Magical Christmas Carnival at SM City Taytay

SM City Taytay literally wowed everyone during the 2018 Christmas Launch with its theme: Christmas Carnival! Truly, Christmas, everyone’s favorite time of the year is here!  You could actually feel the Christmas vibe when you enter the mall!

The event area was decorated well in red, gold and white and the carnival theme brought me back to the joys of carnival rides and exciting shows when I was still little girl.

Everyone was treated to a spectacular event with wonderful numbers hosted by the lovely Ms. Saab Magalona!

A series of wonderful numbers followed inspired by THE GREATEST SHOWMAN movie.  The numbers were enhanced even more with Jugglers, contortionists, heart-stopping acrobatics, songs, dances and other theatrics.

Stunning and heart stopping performances


Carnival Fun!

The event was graced with the presence of Town officials and SM Management and look – Santa flew all the way from the north pole to be with Kids! (And kids at heart too.)

A happy heads up to pet owners and lovers in Rizal Area! We now have a nearby PET PARK at SM City Taytay for our furry friends and fur babies! Yay!

Pets and owners participated in an opening ceremony where all pets were prayed for and blessed.   Then, they were treated to freebies, product samples  and complimentary grooming.  There were raffles and games and a competition  for SM Pet Ambassador.

The SM PetPark features an agility area for the dogs, mini pet pool, colorful benches, an event area for future pet events and Doggie’s Choice Pet Village.

The SM Pet Park is SM Supermall’s way of giving back and contributing to our community’s development. Through this, SM Supermalls shows how our beloved pets are also welcome for a better mall experience together with the pets.

Thanks to SM City Taytay, this fur baby now has a nearby park!

SM Pet Park: Mall experience for our furry friends!

For the first time ever, SM Supermalls will build a Pet Park in SM City Taytay  to bring happiness to pet owners and extend a one-of-a kind mall experience to our furry friends!  The ground breaking ceremony was held last Saturday, March 25,  at SM City Taytay’s BPO – open parking area and was graced by SM City Taytay Mall Manager, Ms. Maureen Fernandez (far left),  Doggie’s Choice owners, adorable Diku (Doggie’s choice mascot) and Philippine pet fashion icon Ms. Bernie Alfonso of Doodles Paw Couture (3rd from left. With them are pet owners with their cute puppies.


No need for pet owners to travel so many miles (not to mention be stuck in traffic)  to visit a pet park in Eastwood, Greenhills or Tiendesitas,  Now, they can enjoy a place where their “fur babies” are welcome and can run and play alongside their friends.


Two months from now, I imagine seeing happy people,  laughters in the air as happy puppies run and jump and dance around and around under a bright sky.


Diku – Doggie’s  Choice mascot stars the groundbreaking event.

May this be the first of many pet parks to be built by SM.  They truly got it all for us and these little four-legged ones.

Vice Mayor Carlito Gonzaga mentioned a connection between ponies and Christmas when he gave his brief speech.  Jesus indeed entered  the holy city of Jerusalem, carried by a Pony! What a beautiful way to start the Christmas merriment knowing that as we celebrate Christ’s birth, we have so much love and joy to give.

Christmas is truly here and SM Malls continue to add merriment and cheers to the season.   On top of the Season Sale, Christmas launch  and the Christmas carols each time we shop, SM City Taytay prepared yet another way to excite and cheer us all.

December 18 launched the GRAND CHRISTMAS PARADE and it started when we all heard Drumbeats!  Christmas trumpets and trombones played as the band marched like toy tin soldiers in their colorful costumes.





The band was followed by Snow Flake Ladies in glittering, sparkling silver and white.

And what is a parade without colorful, glittery costumes worn by pretty, smiling fairies with wings!


The adorable dwarf mascots – sweet, happy and cute in their costumes.




My favorite – Snow White and her handsome prince.


Presents and gifts, followed by Santa’s elves!




The parade circled the mall as everyone watched and got a glimpse of the lovely parade.  It ended with a dance presentation and confetti!



What a wonderful way to usher in the Christmas week! Christmas is truly here –  A joyful celebration of Jesus’ coming to earth that wonderful Christmas night – the best present of all.

This Grand Christmas Parade brought cheers to everyone and made the kid in us alive again. Have a wonderful Christmas Everyone!

Pancake House Now Open at SM City Taytay

When I think of Pancake house, I think of family, celebrations, quality time with loved ones and delightful time with good friends. I have always loved their pan chicken, tacos and their signature pancakes up to this day.  Naturally, you can imagine my excitement when I learned that Pancake house is now at SM City Taytay.

This Filipino owned company has been around since 1974.  This is their 2nd branch in Rizal.


Preparations for the formal opening


Taytay Mayor Janet De Leon Mercado and Chief Operating Officer Gretz Florencio Rivera formally opened Pancake House branch in SM City Taytay last August 8.

The place seems so inviting, with its warm yet modern accents added to the over all “homey” theme. Diners would surely enjoy not just the food but the experience as well.
