Southies’ own Christmas Gardens unveiled

Pandemic or not, we shall celebrate Christmas, won’t we? And, with the restrictions finally easing up, children being welcomed back into shopping malls and other family-friendly places, we appreciate it all the more how SM Supermalls has been putting so much effort into making everyone feel more excited about Christmas, not only with their pledge to give and to care Christmas countdown but also with how they decorate each SM Supermall with a spectacular theme to match. SM Southmall’s Secret Christmas Garden Let’s begin with every southie in the metro’s second home: SM Southmall. SM Southmall is known for its larger-than-life, picturesque Christmas centerpieces that are perfect backgrounds to our holiday photos. This year, however, SM Southmall unveiled their first-ever experiential Christmas centerpiece!  Abundant trees in varying sizes surround the whole display with a pathway leading to and unveiling the mystery of a secret garden. At the heart of the centerpiece is a 35-feet towering Christmas tree adorned with blooms and thousands of sparkling lights with giant elegant reindeer around it. Be transported to a …

SM Supermalls hits 5 million COVID-19 jabs, opens more vax sites for minors

SM Supermalls has yet again marked a back-to-back milestone in its pursuit to help end COVID-19 in the Philippines: surpassing the five-millionth mark of COVID-19 jabs and the opening of more SM malls as pediatric vaccination sites outside Metro Manila. “Breaching the five-millionth mark is a testament to our commitment to providing our communities with accessible and convenient vaccination sites. We thank our partner LGUs for this partnership are happy to provide our malls as pediatric vaccination centers for minors belonging to the 12-17 age group.” said Steven Tan, president of SM Supermalls. During the opening ceremony of Paranaque City LGU’s “Bida Rin ang Bata” vaccination center at SM City Sucat on November 3, a total of 588 youngsters were given their first dose of vaccines. To date, SM Supermalls has vaccinated over 6,000 pediatric constituents in 15 pediatric mall vaccination sites. Present during the launch were Sec. Carlito Galvez Jr., National Task Force (NTF) against Covid-19 Chief Implementer and Vaccine czar; Assistant Secretary Elmer Punzalan and Assistant Regional Director Aleli Sudiacial, Department of Health; …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 36: The one where it finally sunk in

Seventeen months after the first enhanced community quarantine was implemented and we’re back at it again just last August 6th. I just realized it’s also been nine months since I had last written something under this category. Anyways, so here I am again. This is becoming a habit now, really, i.e., me writing then not writing then back to writing again… reading And the Mountains Echoed by one of my favorite male novelists Khaled Hosseini. If you must know, I’ve been delaying buying this book because I’ve been looking for one that’s as the same size as his two other books that I got –– The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. However, since he has another novel coming out soon, I decided to just get a copy even if it’s much smaller than the other two I’ve got. Now I’m really trying to read it slowly unlike his other two novels. Care to guess why? writing lists of things to do and more. I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed blogging until now. When …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 34: The one with my 1st wedding anniversary during quarantine and Hashy got sick

Yesterday’s my 17th (civil) wedding anniversary. I didn’t forget this time ––never again since my 15th wedding anniversary, actually –– and my dutiful husband didn’t fail to greet me, either. The morning went smoothly and I was even able to prepare spaghetti bolognese for lunch. This is the first time we’re celebrating our wedding anniversary under lockdown or enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). It doesn’t really feel much different though, since we’re used to celebrating just by ourselves at home. However, by midday, we got an emergency. Our Siberian husky Hashy started howling and seemed to be in pain as she struggled to get up but unable to do so. What was supposed to be a fun and relaxing day turned into a tense and busy day, as we tried to take care of Hashy and worked double time cleaning the yard and dog kennels. This morning, we took Hashy to the vet, and she is now currently confined at the animal clinic. It appears that she has anemia and in need of blood transfusion. Right …
