Our Week-long Celebration of Fathers’ Day

This 2018, Father’s Day was extra special. Our much awaited Disney Pixar movie is finally showing in cinemas! 🙂

Yes! Our family is a BIG FAN of The Incredibles Movie. It was in 2014 when it was released by Disney Pixar Movies. From then on we kept on waiting for it’s part 2.

We were all excited when finally it is here. The Incredibles Movie II is showing here in the Philippines and on Fathers’ Day! Woohoo!!! Guess daddy will treat us on his special day. 😉

And to make it extra exciting, my son and I got an exclusive invite to The Incredibles 2 Media Launch. It was held at S’Maison at Conrad Manila. Upon our arrival at the mall we were greeted by this large logo of The Incredibles.

While inside are fun activities for the kids. You can collect balloons in the Violet Force Field Booth. Test your speed in Dash’s  Timed Obstacle. Feel the rush, jump and fly at Elastigirl’s Trampoline Area and show off your creativity with Mr. Incredible’s logo builder by Nutri-Asia’s Papa Catsup.

Not only that. Raix and I got the chance to watch it’s premiere. Call it luck, back-to-back. 🙂 It’s premiere was at SM Aura, IMAX Theater at Bonifacio Global City. The day of the premiere was a rainy one, in fact there was a storm. But it didn’t stop us from watching it. I decided to grab the opportunity to accept the invitation to join the premiere even if we planned to watch it together with our fam, because being invited to a Disney Pixar Movie premiere was totally wicked. Haha.

As expected it was worth the 14 years of wait. So my son and I went home and kept the excitement to ourselves so as not to spoil his sisters and daddy. We were very silent about it for about 5 days. Imagine how we did that? Especially with my very “madaldal” son. He can actually talk non-stop while watching a full movie. 😀

Then came Father’s Day. Everybody’s excited! My youngest sister even tagged along. The greatest challenge for Raix was to keep quiet while inside the cinema and not to mention what would happen next. Hahaha. And would you believe that for the first time he was not a spoiler. 😀 It was one unforgettable Fathers’ Day for our family. We can’t wait for part 3.

Hot Wheels Epic Race THE FINALS 2016

Summer’s over but our family still can’t get enough of our little boy’s Epic Experience. Few weeks ago I posted about our epic racing experience, now it finally came to an end.
Our little boy, was one of the 20 qualifiers for the EPIC RACE FINALS, along with 40 more kids from the South and the North of Luzon. My kiddo and I were very excited and even counted our number of sleeps before the Big Day.
During the semi-finals, kids were given a time to warm-up their cars by participating in various activities: building tracks, jumping on loops and racing with their friendly competitors.
 


The area was jam-packed! Parents and kids alike are excited and thrilled to once again try their luck on the Gravity Racing Platform.

We made it once again to the final round!!! Woohoo! Finalists are to be back the following day for the last and final round.

On the day of the big event, Toy Kingdom had a few more competitions for our kids and dads. The competition, named as Track Wars, is inline with the Hot Wheels’ new product The Track Builder System.

 

 Winners from the mini competition.

The 35 kids gave their very best for the Final Round. All hopes were up as they release their cars as the host shout for GO! But there can only be 1 EPIC Record breaker. Congratulations Richmonde Borja! 🙂
