Ayala Center Cebu's Terraces

In 2008, Cebu Holdings spent P600-million to redevelop an already lovely man-made lagoon beside Ayala Center Cebu into some sort of godly shopping-dining utopia.

You can click the image for a much larger photo, but it still can't capture how awe-inspiring the place really is. I can't decide whether it's prettier on a clear sunny day-- with the sun making everything colorful and radiant with the skyscrapers of Cebu Business Park as a backdrop-- or at night, when the artificial lights do the work of blending with the landscaping for a hypnotizing glow.

It still blows my mind and takes a fistful of effort to look upon this scene and wrap my head around the fact that I'm still in the Philippines. Much more, I'm still in Cebu.


  1. True. Ayala Land is my favorite real estate company by far. It seems as if everything they touch turns to gold.

  2. Sometimes I think we should just let them run the country. They're the Philippine equivalent of Google, consistently churning out something amazing and constantly outdoing themselves, spending enormous amounts of money and still turning in a profit.

  3. but i think the sm prime holdings is much better that the ayala company..isn't it?

  4. SM has their audience... I don't mean any disrespect, but their focus is more on quantity rather than quality. The designs of Ayala Malls is in a different league.
