here's the link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_buildings_in_the_world scroll down it is on the down part ofthe page. MALL OF ASIA is on the 6th and Mega Mall is on the 12th. wow.... there are a lot of hungry and no job Filipinoes and still we have big malls. this is a shocker. it is not even a tourist spot. but as the owner of SM malls said... that this is how confident he is, seeing that our country will survive on this crisis we are facing. what can you say about that?

Well, I am pretty sure that Henry Sy and his ilk will survive the crisis. I don't know about the scores of jobless and hungry Filipinos. They will probably live through it, but the quality of their physical and mental lives is another matter. I have long avoided going to any of the SM malls especially during Christmas. All the lights, the blaring music, the glittering shining lovely things to buy, and omigosh crowds of people - they depress me even more. All that beautiful and happy scenery is untrue to the real economic situation. But anyway, Merry Christmas to you and happy mylotting!

it may depress some but some get entertained with those lights and blaring music. they forget how bad it feels to be jobless when they are inside the mall. it makes them somehow happy. for example children they are happy when you bring them top the mall and of course parents feel happy when they see their child happy. those big malls somehow brought jobs to others but not to all of course. thanks a lot for the response and merry christmas to you too.

at least malls provide not only recreation but also jobs to filipinos. but the only saddest part is, the number of malls in the philippines is bigger than the number of hospitals. Anyway, malling will always be a part of filipino's daily life whatever your status is.

Oh really? I thought that Mall of Asia is the largest here in the Philippines. Well, thanks for the information! I never have gone to SM North Edsa. It is so far from our house. But when I was still young, we used to go there because it was the only mall during that time. There was no Megamall and SM Makati yet. Henry Sy is really successful. I will ask my husband if we could visit SM North Edsa sometime.

Well I'm shocked to see that SM North EDSA is third on the list. It was not that big before but I guessed since they renovate it and expanding it it even top the Mall of Asia which I think is much bigger. Well Henry Sy is indeed one of the rich businessman in the country. Filipinos are fond of shopping even in crisis and Henry Sy knows that.
