disney on ice

I initially didn't have any plans at all for Christmas Day, except laze around the house in my house dress. But Ted was telling me that Christmas is not for me, but for the kids. So, we should be thinking of activities for the kids.

I mentioned last time that we've been to almost all the places in Metro Manila, and there seems to be really nowhere new to visit. Good thing that every now and then, something new happens.

The latest visitors in town is Disney's Holiday on Ice, at the Araneta Center running from December 25 till about the first week of January. I have caught Disney on Ice about 2x in my life. One, when I was a kid, and Second, when Ted and I were new parents to Hans (who was then about 2 years old) and we were all excited to show him everything, which expectedly, Hans can't remember anything now. (I will wring his neck, if he will not be able to remember our US Trip when he was 4 year old)

Anyway, the latest Disney installment is a bit lackluster for me, or has it always been that way? Is it just my taste and standard that has improved? I guess, if you're watching the show in the eye of a 6yo (Hans) and a 3yo (Ivan) I'll looking at it in awe, excitement and delight. Squeal Superflagilisticexpealidaceous!

I didn't get the lower box seats, it's a bit above our budget. I'm starting to feel the weight of having more than 1 kid. You have to budget!! Imagine if we need to buy tickets for all three kids, and then the 2 of us. That's x5 for every cost.
So, Upper box seats this time.

Every generation has it's own Disney Star character. In my generation, except of course, for the classics like Mickey/Minnie, Donald/Daisy, Goofy/ Pluto, the biggies were Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. In Hans' time (that's only about 3 years ago), the favorites were Ariel & Flounder (Little Mermaid), Simba & Mufasa (Lion King). Today, all of them have their appearances, but the stars of the show, who gets longer time in the limelight were The Incredibles, Stitch, even the prostitutes of the Pirates of the Carribean, wearing fabulous versions of the corset had equal airtime.

Here are some photos of the event. We had a new SLR camera but my hubby is still grappling how to use it, that should explain the quality of the shots.

Will not be complete without souvenirs toys right? (mahal na madaling masira)

Till 2020 again, disney on ice, please!!
