Kids Happy Time Playground

Report cards are out and the kids did well. They deserve a treat! What more can a kid ask for? Playtime! Afraid of the huge influx of people in the usual malls, hubby decided to find a place where there will likely be lesser kids.

He found Kids Happy Time Playground which is located in Venice Grand Canal Mall!

And the best thing about it? Metrodeal is selling a voucher for it! Upon checking the availability of slots for weekend playtime, we purchased coupons to use.

For Php 249 instead of Php 399 for 3 hours, a kid and an adult companion will be allowed to enter the play area.

The kids had a super fun time doing obstacle courses, sliding, racing and whatever they could think of!

Upon entering, you will be directed to your locker space and this is also where you will leave your shoes. Bring socks so you don’t have to buy from them anymore!

The whole area is Under The Sea Themed, with touches of Pirates of the Carribean.

There is a ball pit!

Some bridges!

For the littler ones.

A racetrack!

A Merry Go Around!

Ball Swings and a trampoline!

Mini Houses.

Building Blocks area.

Some slides and a ball pit!

They also have a Sand Pit but with plastic seeds instead of real sand.

Aside from the play area, a child can have different creative activities too! But with fees!

It’s nice for kids 8 yrs old below. The space is big enough. I like it because it’s not crowded. The place is padded too!

A fun way to let the kids be themselves, run around and be free!

Be sure to check Metrodeal first before heading there and to also call first to ask for Metrodeal Voucher schedule.

Our kids deserve to have fun and it shouldn’t be expensive! ūüĎĆ

Voucher Review – Metrodeal – Kid’s Workshop

When: June 14, 2013

Where: 2nd Flr, Shoppesville Arcade, Greenhills Shopping Center

What: Unlimited Play Pass

Price: Php 149.00 Valued at Php 385.00 / savings Php 236.00

Groupon Site: Metrodeal / Deal Here

Daphne enjoyed going to the Kid’s Workshop. ¬†She got so excited she made a mess! ¬†Read about it here!

She didn’t even want to go home! ¬†The Ate there needed to turn off the lights, so that Daphne will see they are closing already!

I like the Kid’s Workshop! ¬†It’s bigger than we expected. ¬†It’s not like the other play areas we’ve been to! ¬†Here, a kid can make her imagination go wild. ¬†They can play make believe games with all the things they can do here, not just go jumping!

There are cars (Little Tikes brand) that they can ride and they even have a gasoline station where you can gas up!  photo 1(2)

There’s a kitchen corner ¬† complete with a refrigerator and a cooking station. ¬†It also has plates and other utensils. ¬†The refrigerator has plastic fruits and vegetables.

There’s a ironing board also equipped with an iron, hangers and clothes. ¬†A child can iron her own clothes!

They have an area for art activities too! ¬†It’s too bad there were no more teachers when we were there. ¬†Because it was raining, the teachers went home early. ¬†Could have done a lot of painting! ¬†And I also think that they have sing and dance activities too, like Gymboree Style – Parachute, if there were teachers and some more kids around. ¬†There’s only 1 kid that time, and she’s about 1 year and a half. ¬†Not a suitable playmate for Daphne. ¬†Oh, there are also wooden rocking horses they can climb on!

There’s an area too with the usual pool with balls! ¬†Beside this, there’s a little house and a tunnel with soft material! ¬†In this area, there were bookshelves with books and some puzzles!

On the 2nd floor, there are computer gaming stations.  Beside the gaming station is the reading area!  A lot of books fill the book shelves!  A little further down the aisle, you will see a mini room with 2 lego tables.  On the shelf near it are 2 big boxes of blocks.

For the hyper kids who want some physical activity, there are 2 slides and a hanging bridge! ¬†There is also a barrass where you can go monkeying around! ¬†They also have an anchor wheel you can spin if you think you’re a pirate! (just like what Daphne did) ¬†There’s also a mini rock climbing ramp and a rope ladder!

Overall, I would rate Kid’s Workshop 8 out of 10! ¬†The area is really conducive for children’s physical and mental activity. ¬†However, the 2 points will go to lack of safety foams for the areas with wood material. ¬†Like under the hanging bridge and the rock climbing ramp. ¬†They should put safety foams so that kids can’t bump their heads there. ¬†At the very least, when they do bump their heads, it’s soft and not as hard as a wood!

I had 3 hours worth of salon pampering! I love my new hair, my new hair color Рmy new look!  This deal is so worth it!

I chose this salon because it’s¬†just a 5 to 10 minute drive from our house.¬† Being a mom to a 1 and a half month old baby, I couldn’t go somewhere far.¬† I took the risk of not knowing if the hairstylist was good enough.¬† All I wanted¬†was to have my hair cut in a new style and have it colored.

I knew that the salon’s newly opened.¬†¬†We always pass by it when we’re on our way home from Greenhills.¬†¬†When I called yesterday to make my appointment, the one who answered my call made it¬†easy.¬† I called up¬†earlier today¬†to change my¬†schedule into a¬†later¬†hour, afraid that I¬†might¬†be scratched off my appointment.¬† Again, the¬†one who answered didn’t make it hard for me.

