It was a laid-back kind of Sunday for the two of us who decided it was best to avoid the holiday rush in the malls but wanted to get out of the house. I thought I could do a bit of shopping in their bazaar but nothing really caught my attention. Everything was just super marked-up Divisoria stuff anyway. But hey, at least the bazaar venue was air-conditioned! And the entrance was (and still is) free.
There were more or less ten food stalls and a beer station in the 'hub' so it's not exactly what foodies would call a food heaven, but the choices were more than enough for us who just wanted to chill. Besides, a beer station is always more than enough ;-)
We spent two hours eating overpriced isaw, listening to aspiring rock bands, criticizing their voices, and talking about random things. R20 Lifestyle Hub, although not as bongacious as Noel Bazaar nor as popular as Banchetto / Mercato Centrale / Mezza Norte, is a good alternative for people who just want a relaxed venue to drink a couple of bottles of beer and chat the night away with good friends :)
