SM Mall of Asia....


Last year 2006, when my husband knew that there will be an IMAX Theater here in the Philippines at SM Mall of Asia, we already planned and put on our schedule to go on that mall and watch on IMAX.

SM Mall of Asia is the largest shopping mall in the Philippines and the 7th largest shopping mall in the world in terms of gross floor size. It was constructed within the reclamation area, west of Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City, aptly nicknamed "Bay City". It is built on 19.5 hectares of reclaimed land. A roundabout was constructed in the front of the mall with a huge bronze globe similar to Universal Studios.

The SM Mall of Asia mall grounds consists of four buildings interconnected by walkways; the Main Mall, the Entertainment Mall, and the North and South Carpark Buildings.
The Main Mall includes shopping and dining establishments and the food court. The Entertainment Mall is a two-story complex, a majority of which is open-air, facing Manila Bay.
The mall's 5,000 parking spaces are divided across two, six-story parking buildings conveniently designated the North and South parking buildings. The South Parking building houses the mall's official SM Department Store, while the mall's supermarket, the SM Hypermarket is located within the North Parking building.

One of the mall's somewhat-unique features is a 20-seater tram traveling around the mall grounds to ferry shoppers around.

One of the mall’s main attractions is the first ever IMAX theater in the country. And the mall features the Philippine's first Olympic-size dice skating rink. At 61 by 30 meters, the rink is described as the biggest of its kind in Southeast Asia. It can accommodate both recreational and competitive figure skating, as well as ice hockey. Along with plain access and skate rentals, the rink's operators also offer training progams in both figure skating and ice hockey. Several ice skating competitions have been held at the mall's ice skating rink.

We ate steak on our lunch at Tagaytay Highlands before watching "The Ant Bully" in IMAX Theater. But the price of steak on that restaurant is very expensive than steak in Japan. Me and my husband only but we already billed more than P3,000. Then after watching movie, we ate ice cream in cone while watching some kids on practicing on ice skating rink. And of course, we took a lot of sweet photo on that mall, even with the view of Manila Bay as our background.

MOA is the largest mall here in the Philippines. I've been there before with my family but I rather choose to walk around because I want to see every corner of this mall and for me this place is not only for shopping but also for pleasure.

I found these great shopping malls in Philippines
