My McDo Party Photos

Birthday parties in McDonald's are almost always for kids. However, for this year's joint celebration of January and February celebrants in my Victory Group, the organizers decided to hold a McDonald's party.

Here are some photos from that memorable and happy event.

Rainforest Park at The Rave in Pasig City

Because we were quite bored of the usual mall stuff week in and week out, and because we don't have enough time to go all the way to Tagaytay last weekend, we decided to try dropping by the Rainforest Park in Pasig City. We've been hearing, seeing and passing by it many times whenever we were in the area but never occurred to us to go inside. Anyway, last weekend we went.

First impression, it was crowded. Well it was a Sunday afternoon so what do we expect. There was no entrance fee so of course it should be crowded. The guys manning the ticketing table for the various attractions weren't as cooperative and approachable as they should. They're the first staff members visitors would encounter and they're just plain uninterested in answering guest queries. Because of that, I felt like we weren't welcome at all. I can only imagine what the impression of balikbayans and foreign tourists could be.

Overall, the place wasn't well-maintained. The play area was dusty and rusty. My 7 year old kid wont even dare touch the monkey bars even if I know she wanted to play. The streets were full of garbage, candy wrappers and chips wrappers all around. Most attractions require a fee (affordable at P10-P20 per person), but it wasn't worth it.

There not much food stalls and the few that were there don't offer much. Anyway, it's just a nice thought to know that people in Pasig and neighboring towns have a place to roam around and relax for free. That's the only nice things about this.
