Indoor Badminton and Food Choices: Everything's Here at SM Cherry Antipolo



The rainy season has officially started. Staying physically active can be challenging and most of us are looking for indoor activities to keep us fit. Good news for Antipole├▒os and those living nearby! SM Cherry Antipolo opens the first-ever indoor badminton courts. It is also the first and only SM Supermall to have this facility.

The SM Cherry Antipolo has 7 Badminton Courts available from Monday to Sunday at 7am to 10pm.  Currently, there is a Play-All-You-Can promo. The rate is 175 Pesos per person  from 7am to 5pm. Peak hours rate is at 375 Pesos per hour from 5pm to 10pm. 

If you wish to take badminton lessons, you can get in touch with Coach Emmanne Balaguer Julleza at 0915-362-8775. Walk-ins are allowed but most of the time the courts are occupied. It is advisable to reserve a time slot in advance.

After burning some calories... let's replenish it! hahaha

Well, I love food. I don't feel guilty eating after sweating out. Here are some of the restaurants you can go with your family and friends after a good game of badminton.

Milk tea has become a favorite beverage of Filipinos. Macao Imperial Tea is one of the popular milk tea brands perfect for cooling down. I have been invited to numerous branch openings and new flavor launches of Macao Imperial Tea since it arrived in the Philippines in 2017. If haven't tried Macao Imperial Tea yet, their bestsellers are Cream Cheese Oreo Milk Tea and the Cheesecake and Pearl Milk Tea.

But my favorite is the Cheesecake Taro, Mango Yakult, and the Sodas. I also love their Tea Coolers infused by Twinings especially the Strawberry Mango Tea.

The Macao Imperial Tea SM Cherry Antipolo branch is located at the Ground level. The ambiance is very comfy to just chill.

Craving for a Pinoy meal that makes you feel nostalgic of your family get togethers and Sunday lunches? Giligan's should be on top of your list. It was my first time to dine in their SM Cherry Antipolo branch but I have ordered their kare-kare countless times for delivery. 

Giligan's all-time favorites are Crunchy Pork Sisig, Kare-kare (my favorite!), Crispy Pata, and the Roast Beef with Gravy. These are reasonably priced and the serving is generous for sharing. There are also family meals good for 3-4 persons and 4-6 persons.

I found out last Saturday that they also serve Abot Kaya Meals and Super Abot Kaya Meals. This is ideal for solo diners or if you or your friends just have a craving for a specific dish. The price of Abot Kaya Meals range from 140 Pesos to 177 Pesos while the Super Abot Kaya Meals range from 92 Pesos to 105 Pesos.

Celebrating a victory? Or may be a friend wants to treat you for pizza after hours of playing badminton? Shakey's is the newest restaurant to open a branch in SM Cherry Antipolo.  If you are a Supercard holder, the PCM Supercard Meal Deal is the most sulit. 

The bundle includes your choice of any large Thin Crust All-Time Favorite or Classic Pizza, 5 pieces of Chicken N' Mojos, and a pitcher of house blend iced tea.

If you have just availed of the newClassic Supercard, you can get a free upgraded option of any large Thin Crust Pizza or a Pasta Platter. 

The PCM bundle is only 1,499 Pesos and good for 5-6 persons.

The Shakey's SM Cherry Antipolo branch is located near the main entrance of the mall. 

I've heard a lot about Koomi but it was my first time to try this natural drinking yogurt. The branch is located across Shakey's. I had two of their bestsellers: Will Ube Mine? and Avo Nice Day.

Will Ube Mine? is a yogurt drink with ube and nata. A nice add-on is the purple rice. I brought this home to my husband who was never fond of yogurt and he loved this! 

The Avo Nice Day has a subtle avocado taste. I was hoping for an overpowering avocado flavor but this was also good. I've read on the menu that this goes well with pistachio.  Other bestsellers that I will try very, very soon are You're the Berry Best (yogurt + strawberry), Mango Moo (yogurt + mango), Cookies N' Dream (yogurt + cookies), KitKat You Outta My Head (yogurt + KitKat).

This is what I really, really love! The Koomi Froyo for me is a guiltless dessert. You can choose between a pre-made froyo or you can create your own. Price starts at 129 Pesos.
