COPPER. Today, Jacob and I headed to SM Aura because it was open to the public that day and we kinda failed to attend the night before. Anymoo, turns out, it wasn’t such a good idea. As you enter the building, instead of admiring how great the design was, how many international new boutiques there are, people are rubbing elbows with you, looking at you from head to toe, not having a place to sit and everything else you could have expected at a mall opening. :| Haha. Nevertheless, I got so excited that Suiteblanco is in Manila now! OMG. I would’ve drained all my cash if I hadn’t controlled myself (unlike my sister who went crazy because it was her favorite store, Blanco from Spain)
I’d wait around a couple more weeks for stores to open and for people to less likely visit because it’s not your usual family mall. It’s kind of like Rockwell with an SM department store attached to it and a foodcourt ..and a beautiful roofdeck.
Speaking of roofdeck, Jacob and I decided to take outfit shots there. But it was crazy because there were just too many people walking around, standing around, sitting. Anyway, yes, I recommend visiting SM Aura but don’t expect a comfortable, relaxing experience.
