History - Parañaque City Today

In May 2001, SM City Sucat (Formerly SM Supercenter Sucat) was formally launched, and it became the 1st SM Mall Franchise in Parañaque City, the Supercenter was changed later to SM City, and it became a larger and wider mall.

In November 2002, the second SM City mall in Parañaque City was launched, SM City Bicutan, becoming one of the most popular malls in Parañaque City after Uniwide Coastal Mall.

In February 2003, the City of Parañaque celebrated their 5th Cityhood Anniversary.

In September 2007, the first strip mall located in Sucat, Parañaque City was "Santana Grove". It has more than 10 restaurants and 1 coffee house chain.

In February 2008, the City of Parañaque celebrated their 10th Cityhood Anniversary.

In April 2008, the Pergola Lifestyle Mall in BF Homes was formally opened and launched.

In August 2008, the Great Mall of Asia was launched and located in Diosdado Macapagal Blvd., Paranaque City.

In spite of the rapid growth in infrstructure and the revenue that the city has been gaining in the last few years, Parañaque has yet to go back to its "subdivision" roots and address the rising reports in crime - burglary, holdups, rape and streetgang violence. Most recently, the city has been plagued with crimes involving current call center workers in and around the city. With the upswing in the call center business in last 2 years, Parañaque has yet publicly come out and identify contingencies measures and visibility to protect these wave of employees who are mostly graveyard - 900pm to 900am, shift workers.

Northern Philippine Cuisine

For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
