THE PRINCESS IN ME Royal Christmas Celebration Grand Launch

SM Supermalls, the country's first and largest chain of shopping centers, rings in the holiday season with its biggest, grandest, and best celebration yet. Since 1985, SM Supermalls have been some of the Philippines' favorite shopping, dining, and leisure centers, where friends and family come together to share and create memories that last a lifetime. This year, from November 7, 2014, the company unveils its most exciting Christmas extravaganza yet. 

"Every little girl's dream is to be a princess"

I got to live that dream when I attended the Royal Christmas Celebration in the City at SM City North Edsa. They created a magical world for the young ones and young at heart (like me) with a grand royal ball entitled "The Princess in Me."

Held in partnership with the iconic toy brand Barbie
I enjoyed looking at the rare and unique dolls that were on display at the Barbie Collectors Hall. It showcases Barbie's gorgeous looks and transformation from past to present. 

Cute little princess were given a stub upon registration and was treated like true royalties. They were pampered with fun activities like Glitter Tattoo, Hair Salon, Face Painting and Nail Salon at the Holiday Barbie Lounge.

Everyone was also treated with pink, pretty and yummy cupcakes and cookies. 

I had my picture taken in the Barbie Box Photo Booth.

I felt like I was a part of the royal family when I sat on the Royal Throne
I also got to meet Prince Charming and try out Cinderella's glass slippers.  

"My Foot is too Big for this Glass slipper."

The event was hosted by Raymond Gutierrez and Denise Laurel

Kids from Child Haus were also given an early Christmas present during the gift giving with Barbie. 
Child Haus is a temporary shelter for patients with cancer and other diseases who come to Manila for treatment but have no place to stay.
 The Child Haus permanent home was donated by SM Prime Holdings President Hans Sy. 

More than just a destination for some of the country's best shopping, dining and leisure options, SM Supermalls will also help visitors share in the spirit of giving with its newest initiative, the SM Cares Bears of JOY
Available across all SM Supermalls, you can purchase a pair of the SM Care Bears for only Php200. You get to keep one bear while the other will be donated to any one of the specially chosen charities and beneficiaries unique to each SM Supermalls location.  

Also, get a chance to win exciting prizes every week when you share photos of the malls, events and activities so don't forget to use the tag #MerrySMChristmas on social media. 

Witness a majestic musical lights show of the Princess Tree made from pretty white gowns every 30 minutes from 11 am to 8pm at the block from November 7 to January 4.
The Grand Launch is only the first of the many festivities to come. Shoppers and guests are encouraged to take part in the wide variety of events, activities, and promotions set to be held at each of the SM Supermalls locations.
