For city dwellers like us, one of the most common ways to de-stress is hanging out at the mall. Whether it’s spending a few hours off for some alone time walking around, treating ourselves to a little bit of shopping or catching a movie or grabbing a bite with our barkada – malls have become a place of comfort. Spending time in malls has become so ingrained in our weekly routines. Chances are, you sometimes find yourself looking for a different kind of mall experience.
