Subic's Fake Mall
Remember me? I'm the guy who hates malls. Except for the new movie theaters which are way more comfortable than Times Square Cinema nothing about this dump is attractive. The Olongapo SM has a fake Ace Hardware store. It has a fake Watson Drug store. Both are miniature teasers about the size of a residential kitchens. Everything is reduced. They're like advertisements for the real thing in Pampanga. It even has a fake Starbucks in the Red Bucks coffee wagon with a ripped off logo. WTF. SM was recently instrumental in cleaning out and closing the bootleg DVD's across the street from them at Green Hills. Not because they worried about artist royalties but because they worried about sales at their own sad sack Odyssey store. And Oh boy....a Jollibee, a KFC, a Greenwich, a Chow King, an Inasal, a Smart, and a Globe store. Golly gee what will they think up next? How about a 7-11? What is wrong with a French Bakery or maybe even a SBarros? Please just give us residents something that we don't already have in Olongapo and SBMA. You have to pay to park at a crummy fake mall where the escalators don't even work. What a sick joke this abortion is.
