My Personal Experience: I went to the Festival Alabang last year December 17, 2016, together with my best friend. We went there to attend the dedication of my friend daughter in the mall. I don't know what dedication until my friend said it's another word for baptism. Upon arrival we brought the biggest gift from Makati to Alabang it's hassle but all worth it:)
