Ayala Station

The photo of Greenbelt 5 which I posted for the CDP theme day on Saturday was the last in a series of photos which I took in the Ayala Commercial Center on the evening that we watched Rep's The Fantasticks. So let's begin our tour properly at the beginning, shall we? I took the MRT from Quezon City to Makati City and this is where I got down, the Ayala Station. Buses on the ground level, trains on the upper, and lots of food stalls along the way. The cinder block of a building on the right is another mall: SM Makati.

Wow that looks like a big place. Let the tour begin. :-)

You asked me "Is that hair??" I can't figure out what you are talking about, but I'll say no because there is no hair in the picture. lol
Anyway check out today's post in my Newtown blog I explain what the Ant on Neptune really is. :-)

A good start, ready for the tour.

Very interesting. I'm thinking perhaps shopping is as big in Manila as it is in the States! Eating, too!

That is a great entrance to the station. Can't wait to see if the interior is as grand.

wow, huge indeed. Lots of great public space and activity occurring in there I am sure. Thanks for all of your comments on my site while we were away on the solar eclipse tour. We appreciate your words. I am enjoying catching up on everyone's photos. I love your woven light photo on your site. way cool. We also finally got our travel website officially launched so it is not open at www.vivalavoyage.com or it can be accessed through the link on my website. I hope things are well. Enjoy!

This is as grand as it'll get. The interior of the station is very plain.
