Greenbelt: Mall Alone 2.0

‘Luntiang sinturon’ is the literal Filipino translation of the word greenbelt. But if you’re in a malling mode, Greenbelt means only one thing: a place to see and to enjoy. Last Tuesday, I was there, not to shop and dine but for a photo gig. Why? Just to update a friend who used to visit the place.

I uploaded all the 46 photos in my flickr account but for this entry, I chose only ten. Not enough. Fifteen, still not enough. So for this today’s entry, I’ve got twenty five photos! I thought of writing a series, but what the heck, put them all at once and enjoy. I also thought of dividing the photos to indoor, outdoor and something in between but there are some overlapping shots and I just dropped it. Okay, its a lousy excuse for being blogilly lazy.🙂 I still have four more photos in my cellphone but for some strange reason, I cannot upload them unlike the others. My digicam turned lowbat when I was there so I used my cellphone for at least 15 shots.

The main entrance from the elevated catwalk going to Landmark

A quiet place for weary souls… Sto. Niño de Paz Chapel

Haw-haw de karabaw de Batuten

May halimaw kaya sa mga banga?

This artistic direction post is right in front of the Greenbelt 5 entance

The bridge, the frogs and the still water

My favorites! The butcher, the baker and the candle stick maker

Fishpond infront of the GB 4 entrance

Quiet.. A fishy meeting is going on

Excuse me… but i have a photo shoot to finish

A lone waiter not waiting for something

Five knights waiting for King Arthur

I wonder lonely as an escalator rider

Wanna taste these fruits?

I was tempted to wash my hands in this fountain

View from the third level going to the theaters

This is a dining area for Fuzion, a hip bar

There are several bars and restaurant in the area and I lost count of them. These three caught my attention simply because of their names.

Do they really serve their dishes in a banana leaf?

A haiku for Haiku..

Can you serve a verse?

While waiting for a cold drink

And my breezy dream?

This is a vodka bar that I’d like to try sometime.. Sino kayang magti-treat sa ‘kin dito?

For the culturally inclined shopper, this is a must destination

After the photo gig, I went to Landmark to buy some summer stuff for Uno and Jed. I was glad to find all that I needed under one roof. On my way out I passed by Glorietta and decided to have cup of coffee. The coffee shops overlooking the activity area were full so I went to the fourth floor. And there I found a perfect place to rest. I didn’t get a cup of coffee but something else. The barista said its one of their best summer offering. He didn’t disappoint me.

To answer the question written on the table: I’m just a bit tired after my Greenbelt gig..

NOTE: WordPress.com has a new dashboard interface and many users are newbie including me. I couldn’t link my flickr files to the images so I ended up uploading the pictures here which took me a thousand years to do!

I know I’m not alone… and its the joy of blogging.🙂 Plus the fact that somewhere, someone will reminisce about Greenbelt and will dream of coming home.😉
