Last November 29, Saturday, together with my husband and selected mommy bloggers, we witnessed the Hello Kitty Grand Parade at Mall of Asia grounds. I was informed by Ms. Lanie, Head/Founder of Mommy Bloggers Philippines that there will be a VIP Kiddie Party happening first at TGIFriday’s which is located at Seaside Boulevard at the end of Mall of Asia before the main event.
We arrived at the venue before 4pm and the staffs are still preparing so we opted to roam around the place. They prepared candy buffet, light meals for the guests and media and a live DJ.
Super Gwapong DJ
I’m so happy to finally meet some mommy bloggers - Mommy Lally of Lally's Reflections and Mommy Jem of ESuperMommy
New Playmate. Rhian with Mila (Daughter of Mommy Paulline)
Aside from mommy bloggers, there are also celebrities in the pre-event party. Fortunately, I was able to took photos with Venice Bektas, daughter of Ms. Ruffa Gutierrez.
Then, all VIP guests were escorted at our seats. We were lucky to be seated at the 2nd row, talagang dun kami umupo kasi angstroller ni bagets nakaharang pag sa harap kami. Around 6pm, the parade started. For this year, Hello Kitty and other beloved characters such as Keroppi, Little Twin Stars, Badtz-Maru, My Melody and many more will spread joy and happiness for fans of any age. The 12 colorful Sanrio mascot floats, which depict Christmas celebrations around the world, will also be accompanied by a parade of mascots, dancers and performers to add to the fun!
The Grand Festival of Lights motorcade will be held every Saturday until Christmas day. The parades, which will start at 5:30 p.m., will begin from the North Arcade and end at the SM MOA By the Bay with a big bang via a grand fireworks display.
My husband and I really enjoyed the event. Sayang tulog ang anak ko the whole parade. Huhu. But overall, ang sarap palang masama sa VIP. Hehe. Thanks Mommy Bloggers Philippines and SM for the one of a kind experience.
