    Our Seda Vertis North Experience

    Okay, so this has become an annual thing. I’ve officially gotten addicted to checking out hotels that are kid friendly enough for a possibility of a nice staycation. As early as June last year, I was already scouting for one as a sort of summer getaway for this year. Ergo, I came across Seda Vertis North. Seda Vertis North’s Location Seda Vertis North is conveniently located in the upcoming busy property of Ayala Land, wherein a couple of condominiums are starting to mushroom towards the sky. It is a few steps away from Ayala Vertis Mall and a few meters further to Trinoma Mall. It’s quite advantageous being adjacent to…

    Our Museo Pambata Experience

    One day, we decided to do away from malls for a change. We were thinking of going to open parks, but, we thought that it might be too hot to walk around, especially in the afternoon. Then, we thought of Museo Pambata. Museo Pambata Museo Pambata literally is a museum for children. Yet, adults could also learn a thing or two in this place. Entrance Fee Admission fee is 250 pesos per head, starting from kids 2 years old and above. If you are a Manila resident, you may present a valid ID and you could get a 50% discount. But if you visit on a Tuesday, (as Manila resident),…

    Our Toddler’s First Disney On Ice Experience

    I grew up watching Disney films. We usually spend our summer days binge watching films from Bambi to Toy Story. And who does not love the Disney Princesses films ? Sometimes, having a kid is a good excuse to do kid stuffs you’ve always wanted to do yourself. And Disney On Ice was that perfect excuse. I’ve been always curious about it since it started its run here in Manila. Thankfully, Olive knows enough Disney characters to pass up as a newbie spectator of the show. Disney On Ice Tickets We were actually having second thoughts on booking tickets at first. We were asking ourselves whether it would be worth…

    Candy Factory at SM North EDSA Main Mall

    SM North, though huge, does not really have one big play or arcade area. Most of them are divided into many pocket playgrounds and arcade halls per building.   Candy Factory is one of those indoor playground. It is located in the lower ground floor of SM North Main Mall, within the food court area. What’s Inside Candy Factory   Candy Factory is very attractive from the outside. Its splash of pink, violet and blue hues unusually draws you in like a moth to a light bulb.   Candy Factory may be small, but it’s packed with everything an active child can enjoy.   Candy Factory’s Play Sections   Ball…

    Fun City At Ali Mall Araneta Center Cubao

    Last week, we were exploring our options on where to take our daughter since she has been longing for a “pasyal”. My hubby stumbled on a picture of an indoor playground located in Araneta Center. We thought it was located in Gateway, so we decided to give it a go.   However, when we asked some personnel where the play area was, they pointed us at Timezone. We asked another one, and he referred us to go Fun City in Ali Mall.   What’s Inside Fun City ?   Fun City is indeed a “city” because it was a really huge indoor playground I’ve been into so far.   It…

    Olivia’s First Trip to the Manila Ocean Park

    I’ve been to Manila Ocean Park when it was newly opened to the public. The main attraction back then was just the Oceanarium. If I remember it right, the entrance fee was like 500 pesos per head.   We went there again. But we only visited the Jellyfish exhibit, Seri 3D Fantasy Art and Mirror Maze since those were the added attractions back then.   This marked my 3rd visit to Manila Ocean Park more than five years later. This was our daughter’s first.     How Much Does It Cost to Visit Manila Ocean Park   Manila Ocean Park offers various packages with corresponding prices: Marine Voyage (15 activities)…

    Kira’s Box at Trinoma Mall

    It’s been a while since we went to Trinoma. After Olive’s visit from the doctor, we hitched a ride with my sister since they were going there.   After eating our lunch, we let Olive ride on the carousel, Ferris wheel and some kiddie rides in Timezone. We decided to roam around the mall after, but we came across this little indoor playground named Kira’s Box.   What’s Inside Kira’s Box ?   Kira’s Box is a charming little playground that’s more focused on pretend play. It’s not as big as Kidzoona but it’s more than enough for little kids to have fun with.     Once you get inside,…

    Kidzoona at Ayala Malls Cloverleaf

    Kidzoona in Ayala Malls Cloverleaf opened late last year. One very hot Sunday afternoon, we decided to escape the scalding weather and made a trip to this indoor playground.   This branch is bigger than the one visited in Lucky Chinatown Mall. Its price is also a bit cheaper — 200 pesos for 1 hour, which already includes one guardian fee. If there would be an additional guardian, you will have to pay 100 pesos. Socks are offered for 30 pesos a pair.   As mentioned on my previous post on toddler playground tips, we checked if the place was too crowded to let Olivia play in. Thankfully, it was…

    Novotel Manila Araneta Center-Amazingly Family Friendly

    We haven’t made any out-of-town plans yet ever since Olivia was born. Since we are still in the process planning it, we intend to have at least one staycation per year instead. We stayed at Novotel Manila in Araneta Center Cubao for this year. The reason why I chose this hotel was because I wanted to try other hotels in Quezon City. I booked Novotel Manila from Agoda last November. The rate I got already included a breakfast buffet for two. The Lobby and Checking In Our Grab driver mistakenly dropped us off on a different entrance. So, Olive and I had to walk a bit from there to the…

    Kids Paradise at Fisher Mall

    Kids Paradise is an indoor playground located at the 4th level of Fisher Mall in Quezon City. It’s beside the School of Ballet Manila and facing the mini carousel.

It is already inclusive of one guardian. There would be an additional 50 pesos in case the other parent or guardian would like to get in. They sell a pair of socks at 25 pesos in case you forgot to bring a pair. What’s Inside…
