The only way that we can reward ourselves is by going out with friends or family. This helps us refresh, calm down and relax our mind. After some leisure time, resuming back to work becomes easy, and we are even more efficient. Family bonds have been broken up by the two jobs we got to work. Parenting has solely become financial support. For the residents of Joao Pessoa, leisure time was impossible because of the extra transportation cost that they had to incur to access the joints.
This was what inspired Roberto Santiago. He wanted to give his people a recreational facility that was well equipped. This was to ensure that the residents did not incur any transportation cost to access the joints.
In 1987, he bought the land on which he wanted to lay the foundation of the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall. In two years’ time, Santiago launched the mall. It had around 280 buildings. Among this premises were medical facilities, bank facilities, schools, colleges, jewelry stores, boutique among others. This explains why the residents describe the mall as a small city. You can live in the mall for months and have access to everything.
The occupants have embraced the mall entirely. It is normal to find families having fun on weekends. This is because they can shop and have family outings in the same venue. They are many activities that the families can engage in under the mall. There numerous food courts in the manaira mall. Some families enjoy food tasting because of the wide range of food types. They are both modern and traditional food.
They are also many playing items and playing stations for the children. Their beautiful views where the parents can take a drink as kids play.
The other part of the mall that the residents love is the Domus Hall. The hall holds up to 8000 individuals. The sounding and lighting system is extraordinary. Watching a 3D movie in the Domus Hall is like being on the scene with the actor.
The residents are allowed to lend the mall to hold their ceremonies. Many graduations, wedding ceremonies, and conferences have been held here.
