Spend leftover holiday money
What’s that? You still got a couple wads of unused money? Holiday shopping didn’t finish it off? Well, thank God for SM! From January 2 to 15, SM Megamall and the SM Mall of Asia will be having a huge-ass sale. It's the end of season sale, as they call it, and it’s just about the right place for anyone who wants to start the year right by spending...right. Spending right, yes: discounts go up to 70% on great selections. Go and do what must be done: finish off that wallet of yours!

Watch a play
Pointing out differences between men and women has always been a pretty funny thing to talk about. And it is what you’ll see and laugh about in the one-man comedy Defending The Caveman, starring Joel Trinidad. The show is said to be the longest running of its kind in Broadway history, and has been seen by over 8 million people across the globe, near all of them still splitting sides by the time the curtains close. The show is directed by Michael Williams and Cathy Azanza-Dy, and will be staged at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at the RCBC Plaza on January 6, and 13, 8 PM, and January 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 330 and 8 PM.
Tickets are at Php1,200 for orchestra center, Php1,000 for orchestra side and loge, and Php500 for balcony.
