MANILA, Philippines – American actress Sarah Jessica Parker was warmly welcomed by her Filipino fans on her first visit to the country.
Parker graced the launch of the SM Aura mall at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig on Thursday. Dressed in an elegant sheer black dress, the actress was all smiles as she talked about her first impressions of Manila.
“Everybody is so kind, such loving hospitality,” she said in a press conference after the ribbon cutting ceremony. “The food and the people, everything. I even love the traffic.”
“I’m always attracted to cities,” added Parker, who currently lives in New York with her husband, Matthew Broderick, and their three children.
“When I’m going around, it’s not so much the shopping, it’s much for me what my eyes see, you know? The different colors, the jeepneys, all that kind of ‘shopping with the eye’ outside of [just] shopping. That, to me, is equally as interesting.”
“I was looking around the city here, and there’s so much to see. It’s so alive, there’s a lot of vibrancy in the city.”
