These guest speakers are predominantly Businesses and Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) in their own fields who will try to persuade clients and customers to go back to the mall and give themselves and their pets the pampering they all deserve after the long lockdown period. #NowIsAGoodTime To Pamper Yourself and Your Pets is also a way to help retail business proprietors in driving their enterprises up despite this pandemic crisis. This advocacy will likewise invite customers to have their “me-time” at the mall (and give themselves rewards such as facial care, skin and hair treatments, and more) without them worrying for their health and safety because of the in-store sanitation protocols inside any of the pet-friendly Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

And because going on vacations is still a far-fetched idea at the moment, indulging in Megaworld Lifestyle Malls’ myriad self-care options like facial spa, skin clinic and salons, gyms where you can sweat the toxins out while toning your body, and stores dedicated to pets and their needs is a surefire way to recharge—your own little way of supporting the country as it painstakingly trying to get the economy back on track.
Guest speakers of #NowIsAGoodTime To Pamper Yourself and Your Pets include Alexandra Dayrit, Director for Business Development of Gold’s Gym Philippines; Haydee Chua, owner and president of Dogs in the City, a one-stop-shop store for all pet needs, and Abby Borja, Marketing Director of R2 Group of Companies including Vivere Salon and Nailaholics.
Aside from discussing the crucial role self-pampering plays, especially during these trying times, the panel will also tackle the need for self-care, keeping in shape, and how to spoil your fur babies withal the grooming, shopping, and exploring inside and outside of all Megaworld Lifestyle Malls while ensuring safe personal spaces and experiences through all brands’ vigilance and innovative efforts.
#NowIsAGoodTime To Pamper Yourself and Your Pets is the third and final series of webinars that highlight the need of every individual for a personal pampering-on-purpose to lift their spirits, balance their lives, emotionally and mentally, amidst this harsh circumstance brought about by the Covid crisis. Just like the two other episodes, this last one will take audiences deeper into how beauty and wellness, as well as pet care brands, while being ensured that all stores have innovated their brand of service, utilized revolutionary strategies in order to adapt and embrace the challenging times, in ways that will benefit all customers.
Tefel Pesigan-Valentino, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls’ Vice President and Head of Marketing and Business Development, and the panel’s prime lead will extensively discuss how their malls (such as Eastwood Mall, Venice Grand Canal at McKinley Hill, Forbes Town, Newport Mall at Resorts World Manila, Uptown Mall, Southwoods Mall and Lucky Chinatown in Binondo) have collaborated with Safeguard, UV Care, and The Medical City to ensure quality sanitation and safety efforts. The UV Care, a certified brand trusted for its UV-sterilization, provided the malls with a more thorough and intensified disinfection, focusing on all facilities and high touchpoint areas.
Tefel will also talk about their partnership with The Medical City, one of the country’s most trusted healthcare institutions, to guarantee an all-encompassing brand of safety that starts with its employees and extends to its valued customers. Megaworld Lifestyle Malls and this chief medical network were able to come up with comprehensive mall sanitation protocols that are supported by the medical industry insights and standards including hygiene, physical distancing, temperature check, and even environment cleaning including the malls’ waste disposal efforts.
The alliance with Safeguard, a globally trusted brand when it comes to hygiene, particularly handwashing, has encouraged a culture of consistent and proper handwashing among mall and store employees and valued customers. Because of the partnership, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls has established Safeguard Stations at all restrooms across its lifestyle malls in the country. These Safeguard Stations contains Safeguard liquid antibacterial hand soaps to help remove germs and viruses. There are posters about proper handwashing techniques in restrooms that provide a visual guide of how to wash hands correctly.
All these measures have been in place since Megaworld Lifestyle Malls reopened in May, and they have been educating and reminding the mall-goers that wearing face masks and face shield, proper physical distancing, and handwashing are the best measures that will complement their mall’s implementation of intensified sanitation and disinfection efforts.
For your fido and feline that may have gotten used to hanging out in the mall, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls has an abundance of al fresco dining options. Megaworld Lifestyle Malls are the first-ever pet-friendly malls in the country, allowing dogs and cats to explore the malls together with their fur-parents. Recently, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls has launched a Digital Pet Pass, a contactless passport-like permit that allows pet parents to enter the malls with their fur babies in tow. All they have to do is to scan the QR code at the concierge or through their social media, and fill out the requested information, upload a photo of their pets with a copy of vaccination records. The Digital Pet Pass on their mobile phones can be presented upon entry to any Megaworld Lifestyle Malls nationwide.
