Mandaluyong Culture and Tourism

Mandaluyong is deemed as the "Shopping Mall Capital of the Philippines" because of its notable number of shopping and entertainment hubs. Located in Ortigas Center is Shangri-La Place, a residential and entertainment district owned by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. It comprises Edsa Shangri-La Manila, St. Francis Towers (one of the tallest residential towers in the Philippines when built) and Shangri-La Plaza (the only retail arm of the Shangri-La Group in the world).

To the north is St. Francis Square, SM Megamall (one of the biggest shopping malls and the premier mall of the largest mall chain in Asia) and the upscale retail arm of SM Malls, the Podium.For the blue-collar and low-cost consumers, there's EDSA Central and Star Mall to the Southwest. The Shaw Boulevard MRT Station of the MRT is a shopping hub itself, besides the fact that the station is connected to three other malls (Star Mall, Shangri-La Plaza and the newly renovated EDSA Central).

Along EDSA is the Robinson's Place Pioneer, owned by the second largest retail company in the country. Another entertainment hub is Liberty Center along Shaw Boulevard, which consists of Puregold supermarket, Yonex Badminton Court, a row of restaurants and establishments and home to the newly-constructed Liberty Park which holds nightly performances from different bands and musicians. Along Shaw Boulevard is the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club, considered as one of the finest golf courses in the world.

Among locals, Mandaluyong City is often used in jokes and puns pertaining to a person's mental health (e.g., a person whose mental well-being is suspect is often labeled as coming from Mandaluyong, the joke going "sa loob o sa labas?, which translated, means "inside or outside?"). This is because the National Center for Mental Health, the country's premier mental health center, is found within the city.

Travel Quotes:

I still make sure to go, at least once every year, to a country where things cannot be taken for granted, and where there is either too much law and order or too little. Christopher Hitchens

“Everyone carries his own inch rule of taste, and amuses himself by applying it, triumphantly, wherever he travels. Henry Adams

Philippines Cuisine Characteristics

The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.

This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
