yup that's actually what he said, parang Galeria sa STL kaliit.

that actually does not address the fact that I stated. maliit ang sinehan. tapos ginawa na lang na "directors club" kunyare to justify it.

and of course he's going to get likes from Aura-fanbois. but I dont need validation from anyone when I state my opinion

Eh kaso Director's Club nga talaga. La-Z Boy seats. How do you expect a cinema with La-Z Boy seats to be big? Even Gateway Mall's Globe Platinum cinema, which is also a full La-Z Boy seat cinema, is small. Even the Director's Club at SM MOA is also small.

There is nothing more annoying imho than a big movie theater full of people who don't follow theater protocol/etiquette of shutting the hell up and quit the yapping and also turning off their damn phones while watching a movie. Sarap talaga kutusan yang mga pasaway na yan! Hehehe...

SM: Aura area belongs to Taguig not BCDA, therefore not depriving AFP
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/business/...cda-vs-sm-aura

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - SM Prime on Thursday said the government is wrong to claim its rentals for the 3.5 hectare property it leased from Taguig to build SM Aura. SM was reacting to yesterday's statement by Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) president Arnel Casanova that under an year 2000 executive order, proceeds from leases and joint ventures entered into by BCDA should be divided equally between BCDA and the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

In an interview on ANC's Headstart, SM Prime Holdings vice president for legal Edgar Ryan San Juan said because the property was given by the BCDA to Taguig as part of a compromise agreement, it is owned by Taguig and lease revenues should benefit the people of Taguig. "With all due respect to the AFP, it's kind of wrong to say we're depriving them of funds that should go to their modernization, kasi ang may-ari dito Taguig at ang mga makikinabang dito ay constituents ng Taguig... So yung constituents ng Taguig ang tinutulungan namin dito kasi siya yun owners, so sa coffers niya mapupunta," San Juan said.

San Juan said under the terms of the compromise agreement, BCDA cannot put restrictions on what Taguig can do with the property. "The BCDA shall not place any restrictions on the land use or zoning of the properties specified in this and the two MOAs that preceded it," he said, quoting the deed of conveyance.

San Juan insisted that SM Aura is not a "pure mall," but also has civic center components such as a chapel, government offices, convention center, trade hall, park and sports facilities. "It's not just a pure mall. If that's the misconception of the public, you wait, because it's a work in progress. The 30-storey tower isn't even open as of now. Once Taguig has its satellite offices there, you'll really see where it's going to," he said.

Asked why BCDA seems to be singling out SM, San Juan said this may be related to a court case the company filed against the government agency. "We can't say kung bakit. (But) there is an existing case between SM and BCDA on another property, in South Bonifacio. Right now, SM was able to secure a TRO against BCDA, so they can't bid it out. They own it but they're tied to certain rights connected to our unsolicited proposal for the property," he said. In January, SM Land won a temporary restraining order against the sale of the 33.1-hectare Bonifacio South Pointe property.

Nice article. For the sake of just wanting to follow an intriguing story, I actually want Casanova to go through with the complaint. It's like me wanting the NBA Finals to go a full 7 games instead of just a boring 4-game sweep lol. It's more exciting to find out how it plays out and who actually wins.

GreenArcher -- classic lol.

Manners, courtesy, etiquette, respect, these are things this generation have no idea what its all about. This generation is so much different from even just people 20 yrs ago. Young people this days only think about themselves and themselves alone. Like what TIME magazine says, its the ME, ME, ME generation. They do things becoz it makes them happy, they dont care about others or about anything anymore. And this is really sad.

I experienced those rowdy people inside a theater several times. I once asked them to keep their voices down, ang sagot "**** alam mo, nagbayad ako ng ticket ko kaya pwede ko gawin ang gusto ko!"

Yup Agree with you Bosny. Mas madami ngang pasaway ngayon panahon kaysa nuon (panahon namin/natin) kung saan mas disiplinado ang mga tao/bata. Ngayon kasi dami nang walang takot sa diyos o rispeto sa kapwa tao nila. Pati buhay napaka mura ang halaga. Kanya nga rin instead of learning how to trust others, nowadays can't help but end up learning to distrust and see the worse in people kasi better safe than sorry ika nga. Hay...

Anyway, here is Marc John's comment quoted in toto:

"Annual lease of P 60 - 80 per sq.m. Come on that's not even near the current "monthly" lease rates of commercial lots in BGC! BCDA opted to donate the 3.6 has. lot for Taguig local government to build a civic center and a city hall for the benefit of its citizens.

Despite the opportunity to sell it to property developers which could have easily generated Billions of Pesos to fund the Armed Forces of the Philippines (which is BCDA's main thrust), BCDA choose to give back to the people of Taguig.

