HELP!!!! Can somebody please tell me what is the name of this building? I saw this as I was walking around Makati. I’m not sure if this is along Valero St. I would be very glad to get a response because this tower is just plain beautiful. It’s lean but has nice details. The absence of high-rise neighbors makes it even more stunning.


Eastwood Mall

The Eastwood Mall is part of the 42-acre commercial and residential development by Megaworld Corporation in Libis, Quezon City.

This is why I don’t like pictures with gloomy and cloudy skies over it. It doesn’t have that “alive” feel.

This is a birthday treat to a blogger who celebrated her birthday yesterday. I would’ve included this on the Mall of Asia post but this is so beautiful that it deserved a feature of its own. So here it is, Ate Chyng’s office. 🙂

This is OneE-comCenter (also known as SM Corporate Center), an office building located just beside the SM Mall of Asia. This 10-storey building was designed by Arquitectonica and Arch. Felix Lim.

SM Mall of Asia

One time, as I was about to enter the Mall of Asia, I overheard two ladies with a strong Bisaya accent talking about the place.

“Alam mu bang sa elalem nito ay dagat? Kaya mag-engat tayu, baka lomobog begla.”


And some people even say that because the land where the Mall of Asia is built is only reclaimed, the sea will soon engulf it and boom! End of the world.

These people must be really kidding me. Though it could be true (take for example the case of Japan’s Kansai Airport), it won’t happen in a blink of an eye. Hello! Why would SM build a mall somewhere that could do a 2012 all of a sudden?

So here it is, I bring you the SM Mall of Asia Bay City, home of the Philippines’ largest conglomerate and as they say, home of the “good guys”.

Seeing SM’s logo makes me think that this is a department store and not a hip mall. Sorry. You guys need a rebranding. Hire me! LOL

So there, I hope you enjoyed looking at it. 🙂
