Ayala Malls Made Mother's Day Exciting for Moms and Their Loved Ones

Celebrating motherhood can be done any time and anywhere as long as we have our family with us. Still, the title of being called "Mom" is most felt when people find time to make the second Sunday of May a really special one by filling it with surprises and fun activities. 

Pop the balloon corner
That's exactly what Ayala Malls did last week. Manila's premier shopping destination held a thrilling celebration of everything about being mom during Mother's Day and even the days before that.

Ayala Malls prides itself for being the perfect family-friendly place for mom and her loved ones because she can do the grocery, shop for stuff, avail of pampering treatments, and watch live entertainment there.

arts and crafts for the whole family
I was at Market! Market! this past Mother's Day and saw for myself how my fellow moms got to enjoy mini-games and other activities inside the mall. Every hour, names of mommies were announced and they were awarded with gift certificates and other prizes. 

love notes for mom
In one area, moms got to throw darts at colorful balloons that, once popped, revealed a prize each. I tried the game and won a pouch bag and a shoe bag! There was also a Mommy Crafts Corner where families with young kids got crafty and imaginative with their art creations. A wall was also set up to display little Love Notes for Mom from their sweet children. 

I spent most of the afternoon though at Nailaholics Nail Salon & Spa where I had a much-needed manicure and pedicure. The nail technicians who worked on my hands and feet were pretty good. I chose a nice lavender nail polish shade to veer away, for once, from my usual choices that are either beige, blue, or black. Loved the result!

Bossing's Grill
Next, we had an early dinner at Bossing's Grill, where we were served with really tasty Filipino food. I loved their Pinakbet and Corned Beef Sinigang! The Mini-Turon, for dessert, is also a must-try! Do visit this place located outside the main mall and keep updated of their reasonably-priced promos by liking Bossing's Grill Fiesta Market Market on Facebook.

Kyla in Market! Market!
Capping off Mother's Day for many of the mallgoers was a mall show by Kyla who was promoting her new album called Journey. She sang really nice songs and interacted warmly with her many fans.  I look forward to listening to her album at in the coming days. 

Mother's Day activities --- checked!
I am sure many moms and their loved ones who were there at Market! Market! that Sunday had a grand time bonding over a lot of stuff. Then again, with the next Mother's Day being another year away, don't  let this stop you from enjoying what Ayala Malls have to offer on other days.
