What can we do to keep our kids pre-occupied this summer? Well, we search for summer activities that are both worthwhile and in my case inexpensive. Ayala Malls have great activities throughout the summer and this time around with the launch of “PLAY” we can expect a summer of musical live shows, rugby, a game fest and more.
Kianna and I attended the launch at Glorietta where we got a peek of what to expect. I don’t have as much time as I’d like to spend with my kids so events like these are ways to spend time with them. This time around Kianna and I had a day together. The funny thing is we had actually had an argument the day before. As a person one of my challenges is my pride, as a mother though I try and put that aside. I was happy that at the end of the day Kianna and I were more than okay.
To get to the main event floor we had to go through a fun inflatable maze. This is so popular right now and it was fun to do even if it was on land. The place was decorated like a child’s dream. With colorful installations and fun table top decorations.
Sam Oh hosted the event and we learned a little more about what to expect with “PLAY” time.
