The SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City at the end of EDSA is considered one of the biggest mall in the world, and has the largest skating rink in Southeast Asia.
We arrived at the mall a little after 10 and we immediately bought an all-day ticket (P390) to the skating rink. She went ahead while waiting for her two companions. However, their arrival was delayed as one of our daughter's cousin's father had to run some errand.
Since, it was almost 12 noon and her skating buddies haven't arrived yet, we decided to have lunch first at the A Veneto Pizzeria. We last ate here about two years ago and we found the servings really big. While waiting for our order, I noticed that there were soldiers just outside the restaurant.
Upon closer scrutiny, I found out that they were from different eras. There were Katipuneros and Guardia Civil from the 19th century. German Nazi, Japanese as well as Filipino soldiers circa World War II. I failed to find out what the occasion was as they started with their parade.
After a while our orders arrived. We ordered their family platter, which consists of 4 chicken wings, 4 crab sticks, cheddar munchies and french fries. It came with catsup and ranch dressing (i think). The fries was not as crispy as I would have wanted it and so was the chicken wings, which was also not spicy. I liked the cheddar munchies and the crab stick though.
