Last Sunday, December 19, 2010, my husband and I went to Marquee Mall in Pampanga upon the invitation of Ms. Cel Mabalot of ELRO. Marquee Mall is an Ayala Mall situated within Angeles City’s business district. It opened in September 2009. This mall has an upscale feel without the upscale prices. I also appreciate the fact that it’s not too crowded.
It took us two hours to get to Marquee Mall from Manila, and we arrived there just in time for lunch. We had a sumptuous meal at Gerry’s Grill, and you bet from what we ordered that we needed to visit www.lipofuzefatburner.com afterwards.
Our first stop was Bambu store. I’m telling you this place is so alive, so inviting! The colorful displays are enough to entice you to check out what this store has to offer. We saw their latest collection of Grendha, Ipanema and Rider footwear. And you know what? We got to shop for not just one, but two pairs, of our choice, too. It didn’t take me long to choose my loot: a brown pair of Grendha slip-ons and a gray-and-black pair of Ipanema sandals.
Then, it was time to watch “A Christmas Ballet Concert.” This show was presented by Ayala Malls and Steps Dance Project in cooperation with Ipanema and Grendha. This ballet concert featured “Pinoy Christmas” and excerpts from the classic Christmas tale The Nutcracker. I already saw this at the Glorietta Activity Center last November 20, but I watched it again and enjoyed it again. Hubby took new photos, too.
