Surviving four years of a seemingly endless stream of assignments, exams, reports and projects is definitely a feat. Now that you’re finally free from all those, you deserve more than just applause. Here are 5 ways to celebrate your achievement:
- Go shopping
If retail therapy was your stress reliever after school, then celebratory shopping is a clear choice. While opting for expensive brands may seem like a great idea, spending your cash on more affordable buys is a better option since you are yet to earn your own keep. Drop by the Grad Fair at the West Lobby of Parkmall, happening until March 20, for apparels and accessories perfect for your first job interview or a casual day-out with friends. Don’t fret if you miss the Grad Fair though because there are plenty of great finds at Dazzle and Pair Couture, Lboutique Showroom, Ryuko Fashion Line and Nick Automatic.
- Upgrade your gadget
For tech-savvy graduates, there’s indeed no better reward than a new gadget to play with. But even if you’re not that keen on getting a new smartphone, you will need a reliable companion as you enter the professional world. For coveted tech selections at pocket-friendly prices, visit Aerophone, Nutech, Samsung and Jezz Gadgets at the Parkmall TechAlley.
- Dine out with the fambam and barkada
A celebration is never complete without a feast. Save the household from the hassle of preparing different dishes by opting to dine out. Bring the entire family and barkada to a place with a wide variety of dishes and a laid-back ambiance for a more memorable celebration. Parkmall’s Alfresco dining strip, the largest in Cebu, offers unique and delectable eats from Cebu’s Original Lechon Belly, Burrow Lounge, Da Vinci’s Pizza, Hukad sa Golden Cowrie, Tsiboom and many more! Plus they offer discounts and packages for fresh grads – now that’s definitely a bonus!
- Go on an adventure
After years of major brain activity, it’s time to unwind. What better way to get back your days of youth than taking a trip with friends or family (or both). For the thrill-seekers, book your adventure at Danasan Eco Adventure Park by visiting their office in Parkmall. If you’re a beach bum or explorer, plan your escapade and book your next destination at Hemisphere Travel and Tours also in Parkmall for a hassle-free get-away.
- Pamper yourself
Whether your idea of pampering is spending the afternoon at the spa or doing a long-forgotten hobby, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity to spoil yourself before a new wave of responsibilities hits you. Have your well-deserved R&R at Shui Wellness Hilot, Nuat Thai Foot and Body Massage, Beauty Hall Spa and Lounge and Seon Beauty Land. For your hobby-related needs, visit Hobby Extreme Hub, Cycle Logic and OZ Racing.
However you want to celebrate your new-found freedom, you’re bound to find something to enjoy at Parkmall.
