#ChristmasAroundthePH: Kids sent letters to Santa and got their Christmas wish come true at SM Southmall

SM SOUTHMALL

For our 8th Christmas Around the PH blog series, we are here at SM Southmall to witness a Christmas grand event that made our heart melt after we learned that Santa will be here to grant the Christmas wishes of 70+ kids who wrote him  a letter at SM Southmall.

#ChristmasAroundthePH: 3D Video Mapping Show and The Little Prince display at SM City Fairview

SM FAIRVIEW

Our Christmas Around the PH blog series has reached the far reaches of the metro, here we landed in Fairview to visit the first ever mall in the region of North East Luzon.

I've been to this mall during my high school and early college years and its great to see that SM City Fairview is growing big and evolving to a much large scale mall.

#ChristmasAroundthePH: Tunnel of lights and Waterworks fountain show at SM Lanang Premier



Its another first for me to be here at SM Lanang Premier, when I heard about the opening of this mall years ago, I got so curious on what was it like, is it bigger than SM North? SM Aura or SM MOA? the highlight of the entire month of its opening is only focus to SM Lanang Premier, that's why I was aware of it and then the best part here is that this maybe the 1st SM Supermalls and a Premier mall of SM to have a connecting bridge from a hotel - Park Inn by Radisson hotel.

Okay, Im here and Its a wish come true to stay on that hotel and also visit SM Lanang Premier.

Peking Duck Ham and Pinoy Pork Ham for Christmas delivered by True Deli

True Deli - pinoy pork ham and peking duck ham

Our home is so ready for Christmas eve and we're so excited to open and re-heat this ready to eat Peking Duck Ham from TRUE DELI.

We know that pork ham are the best food for our noche buena, but for TRUE DELI's recommendation, they want us to try a much different and new food for Christmas.

Team #EATgetaway was at SM City Pampanga last Sunday to attend and cover the Nickelodeon Glittering Holiday Parade. The parade of Nickelodeon characters is scheduled every Sunday of December 2016, every 6pm and 8pm.

The event is free for all shoppers to watch the parade and skit of the characters, fireworks display and also a chance to have a photo op with their fave cartoon characters.


THE LONGEST MALL 
Glittering Holiday Parade at SM City Pampanga

I've learned that SM City Pampanga is the LONGEST MALL IN THE PHILIPPINES. Wow!! I didn't know, so when we learned about it, with the distance of 980 meters (almost 1KM), I made a joke that if you walk back and forth for 5 times, then you can qualify to join the 5KM fun run for beginners hahahaa.

yup, we walked back and forth, for 2 times and we got  lost inside...the mall is huge!! Lots of stores and never before seen branded boutiques that are available here in SM City Pampanga

The highlight of the day is the Nickelodeon Glittering Holiday Parade in SM City Pampanga
I thought that they will just parade around, but its great to hear that they will be doing a skit and also be part of the DINING WITH CHARACTERS that is scheduledevery Sunday at 4pm in Il Padrino restaurant.

Nickelodeon characters will visit a restaurant and join the fun with the dining guest.

Just scroll down if you want to view the activity.


SKY RANCH

The awesome addition here at SM City Pampanga is the SKY RANCH PAMPANGA.
Its different from SKY RANCH TAGAYTAY. here in Sky Ranch Pampanga, the entrance to the theme park is FREE, you can roam around and play with some booth games and pay as you ride to any park ride available inside.

Here we see the iconic Sky Ranch ferris wheel, just like in SM MOA, we call it MOA EYE.
Maybe here in Pampanga, they call it the Pampanga Eye.

BEARS OF JOY

CHRISTMAS CENTER PIECE

Its a like a Christmas ball ornament with decorations and at the middle there's a magical grand piano that plays music on its own.
