I'm so sick of PBCom. It's so boring. We need a new tallest building.

^ that is Rufino Tower. It was the tallest in the Philippines before Petron Megaplaza and PBcom were built.
It is however, the tallest glass & steel building in the Philippines.

The facade is nice. I like how they used glass, stone, and metal. And even if it does look boring, you have to admit that PBCom bulks up Makati's skyline.

I think anyone can eat in these food courts. When I went home in 2003, my friends and I were able to eat at Enterprise's food court.
