Martin and Robin Nievera Perform at Westgate Center Alabang Relaunch

Fun and laid-back -- that's how it is in South Metro Manila where residents like us still get to enjoy city life blended with nature and the suburban spirit. Here, there's a nice commercial destination that's considered a "village within a big village." 

the South vibe -- fun and laid-back
Westgate Center combines innovative dining, retail, and lifestyle concepts in a street-style, neo-cosmopolotan setting. It shows off the Alabang lifestyle -- a passionate, relaxed, and artistic one where this southern city reveals its more playful side.

This community-within-a-community feel has just been reinforced with Westgate's recently completed renovation. Now, its new look features a corner plaza with a green wall, a landscaped activity park, and even more refreshing greenery.

Martin sang some of his timeless songs
even the millennials were tapping their feet :)
An Alabang resident himself, Concert King Martin Nievera and his family are often seen enjoying what Westgate has to offer since his house is just located nearby. Thus, it was very fitting that he and his son, Robin, were the performers in the mini concert held during the newly reconceptualized village mall's relaunch.

Martin, who continues to be a crowd favorite since he started his singing career more than three decades ago, gamely rendered some of his most popular songs despite an unexpected thunderstorm. He even joked to members of the press not to write anything about the rain falling just because he sang.  

Robin definitely inherited the musical genes of his famous parents
A trooper like his dad, Robin Nievera, likewise entertained the audience with a few songs and a duet with Martin. I, personally, didn't mind the rain (nor the thunder) because both of them gave really good performances amidst the bad weather. 

Joy Polloso, Senior Vice-President for Commercial Centers and Retail Management of Filinvest, affirmed that Martin is a regular patron of Westgate and that he's the best choice as the featured artist to re-introduce the place.

happy to finally meet this nice and friendly guy
"Westgate is a community where business owners and visitors have a passion for life. It's a laid-back haven where everyone can escape the hustle-and-bustle of city life and enjoy simple pleasures [at the] pocket retail and dining establishments arranged in clusters, just like a village," she described.

The 9.2 hectare open-air retail concept challenges the confines of the mall setting and instead created a main street ambiance conducive to relaxation and recreation. "We invite everyone to Westgate to come and take a walk at the village and discover the passions, lifestyles, hobbies, and new places to dine and bond," added Polloso.
