Family day in Robinson's Magnolia

The first time I saw this mall was during our visit to the hardware gurus in Gilmore QC to repair our desktop CPU and this laptop, since it was just one street away from Gilmore. At night-time this mall reminds me of somewhat like a mini BGC from the outside, but from the inside, it's mostly high-end shops with the exception of Robinson's department store and Toys R US, bench and penshoppe. I considered Sprinfield and Aeropostale as somewhat mid-pricey for my taste. I instantly loved this mall because there are tons to do inside and outside. Inside there are shops and restos that range from mid-high-end to not-so-highend. In fact right now, there are some shops that are on sale. I happen to have bagged some sale items from springfield and bench. What's good about this mall is that it is not really crowded, and from what I can see, only the residents nearby frequent the restos. I would suggest eating out at the basement restos for much more budget-friendly selections.

This mall somewhat reminds me of Sunway Pyramid in Kuala Lumpur, from the inside with regards to the stores, but from the outside it's totally different.

Outside they have an ice cream shop, coffee shops, pedal go-kart rental (which me and Toby absolutely love), Or you can just sit-down and rest on the staircases or flower pot near the grand fountain. There's also a kid's train that goes-around.

The mall is accessible from the LRT-2. It's basically in-between Gilmore and Betty Go-Belmonte stations. Which is nearer I am not really sure but from Gilmore I just walked going to it as just one street away. I think the street name is hemady, and this is corner Aurora Boulevard where the LRT2 trail is. There is also a condo development within the compound which is owned also by Robinson's, the Robinson's Magnolia. From what I can see it is not yet tenanted.

This mall is also a respite from someone like me who's already used to Greenbelt, Glorietta or even MOA. I would suggest that if you have to go to Gilmore for some techie stuffs, try to pass-by this mall. If you have kids, so much the better since they'll love it. One thing that's nice also is that the guards are courteous and the restrooms are clean.
