Cube = Cebu

When SM unveiled their design for Seaside City at the South Road Properties, many people were automatically intrigued by the shape of the mall.

J Centre Mall is the newest mall in Cebu. It is located along A. S. Fortuna Street in Mandaue City. If my sources are right, the mall is just one-third of a huge complex which would also include a hotel tower and a condominium tower in the coming years. The construction of the complex was […]

Fuente Is Rising

Robinsons Cybergate Cebu opened its doors to the public last December 8, 2009. The place was still a bit dusty when I went there last night to take some photos.  Considering its size and location, I would have to say that it is a very gorgeous mall. If you’ve seen the area before this building […]

Changing Gaisano

When you hear the word Gaisano, you think of a popular chain of stores run by a very rich family. The stores, although usually lacking in any aesthetic merit, are almost always filled to the rafters from the moment they open til the salesladies are forced to act rude just to shoo shoppers away. LOL. […]
