An afternoon at Centrio Mall

After a very long afternoon nap, we readied  ourselves and tagged along Tita Vangie and her grandchildren. We headed to Cagayan de Oro's newest hub, Centrio Ayala Mall.

We left Igor and Gabby at Little Martians for a 30 minute playtime while, me and my brother and Ate Aimee roamed around Centrio.

Centrio got its name from the combination of 2 words, Center and Rio.  Center meaning the heart of the city as it pose at the center of Cagayan de Oro's shopping, entertainment and business. And Rio, which means river which is very poplular in Cagayan de Oro.

What I love about Ayala Malls is its trade mark of gardens and flowing water.  This is translated in Centrio's garden where two large humongous acasia trees stood in the limelight.

Aside from its stunning garden it also has an Activity area which can hold 300 people.  The mall is zoned per level according to the family's needs.  In the first level, high-end shops, book store, food chains, and the first in Mindanao, Rustan's Fresh Supermarket. The second level houses family and kids store, activities shops and Robinsons Department Store which also extends to the 3rd floor.  The top most floor or the 3rd floor is the house of the IT zone and wellness and also Ayala Cinemas which includes 3 200 seater 2D Cinema and a 300 seater 3D Cinema.

While waiting for my cousins to arrive from work, we stayed at the JCo Donuts.  Like the other branches around the Philippines, long queue and all seats are occupied.  So we ordered a box of the famos donuts and we added coffee and chocolate drinks.  Good thing, we got some seats just after we finished with our orders.

IT was fun bonding with my family. We only get to see each other at least once a year but we are surely feel loved.
