The Halloween celebration is one of the most awaited events every year, especially for kids and kids at heart who have a penchant for spooky things and playing dress-up . While this year’s celebration might be different than usual, don’t that let that stop you from wearing your favorite costume and enjoying all the candies that you can at home!
The little man and I was excited for this year’s Halloween because of the Mommy Bloggers Philippines‘ Halloween Party! Of course it is a given that the little one will be all excited about the idea of wearing his Harry Potter costume and the prospect of meeting up with mum bloggers that I get to interact online daily was more than enough to make me giddy like a little girl! ^_^
Trick Or Treat At Fun Ranch’s The Big Red Barn
The much-anticipated party was held on 18 October at the Big Red Barn of Fun Ranch in Ortigas. It is much appreciated that Fun Ranch reserved the Great Big Room so the big crowd of mums, kiddos, and families can enjoy comfortable and the little ones had plenty of space to roam and run around.
As I’ve mentioned, Jared channeled his inner Harry Potter and from the looks of it, and judging from the way he happily played and roamed around the party venue, he absolutely enjoyed the experience. Too bad, great photos were scarce as it was rather difficult to take good shots of a child while he was too busy running all over the place!
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.
