The excitement is building up around getting things back to normal. And what would a normal day be for Filipinos without going to the mall?
The celebrations extend into the New Year as several malls in Metro Manila are ready to receive visitors, and are raring to create new memories for what was a year to remember.

Some malls are making it even more exciting by coming with fun, day-to-night wholesome, safe experiences for young and old, barkadas, couples, shopaholics, furparents, and everyone in between.

With a few minor tweaks here and there, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls are bringing back favorite activities with a view toward safety to bring a better—and happier—new normal.

Spoil yourself silly by shopping at Uptown Bonifacio, and go cashless at newly opened stores like ANTA, Sole Republiq, and Pierre Cardin, or dine at the newly opened Wildflour Café, the biggest yet of the popular restaurant. Whisk away your closest friends to Twin Lakes in Tagaytay for your yearly exchange-gifts tradition, and dine al fresco out in the fresh, open air as
you toast to a happier year ahead.

Get some exercise with your beloved furbaby at the many parks and walkways of Eastwood Mall. Sneak in some shopping while strolling at Royal Sporting House and Xiaomi, or chill and treat yourself at Conti’s Take Out Nook, Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory, and Yayoi. Stroll around Eastwood Citywalk and enjoy something savory from popups and Food Trucks like Frankie’s, Yalla Yalla, and MOS Burger.
Stimulate your senses with the sensory overload that is a Lucky Chinatown Christmas in the heart of the world’s oldest Chinatown. Get ready to meet the new year with a new look with specs from Owndays, or book an appointment at Ystilo Salon at Lucky Chinatown.

Take your significant other on a romantic holi-date at Newport Mall, and enjoy the privacy afforded by generously spaced tables. Travel without even leaving the city by strolling through the picturesque scenery of McKinley Hill’s Venice Grand Canal, known as the most romantic
mall in the Philippines. Better yet, be one of the first to try the country’s first “float-in” cinema where you can watch a romantic movie on the big screen while on one of the Venetian gondolas floating on the Grand Canal.

More surprises still await! Stay safe and plan your visit to Megaword Lifestyle Malls by visiting Megaworld Lifestyle Malls on Facebook, @megaworldlifestylemalls on Instagram, or the website at
