When CJ & Acey showed me the paper from their school to notify parents about the fieldtrip, I told them we will just join next year but my daughter Acey begged because she haven't been to Enchanted Kingdom. On the second thought, I realized kids deserve a break from the third periodical exam, so I gave in. My sister in law and her kids joined too which made the fieldtrip more exciting.
There were 13 buses, approximately 650 students, teachers & parents joined the filedtrip last January 30, 2010. Assembly started as early as 4am. We were at bus # 3 and each bus has a tour guide, ours was Kuya Owel, funny and gay...lol.
First stop was the Sumo Sumo production area. Kids were ask to sit down, hands up and wave, afterwards, they showed in the monitor the finish product. Kids were flying like superheroes. The next room was the dubbing area. A teacher and a parent were ask to read the scripts or dialogue with feelings of an anime film.
We proceeded to watch the Davao Crocodile Show. It's not only crocodiles that we got to see. CJ & Acey were able to touch an albino and shake hands with a monkey. I didn't get to see other animals because I went to a shaded area. I'm not fond of zoo and animals. I just go there during fieldtrips and for the kids.
We rode the Pasig River ferry cruise. Kudos to the people working to make the Pasig River clean ang pleasing to the eyes. Students, parents and teachers were educated about history of the said river. We passed by the different bridges and saw the back of Malacanang Palace while on cruise. Let's participate in the "Piso para sa Pasig" project by giving a peso or more.
Before going to Enchanted Kingdom, we were given an hour to take our lunch in Mall of Asia. My sister and I would like to try the dishes from any resto in MOA but the kids insisted that we just eat in KFC. I wanted to try yogurt ice cream and crepes too but my tummy is saying otherwise.
The highlight of the fieldtrip was going to Enchanted Kingdom that was unbelievably jampacked. You have to fall in line for more than an hour to be able to enjoy a ride. We decided to just watch a 30 minute magic show. We paid 50 pesos for the Simon & Silver magic show. Oh boy, it was mesmerizing and entertaining and I must say it's the cheapest yet amazing magic show I've ever seen in my entire life.
We all enjoyed the fieltrip immensely. We got home at 11pm.
