Christmas Toyland launch of SM City Gensan

It’s the most awaited season of the year again, the season of joy, love and hope. It is the time of the year where everyone gets ecstatic and elated especially the children. This year, they are given the focus as the lighting of the giant Christmas tree is themed in Toyland.


The setting will be decorated with different kinds of toys and gifts which will be guarded by toy soldiers. A marching band will parade along the mall to invite the shoppers to witness the momentous lighting of the giant Christmas tree. The crowd will be entertained by a choir who will be singing Christmas carols with ballerinas dancing with them. Also, indoor fireworks will add more delight as the giant Christmas tree is being lighted for the kids and kids at heart. Christmas is the time to celebrate this very special season with family and friends. It’s time to be happy and peaceful, and to give and share the blessings. The essence of Christmas is the idea of gift-giving with Santa Claus around and gives the present to the kids. Truly, tis the season to be jolly!

Join this happy event! The Christmas Toyland will be on November 9, 2014, 5PM at the SM City Gensan Event Center.


The Day after Christmas

After a very merry christmas in General Santos City, today was just dreary. Pioneer avenue was a ghost town at 9am, J. Catolico was just starting to show signs of life and there were just a few souls in McDonalds for brunch.

On the other hand, as I was passing National Highway, there was a long line on Philhealth (you know, procrastination). You see, for Phihealth individual payers, they pay every quarter to avail of medical benefits for the next quarter. There are usually throngs of people in the months of March, June, September and December. There was also a line in Socoteco for their electric bill payments (this is unusual since for the past months I have not experienced any queuing up there).

KCC mall was still abuzz with shoppers (lucky KCC). I guess a lot of people are still in need of a lot of stuff and gifts or they are already grocery shopping for the Noche Buena.
