The Fort Entertainment Complex / Bonifacio Global City Rising

The Fort was the first attraction at the BGC, (long before Serendra, High Street and the Burgos Circle.) At that time, the area was all wide fields and carabao grass. I literally saw the rise of the condominiums as I have been working at an international school for the past 15 years in the University Avenue.

Biking as well as running is a regular pastime in these areas.

Rules if you own a bike:
Bring your chain. Parking is not allowed if your bike is not chained.
Secure your bike and do not leave valuables.
Park only in bike park.
Wear your safety helmets when you ride.

Whether the sun is rising or setting, one can see urbanites exercising their right to a healthy body. In full gear or just plain shorts and tees, jogging and biking is the way to go.

Some of the best Italian restaurants and ice cream parlors reside in the vicinity like Cafe Puccini, Va Bene Pasta Deli (best pasta in town!) Trio, Jona's Noodle House, Heaven, to name a few old and new.

How about an old fashioned banana split? The good old days are back. Fast food food joints are now becoming more laid back, more elegant utensils are used, charming ambiance and the good life now has been given to the discerning public.
