There's a buzz in town about the opening of Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City.  It's located along Aurora Boulevard cor. Dona Hemady Street (near St. Paul's QC).  The area used to be Magnolia's office, factory and big ice cream parlor.  When I was younger, we used to frequent this place just to get a banana split.  Seeing the major change in the vicinity plus bringing with me some good old memories, made the quick trip sentimental but at the same time exciting.  I went with the family earlier to get a glimpse of the newest mall in the metro and check out what kiddie activities can be done there.

Entrance facing Aurora Boulevard
It is not surprising to see upon entering the mall, that a number of shops hasn't opened.  The mall is well-lit, spacious and has a sense of it being a little high-end.  There are four levels only but shops or areas are zoned  and categorized, which is good for the consumers' malling experience.  Parking is located at the basement where you will also find Robinsons Supermarket, food court, restaurants, Tom's World, Gymboree and a few shops such as Saizen (where everything is P85) and Mercury Drug Store.

On the ground floor are shoes and apparel,  health and beauty and accessories shops.  The kids' section for clothes, activity area (like bouncy slide) and Toys R' Us  may be found on the second floor along with some restaurants.   If you go a level higher, you'll see four movie theaters of Robinsons Movie World   This is also where you'll see specialty shops for gadgets, phones and accessories.  Robinsons Department Store is from ground to up.
Each floor has an exit to the open-space at the back where you'll see a scenic landscaping (I'm guessing it's not yet fully developed) and my much sought for - the Magnolia Flavor House.
If you would notice in the photo above  it's fully occupied but still, I insisted, and got a menu.  We were told , it might take us forever until we get our orders.  Time is precious especially for the kids who were hungry at that time so we decided to eat at the food court where food is always readily available. :)

Verdict
I just found a new place to hang out with my kids during weekends or meet up for coffee or dinner with my amigas!  I am excited to see the fully operational mall in the coming weeks.  But as it is, albeit a little bare, we didn't get bored because there was something for the kids to do - PLAY!  Definitely, we'll be coming back. :)

  2. I think I was able to pass that area once or twice. Good to know that it has improved very well. The photo of Saizen made me miss Daiso. I hope they consider putting up a branch here in Bohol :D

  6. That's so cool having a new mall near your place. We don't have new malls in our area and have to go quite far away to shop in a mall.

  7. Hi Dominique nice to see you here. Where do you reside? :) Actually this mall is not that near to our place. But it's just one LRT ride or jeepney ride. :) Thanks for visiting.
