Last day for the Wongs in Manila 😢


Brunch! iHop one last time!

Too bad I didn’t do more research on visiting the Malacañang Palace. We ended up skipping that since we didn’t make any reservations for it. (Which no one told me until the driver did *rolls eyes to my Pinoy friends*)

Oh well, next time then!

Maleficent with the Wongs! Manila Day 1.




With my sister and her family here in BGC Cinemas! First time to try 4DX!

The cinema is relatively new, it just opened in April 30. I am so glad I got to experience a new mall with my sister and her family. And to watch a Disney Classic Movie at that! The full on 4DX had smell, sounds and movement experience getting you to feel like you are actually IN the movie itself! I absolutely loved the twist to the story and I would rate it a 4 / 5 star just because I love watching Angelina Jolie! hehehehehe

Paid for 450 pesos each ticket and I am glad Chloe made the height limit! Only Children at least 3.5 meters tall were allowed in the 4DX cinema! Phew!


Our day 1 Manila Vacation kicks off with that movie, then jalan-jalan (or pasyal-pasyal) at Bonifacio High Street on our way to iHop! Had a super late lunch there, and we also passed by Chez Karine and got a taste of the Macarons, then onward to Market Market to get the girls’ Penny Boards!

We got a total of 4 Penny Boards and the sales lady still couldn’t give me anything lower than 1.7K for each patterned board. Tsk. But oh well, at least it was a marked down price (so she says) from 2500, to 1800 pesos.

By the time we finished at Market Market, it was already about 8pm and we didn’t even go around to any other shops within Market Market! Off we go to SM Aura for the next shopping destination as Danica really wanted to experience Forever 21 shopping as we didn’t have them back home.

I on the other hand, opted to get the Penny Boards to the car but guess what, I couldn’t reach the driver at that time! His phone was out and I had no way of reaching or contacting him! I was in the verge of thinking of the worst case scenario, which was to grab a cab for all of us to get back to the Unit 2508 Makati Executive Tower 2 condo which we were staying in. But thank God, I was able to ask the owner to help and he suggested that I page the driver from SM Aura security guards and they noticed the car was driving around the drop off point. So after much hassle, I finally managed to reach him through his phone anyway.

Our night ended really late, got to the condo about almost 11pm. And we still had a whole day schedule the next day. Despite the very rushed planning, and last minute plans, I was really happy to be spending time with them here in Manila, finally after 6 years!
