Now that’s a whole lot of reasons to come and experience Christmas at Resorts World Manila. I suggest coming on weekends this December when you can expect activities at the Newport Mall Activity Area. The entire Resorts World looks so magical this year.

When you get tired of all the walking and malling, my personal tip is to drop by Maxim’s Cafe to relax and recoup your energy. They also have cute Christmas hampers you can treat yourself with or to give to family and friends.

Have a spectacular Christmas everybody! :)

Thor and Hulk Marvel Studios Tour at SM Supermalls

Look who we bumped into at SM supermalls! We were at SM Southmall Las Piñas when SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. and the Walt Disney Company unveiled life-size gladiator figures of the mighty Thor and the Hulk!

The Hulk Ragnarok version

Ashton was so excited to see his favorite Marvel superheroes come to life, plus the Thor and Hulk exhibit also featured iconic displays and immersive activities. My son got to try out top Marvel Studio apps such as Marvel Future Fight, Marvel Contest of Champions, Marvel Puzzle Quest, and Marvel Avengers Academy. These are all for free at the Thor and Hulk exhibit in SM.

While Ashton was busy playing, I admired all the exclusive Disney merchandise of Thor, Hulk, Loki, and Valkyrie. There were also toys that are so familiar to us because Ashton collects them. It’s a very good experience to see all of these Marvel merchandise, displays, and app come together in one venue. It’s a Marvel’s fan dream come true.

Marvel Super Hero Mashers are top toys that kids collect and play with

Lots of Marvel t-shirts for kids and even adults. You can also buy your Thor: Ragnarok movie tickets in advance at the exhibit or through www.smcinema.com.

Yes there’s still time to experience this for you and your family. Visit S’Maison from October 24-31 to enjoy the Thor and Hulk Tour, take lots of selfies with the life-size figures, play the apps, buy the toys, merchandise, and of course, the movie tickets to enjoy the actual Thor: Ragnarok movie that everyone is waiting for.

Easter Barnyard 2017 Experience at Resorts World Manila

Easter has become a fun and spectacular celebration for kids, especially with malls around the metro that host Easter Egg Hunts, costume contests, and magic shows. Easter Sunday can easily become a busy day for mommies looking for the best venue and activity for kids to enjoy the Easter celebration.

We chose Resorts World Manila’s Easter Barnyard Adventure as it is the most visible and talked about online. I even shared the poster to my excitement and to let even more mommies know! Come Easter Sunday which was a partly cloudy day, it was tempting to stay at home but the new Skyway also known as NAIA Ex makes going to Resorts World Manila such a breeze. Buti nalang at hindi kami tinamad!

Kids Easter Celebration at Resorts World Manila

This review might be helpful in deciding where to spend your Easter Sunday in 2018. Newport Mall in Resorts World Manila is a top choice for Filipino families as a lifestyle and leisure destination. The shops are family friendly with mid-range restaurants, even fast food options. There’s always something going on at the Activity Hall for everyone to watch & enjoy especially on weekends.

It pays to read the mechanics before going on this Easter Adventure, I downloaded the Resorts World app first and showed a P2,500 receipt. We ate at Annam Noodle Bar and bought takeaway to reach the purchase requirement. We presented it at the booth and got a ticket to enjoy the Easter Barnyard Adventure!

Super sulit with the many booths that you can claim goodies from. Parent and child are both given activity cards with different stubs attached. The kids enjoyed free snacks like Tender Juicy Hotdog, Gardenia bread, Country Style donut, Eggnog snacks, and the most popular that day was the giant cotton candy!

There was a small skit and singing and dancing followed by a mysterious and enthralling magic show. There were also fun games in between.

Activity booths like cookie decorating (sadly McCormick ran out of cookies for us to decorate) and face painting were also available.

I noticed how Resorts World also quietly included kids from charitable organizations and treated them like royalty during the event. Good job Resorts World! They had the best seat in the house and I’m sure these kids enjoyed the event as much as my son did, maybe even more :)

Overall we made the right decision to celebrate Easter Sunday at Resorts World. Everything was organized, safe, and secure that it was also fun for mommies like me.

Like and stay tuned on Resorts World Manila Facebook Page, this is where I get to know what’s up for families and kids such as free activities like this. You can also download the Resorts World Manila mobile app.

Happy Easter Mommy and Baby!
