Yipee! Enhora Buena to CITYMALL Commercial Centers Inc as it will formally open today with engrande preparacion.

The opening of  CITYMALL in Tetuan features Anne Curtis. I am looking on two positive effects with the opening of CITYMALL, one is that  Zamboanga City will have additional mall where locals and visitors can shop, dine or hang around. Second, if Anne Curtis will truly grace the opening of CITYMALL, it is a plus point for our city when it comes to enticing visitors to come over.

In the tourism parlance, Malls are considered tourism oriented establishments or TOEs (secondary ).They add up to the basic  amenities visitors /tourists consider when visiting a certain place,  be it for business or pleasure, unless of course you wanna do trekking or nature tripping then that would be a different story. But then, visiting a city, the presence of a mall can be an add on.

In the case of Citymall Tetuan, INASAL is there, ready to serve their yummy chicken, Ace hardware (where I normally frequent when I’m in the metropolis to buy some stuff for the house). Oh yes, Watson is dominantly positioned too. Lovely because it’s more spacious  than the other one located in another mall. Tan suksukan y yede pa kepet tiene vez el vicinos, uggghhh! Chinabank has its branch in Citymall too and Western Union, alya ya si Reng man retrieve suyu sen from his chat mate.. no tanto ding cay ta bisha ya el authoridad con ustedes, baka man pearly shell tu nuay na hora, na na na!

Well  based on the invitation I got, registration to attend the event is at 2:30pm. At 2:45 pm will be the mall blessing and the official public mall opening will be at 3pm. Its a date. See you baby..yay!
