SM Mall of Asia Opens Today

The grand opening of the 3rd largest mall in the world is today.

SOP Gigsters took place here just a while ago. I was supposed to be there with Ate Danaya Pauline and Gian's family and then we were supposed to go to Robinsons Pioneer to see Gian and Iwa's mall show.. But we were stuck in Subic and didn't make it T T

Anyways, I wish I could go here in Pasay.. It would be easy cause my tito lives near there.. So we could all go and see the 3rd biggest mall in the world.. hehe.. there will be lots of stores here for sure and we could even get lost.. hehe.. We don't need to go to Hong Kong anymore.. us Pinoys.. hehe.. Just take a bus to Bay City, Pasay.. hehe..

We've been here a lot of times anyways but it wasn't open yet.. we always go here with my extended family.. hehe.. meaning my real family, granparents and uncles and cousins.. etc..


The SM Mall of Asia is a shopping mall that opened on May 21, 2006 [1] (originally on August 30, 2005) and is the Philippines' largest mall, toppling its cousin, SM Megamall, and the third biggest mall in the world in terms of gross floor size. It is owned and operated by SM Prime Holdings, under the management of Henry Sy, a Filipino-Chinese business tycoon — regarded as one of the wealthiest men in Asia.

The Mall of Asia was constructed within the reclaimed lands west of Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City, aptly nicknamed "Bay City". It is built on 19.5 hectares of reclaimed land and has a gross floor area of 381,075 square meters. The mall is located at the southmost tip of EDSA (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue). A rotunda was constructed in the front of the mall with a huge bronze globe similar to Universal Studios. An Esplanade or walkway was constructed at the back of the mall where it served as the observation center for the world's first pyrotechnics competition, the World Pyro Olympics in December 2005.
