Have you seen a garden on air? Have you heard of spring in the Philippines? LOL.
We dropped by Eastwood Mall in Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City before dusk today, after watching a movie at Eastwood City Cinemas. We usually go to Eastwood to dine, or simply to stroll and while away time, or to sip a venti of coffee. Apparently, the mall display still depicts the blooms of May and on time to bid goodbye to summer.
I, my wife Tina and our son Gabby as young as he is, are mall-rats! Gabby enjoys Timezone arcade or any kids’ fun places whenever we go out. We frequent Gateway Mall in Araneta Center, Cubao, Shangri la mall in Mandaluyong City, and Ayala Malls in Makati and Quezon Cities, sometimes in Greenhills, San Juan. But I am bias to Ayala Malls (Greenbelt, Glorietta, TriNoma, Bonifacio High Street, not so with Alabang Town Center because we’re far from it), because they value lush greens in between malls’ urban setting. I also appreciate architecture and interiors of Powerplant Mall in Rockwell Center, Makati and this new Eastwood Mall in Quezon City because they’re also competitive and at par with the malls abroad.
What makes Eastwood Mall unique than other shopping centers is the presence of mall butlers clad in their black suits and leather shoes who offer to carry the customers’ shopping bags to provide convenience and comfort. I’m not sure if their services are free but I’m definite that one is shameless without giving them a tip. LOL. Eastwood Mall’s proximity to high-end condo units and business establishments, mostly BPO/call center agencies is another edge.
Who would have thought that many Pinoys are living at the marginalized corner of a third-world country when malls are always packed with people? LOL.
Do you like going to the malls ? What’s your best mall experience? Or would you rather stay at home ? As for my family, they don’t mind having PDA public display of affection in malls! But my wife felt awkward wearing scrubs in malls as we usually meet her right after her O.R. duty; for according to her, she look less of a mother to Gabby, hence the hugs & kisses…hihihi…
