On My 30-something natal day, I explored SM Aura in Taguig City for the first time. There was so much buzz about this new mall with posh stores that made me visit it and snubbed my usual destination across this gigantic building (I still love Market! Market!).
On the fifth floor was the SM Skypark - an open area with water fountains and restaurant. We also found out that there's a chapel in this mall - The Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod. After my son had his joy playing at the grounds, I asked for directions for the chapel at the top.
In front of the water fountains at the Skypark was Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL). We walked towards CBTL and turned right. A few meters from CBTL is a restaurant called Tamarind and beside it are stairs leading to the chapel. We were with my mother so we opted to take the glass elevator instead. And in case you are wondering, there's an elevator operator in it. And the door exit is different from the one you entered. In short, the elevator has front and back doors. So make sure you turn around.
It was a Wednesday afternoon and there were a few people at the chapel. Interestingly, they have a doorman! Cool!

The chapel looked simple and serene. Outside was a small garden/park where churchgoers can marvel at the skies and thank the One above. Just be careful if you have active kids with you. Make sure they don't stand near the railings.
