Shopping malls are a usual destination friends go to in order to bond and build their respective relationships. Whether you’re a middle aged professional who’s looking to reconnect with friends from your younger years or a young student who wants to just take a break from school, the mall is the best place to hang out and chill with the barkada.
It makes sense because it’s practically a comfortable place to be in. Strewn with different products people might like, its air conditioned halls provide not only an optimal place to talk with your associates, but a place you can relax in. Apart from the actual physical structure of the mall itself, there’s also the fact that there are so many activities to do while inside it.
Different groups of people share different sorts of activities and, when it comes to hanging out as friends, the mall offers a myriad of that. Here are a few fun things you can do with your barkada while in a shopping mall.
Have A Scrumptious Meal Together
Filipinos have a propensity of inviting people over for food and drink. This is because eating is considered a social activity. This is when members of a family get to spend time together and find out what’s going on with each others’ lives through conversation. The same can be said when it comes to friends. Whether it’s an oily dish or an ice cold drink, eating together helps grease the cogs of camaraderie and helps people open up to each other.
Paseo Outlets’ has a slew of restaurants you can choose from to bond with your friends. If you and the squad are fans of fast food to help you relive memories of when you were in college, you can visit timeless classics. Jollibee, Kenny Rogers Roasters, Pancake House, Shakey’s, Yellow Cab and Burger King are some of these restaurants you can visit. If you’re looking for a more oriental meal, you can visit Umenoya, Samgyupsalamat, Matgalne, Cafe Breton, Pablo’s Barbacoa, Amare La Cucina and Bonchon. If you’re a fan of good ol’ Filipino Food, you can have lunch or dinner in Kanin Club and Razon’s.
The best thing about Paseo Outlets is that almost all of its dining establishments have an al fresco option. In a time where COVID-19 is still being handled, having the option to eat in an area that’s well-ventilated and safe.
If you’re feeling down and tired after a long week’s work or just in general, you have two options with which to handle it apart from resting. Your first option is to practice self-care, go to a salon or a spa to help relax yourself. Your second option is to call a friend and talk about life in general, vent out on each other about both issues at work and in relationships and the like.
Alternatively, you could do the same and hang out with friends while taking care of yourself. Getting your nails and hair done with friends is the perfect way to relax while knowing that you have a friend by your side. Having your knots untied by a masseuse with companions is a chill way to both bond with them and de-stress.
Apart from taxation and change, another thing that you can consider constant in this world is the existence of chores. Whether it’s taking care of the laundry or paying bills, so long as you have a house to live in, there will always be a myriad of chores that you need to handle on a regular basis. Most of the time, it’s pretty mundane and more of a hassle, but given the right company, it could be an enjoyable endeavor.
If you have household chores that you need to handle as an adult, chances are your friends have them too. In this fast-paced world that demands time, being able to multitask is a skill most adults train themselves in from a young age. An example of multitasking would be doing your household chores while hanging out with your friends (who may or may not have household chores).
A long conversation about life and work is great while you handle your laundry matters. Being able to catch up while you pay your bills would be awesome too.
Attend Special Weekend Events
Of course, sometimes as adults the only time you can get a chance to hang out with friends is during the weekends. Occasionally, shopping malls have weekend events that you can partake in and having friends around makes it more entertaining.
Sometimes, these events are hobby-related and can be for niche audiences. Something that you and your friends might have an interest for. But most of the time, these events can be for anyone and just being around familiar faces can give you a fun time.
Do Some Window Shopping
Alternatively, you can do something that most people do in shopping malls: window shop. Being able to do so with friends allows you to not only indulge in your shopping cravings, but also gives you the opportunity to bond with them.
If you normally have a hard time choosing between dresses or clothes, having a friend tell which looks better on you would be very helpful. Of course, you can do the same for them and compliment your friends on how good they would look on either choice.
If you’re shopping for appliances, having a friend recommend and choose which brand is better for purchase would be helpful. It also helps to have someone load that equipment into your car and unload it into your home.
At the end of the day, the fun comes from you and your friends. Regardless of the activities you engage in and where you have them, being around your companions can help uplift your spirit and prepare you for another work week.
