It’s only a few days before Mother’s Day! Gateway Mall, Ali Mall and Farmers Plaza at Araneta Center are providing a host of ways for moms and their kids enjoy this special day.
Come May 8, your Mother’s Day gimmick will be on us! For a minimum purchase of two (2) Pacquiao-Mosley tickets at the Cineplex or Big Dome, or a minimum spend of Php 500.00 at any of the participating restaurants, moms and kids get a FREE SPA PASS and FREE KIDDIE PASS respectively!
The FREE SPA PASS entitles moms to have a refreshing facial, soothing massage, have their nails done, get a quick hair fix and enjoy free make up lessons at the Activity Areas of Gateway, Ali Mall and Farmers Plaza. While the moms indulge in the pampering sessions, the kids can while away the time using their FREE KIDDIE PASS at Play Wise (Gateway and Ali Mall), or enjoy the giant inflatables (Farmers Plaza) with their dads.
But the fun doesn’t end there. Each mom gets a stamp on her pass from each station. They can drop the completed pass and get a chance to win a special prize package! As a souvenir of this memorable Mother’s Day, diners and shoppers may likewise enjoy the services of our “mamarazzi”, our roving photographer who will take candid shots of moms and their kids enjoying their day. Photos may be claimed at the Activity Area after two hours and will also be posted at the Araneta Center Facebook Page.
Every day moms dote over their families. On Mother’s Day, make sure you give these hardworking ladies the best pampering they can get only at the Araneta Center!
Meanwhile in Lima, Peru, Miley Cyrus beat out “Courtney Love fartgasming” as the worst thing Kurt Cobain has ever heard with her version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
This mess is going to make Kurt commit suicide AGAIN and will definitely be the catalyst for Courtney Love sticking a dirty heroin needle directly into her eardrums.
Imagine yourself sipping coffee while gazing at the Eiffel Tower or Arc de Triomphe or shopping for clothes and perfumes in the fashion capital of Paris? Or perhaps you would rather inhale the arts, culture and heritage of Austria through its classical architectural buildings, cathedrals, churches and galleries or romp at the hills made alive by the movie, Sound of Music? Then again, maybe you’d rather savor a strong helping of history through the Anne Frank house, museums, open-air markets, diamond factories and historic buildings or food trip at the Netherlands and Germany. Better yet, breathe in the rich religious aura of the newly beatified Blessed John Paul II at the Vatican City.

No further away than a picture,
A smile or remembered phrase,
Our loved ones live in memory,
So close in many ways.
For how often does a sunset
Bring nostalgic thought to mind,
Of moments that our
Loved one shared,
In days now left behind?
How often has a flower,
Or a crystal summer sky,
Brought golden reflections
Of happy times gone by?
Yes, memory has a magic way,
Of keeping loved ones near,
Ever close in mind and heart,
Are the ones we hold most dear.
Our dear colleague and friend Arch. Pablo E. Intalan passed away peacefully in the grace of the Lord last May 3 at the ripe age of 84. His remains lie in state at Christ the King Chapels, Christ the King Church, Greenmeadows, Libis, Quezon City.
In this connection, the Araneta Group will be offering a mass today (May 4) at around 7 pm at Christ the King Church. Everyone is requested to attend as we bid our last goodbyes to our dear PEI.
Let us all pray for the eternal repose of his soul.
