  • It's a payday weekend! Make the most out of it and enjoy quality bonding time with the family. Do something fun, eat good food, shop and unwind. Need ideas? Here are several things happening this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday you should check out:

    What to do

    Have a fun family day at PH's biggest Timezone

    The biggest Timezone in the country is now open at Ayala Malls Feliz in Pasig. Aside from arcade games, of course, it now has a 500-square meter trampoline park

    There are also rides, videoke rooms, a short-lane bowling alley, and a four-storey playground for kids. Ready for a day of fun? 

    Splash and play at the Giant Unicorn Island

    Inflatable Island in Subic is Asia's biggest floating waterpark already, but it has something more for the kids (and kids-at-heart). It has opened the colorful and irresistably cute Giant Unicorn Island that features Baba's Super Slide, The Rainbow Walk, Slippery Slopes, the Floating Cinema and more.

    Where to Eat

    Lunch or dinner at Corner Market



    This isn't your typical food hall! The Corner Market, at The Podium in Mandaluyong, is also the country's first-ever indoor farmer's market and features 17 different merchants. The interiors are picture-perfect too.



    Go for food options like The Meat Depot where you can choose your own kind of seafood or cut of meat and have it cooked on the spot. For kids, there's Pizza Morena, Birdhouse for their chicken, and dessert options like Merry Moo and baked goodies from The Rabbit Hole. Read more about The Corner Market here.

    There's now a DIY waffle bar in town! The Waffable at UP Town Center lets its customers design their own waffle. Toppings include fresh fruits, nuts, chocolate, candy, syrups, and more.

    The thick-cut waffle is served on a stick which makes them easier to munch on and have to-go. Merienda at the mall couldn't be sweeter with a scoop of ice cream drizzled with caramel on top of a waffle in hand. The kids are going to love it!
