Why it's #FamFirstAtSM

This summer's heat is so intense (yes, intense! haha) we wanted to be in an air-conditioned place all the time, wanted to have a nice meal without cooking and preparing it, and even without washing the dishes! Haha! And yes, we have malls! Tadaaa!


I remember my childhood with SM. I grew up in Antipolo, and I have relatives in Quezon City. Whenever we visit them, there are times we go to SM North Edsa to bond and eat out. Yes, that mall. And I honestly thought it was the only SM mall in the whole country! Hehe! Ah my childhood.

Now, we have a number of SM Malls in the country and my favorites are SM Aura Premier and SM Makati. SM Aura because it's nearest to our place, and the smell of that mall is just heavenly! We always wonder how they do it! Or what scent it is! Heehee! Care to share, SM Aura? Hehe! SM Makati, well, because I love it's beauty section, I would be lost in it, and even though it's pretty small, I love that I can find everything in it, without walking a ton!

One of the highlights of my summer this year is visiting "Weekends at the Courtyard" at SM Aura, it is also Mother's Day that day so it is extra special. The place's vibe is so different from the whole mall. I love Art, and I love that they are trying to reach the art to people, you know what I mean? It is easier to access and easier to see. Even the kids are enjoying because it's colorful. My kid appreciating art. This is one SM moment I would definitely remember!

What we did on that day was so many. We roamed around the mall, bought my toddler some shirts because it was sale! Yay! This was the first time she chose her shirts. And she carried it proudly! Haha! We went to the Skypark, this is where Maco ran around! I like that they have space like this, just grass and some water fountains. Kids love water fountains and to run around, so I really think this is just perfect for family bonding on Sundays or whenever! That time though, there's an installation of Fantastic Beasts art, and everyone is taking photos and enjoying a few activities, and yes, it's free. Who said nothing is free anymore? Btw, that moment at SM Aura's Weekends at the Courtyard, my toddler and I also had a portrait taken for free! It was Mother's Day that time, so. Heehee ;)

I remember when Maco was still young, when she needs to be breastfed, these malls are our go-to place if we needed to go to mall since they have awesome breastfeeding rooms! I love that it's family friendly too, not just for mom and daughter, since my husband could lounge while waiting for us to finish. Hehe!

I also like that they have high chair at their food court! Two thumbs up for this one! 

What I admire most with SM other than having affordable items, is that they have really friendly staff, no kidding! I haven't encountered anyone who's masungit. From SM Supermarket staff to their staff at SM Department Stores, and even those in the elevator, they're all friendly, and would answer your question with a smile, in fairness. Well, to the SM Malls I've visited at least, I haven't encountered a masungit one.

If you're still asking, why it's #FamFirstAtSM? Because apparently, they've got it all for us! ;p
