A bear treat for Christmas

Real estate giant Megaworld Corp. is spreading the holiday cheer with a cute, cuddly-looking Christmas teddy bear perched atop its new headquarters in Fort Bonifacio.

Now gracing the skyline of this business district in Taguig is a 50-foot tall, 70-foot wide Christmas bear sporting a Santa hat—an installation on the rooftop of the Alliance Global Tower that is reportedly the largest of its kind. It is said to be even visible when viewed from Makati, Ortigas, and C5.


This massive Christmas installation was unveiled earlier this month by tycoon Dr. Andrew Tan; Kevin L. Tan, senior vice president and head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls; and Lourdes Gutierrez-Alfonso, chief operating officer of Megaworld.

Complementing the ceremonial lighting was the launch of adorable, “dancing” bears that are sure to add to the already festive, hearty atmosphere inside the Uptown Mall Atrium.


Designed to evoke nostalgia and bring back the giddiness of the kid in everyone, the huge and fluffy ‘Uptown Christmas Bears’ will be with everyone during the Christmas season to make your holidays a tad merrier.

A must see at the Uptown Mall is the 32-foot white Christmas tree that houses 10 huge white bears.

There are also two hanging bears on a wreath, making this a “White Christmas that feels a lot like home.”

It is, however, the accompanying 17 animatronic bears in varying colors and sizes on the platform that made the area even more splendid. Scattered along the hallways are nine gift-bearing bears all ready to make that picture Instagram-worthy.