Unfortunately, it was illegally leased to SM just for them to build a mall at lease rate far, far lower than prevailing prices.

National Government, Armed Forces of the Philippines and Taguig citizens, you were all shortchanged here just for specific people to earn big time on lot which legally belongs to you.

And yet here we are being bullied by foreign threats who wants to take more of our land for its natural resources for the simple reason that we do not have funding to modernize our Armed Forces."

This comment from a certain Aora Hote can be taken as a rebuttal to the recent comments made by Marc John Mangubat Buencamino and BCDA / Mr. Cassanova himself for that matter...

From Aora Hote on June 11, 2013:
http://ph-underground.com/2013/06/11...ization-funds/

Over the course of the last couple of days, Mr. Casanova has been bemoaning that SM Aura is depriving the Armed Forces of the Philippines of billions of pesos for its modernization program.

That spin has even found its way into an opinion piece from the Philippine Daily Inquirer penned no less than Solita Collas-Monsod in which the respected columnist mouths Casanova’s lines.

In the opinion column, Monsod says:

Taguig City got that land for free, which means that the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the ultimate beneficiary of BCDA operations, had to forego the potential income from the use of the land—an income loss which it can hardly afford. And yet Taguig turned around, and is making money out of it (annual rent of at least P10.8 million a year, plus a signing fee of P70 million for its first lease contract with SM, and P100 million for its second). The land, apparently, is valued at P20 billion, so the Reader can do her own mental calculations about how much those contracts should be really worth.

Source: http://opinion.inquirer.net/54175/un...ore-variations


But, wait, not so fast Ms. Monsod! There seems to be something either wasn’t told to you or something you didn’t find out for yourself! Luckily, another columnist came out with this crucial detail. And that should bring us to the most insulting propaganda line of the BCDA — you know, this thing about how the SMPHI would make a lot of money, while the Armed Forces of the Philippines would not receive even just a cross-eyed centavo.

The BCDA came into being for the development of former military bases into commercial use—i.e. to make them make money which the BCDA would then remit to the government to arm our military that has been unarmed for so long.

Sometime in 2004, the BCDA had to give to the Taguig City government parcels of land in an exchange deal when the city government claimed then the BCDA encroached on city property. To settle the issue, BCDA agreed to give the city parcels of land in other areas. The 3.5-hectare property leased to SMPHI was part of the exchange deal. The BCDA in effect used it as settlement for the city territory incorporated into the American Cemetery.

In other words, even if the city government did not enter into a joint venture development with a private company for the 3.5-hectare property, the BCDA still would not make money out of it, and it still could not remit even a centavo to the military. It seems to me that Mr. Casanova and his boys were only using the name of the AFP in vain. Dangerous!

See, I know you are capable of reason. You can be more effective in getting your point of view across when you appeal to reason and logic and, observing civility in conduct. Sarcastic remarks sully your standing and a complete turnoff, for it crosses the bounds of civility. Don’t underestimate the persuasive power of the pen, its eloquence more compelling in disarming a foe than reliance to caustic remarks. Did you not find compelling enough to gain redemption than suffer the ignominy of being likened to a puppy? Such is the power of the pen, and I had to employ reverse psychology to compel you to return; and in doing so, you have validated yourself, regardless of your denial that you have no need of it.

One thing I was right though. It didn’t take more than 5 sentences. Ha ha ha ha ha. Happy posting.

For me, what I find cataclysmically prejudicial to BCDA is Section 2, Paragraph 5 of the DoC. When BCDA issues a TCT to convey this land to City of Taguig with no leans and encumbrance, and then declares in the DoC that they “shall not place any restrictions on the land use or zooning of the properties”, how can BCDA explain that away in a convincing manner? Believe it or not, they are going to explain that away by recitation of a basic doctrine, that laws are deemed incorporated in each and every contract. Say what?

That basic doctrine does not apply in this case because of a written declaration countermanding RA 7912 with a direct statement. Had it been silent about it, that is to say, if Section 2, paragraph 5 did not exist, or better yet, how about a clear and concise restrictive statement in the DoC that says, “the use of this land must be in accord with RA 7912”, there would not have been any controversy today.

First of all, Taguig did not get the land for free. It was a mutually agreed swap of lands. Now then, once BCDA issued a TCT to City of Taguig with no leans, encumbrances or restrictions, BCDA had to forego any potential income from the use of that land. Whether City of Taguig generates 1 cent or 1 trillion for leasing that land is not BCDA’s business any longer.

you're the one who's resorting to name calling. it's actually a sign of a weak argument. my one-liners elicit more responses from fanbois like you though.

P170 pesos ang singil, same as regular SM cinema. and "crap" according to my officemate. I dont think he goes to SSC to discuss Aura, so I think that comment was as honest as it can get.
