Checking Out Robinsons Magnolia Mall – God Not Another Mall in the Already Crowded Metro

Last month I got to check out Robinsons Magnolia – the newest mall that replaced the once happy ice cream place most families grew up with – Magnolia Ice Cream House.

While most of the stores aren’t open yet, the stores, dining choices and layout resembles a combination of SM Megamall, Trinoma and Robinsons Place.

SM might as well tear down their dying SM Sta Mesa and turn it into a park, unless they want their basement to be submerged again.  (lol)

Kinda disappointed to see every vacant lot around cities being turned into either a condo, commercial area or mall.  What about the traffic?  Can’t it be a garden for once?  It’s getting more horrible and congested to get around.

 

Back to the mall, the once vast Magnolia Ice Cream House is now a little ice cream shop.

What do you think of their prices? Kinda taking advantage of the nostalgia don’t you think?

 

Okay, while I hate to see another mall crammed into an already crowded area, there are some things I still liked about Robinsons Magnolia

Outdoor areas on all floors
