If musicals aren’t your thing, how about heading over to the PAGCOR Airport Casino to watch the amazing Wanders show? It’s two hours of music and amazing acrobatic stunts. Prices may be too expensivefor some (starting at Php1,200, all the way up to Php3,000), but considering what the performers do for a living, it is well worth it. Here’s a preview of what you can expect from the Wanders show:
Tickets are available through Ticketworld. The show runs every Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays until December 29.

Still, if that’s not your thing (or if the price is too steep), how about heading over to the Mall of Asia to view the Shroud of Turin exhibit?
A centuries-old linen cloth bearing the image of a crucified man, the Shroud of Turin has been revered for hundreds of years as the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. Locked away in a cathedral in Turin, Italy, the Shroud is only displayed three or four times a century, drawing pilgrims from all over the world to witness its exposition.
Although the next official exposition of the Shroud is slated in 2025, Filipinos do not have to wait for a couple more decades nor travel thousands of miles to see it. For the first time in the Philippines, and the first time in Asia, Shroud Exhibits International, Inc. presents the Philippine Exhibition of The Mystery of the Shroud of Turin.
After enlightening New Zealand, the exhibit’s journey continues in the Philippines–the only predominantly Christian nation in Southeast Asia–as the country plays host to this very special exhibit that would allow visitors to journey with the Shroud’s history, discover the facts and myths behind the most studied archaeological artifact of all time, and unravel the mystery behind this treasured piece.
The Philippine Exhibition of The Mystery of the Shroud of Turin opened on July 20 at SM City-Pampanga. It is now on exhibit at the SM Mall of Asia until Dec. 9. From here, it will travel to SM Davao on Jan. 18 to Feb. 3, 2008; and SM City Cebu on April 4-27, 2008. Ticket for the exhibit is priced at Php250, with discounts for senior citizens and groups of 50 and above.
