I had the privilege to be invited to Sky Garden, a new part of SM North Edsa last May 23, 2009. Around 20 of us bloggers attended it, we were toured around the area, had lunch at one of the establishments there (Padi’s Point), watched a movie (A night at the museum 2) and went home happy.
I live in Quezon City & SM North Edsa is the mall closest to my house. I used to go there a lot when I was a kid, playing bowling, dining, shopping, etc. But for the past few years, I ended up going to malls outside QC so I wasn’t really aware of the new things in the mall. When I was invited to this event, I realized that there were a LOT of changes in the mall! SM North Edsa looks sooo cool now. Every time I want to go to a mall now, SM North Edsa is already part of my choices
The highlight is really Sky Garden, a great concept by SM. Located at the 2/F, the place has an environmental theme whereas the place is surrounded by plants, grass, trees. A lot of establishments too that are situated on water ponds that look like it’s floating (Cool, isn’t it?).
Sky Garden at SM North Edsa has the ff. Major Attractions:
- Roof Garden
This has 55 species of plants, grass & trees that grow on special type of soil. A great attraction if you want to just relax while walking around the area.
- The Sky Dome
Open for concerts, events & other activities, this is basically their performance area. Has a seating capacity of 1,000 and has a movable stage that is solely for the purpose of being flexible so they can accomodate all kinds of events.
When we were there, the Mossimo Bikini Contest is having their event that night at the Sky Dome. We had the opportunity to watch it but unfortunately, I was too tired to attend it so opted not to.
The next day, I returned to Sky Garden again coz I wanted to take more pictures of the place especially at night time. That day, the dog show event was ongoing at the Sky Dome. I entered & watched since it was free and also a friend of mine hosted the event. Took some pictures there. Here are some:
- Water Features
- Retail, Dining & Entertainment Outlets
Starbucks caught my attention the most even if it’s not yet open or even started construction/renovation yet. The floating stall/outlet thing is really quite obvious here. Excited to have one of my cofee bonding with friends at Starbucks SM North Edsa.
