When there is no means for you to hit the beach, you can forget about the sun, sea and sand and just visit a mall to beat the summer heat. This was exactly what we did as we PLAY at the Ayala Malls.
We got to experience the fun during the launch of #AyalaMallsPlay last April 20th at the Glorietta Activity Center. Ayala Malls is giving PLAYtime a new meaning this May and June as it launches different activities for the kids, tweens and kids-at-heart.
Shopkins Shoppies LIVE!
For kids, Youtube stars Shopkins Shoppies will do a 30-minute Live Musical Show at Glorietta (April 21-23; 2PM, 4PM and 6PM), Market! Market!

Rugby is the latest sport to be re-included into the summer Olympics, and this summer you can be taught by our very own national rugby team, the Philippine Volcanoes.
In cooperation as well with the Phil. Rugby Association, the Globe Volcanoes Junior Rugby Clinics will help your kids bulk up and fuel their competitive spirit. In addition to building confidence and stamina, kids can build camaraderie with fellow young athletes. Sign them up for the clinics held at Glorietta, Solenad and Legazpi (May 7), The 30th (May 14), Alabang Town Center (May 21), Market!

Another means to let off steam is to bust a groove on the dance floor. At Playsound: The BillboardPH Music Trip, Ayala Malls takes you on a musical journey, tracing the evolution of your favorite beats and rhythms from the swinging ’60s, disco era, ’80s pop, ’90s grunge and beyond!

We sure had a fun day and great time playing the games! Tita @sarahtirona was always giggly and laughing! My favorite Tita!
At night, we attended the advanced screening of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 at Greenbelt 3. I always love watching movies at an Ayala Mall because the theater is decent and some cinemas have restrooms inside (which are well-maintained). The best part, you can book your tickets in advance via @ilovesureseats. You guys should also try watching 4DX movies at Greenbelt. Bring a jacket as it gets cold and misty.
Rodel, Duane, Rod and I had a fun memory at Timezone captured in video :D
Summer calls for refreshing and "instagrammable" drinks. We tried Chatime's SUNSET OBSESSION collection which is a new line of all-natural teas made with BUTTERFlY PEA FLOWER. The BUTTERFLY FLOWER TEA is 100% NATURAL. Full of antioxidants with health benefits to memory, circulation and eyesight. I tried the Lemon Sunset Tea, while Earth had Mango Sunset Tea and Duane tried Grapefruit Sunset Tea. Rodel, Jeman and John got their favorite milk tea drinks. Maybe I should request for 10% sugar next time :D
Since Makati supports no-plastic campaign, we didn't get to take a photo of the layered drinks. But at least, the covers are fun and colorful.
It was a fun day at the mall. Thank you Ayala Malls!
Wearing my ex lover's shirt :p
