Rainy Day Rescue

If you haven’t accepted it you, you are in denial. Manila is the land of malls. Believe it or not this nature loving girls is also a mall rat. Malls in the Philippines are so different as there is SO MUCH to do in malls. Bowling, laser tag, archery, movies, play places, mystery rooms etc etc etc. We’ve got it.
