As a BGC office boy, walking around BGC from any of my weekly-chosen-BGC-hotels to my office in 4th avenue, I normally pass by these malls, go inside these big facades, buy coffee, milk tea, ice cream, or any refreshments from some interesting shops, window glance on some of my preferred brands, or meet some friends. As I am always asked about these places, why not write a blog about some of my favorite malls (in no particular order) and just send my travellingpeoples blog to a friend or to anyone who might need it.
