I got an invite to cover the Fun-O-Lympics at the Manila Ocean Park last Saturday, unfortunately, we were not able to attend as the little man still has a bit of cough + colds + I decided that we stay home that weekend so he can rest + relax.
The event was successful + I bet a lot of families enjoyed participating in the games or watching in the sideline as the event progressed. Here is an interesting read on what happened at the Fun-O-Lypmics last weekend, read on….
The Manila Ocean Park + Crispy Fry Breading Mix paired up to present Fam-O-Lympics + promote engaging sports + memorable family bonding activities to Filipino families this summer. Six teams of families vie for the much-coveted Championship title, through a series of outdoor challenges that test their dexterity, wit, stamina + team work. As early as 10:00 AM, throngs of families troop to the Manila Ocean Park to witness the opening ceremonies enliven by young talents led by the Ramon Magsaysay High School Band. The main competition begins in the afternoon.
In the end, Team 4 wins the Fam-O-Lympics. Team leader Remoly Ortega recounts what has been their winning strategy, “The ‘buddy system’ that we formed among ourselves became handy in selecting the person or pair to best represent the team in each challenge. The winning team receives Php 15,000, as well as tickets to Manila Ocean Park Attractions, overnight accommodations at Hotel H20 + other gifts from the sponsors.
Other families also take part in other exciting activities including games, parenting talks, cooking demonstrations + story telling that the event sponsors organize at the Concourse area of the Manila Ocean Park.
Fam-O-Lympics is presented by Manila Ocean Park, the all-season holiday destination within the city and is home to 10,000 marine life species indigenous to the Philippines and Southeast Asia, + Crispy Fry Breading Mix, a product of Ajinomoto that guarantees the crispiness + yumminess of fried chicken; which comes in original, garlic + spicy variants.
