Driving around or to a new destination does not only reduce stress but also boosts one’s creativity, promotes positive vibes and happiness, and introduces us to new experiences. 

Manila traffic could sometimes be dreadful, but SM Megamall‘s newest attraction could help ease that burden. Say goodbye to boring EDSA driving when you see SM Megamall’s 3D Whale Shark LED display, which motorists could enjoy at 6 PM daily. 

The friendly “gentle giant” crashing out of the mall’s high-definition LED billboard is the “upgraded and extended” version of the famous 3D “Butanding” attraction. But this time, he is back swimming with his fish friends, making motorists’ view more entertaining. 

This immersive display showcases Filipino digital artists’ global creativity and keeps us up to date with innovative countries showcasing the same public attractions. 


There is nothing wrong with feeling bored sometimes, as Robert M. Pirsig once said: “Boredom always precedes a period of great creativity.” 

So whether you are a tourist or a local, you would surely not run out of things to do around Metro Manila. All you have to do is simply explore and be creative!
