After we checked in & were able to settle down a bit, the kids got antsy & asked if we could go around & explore Makati before dinner. Akala mo naman ang layo sa probinsya namin diba? ;)) Makati is only 30 minutes away from our home -without traffic, but since we mostly stay in our part of the South, we don’t often set foot in Makati. So the kids were excited to explore & spend their christmas GCs from their ninang Marina! :P
Away from our comfort zone into the busy, bustling Makati, kapit-kamay talaga ang mga bagets. Baka may mawala hahaha!!! This scene really warmed my heart though. How they love each other & take care of each other. Especially their baby sister. They did this all on their own, without my prodding. I’m such a blessed mom for them to get along so well & really love each other. I quickly whipped out my camera to document this moment. I almost cried happy tears in the middle of the mall. This will forever be ingrained in my memory. <3
They were finally able to brows sunnies in the popular sunglass store.
Sunnies by Charlie was founded in 2013 in response to the need for quality eyewear at a reasonable cost. A collaborative effort between four friends, the team behind the brand includes Eric Dee Jr., Bea Soriano, Georgina Wilson and Martine Cajucom. Sunnies draws inspiration from the 60’s and 70’s with a modern twist. The aesthetic is vintage-inspired with the mid-century color stories and the campaigns utilize guerrilla style photography shot mainly on film. Already celebrated as a trend savvy sunglass destination, Sunnies offers curated eyewear to suit the ever-changing tastes and moods of the contemporary market, all within an affordable price range.
Their dad was in a particularly good mood (nakalibre kasi sa hotel) & indulged them in a bit of christmas shopping. The kids were so happy with this pleasant surprise from their usually ma”K”unat dad that they squeezed him extra hard! :P
We made sure to include the Ayala Triangle Gardens spectacular holiday display of dancing lights and sounds in our 3-day itinerary. This will only be until the end of the month so you still have time to experience it.
Ayala Triangle Gardens Lights & Sounds Show Schedule: Nov. 20 – Dec. 31
Watch the lights come to life in Ayala Triangle Gardens every 30 minutes from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The spectacle set to Christmas medleys is said to feature 800,000 colored LED bulbs, which are connected with 45,000 meters of cabling, and some 500,000 digital channels.
Taking selfies :)
Where other siblings can’t take the sight of each other, I love how mine are each other’s best friends & that they enjoy each other’s company. I can never say it enough. I’m so blessed to have such great kids! <3
How I wish I brought a better camera! <!–3
