Gunfire and granade robbery in Robinson Galleria in Ortigas, Manila, Philippines.

This morning they were shooting in Robinson’s Galleria in Ortigas, by ADB Avenue. They were trying to commit a robbery.

4 people in yellow green uniforms started shooting at the guards and back. And even a grenade exploded inside. All this was inside the mall, by the food court, where more people are.

I go to that mall! My cute cousin and friends eat there everyday! That’s beside the Repertory Philippines’ office!

How can we feel secure in this city with thing like this happen?

The security in every mall look inside our bags, touch us and even scan us with their machines. But they didn’t find about four people who entered fully armed with guns and grenades. OMG.

I’m sure in the next few days it’s gonna be extra safe to enter any mall because security will be doubled, but after a while it will be normal again.

I’m sure Robinson’s will lose a lot of clients because of this. I’m sure even other malls will see it drop a little in the next days, but will go up soon again.

It’s more fun in The Philippines, I agree. But the campaign of the government should be towards the security first. Coz I spoke with many foreigners about tourism here and the main thing preventing them is the security in the streets.

I told them it’s ok inside the malls…
