MANILA, Philippines — It’s been said every challenge has its corresponding opportunity. Every day is a blank page—a fresh start. As 2021 unfolds, Ayala Malls invites everyone to keep amazing going by showing gratitude and building habits to start each day with an expression of appreciation.
For the whole month of February, Ayala Malls lined up online and in-mall activities designed to encourage everyone to contemplate and shift perspectives on everyday difficulties.
The Gratitude Wall in Ayala Malls welcomes everyone to express their love, care, and appreciation for those that have made every single second worthwhile despite all kinds of circumstances. The Gratitude Wall gives mall-goers freedom to say what they have to say that would enliven their own spirits and uplift others who see it.
Sending gifts is another way to show gratitude. A.N.A. (Ayala Malls Neighborhood Assistant) makes store purchases and delivery as easy as 1-2-3-4. First, customers can connect with an A.N.A. personal shopper through their preferred Ayala Malls Facebook page or Viber Group. Second, fill out a mall ordering form (this is where customers can specify the items they’d like to purchase for a loved one, as well as provide other necessary information). Third, settle the payment. Fourth, wait for the delivery. For those who prefer to send gifts by themselves, customers can also take advantage of the DriveBuy pick-up service at Ayala Malls. Just purchase the item via A.N.A. first then pass by the DriveBuy stop for pick up.
Weekly habits of gratitude
To help build habits of gratitude, Ayala Malls also hosts weekly initiatives to encourage the young and old to be mindful, to be thankful, and to be thoughtful.
Mindful Mondays is all about reflection. It’s about remembering those who made an impact and helped others get through life’s ups and downs. It’s about appreciating everyday heroes like dads, moms, friends, mentors, and even pets. Every week, a new question will appear on Ayala Malls social media pages as a guide on what to be thankful about for the day.
Thank You Tuesdays is a weekly online challenge to tag a friend (or friends) whose presence has been a blessing in more ways than one. From staying up late to listen to rants, to series binging together, every week presents a new reason to thank a special-someone and make them smile.
Thoughtful Thursdays is another word for thoughtful surprises! Ayala Malls will surprise mall-goers every week with a treat for two from participating food and retail stores including TGIFriday’s, Fatfook, Brooklyn New York, YiFang, Mad Mark’s, Auntie Anne’s, Macao Imperial, Caramia, Musashi Maru, Adidas, World Balance, Cris Sports, ResToeRun, Bratpack, Penshoppe, Gourdo’s, Lock & Lock, Nature Republic, and Happy Skin. Now that’s one sweet reason to celebrate friendships and relationships at the country’s top lifestyle mall!
With all that has come and gone, as well as those that have stayed, Ayala Malls encourages everyone to bid them all “thanks a bunch!” Without challenges, there’s no growth; without joy, there’s no hope. From the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, there’s always something to be grateful for.