I was really excited when I left the house.  I have with my Itouch a picture of the hairstyle I want.  I have in my mind the hair color I want.  When I got to the salon, I was greeted with smiles. The owner was on her way out, but she also gave a sweet smile.  

¬†I gave my voucher and showed my ID.¬† After that, I was asked by the senior stylist what color I prefer.¬† He suggested to mix 2 shades, and I loved how it turned out.¬† Not so loud blonde, but not so dull brown.¬† It’s just the right mix.

After choosing my hair color, I showed him the hairstyle I want.¬† He agreed and he asked one of the staff to shampoo my hair.¬† He cut my hair slowly and tediously, I’d think.¬† He made sure that the ends of my hair are cut evenly.¬† I liked his style actually.¬† We proceeded with hair color.¬† Applied the dye in 2 steps.¬† First, only the “body” of my hair was covered.¬† Second, he applied all over the hair till the “roots.”¬† Waited for around an hour for this to finish.¬† After this, my hair was rinsed, shampooed and applied treatment.¬† Came with head massage also.¬† Chit chatted for awhile with the one massaging my hair.¬† I got back to my seat and my hair was blow dried.¬† He made the final trimmings and voila! I love my new look!

my new look

I would definitely recommend this salon.¬† Not only do they have a¬† nice and clean salon, they also have¬†friendly staff who provides good service.¬† It’s worth all the¬†moolah¬†you’ll spend.¬†Stars for them? 5 of 5

PS. Had to pay additional Php 100.o0 for the hair cut, because what’s included in the deal was only a trim.¬† This was agreed upon before we started.¬† Php 549.00 + Php 100.00¬†= Php 649.00, the amount is still a steal.¬†

Voucher Review – MetroDeal – Fatboy’s Pizza

When:  September 24, 2011
Where:¬†Fatboy’s Pizza¬†
What: 2 Delicious and Mouthwatering Supersize 14 Inch Pizzas Price: Php 295.00 valued at Php 590.00 / savings: Php 295.00

Groupon Site: MetroDeal / Deal Here

This is a long overdue review! Sorry for that!


Fatboy’s Pizza is thin-crusted, and it’s really fully loaded with different toppings! We began to love this pizza since we first took a bite because of its savoury flavor! It can even compete with this pizza brand which has nothing but bread on its pan!

With Fatboy’s, you will not be shortchanged! with toppings that is!

And it’s so easy to claim, we claimed ours at the Puregold Jr Branch in Bocobo Street. When you get there, all you have to do is show your voucher and order what flavor of pizza you want (that’s part of the deal) and wait until the pizza bakes! Hot and fast and easy! What more can you ask for?

Even without the deal, the price is really worth it! So what are you waiting for? Go buy now! ūüôā

This deal gets a perfect score from me! 5 out of 5!

At last, I was able to complete 1 album! With the help of my brother in law, Tristan and my husband, Dennis of course! The album consists of Daphne’s 1st out of the country travel! To Daddy and Mommy’s favorite destination, Hong Kong!

We subdivided the tasks – I chose the pictures to be included. Tristan did the layout for the album. Dennis did some layout also and finalized everything to be sent out to Fotosnaps.

Now, we patiently await the outcome! I can’t wait to see the actual album!

Will be back for some pictures! and hopefully the 2nd album!

Till then! ūüôā


The album turned out so well that we bought and used Fotosnaps again. To date, we have 3 albums from them.

Voucher Review – Metrodeal – Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta

When: November 13, 2011
Where: Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta / Mall of Asia San Miguel by the Bay
What: Crispy Pata and Pork Sisig with a bucket of Coors Light
Price: Php 455.00 valued at Php 918.00 / savings: Php 463.00

Groupon Site: Metrodeal / Deal Here

This is by far the best deal we have gotten ever! Never mind the 1 hour wait!  Never mind that we were never answered in our phone calls!  Never mind that we were situated just beside the bar where no table can be seen before!

The yummy and crispy pata and the tasty sisig made it all worth it!  The team of the friendliest staff was a plus for us husband and wife!

The long line was due to¬†the Filipinos’ Manana Habit, which in Tagalog is “mamaya na!” The voucher will be expiring on the 15th! That is simply why the queue was 3 pages of yellow pad today! When we got there, we were asked to register in that yellow pad! Told to wait by the ever smiling receptionists.

It is going to be a long wait, we know, so we strolled by the boardwalk first.¬† It is a breezy evening too! We’re cool to wait, literally! We got back to the waiting area and we happily seated ourselves and even took a picture!

When it was our turn, we were seated beside the bar. The crispy pata was immediately served. It does look good and crunchy!

And then the bucket of Coors Light Beer.

And then the pork sisig. I don’t eat sisig but I did have a taste tonight because D told me it was good.

Oh! The food was really so yummy! Look at us husband and wife, smiling because of our food!

And here’s another picture of me totally devouring the crispy pata! Sarap to the bones!

We really enjoyed this deal.  Everything was worth it. 

Too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture of the friendliest staff I have ever met! Even though the place was jampacked and they were uber tired already, you can still see them smiling at you! Now, that’s what I call good service!

This definitely gets a perfect score! 5 out of 5 stars for me!

Till our next visit! PS. I already have another voucher! Hehe!
