Our SM Aura Experience

Yesterday, I went to SM Aura with the hubby and his family after hearing mass at St. Pio of Pietrelcina Shrine in Libis, QC. SM Aura is the newest mall in town. It’s located at the posh Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It’s right beside two other commercial centers: Market! Market! and Serendra.

One novelty shop was selling personalized magnetic name tags and my SIL almost bought a piece but remembered just in time that a friend who has recently come home from a work stint abroad had one for her as pasalubong.
