  • Learning should never stop — even when it’s summer. The short academic break is when your kids can indulge in their extracurricular activities and develop their natural talents. But if you’re hesitant to enroll your kids in a full course of classes and workshops, have them test the waters with weekend classes where a session usually takes two hours.

    Take for example Lucky Chinatown’s batch of summer programs. It includes coloring and sketching, performing arts, and kiddie combat. There's no pre-registration or enrollment required. You just present a Php1,000-single purchase receipt from any of the mall’s establishments.

    Here’s what’s in store for your kid, starting April 21:
