malling is a national pastime in the P.I.

I think of this as a non-story, as Filipinos have been doing this for years. When it gets hot and gross here in Chicago, and I need to break out of my apartment, I usually head for the air-conditioned comfort of a bookstore, movie theater, or mall. Though I’ve never attended Mass at one…

Catholic masses are even held in the corridors of some malls. While the faithful sit on plastic chairs, less religious folk continue to browse the rails nearby.

Church of consumerism? I like it! Even though I probably should not.
