The key is to make the roll the thinnest it can possibly can!

#10 Birth Date Blowout

It’s our birth date today. In celebration of the first CBM, we’re giving out an irresistible bargain. At some time during the two-day event, we’re opening the buffet floor to everyone and there would be one price for tops, dresses and bottoms! Stay tuned for our announcement! 🙂


Time for Round 2!

Round 1 not enough? All buffet goers get a discount! If you want another round, you get to pay for 1,999 instead of the walk-in price of P2,499! 

And last but not the least, the best advice is to just follow our mantra –Pick it. Zip it. Keep it!
Pick out all the clothes you want first (yes, even if it exceeds the number of the pieces you think can fit into the bag.) Then allot your last 3 minutes to pick out what you really like, then just ZIP it all in. The key is to roll and push it in the buffet bag. Then getting to keep all the clothes will be a breeze as you go through the validation area!

P.S.  Travel light. The organizers recommend wearing light, fitted clothing and shoes that are comfortable. CBM will restrict people from bringing their bags to the buffet floor, so make sure you are wearing something with pockets to store your valuables.

  1. Hi,
    Question regarding tips #2 so we can grab anything that are not clothes and just bring it to the validation area ? like shoes, accessories or is it secret ?

  2. I’m disgusted by CBM itself. Joined this event last year for their season 1. With the 2000 pesos that i paid them all that was hung on the buffet floor was SANDOS. Many girls were in awe disappointment and i was not alone in this agony. Their promise that in every wave they replenish the clothes on the buffet floor. But sorry this was far from what they did. They only fill up clothes every other wave so if unluckily you booked a wave that they do not plan to fill up you will only get SANDOS. Many girls even called it SANDO buffet. Sa sobrang dami ng nagalit sa kanila months and months so many girls who joined the event was posting HATE reviews on their FB page but what they did is took out those 1 star hate reviews and blocked the girls who gave them that to post, share or comment on their page. Sa sobrang naging misleading ung event na ito alam niyo ba na many girls filed a complaint against them sa DTI? Umiyak iyak pa nga ung may ari dahil sa marami talaga ang nag reklamo.
    I’m saddened that they will have a season 2. Dahil marami nanaman silang malolokong babae.
    Maswerte ka lang kapag ang wave na napili mo ay may kasamang artista, Blogger katulad ng event na ito posted above or ung wave na un ay ifefeature ng isang TV channel. Of course they do not want bad publicity kaya magaganda talaga ung mga damit na ilalabas nila sa wave na iyon. Pero kung nataon ka or napili mong wave is ung ” normal ” in sense na wala masyadong stars or special participation. I promise you will be disappointed.
    Hope this will serve as a warning to them.
