Awaken Amazing at Ayala Mall Solenad: Mixing Traditional with New Ways to Celebrate Christmas!

It was my first time coming at Ayala Mall Solenad in Laguna. It has a Bonifacio High Street vibe but more chill and breezy because it is near Tagaytay.

Families and friends having their bonding time were a common sight on my visit on a Saturday evening.

You can already feel the holiday season with Solenad’s decorations and activities around the mall. They will have the annual Festival of Lights and a 3D mapping display.

With the rise of social media and online games, Ayala Malls are highlighting Pinoy games through fun traditional games that your friends and families can enjoy while in their mall. Partnering it with folk songs with a modern take and new OPM songs that relives old and traditional games that we use to enjoy.
