Ayala Malls brings the spirit of Christmas

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - More than the decorative emblems, bright lighting and shopping deals, Ayala Malls shares the love by reminding shoppers of the beloved family traditions and important things that make Christmas magical and meaningful.

From far north in Fairview Terraces down to the Queen City of the south at Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls brings Yuletide cheer by presenting “The Sound of Christmas,” a concert series featuring top singers together with the Manila Symphony Orchestra,

With the charm of Piolo Pascual and The Voice of the Philippines’ Daryl Ong, TriNoma presented holiday melodies last Nov 5. The streets of Makati were transformed into Christmas-themed venues with a musical spectacle from Sam Milby and rock princess Yeng Constantino at Glorietta yesterday and with Erik Santos and Nikki Gil at Greenbelt on Nov. 11. This month-long act continues with featured artists from Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Richard Poon, Angeline Quinto, Jay R and Marion Aunor at Fairview Terraces on Nov. 14, Ayala Center Cebu on Nov. 22, Market! Market! on Dec. 6 and Alabang Town Center on Dec. 13.

Ayala Malls partners again with Steps Dance Project to bring back “Frankly Speaking” in the provinces-Harbor Point, Subic Bay Freeport Zone (Nov. 13), MarQuee Mall Angeles, Pampanga (Nov. 14), Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro (Nov. 20), and Abreeza Mall, Davao (Nov. 22). Frankly Speaking is a jazz musical inspired by the famous hits of the legendary music icon, the late Frank Sinatra. This musical concert will also feature the talented dancer, musician and entertainer Omar Edwards from New York.

For Ayala Malls special gift for the kids, the spotlight is on British animated character Peppa Pig, as she celebrates her first Christmas in Ayala Malls, together with her family—little brother George and Mummy and Daddy Pig, who will be giving a Christmas presentation with sing-a-long, dancing, and snorts of laughter for the most wonderful time of the year. Perfect for loving parents with children who are avid fans of this bubbly cartoon show, this will take place at Glorietta (Nov. 13-15), TriNoma (Nov. 21-22), Ayala Center Cebu (Nov. 27-29), Alabang Town Center (Dec. 4-6), Market! Market! (Dec. 11-13), and Ayala Malls Solenad (Dec. 18-20).

Glorietta remains passionate in the arts with its Calligraphy Fair that will be an afternoon pen meet highlighting top artists in the country on Nov. 7 and the Artwork T-shirt Printing for customized shirts for the holidays on Dec. 12. As Christmas is the season to give back, a CSR effort from the mall entitled “100 Christmas Wishes” will also be held to encourage shoppers in sponsoring wishes of 100 less fortunate children from November to December.

While Greenbelt will kick off its Christmas season with a lighting and toasting ceremony on Nov. 11, Alabang Town Center features back-to-back toy fairs and sale events before its weekly Community Christmas Cantata on the whole month of December with special participation from Lyceum Orchestra, Lighthouse Bible Church, San Beda College, SAT Music, Christ Commission Fellowship, and many more.

Foodies will enjoy sumptuous delights from Weekend Market by The Clean Plate at UP Town Center on Dec. 11 to 13, Greenbelt Christmas Market on all weekends of Dec., and Awesome Food fair co-presented by lifestyle blog Our Awesome Planet on December 20 to 22. Moreover, your weekends will become extra special in Ayala Malls nationwide with a sequence of meet-and-greet events with Santa Claus, fireworks displays, chorales, booths for holiday treats, and the traditional Simbang Gabi.
