Now that All Souls’ Day is out of the picture, I expect preps for the Christmas season to be in full swing. Starting today, malls at Araneta Center — or Cubao, if you want to be old-school about it — will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. instead of 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. I welcome the adjustment, as this would allow me time to wander around the mall and relax after my shift. This also means I could still check out that salesgirl with the nice legs at Von Dutch before going home. Malls and pretty legs to bust the workday murk, why not?
Right. Tomorrow they’re gonna light up the Makati CBD for Christmas. Got to make plans now with the family to check out the light show at the Ayala Triangle. Always impressive, the past years we checked it out. Meanwhile, I expect the giant Christmas tree outside Araneta Coliseum to follow suit. All those lights twinkling merrily in the night, with music and the smell of food, and laughter everywhere, and 13th month cash to throw away, Jesus, what’s not to love about the holidays?
