SM and Robinsons Dominate


I mentioned in my previous post that I have constantly been to malls here in the Philippines… charge it to lack of safe and clean parks and playgrounds.

But hey, wherever I go I only get to enter SM and Robinson malls. Is there anything else? Okay, here are the non-SM and non-Robinson malls I’d been to since I arrived here in the Philippines: there’s Marquee in Pampanga, Serendra in The Fort, Greenbelt and Glorietta in Makati and… and… and… I give up.

SM and Robinson malls dominate!

In Iloilo, the only mall I went to was SM City Iloilo. In Manila, I am only familiar and comfortable in Robinson’s Galleria but I also made the rounds of SM Megamall and once in Mall of Asia. In Cabanatuan, there’s a small Robinson’s mall. Clark, Pampanga still brought us to SM. And yesterday, we drove to San Fernando, Pampanga and you got right! There was nowhere else to go but SM and Robinsons.

  1. This is true. In Cebu though, they have Ayala Center, just like SM, but they have like this mini amusement park with wild river. Now, they have Trinoma and Gateway in QC area. Glorietta 1-4 is nice, lot’s of things to see. Although, I still prefer the way SM malls are set up.

  2. one indicator used to determine if a place is urbanized is the presence of malls particularly SM Malls since they are the only one scattered all over the country. I was a mall rat when I was in college and a friend of mine would literally count which malls we’ve been into. 🙂
