It seems that leisure and pleasure are catching up to the yuppies over at Makati's Central Business District. With several dining and shopping destinations already established in the area, Glorietta 5 gives everyone more reasons to enjoy that lunch hour. The latest retail hub recently celebrated its grand opening, showcasing the brands that made the jump from Glorietta 1, as well as other homegrown stores to add some local flavor.

Spread out over three floors of fashion, electronics, and dining, the new mall champions Philippine retail with affordable wares from local stores. Shoppers can find popular fashion giants like Bench, Folded & Hung, and Plains & Prints among other emerging brands. Shoe addicts can also get their fix from of-the-moment pieces at Twinky, Janylin, and Celine. Practical and creative fashionistas are sure to frequent the area, as specialty stores like Carolina's Lace Shoppe, now bigger, and Fabric Warehouse can get them started on their own DIY projects.
