Glorietta catches fire

Smoke filled the Ayala mall yesterday afternoon when the Luk Yuen Restaurant in Glorietta 2 caught fire. I was there in time to notice the smoke filling the mall and yet the shoppers seemed to be as casual as casual can get. I took a (bad) photo of the hazy looking building but you wouldn’t even notice something’s going on unless you check out the closed stores at the background. (Sorry for being a bad citizen journalist. I was supposed to be heading for an interview!)

    Oh my, that’s scary. Wasn’t the fire alarm set off or the fire department called?

    I had a similar experience at Festival Mall. My family and I were about to enter the mall when we heard the fire alarm went off. The guard seemed oblivious to it. I had to confirm if it was indeed the fire alarm. He casually said “yes ma’am, malamang ho false alarm.” I said to myself “maybe” isn’t good enough. Don’t want to risk the safety of my family so we decided to wait outside for some announcement. It was just weird how people continued to go inside the mall without a care in the world. They didn’t seem to take any heed to the fire alarm. It just gave me the impression that fire alarms are not really treated as a serious matter by many. I think this attitude should be corrected to avoid mishaps.

    …. oh yeah, as the guard foretold, it was a false alarm so we went inside after that confirmation.
