CHRISTMAS With the Stars – that was the theme of this year’s Christmas Launch at Vista Mall Iloilo.
On Nov. 17 and 18, Vista Mall opened the holiday season in the brightest way it knows – with performances from Kapamilya talents Loisa Andalio and Bamboo.
Loisa and Bamboo owned the Vista Mall Iloilo stage over the weekend, bringing the holiday hype straight to Ilonggos.
Christmas with Loisa Andalio
The Kapamilya Pop Singer, Loisa Andalio, made fans happy when she performed the songs in her first album called ‘Loisa’ on Nov. 17. Singing her new songs such as ‘Sasamahan Kita’, ‘Puppy Love’, and many more, Loisa’s fans can’t help but sing along with her.
Panay News sat down with Loisa Andalio for an exclusive interview. The pop singer shared, “Super thankful ako sa kanila (her fans). Gusto kong magpasalamat sa effort nila na pumunta dito para suportahan ako. Mga Ilonggo at Ilongga, maraming salamat. Kahit mainit sa labas, nandito sila para suportahan ako.”
Christmas with Bamboo
The Christmas Spirit was felt in a “rockstar way” as Pinoy Rock Icon and The Voice Philippines Coach, Bamboo, took the stage by storm with an hour-long all out performance on Nov. 18.
Bamboo performed the hits ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Noypi’, ‘Umagang Kay Ganda’, ‘Hinahanap Hanap Kita’, and a whole lot more.
With his gloriously soulful rockstar performance, there is no wonder why the crowd screamed, “I choose you, Coach Bamboo!”
Christmas begins at Vista Mall Iloilo
The highlight of the event was when the giant switch was brought to the stage. Bamboo, Michael Mayoga (Vista Mall Iloilo Operations Manager), and Santa Claus turned the switch on after the countdown.
What a starry night it was! After the countdown, confetti flew all over the place and the crowd was mesmerized with the surprise fireworks illuminating in the sky. The Christmas lights surrounding Vista Mall Iloilo shined golden and the whole place was filled by the joy of the holiday spirit.
Michael Mayoga told Panay News that Christmas is a totally different experience in Vista Mall Iloilo because the All Day Supermarket, AllHome, Coffee Project, and Bake My Day are present for the whole family.
He announced with such enthusiasm, “Soon, Vista Cinema will be opening maybe in December. We have six cinemas coming…I would claim that it’s the coziest VIP cinema.” He added further, “Hopefully by next quarter–first quarter, we will have series of restaurants opening soon.”
