Things To Do This Father’s Day Weekend


A wiseman once said, “A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.” And indeed, it’s that time of year once again, that special day where we show our love and affection for our dads.

It’s Father’s Day weekend–another three-day weekend with the Eid al-Fitr non-working holiday!

Yes, there’s so much fun to be had because Makati, the City That Makes It All Happen, has a lot of events and promos lined up for you. So spend the weekend in the city with Daddy Dearest and have a grand time in Makati‘s many restaurants, hotels, and malls!

What are you waiting for? Check these out, folks…
