Gigantic ‘Little Drummer Boy’ thumps SM City Clark

Merry ChriSMs all the way! This is the warmest message the SM City Clark family can give to all the mall lovers for the merriest season as it also rocks everyone with the grand display of the  ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ at the Event Centre this November 06, 2010.

A mechanical doll, which is synonymous to the poor but giving boy from the classic carol ‘The Little Drum Boy’, it measures up to 23 feet, making it the center stage for this year’s Christmas motif for SM City Clark. Starting on Saturday, everyone can now fulfill a true blue Christmas playground as the ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ arrives. This should be more fun with glittering lights that call for the yuletide as well as different renditions of famous Christmas tunes.

Every year, SM City Clark has been consistent in transforming its place with Christmas fantasy themes that all children—and children at heart, would love. From the Giant Santa Clause, Giant Gingerbread House and last year’s Giant Snow Men, now comes another enormous version called The Giant Drummer Boy.

Popularly came from a Christmas song by the pianist Katherine Davis, ‘The Little Drum Boy’ tells about a penniless boy who delighted both the Holy Mother and baby Jesus by his playful and giving drumbeats. A classic carol, no childhood can ever forget that famous ‘rum pum pum pum’ hum which, for a record, actually includes 21 repeats from the entire lyrics!

‘The Little Drum Boy’ (1941) from that on has become a surefire hit not only from happy folks excited of Christmas but also to famous musicians with versions from fashion icon Marlene Dietrich, rock star David Bowie, to the cute and full of lesson program called Trapp Family Singer. In fact, even Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey had their own. Who could not love the ‘The Little Drum Boy’?

The song also reminds us that the best gift for the greatest Birthday Celebrant of all mankind is sheer charity, no matter how small. And what better way if one can have something to spend this Christmas than a strolling of fun with family and friends at SM City Clark to meet the huge ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ one can ever see!

But the fun never stops as tons of exciting events will surely delight our valued shoppers. The Pyromusical show will illuminate the sky all Saturdays of December, 8 PM at the Meeting Place. Be thrilled as Santa Clause will be meeting kids, listening to wishes and posing for pictures all Saturdays and Sundays of December at Cyberzone!

Merry ChriSMs all the way!

Care for Our Future: Celebrate Children’s Month

In recognition of our most valued and youngest member of the society, SM City Clark through their Program on Youth and Children’s Welfare, celebrated National Children’s Month last October 27, 2010 with various “child-friendly” campaigns, simultaneously, with 40 SM malls nationwide.

“With more than 3 million customers going to our malls daily, and approximately 1.4 million being children, we have committed to help future generations reach their full potential by initiating programs that promote an environment of learning, activities  which instill home-grown values and embrace education, and events which foster talent as well as children’s rights “SM is now beyond shopping, entertainment, and leisure.  It is now about taking affirmative action in our social responsibilities. It is about taking initiatives, in being instrumental, in caring for children, the best way we can. 

And truly, it will take more than just a “City” to achieve that goal.  So together with parents, tenant-partners, various government institutions and NGOs, SM City Clark prepared a month long calendar of kid’s activities which included Global Handwashing Day (Oct.15), wherein thousands of children, simultaneously washed their hands properly, while learning about the importance of basic hygiene and health care. 

SM Supermalls also invited thousands of students to watch environmental films (for free) and participate in a Green Film Festival (every 3rd  Monday and Tuesday of the month), as they encourage children to be responsible stewards of the environment.

The United Nations Parade last Oct.24 gathered thousands of kids in different shapes and sizes, representing 192 U.N. member countries, as they went around the mall in friendly competition, for the best national costume.

And as part of the culminating activity, The Mall Management and staff, together with SM Foundation and various partners, will treat more than 7,000 orphans and street children across all SM Malls for a day of fun and learning. But prior to the activity, the staff were already trained to handle “special” children, while facilities have been enhanced to ensure that the mall is safe and comfortable enough to accommodate tiny hands and feet, wherever they go.

For those who wish to extend assistance to less privileged children,  every purchase of one (1) SM Supermalls bottled water at the Foodcourt or any SM food outlet will allow you to support two (2) children in Capiz, through UNICEF and SM Cares program by SM Prime Holdings.

So as we celebrate children’s month this October, let us safeguard our future.  Help care for children.

Make no mistake about it: a wild African setting that reminds us of safari comes in a appetitive place called Congo Grille. The cuisine, however, are unmistakenably Filipino with familiar dishes like sinigang na ulo ng salmon sa miso, nilagang bulalo, halaan soup soothing enough for any type of events and season. But Congo Grille’s hottest plates can also be found on the grilled foods—rich ‘umami’ taste sizzling for both red and white meat dishes like tuna belly, pork barbecue, inihaw na liempo and barbecue chicken.</div>

Local culinary taste is still apparent and Kapampangans will be happy to note that Congo Grille features the culinary capital’s ‘gem’ in the form of ‘sisig’. In fact, Congo Grille has been tagged as ‘The Sisig King’ after it bested all restaurants on a ‘sisig’ feat in Pampanga. Because of this, Congo Grille as well celebrates the good food known to Kapampangans showing through in their menu, chicken ‘sisig’ and notably, a Kapampangan ‘sisig’. To date, Congo Grille is available on one of  Pampanga’s top malls— SM City Clark!

Started on 1999, Congo Grille already has its fast-paced growth by starting to franchise all over in Metro Manila and even on the nearby provinces like Nueva Ecija and Pampanga. Carla Villanueva, Marketing Manager of Congo Grille said, “And even as we expand via franchising, we are emplacing systems that will ensure that the standards of service that we have built over the years will be maintained in all new franchised restaurants.”

On December this year, Congo Grille will open its latest provincial franchise in Cabanatuan City. Its first franchise however is located in Metro Manila on 2009 at Araneta Center. Overseas are also seen on the marketing plan and no other exciting place to cater the Philippine taste bud other than the United States.

Congo Grille, with its refreshing interior, also boast of its good service, devoted to giving out the equally good food. And because it never looks intimidating, customers come in different forms—family, friends, or even couple. Both young and old can also dine in since the foods are fits for anyone. A mascot is also ready to fun with the young ones and young at heart—a comedic ape in safari outfit.

Congo Grille also participates on charity works which is a great way for corporate and civic responsibility. And since they are into food industry, most of their programs are related to feeding to connect with other groups determined to help children in Valenzuela and Quezon City. Collectibles and toys were also included.
