85 Years of Ortigas & Co. and Greenhills Shopping Center Christmas On Display

Saturday, November 12, 2016

I was one of the few people invited to see what Ortigas and Company has prepared for the public in the Greenhills Shopping Center district. I felt like a kid again watching the new episode as they do this whole show with life size mannequin puppets just to tell important stories of faith, proper manners, or something where kids would actually learn from for a couple of years already. It started in the defunct COD mall that existed in the 80's at the Cubao district (now Araneta Center) but went to Greenhills Shopping Center district a few years ago since it was just culture dictating it.

Ortigas and Company is also celebrating their 85th year and to start off the celebration, they coordinated with the city of San Juan, some nearby schools and a couple of day care centers to get kids to watch the show for FREE right at the mall's parking lot. In the past, we used to watch these shows along a busy street cordoned off so we could still watch from the sidelines, but Greenhills actually reserved a place to watch it all, a very nice gesture.

Present was Ortigas and Co. Executives, the Mayor of San Juan city and the actual kids from the neighborhood. They pressed the button to start the show. It was lively, pretty to see and the kids would be learning a thing or two about how not to judge others whether they're rich or poor, not of royal blood, and that kids are supposed to be kids as much as they should want to.

For those who want to watch the show and shop at the same time, they're already open everyday and will have replays of the show. Just be there from 6-8PM, I went to the Parking 1B market place also earlier and found some really cute toys for Christmas. I guess it's time to get those cute god sons and god daughters some of Ninong's presents. 

Thanks Ortigas and Company for having us during the launch! It was so cool!
