Long work week? Make the most of this payday weekend with some quality family bonding time! Here are a few ideas you can try this July 14 to 16:
Where to go
If you're looking for a chill and relaxing day out with the kids, head to Blue Bay Walk in Pasay. It's basically a spacious park with eating and shopping establishments surrounding the area. There's even a cat cafe! They rent out go-carts and bikes as well for parents and kids looking to cycle around. Bring a picnic baon too because they lend mats for free so you can sprawl on their lawn.
Take the kids somewhere fun this weekend and head to Kidzoona, an indoor play land. Kidzoona play places have kiddie obstacle courses, inflatables, ball pits and areas for imaginative play -- a feature we love. Here kids can pretend to be sushi chefs, ice cream store owners, bakers, doctors and more. Find a list of Kidzoona locations here. Rates start at P300 for 90 minutes of play for both child and parent.
You and the kids won't be arguing about where to eat at The Food Hive, a food park along Visayas Avenue in Quezon City. Choose from a selection of inspired food merchants set in a space that's Instagram-worthy. There's chicken wings from Wingfather and the Fry Mafia, Japanese dishes from Hamaru Yakitori & Sushi, Mexican favorites from La Carnita Modern Mexican Cantina and loads more.
Indulge in an extra special dinner and dine at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila's Spiral. This Friday, July 14, Spiral's chefs will serve a French dinner menu with dishes like Beef Bourguignon and Pan-Seared Foie Gras. A night sky backdrop of fireworks at poolside will top off the evening. It's P3,350 net per person for dinner (worth mentioning: same buffet is P2,650 net per person for lunch on July 14).
The Baby Company is having an All Things Baby Sale! Get up to 50% off on select items. And if you've got a Mom Card, you can get a free Popbrella for a minimum purchase of P3,500. Sale runs until July 31 in all stores.
Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street branch is having an Anniversay Book Sale to celebrate their 10th year anniversary this weekend, July 14 to 16, and on July 28 to 30. Enjoy 20% off on selected reads.
Banana Peel marks its 15th anniversary this year, and they're celebrating with a Flashback Sale every 15th of the month. This means that this July 15, you can grab a pair of their flipflops for just P39! Get to any Banana Peel outlet early because it's only happening from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Love everything Korean, mom? Head to the Korean Product Festival this weekend, July 14 to 16, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, Taguig. There will be K-beauty cosmetic products, all sorts of Korean food, home and lifestyle products, and more. Admission is free.
