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.

Annam Noodle Bar at Resorts World Manila: A Taste of Vietnamese Food

Are you a fan of delicious, fresh, and healthy Vietnamese food? We are! And I know that there’s only a few Vietnamese restaurants in the city to choose from. The good news is Annam Noodle Bar just opened in Resorts World Manila.

Annam is brought to the Philippines by the popular NamNam Noodle Bar in Singapore. The only difference is the name they had to use for the Philippines but it’s the same delicious Pho, Banh Mi, and Vietnamese Rice Meals inspired by the old-world Vietnamese street food with a modern twist.

What to Order at Annam Noodle Bar

While it’s easy to order the usual fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce dip, Annam Noodle Bar restaurant’s interior style and feel are very encouraging to try something new.

It’s easy to imagine that you are in a different place and must take your appetite to a new adventure.

Annam’s menu is exciting with all the choices of appetizers, banh mi sandwiches, pho noodle soups, and Viet desserts too!

Selection of Viet street snacks, nước chấm, P280 – this sampler is recommended to enjoy as your appetizer. It’s good for sharing and has at least 4 kinds of fried rolls. The dip is delicious but you can customize with Annam’s signature fish and hoisin sauces.

Lemon Grass Ginger Iced Tea P150 – the drink is super fresh, herb-y, and reminds me of my favorite ginger tea or salabat. I like that it’s not made too sweet and is very light to enjoy with the all the dishes.

Resorts World Manila Christmas 2016 – Schedule

There are now many options to spend Christmas time and celebrations with the family. One of the top choices is Resorts World, especially if you are from the surrounding area – you know that the newly constructed roads has significantly improved traffic along airport road. Now, it’s even easier to go to Resorts World even for us from the south.

We bumped into Santa and the Super Dudes at the activity center of Newport Mall. As in they were just standing there and anyone could have a photo taken. We love RWM! P.S. I was waving at camera so my hand is blurred :(

The top reason I bring my family here is the quality of the place, it’s a venue to go to if you want to enjoy but in a different kind of mall than the usual. At Resorts World, it feels like a hotel-mall or mall-hotel which isn’t a surprise since Newport is surrounded by many luxury hotels like Maxims and Marriott.

Trolls Movie & Halloween Experience at Newport Mall, Resorts World

Ashton and I wanted to make the most out of our weekend and decided to visit Newport Mall. We checked the  Resorts World Manila Facebook Page and found they have a FREE Halloween event for kids that day.

You must present a receipt/proof of purchase to join the Halloween Kid’s Fair so we first ate at Ichiba. It’s our second time here and I ordered my favorite Takoyaki and Ika Fry.

Snack Time at Ichiba

Ichiba is already an attraction for kids and adult alike. The waiters would regularly perform with the giant drum shouting Japanese words that makes you feel like in Japan. The wet market is also a favorite hang out of kids who want to see live giant crabs, fish, and other seafood.

I like hanging out here because I’ve never been to Japan and this place makes me feel like I am.

Trolls Halloween Kid’s Fair

Upon presenting our receipt (from Ichiba), Ashton was already given a huge Halloween loot bag full of goodies. My son enjoyed going around the different booths, especially the arts and crafts station. We missed some of the activities because of our spontaneous trip but we were so happy to see the Trolls!

The line got quiet long with kids and we might be late for the movie so we just watched the mascots as they took photos with other kids. Ashton was also not in costume and it’s okay because we just really want to do something on a Sunday.

Trolls Movie Experience at Newport Cinema

After all the Halloween activities, we relaxed first at the Newport Cinema lounge area. This is one of the reasons why I prefer watching movies here, so relaxed, clean, and family friendly.

Ashton inspected his loot bag from the Halloween event and also found some snacks and drinks to enjoy while watching Trolls. Yehey, no need to buy popcorn :)

Inside the cinema, Ashton and I were surprised at the cinema roulette. I’ve heard the radio ads but not yet experience one, Ashton and I enjoyed watching the screen and hoping for our seat number to be called. Someone else won but it was a different experience for me and my son that we enjoyed very much.

Just a short review of the movie, it’s highly recommended! Parents like me will appreciate the musical parts featuring top songs from the past and kids will enjoy all the adventure and storytelling. The movie won’t bore viewers, all of the parts are fun and exciting plus it’s not very long and is just right for an enjoyable family movie experience. Regular showing starts on November 2 so don’t miss this chance to bond with your kids and family in the cinema :)

Happy Halloween Mommy & Baby!

Meet & Greet Santa Clause, Hi-5 at Resorts World Manila

Christmas is here and every year, families look for the grandest Christmas experiences that all family members can enjoy. We are lucky to be in a place where shopping malls and hotels offer free features, performances, and merry activities. Just like Resorts World Manila who launched their Grand Fiesta with a bang.

Watch this video I took of the thrilling Grand Fiesta experience in store for everyone:
