A church outside the mall of asia

This weekend we had a chance to visit the Mall of Asia.  Holy Crap.  That place is huge.  I believe it took us about 2 hours to go from one side of the mall to the other stopping only occassionally.  This mall has everything in it that you could ever imagine including an ice skating rink that pours down snow.  The stores were ok, mainly everything you would see in any magazine.  The trip on the way is kind of what caught my eye.  Seeing the vast differences in the way that people live.  On one street we drove down there were very large gated houses surrounded by armed guards, the very next street would be either middle class or extreme poverty.  On the way driving down the highway we passed by open fields with more or less shanty villages of farm workers.

So anyway.  We got to the mall walked around for 2 hours and then went out for dinner at a very nice Italian Restaraunt in a different part of the town.  It was an area of all restaraunts all of them very nice.  I need to update the review section at some point I am sure.  So that is it for now, back to work.  Hopefully I'll have time later to write some more.
