Forest Hill City

Now this is what I call a shopping centre. Compared to Cresta Shopping Mall which even though they just come through a major revamp was a disaster of a mall. For one the air conditioning at Forest Hill City is working perfectly making it very pleasant to shop.

At Cresta yesterday we endured just over 2 hours of hell on earth and had to pay R6 parking as an insult, At Forest Hill we spent more than 4 hours shopping which felt like a breeze and we paid only R5 for parking, and that was also for underground parking out of the blaring (glaring) mid-day African sun. Plus on weekdays they have 2 hours free parking. Goes to show how greedy Cresta’s management have become, "Don’t fix the air con and charge them more to come shop" is not the way to win the hearts and minds.

Another thing about Forest Hill City mall is that they go out of their way to make it enjoyable to shop there is they know that it is a big mall to walk and that women drag their husbands shopping so they placed convenient sofas and couches everywhere. I know Clearwater Mall used to do this once upon a time but not anymore. Well it looks like I found a better mall to come to from now on.

As for the men waiting on their better halfs to finish shopping, well it can be tiring with all this Christmas shopping and those leather sofas can be oh so comfortable. Snooze on big man, we understand.
