It’s all rooted in love

MANILA, Philippines - It could have been just a normal trip to the mall. You, navigating your way through the crowd with one thing in mind: Get the items you need and get it done as fast as you could, because you have better things to do than spend more time in a mall. But then, the door guard greets you with the warmest smile, even calls you by name — which happens a lot in Alabang Town Center — and as you continue your stride along the halls, the sound of a live band (say, the Manila Symphony Orchestra, which is currently a regular in Glorietta) playing from the main atrium catches your attention.

What a sweet surprise. You don’t even realize that you’ve totally stopped to watch. At this point, you’ve spent more time inside the mall than you have intended. After the free mini-concert, you remember your primary purpose. On the way to the store, you pass by a row of al fresco restaurants (like those in Greenbelt) — the smell of something baked hypnotizes you.  All of a sudden, you’re facing today’s featured dish and there’s nothing you can do but succumb to its mouthwatering goodness.

Going home with the provisions you bought, you tell yourself, “Today’s a lucky day.” Thing is, that kind of rewarding experience is not an unusual occurrence at an Ayala mall — it’s the norm. Ayala Malls, the country’s premier chain of shopping centers, has been transforming every mall visit into an all-inclusive recreational experience. Ayala Malls doesn’t sell food, it tries to satisfy even the cravings you don’t know exist; Ayala Malls doesn’t just sell clothes, it dictates trends; Ayala Malls doesn’t just host an event, it strives hard to entertain you and leave a mark on your memory.

Through the years, it has become more and more clear why Ayala Malls continues to go out of its way to give its patrons the extra that they deserve. It’s really simple: Everything is rooted deep in love. Be it love for fashion, food, family and for all things that matter to you — Ayala Malls is a place where all kinds of love is given and reciprocated.
