this is the Roman Catholic Church in The Mall of Asia Complex, The church was built with help from the owners of the SM Group of Companies which are devout Roman Catholics and they donated the land where the church was built. It was finished in 2000. The church is packed with worshippers on weekends and it sits in the middle of the Mall of Asia Complex. The Church is also a popular venue for weddings too.
catholic masses starts at 6:00 am everyday and they have 4 mass schedules on sundays.

I love this place! It has almost every kind of entertainment, well, maybe not giant Ferris Wheels and the like, there are lots of activities for every member of the family.
The local performers are world class, but once in a while, world-renowned celebrities perform there too.
If you are not into the arts, there's shopping, dining, strolling, clubbing...and if you're a high roller, there's a casino there too comparable to the ones in Las Vegas.
Within the premises, you will find theShrine of St. Thérèse and Columbarium) there are five star hotels nearby. The place is conveniently located very near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's Terminal 3.
Part one of my San Miguel By the Bay tips.
this is the reinvention of the old baywalk in Manila Proper since the new mayor of manila dismantled the old restaurants and bars at the old baywalk in Manila at the Roxas Boulevard. Directly adjacent to Manila Bay, the park also doubles as a food strip, wherein several bars, restaurants and food stalls are established. Due to the increasing number of visitors it caters to everyday, the strip is flourishing as a multi-purpose outdoor space. The San Miguel by the Bay at the Esplanade is a recreational strip which is part of the 19.5-hectare reclaimed land of SM Mall of Asia, the fourth largest shopping mall in the world. Again, The San Miguel by the Bay features a lot of bars, lounges and restaurant including my fave hooters and Viking Buffet. Plus if has spctacular views of the famous Manila Sunset.
The Action at the Bay starts at 10:00 am up to 12:00 am everyday

the first integrated Mutli-Gaming and Shopping Area in Manila. it is located in the sprawling Newport City Complex. it's anchor is the huge Resortsworld casino and has A Marriot Hotel awnd Maxim's Hotel and is just across the new NAIA Terminal 3. This Huge Resorts world complex is a partnership of Resorts World International BHD with local filipino partners and is just one of the three Resorts World Complexes in Asia (the other ones are in Genting Malaysia and Singapore, pls see my tips there of other resorts world) but is definitely the smallest huhuhu since it does not have its own amusement park like the genting amusement park in resorts world genting or the universal studios in resorts world singapore. Inside the huge complex is about 1,574 hotel rooms, a 30,000 square meter (323,000 square feet) casino and a 30,000 square meter shopping mall (will do separate tips of each)
I am not a fun of theme parks but this is the first one I ever visited 5 years ago. I had so much fun and before I migrated to Canada, me and my 2 best buddies in traveling paid a visit and nurtured our inner child within. What I like about this park is its proximity and accessibility as well as it was organized and have lots of things to offer. I enjoyed the Star Flyer which is the first inverted roller coaster ride in the country and imported from California and also the Surf dance. I just love it. We also tried the Snow World which is like winter inside with ice sculptures. Don't forget to try the max Rider, it's like airsoft though it uses laser technology. The 3 of us lose on this game and we only had 2 opponent :) It's our first time so we have good reason to lose :) There are lots of games as well if you want to bring home stuffies.
It's better to come during weekdays because there are no queue for the rides. It opens at 4 PM on Weekdays and 2:00 PM during weekends. The RIDE ALL YOU CAN varies from 400 to 600 pesos depending on season. Try to go to Star City, where fun begins.
If you want to relax have a massage, try Wensha spa which is open 24/7. It is a lot cheaper than other spas for 580 pesos, you can avail of an hour-long full-body massage, free use of the shower, pools, sauna, and steam room and there's free buffet food. You can stay there for 6 hours. The locker rooms were good, with padded benches, lots of toiletries, and a wristband that serves as your key. The massage was great and they are good at it. I had a full body massage. The place was quite clean and spacious.
Visiting this center is a good opportunity for students and enthusiasts of science discoveries to see inventions and simulations of what the science world is about.
Aside from the planetarium which is the main attraction, visitors can check out other section in the center such as the virtual reef, earthquake simulators, robotics, image port and the grossology (simulates different gross smell... yikes)
Price per head: P330.00
I recommend the place although the entrance fee is a little bit expensive.
Have a glimpse of the GlobAmaze and watch it as the graphic moves; located at the front of Mall of Asia, the first and only full global video display in Asia with its high resolution and full display graphics made possible by the LED’s 26,300 pieces of point lights.

There's huge bronze circle similar to that of the Universal Studios Theme Parks. The first IMAX theater can be found on the mall. I actually watched Superman before on this theater.
It has a good view of the Manila bay and sunset. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from mostly are located at the 2nd level of the mall facing the bay. There's a park with some bars at the bay area outside the mall.
