Despite having that big concrete box exterior, the inside of SM Lanang is huge and pretty. You'll see what I mean in th next photo...
Tadaaaa! Look how huge and stylish it is! Now I understand what Richie meant when he said I might find SM Aura pretty if I haven't been to SM Lanang. It really is different from the usual SMs.
Spaceous is the best word to describe it. And I love the floating Starbucks. It's in the middle of the mall and it looks like it's floating. The stores are pretty much the same as what we have here in Manila. Except that they didn't have an Eye 2 Eye store/booth which Richie and I were really hoping to find because we both didn't have sunglasses And we wanted to buy cheap but nice ones (because we almost always end up losing it or breaking it hehe.)
And then they also have an alfresco dining area at the second floor with pretty fountains. More restaurants are situated there. I can imagine this specific area being packed with people who are trying to unwind on a Friday night after work.
Too bad we didn't get to visit Ayala's Abreeza when we were there. Oh well, hoping there's a next time :-)
