After singing ourselves hoarse Saturday last week, Anna and I proceeded to the new SM Marikina in a spur-of-the moment decision.  We just wanted to see what stores and restaurants would be very convenient for us.  Last Friday evening, we decided to go back and have dinner at The Old Spaghetti House.  Finally, there’s a decent pasta restaurant in the area!

What impressed me most about this mall is the design.  It doesn’t look like an SM mall!  I especially love the façade from the inside.  Anna calls it the Marikina City Airport.

There’s a good number of shops, but their floor areas are smaller than usual.  The store that really got me excited was Power Mac Center!  There’s no opening date yet, but it’s really there, right at the corner of the Cyberzone entrance.  And speaking of Cyberzone, this one beats the one in Megamall, design and lighting-wise.  I hope they don’t eventually clutter it with too many kiosks.
