Guess where we had fun the whole day today?
The queue was apparently looooong but heck, we were there to wait for our son to be registered and got his coupons for the participating high-end shops’ Halloween goodies.
We woke up at around 6AM without electricity and less rain but with strong winds. It was typhoon signal # 3 in Metro Manila since yesterday because Santi a.k.a. Mirinae had slammed via Quezon Province en route to Batangas thus hitting the capital and nearby provinces. Thankfully, it weakened into a tropical storm this afternoon and allowed the streets to be dry and the sun to show up.
Like Christmas, Halloween is much anticipated fun-filled event especially by kids like our own. Come hell, or high waters, it should be celebrated
Honestly, our 5-year-old son, Gabby initially wanted to wear his dream this Halloween. So weeks ago, his mom, Tina and I bought him a toque, an apron and a napkin as accessory for he wishes to be a chef someday. But when Tina got him a face paint kit from Market, Market 2 days ago, we decided for Gabby to wear his last year’s costume to his preschool party which was held yesterday morning, and to TRICK or TREATING today at a mall…
Grooming -hair and face-paint, by my lovely wife, Tina…
My youngest brother who reported to his work this morning somewhere in Makati texted me that it’s safe to go to Greenbelt 5 for there was no traffic and sky was getting clearer. So we didn’t waste time and headed off to G5.
We saw Mr. Edu Manzano at House of Obagi with someone who chose not to be photographed. We really appreciated his efforts of posing for our son for few sec and even told Gabby, “You look good!” 3x!!! - Now, I know Mr. Manzano’s sooo honest!
At GREYONE SOCIAL : Ninjas alike!
At ZARA : When Gabby approached their counter and handed in the coupon in exchange for their Halloween treats, the people of Zara were all smile at him. They admired him and his costume so much. We like Zara and we love their staff at G5 even more! :D
At HIVE : This furniture and interiors store’s staffs were also welcoming. Thank you for being kind to kids! May your sales double up in the coming days…
At YOH-GURT FROZ FRO-YO : The yogurt that tops our favorites was one of the sponsors
We became excited when we saw Pepper Lunch’s banner at G5. It’s high time for PL to sizzle it their way to Makati. I wish they’ll have Quezon City branch too. We’ve tried Pepper Lunch a few times already (and did some posts here) in Powerplant and Shangri la malls. Incidentally, we also passed by a shop that also features PL owner’s (Chuvaness) shirt line Heather Miss Grey.
At CROCS : Gabby smiled when he saw clones of the slippers he’s wearing :D …We also asked Gabby to pose near Rolex watch store that became a news item when it was robbed few days ago. It’s business as usual as if nothing happened.
Then at half hour past one in the afternoon, we ate lunch at John and Yoko (I’ll post it soon). After we chow down, we went to Glorietta to buy some supplies.
No tricks, just treats…
Sure, anyone can afford all these but not HAPPINESS that came with it. :D
Gabby’s SMILES and OUR FAMILY BONDING MOMENTS are simply priceless.
PS : Did I tell you that Gabby won the CUTEST KINDERGARTEN PUPIL award (note : not the scariest) in their preschool’s halloween party yesterday? I cannot blame them; our son is really adorable
Did you go trick or treating too? :D Happy Halloween!
