Greenbelt 5 Attempted Robbery

This photo was taken during the early days of Greenbelt 5. I think this spot is near the Rolex shop, which has yet to open that time.

The Greenbelt 5 attempted robbery yesterday was a brazen act and a real shocker. Just like the Glorietta  2 incident, my family or I could have been nearby or right at the spot where the unfortunate event took place.

According to the news, six armed men dressed in bomb-squad uniforms went to the Rolex shop and attempted to rob it. The investigation is ongoing.

Our observation is that the spot of Rolex shop is at the middle and a good walking, or even running distance, from the exits. The robbers must have really been quick to be able to leave the place and escape the authorities.

The incident shook me. The place is close to my heart because I am there almost every day of the week!

Collezione C2 Opens in Greenbelt 5

Yes, Collezione C2, the now popular store that carries the My Pilipinas Series, has opened in Greenbelt 5. The store got the public’s attention with the My Pilipinas t-shirts. Now the store has a bigger clothing collection. The My Pilipinas Series now includes hoodies, shorts, dresses, knitted blouses, and collared– and non-collared shirts.

Wizheart and I had our usual Friday date earlier and went strolling Greenbelt 5 while deciding where to dine. We chanced upon Collezione C2 and checked it out. Look who I saw there, too? Yes, the bubbly and uber friendly IC Mendoza!

Getting there:
Collezione C2 is at the 2nd level of Greenbelt 5. It’s on the side that is nearer Greenbelt 1.

By the way, Collezione C2 now has two outlets in Ayala Center-Makati. The other store is in Glorietta 3.

Royce Chocolate Mallows

A very good friend from Dubai gifted me with a box of Royce Chocolate Mallows last week. I like the choco mallows because they are not too sweet. The sweet mallows are covered with dark chocolate. So the bitter and sweet taste play in your palate really well.

A combination of bitter and sweet is my favorite actually.

Royce chocolates are available at the ground level of Greenbelt 5.
