Christmas 2016 at Glorietta

Makati CBD, Makati City

If Ayala Center is Makati CBD’s premier retail mecca, the venerable and ever-evolving Glorietta is its centerpiece. With a wide range shops and dining establishments, Glorietta offers shopping and other leisurely activities that are suitable to every type of budget. For this year’s Christmas, the mall kept things simple yet playful.

I dig the red and white scheme and the Christmas candy theme. However, if there’s a time where being louder and more spectacular is acceptable, it’s Christmas season – and I think Glorietta was being a little bit too conservative with this candy cane-inspired theme. What do you think?
