The littlest sister and I had been planning to visit Venice Piazza on McKinley Hill in Taguig City since last week, and so when we finally found a good time to discover a new place, we pushed through with our plans. Suffice to say that the place was virtually empty at 8:00 in the evening on a Sunday while everywhere else was overflowing with human traffic.

The place is lovely…but where is everyone?

I’m not sure if this tower has any commercial purpose at all, but if you are having a hard time locating the place, it serves as some guide of sorts because you can spot it from afar.

Maybe in a year or two, Venice Piazza will become another cool new happening place, much like when Eastwood or The Fort were starting. There are a number of housing complexes and BPO office buildings around the place, so I guess Venice Piazza’s target market is composed of BPO yuppies, expats, and those who’ve managed to escape Makati’s congestion. In this photo: tiny sis and her former employer’s building.

Somewhere in the back is a little nook called Sol Gelato. Theirs is not the best ice cream in town, but being the only ice cream parlour in a far-flung mall, Sol Gelato will do.
