Make someone happy today, Shangri-La Plaza lists down all the ways


While everyone is anticipating International Day of Happiness (mark your calendars for March 20), it shouldn’t stop anyone from trying to make a loved one happy every day. Shangri-La Plaza is inviting you to seize the opportunity with a list of inspired ways you can brighten someone’s day – including your own! The serotonin boost also does wonders for overall wellbeing, so it’s good to have daily doses.


Need an instant pick-me-up? Buy someone coffee or tea because workday mornings always give us some grief. Grab a cup or two of the Sumiyaki or Blue Mountain No. 1 at UCC Mentore’s new café at Shang. Whether syphon, pour over, cold brew or espresso, these top-notch brews will get the morning off to a great start.


Break bread with a bestie as good food and even better company give both of you a breather, especially on stressful days. Head out and treat your resident foodie to a cozy French-Filipino fusion brunch at Cafe Lyon or savory afternoon crepes at La Creperie. Enjoy delicious gluten-free treats at Baking Therapy – the wholesome bakery by Healthy Options and first gluten-free bakery in the Philippines also recently opened a full-fledged café at Shangri-La Plaza. Bonus: these are perfect spots for hours-long conversations, too.


Drop a handwritten thoughtful note on a dependable co-worker’s desk or send a heartfelt thank you message to your beloved sibling. Kind, sincere words hold great power and often coax a smile even when the day isn’t going exactly as we would have wanted. Extra points for creativity when you personalize your notes with elegant fountain pens and classic notepads from Analog or quirky stationery from Tie Me Up Butter Cup.


How about volunteering to run errands with a busy friend? It can be a welcome shake-up to their routine and a chance to catch up while allowing them to stay on top of their to-dos. From ticking off items at The Marketplace to shopping for more home essentials at Rustan’s Department Store, you can turn everyday tasks into a fun way to strengthen your bond. Round out a productive day with a well-deserved pamper session like getting your nails done at Nail Spa or enjoying a rejuvenating time at the luxurious Travertine Longevity & Wellness.


“Just because” gifts are the best kind because they don’t need an occasion and are great surprises for giftees. Reliable spots for quick unique finds include Healthy Options with its diverse selection of good-for-you teas and snacks and Lush for its luxurious bath bombs. Make it a clean sweep with robot vacuums from Cutting Edge and True Value – they’re cute and help you clean!  Elevate those childhood friendship bracelets with all the charms from Pandora or check out MUJI’s embroidery service to customize everything from clothes to tote bags with initials, dates, or meaningful symbols. Take note: It’s exclusively available at Shangri-La Plaza.


Catch a candle-lit concert that’s dedicated to making Mother Earth happy. Live at the Shang teams up with Viva Records for an Earth Hour music fest at the East Atrium. Up and coming artists Amiel Sol, Marielle Belleza, Michael Keith, CARLO, and Minimal Days are taking the stage on March 23, 6:30PM.


Get inspired by Shang with its thoughtfully curated and uniquely personal line-up of shops, services, and events all helping you in the pursuit of everyday happiness and spreading the same joy for life to those who matter most.
