Our McDonald's Grand Halloween Family Fun Day Experience

October 26, 2016


Hi Friends! Adi and I got invited to one of the most sought after kiddie party in Cebu this Halloween Season, the McDonald's Grand Halloween Family Fun Day. It was their second time to hold it here in Cebu, we were also invited the first time but were not able to make it then. 

I was excited at the same I was worried that Adi won't want to come. I have been very cautious about attending Halloween Kiddie parties in the past since Adi had experienced trauma regarding the scary side of the celebration. He got very much scared when he saw halloween costumes ramping around malls that he threw tantrums everytime we went inside the malls. It was desperate time for us. 

But thanks to youtube halloween videos, this eventually went away. So when I told him we were going to a Halloween party, I was honestly surprised that he was very eager to tell me he was going to be that witch pointing the scene from youtube with the song phrase "there's a witch flying round and round". I can't tell you how happy I was. So by then, I knew I had to be more creative and take all my creative powers to diy the costume. Thankfully, I was able to create it in time. 😊 

So much effort was gone into this that it deserves   another blogpost. 😂 I will talk about how I diy-ed this costume with the help of my mom in another post. 

So anyways, the call time was 8 am, and me having to take care of a 9 month old baby, I knew I had to wake up early to get my game going and so I asked the help of my mom and the husband.

I already prepared the things I would need to cover the event the night before as well as the things we would bring there.

When we arrived, the venue was already filled with moms, excited families like us and kids dressed in beautiful halloween costumes. You can really feel their excitement.

 Just one of the families taking their poses on the Photobooth. Payment was 20 pesos for each photo.
 And so we lined up hurriedly, and striked our own poses. I picked the photobooth from outside as it's not that crowded yet and to be honest, I wanted Adi not to panic when we finally go inside the convention hall. Lol!

 Here's the stage. The screens were huge and the place has enough space for everyone to sit and watch the show. I love that everyone can get to enjoy spending time with their families through this kinds of event and also for the kids to interact with other children through play. Every kid who signed up got to enjoy their Mcdo 1 pc Chicken McDo Meal.

 Kids who joined the event also get to have free Halloween Hats, cape and Halloween pumpkins to complete their Halloween look!


But of course, we didn't arrive home empty handed. Coca-Cola Philippines gave this awesome tote bag that came with Coca Cola products in it. Thanks Coca Cola Ph! And also Adi got this cute toy from their Happy Meal pack, it was their hotwheels toy and he really enjoyed playing with it afterwards. 

Thank you McDonald's for the awesome party. We surely had a great time and we would surely join next year with the whole family.

This year also marks the first time for the event to happen in Manila this coming October 29th at the World Trade Event Center in Manila. So moms from Manila get your halloween costumes ready.

Thank you for Reading! I hoped you enjoyed as much as we did.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Till my next post, guys!

Sinulog 2014: Security Tips

January 14, 2014

Here are some few personal security tips for the coming Sinulog that I'd like to share with you...  Pit Senyor!!!


PERSONAL SECURITY
This guide is full of tips that can help you avoid becoming a victim of a crime when you are out and about enjoying the solemn procession or the street party. By taking a few simple precautions, you can reduce the risk to yourself, and also discourage those who commit crime. Bear in mind that a lot of other people are coming to visit and watch the celebration, this may include bad elements.


Sinulog 2014 Schedule 
Sinulog 2014 Traffic Schedule




Be prepared
  • Always be alert and aware of the people around you.
  • Educate yourself concerning prevention tactics.
  • Be aware of locations and situations which would make you vulnerable to crime, such as alleys and dark parking lots.
Street precautions
  • Be alert to your surroundings and the people around you, especially if you are alone.
  • Whenever possible, travel with a friend.
  • Stay away from very crowded areas as much as possible.
  • Walk confidently, and at a steady pace.
  • Make eye contact with people when walking.
  • Do not respond to conversation from strangers on the street, continue walking.
  • If you carry a purse, hold it securely between your arm and your body.
  • If you carry a Camera or any electronic devices with you, make sure it is attached to your body with a use of a sling.
Car safety
  • Always lock car doors after entering or leaving your car.
  • Park in well maintained areas.
  • Have your car keys in your hand so you don't have to linger before entering your car.
  • Check the back seat before entering your car.
  • If you think you are being followed, drive to a public place or a police, or fire station.
  • Don't stop to aid motorists stopped on the side of the road. Go to a phone and request help for them.
  • Lexmark Parking area is open for employees.
Additional Tips
  • Avoid bringing too much valuables while enjoying the Street Party.
  • Wear comfortable clothes, shirts, pants, etc. . . .
  • Don't forget to bring your own bottled water, if you need to buy one, buy from a reliable source.
  • Don't invite trouble — keep gold chains out of sight; don't flash your jewelry; and turn your rings around so the stones don't show.
If a crime occurs – report it!
Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. At least one out of two crimes in the United States goes unreported, either because people don't think the police can do anything about it, or because people don't want to get involved. If you don't report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference. 


Enjoy!
