The 3-day Sale of SM City Sta. Mesa was an event I did cover last Saturday and being there brings old memories. It's a total recall of my college days and SM City Sta. Mesa is the place that we usually hang out when classes is over or still waiting for the next class. It's really great going back!
After arriving, I immediately coordinated with SM City Sta. Mesa staff (his name is Jack) and proceeded with the cover. Good thing I was able to catch up with the parade where Lorax meet Jollibee and roam around of the parade from first floor and up, making a beat of the band. After the parade, I started taking pictures of different sales and their discounts. There were lots of things on sale! I did go from down to up and down again.
After that tiring walk around I met with Jack near the Adobo Connection and introduced me to the franchise owner of the establishment.
From their list of different adobo types I was able to taste some of their dishes. Since I really enjoyed dishes cooked with coconut milk I get to try their Adobo sa Gata which is a chicken cooked in a normal adobo style and mixed with coconut milk. Afterwards we were offered desserts and I picked the Pandan Jelly. It got an ice creaming toppings on it.
A 3-Day Sale would not be complete without some show and performances from different celebrities, so for that day they have Aaron Villena hosted by one of the DJs of Tambayan 101.9 FM DJ Jasmin. Fans did make that ear busting shriek when Aaron Villena started singing and moving towards the audience.
An awesome day at SM City Sta. Mesa!
