By Ethel Merioles @kaxmerio
In celebration of 70 years of bilateral relations between the Philippines and Australia, the Australian Embassy, along with SM Supermalls, hosted the Celebrate Australia 2016: Say G'day at SM roadshow exhibition. SM Supermalls Celebrate Australia 2016 Launched in February 2016, the event featured a historical photo exhibition showcasing the depth and breadth of ties between the two countries. The roadshow will finally have its last stop at SM The Block from May 12-19, 2016. SM mall goers and shoppers can join the raffle and get a chance to win round trip tickets and tours for two in Melbourne. On May 22, 2016, Australia will mark the opening of its first Consulate-General in Manila in 1946, with a ceremonial lighting of its 70th Anniversary logo in SM Mall of Asia.
