Eggziting Easter Sunday at Pan Pacific Hotel Manila

Holy week (also called as Mahal na Araw or Semana Santa) is the time where us Filipinos show our faith by way of prayer and penitence and is celebrated every first week of April. It is the time where we repent and contemplate on the things that we have done. We all have long days off from work or school so we have the liberty to spend it out-of-town or stay at home.

Then came Easter Sunday. Aside from the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts, what we really are celebrating on this day is the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It all gives us hope and another fresh start. :)

It is my very first time to celebrate Easter Sunday and I was so happy to be celebrating it on an event held by Pan Pacific Hotel Manila! :)

This event is mainly for kids together with their parents, and kids-at-heart like us to enjoy! :)

At the entrance, we were greeted with warm smiles from the staff. They also gave us goodie bags filled with sweet treats inside. :)

Inside, it looks very colorful with their carnival theme. The stage looks like this:

There were different game booths inside where kids could win prizes plus playgrounds such as inflatable slides and one where you could jump and bounce. I would love to try that one for my self, but I'm afraid I might deflate it. Boohoo.

An area for face painting is also spotted on one corner of the room :)

I loved their table setting! Several round tables were lowered on the floor with pillows around it for the kids to sit on while watching the show. You'll also feel very relaxed and comfortable while eating your food :)

I was feeling a bit sick that afternoon, but thanks to the wonderful magician who kept us all entertained! Balloon tricks, magic shows, and a couple of other games made the kids (and even us) all very delighted. See, even the puppets were also there to charm us. :)

Believe me, I really wanted to volunteer my self to experience being inside the bubble. Maybe next time, if there's even a next time.

A party would not be complete without......... the FOOD! Appetizing kiddie snacks awaits the guests. These includes the never-ending spaghetti, hotdog-on-sticks, and chicken drumsticks. Yuuuummm! Plus there's an extra sweet treat for the kids: COTTON CANDY! I couldn't recall the last time I ate cotton candy so I grabbed one too! :D
Before the whole party craze ends, they have a special game that comes with a special prize for the kids! No other than..... Easter Egg hunting!! Yay! The person who collected the most number of eggs will win and get to take home the special prize of the day. I'll reveal it a little later though :)

All the kids were very egg-zited as they searched in all corners of the room and even outside just to look for eggs! Kids were scattered everywhere and even their parents happily joined on the hunt! Once the egg hunting was done, two kids were fortunate enough to win and take home the special prize of the day.. which is these cute little white bunnies!! Lucky! :)

Indeed,  this is a fun and memorable way to spend Easter Sunday with your family. But aside from all the fun and games, we must not forget the real essence of this day.
God expects from men something more than at such times, and that it were much to be wished for the credit of their religion as well as the satisfaction of their conscience that their Easter devotions would in some measure come up to their Easter dress.  ~Robert South, Sermons
