You should definitely not drink tap water. Even though there are claims that the tap water is okay - at least during the dry season - it is definitely not worth the risk of getting infected with bacteria and other harmful organisms. The same goes for using tap water for boiling it e.g. for pasta or tea. Clean, drinkable water is inexpensive. We strongly suggest that tap water be used solely for washing and bathing purposes.
Urbanites and Megacitizens alike are anticipating the completion of Century City in Makati. It's a mixed-use development envisioned to have four luxury condominium buildings a medical center, and an upscale mall. One residential tower, the tallest in the Philippines, is already up. The mall has also been launched, housing local and international brands and a diverse mix of restaurants.
Going to the Mall or 'malling' is a favorite activity on weekends and holidays, for families and couples or for anyone who just wants to grab a quick bite. There are a lot of malls which have a lot to offer. If you are looking for activities for a night out, be warned: some of them close early, around 9 pm. This excludes all the bars outside the mall itself and the cinemas, which let you in until the last show starts, which is usually around 10 or 11 pm. If you stick to the opening times of the malls, there is still a lot to do. You can go shopping (what malls are actually made for), watch a new blockbuster movie with your darling, have dinner in the busy but cheap food court or in a more fancy restaurant, play with your children at the playground, or compete in arcade games/ pool/ online games with your friends.
