Ola! I’m currently preparing for a presentation next Saturday, and I’m already tired. Blogging break muna.
Anyway, our super duper short & light UPCAT review season ended last week. To mark that finally we are on vacation mode, Randy made last minute plans to go to Clark/Angeles. Raviv had been saying he wanted to go back to Dinosaurs Island and to go swimming. So Randy tasked me to book at Fontana Hot Spring Leisure Parks & Casino. More about Fontana in a separate blogpost. For the meantime, i-feature muna natin ang Ravivong Bata and his outfit.
We arrived at Clark at around 9 a.m. Since it was still too early to check-in our villa at Fontana, we proceeded to Dinosaurs Island. Look at how excited and “nasa mood” Raviv was, despite the long travel:
Ain’t he the cutest?!? And allow me point out the obvious: his shirt was just perfect for this trip! Kebs nang long-sleeves at pinawisan siya! Basta dinosaur! Or should I say, dino-snoar?
But it wasn’t just his shirt that was in the theme. Notice that he’s carrying a backpack, too. We don’t usually make him carry a bag, but this one’s an exception, because he loves his bag so much. Take a look:
Raviv’s whole ensemble made him so much more excited. So of course, here are the outfit details:
- long-sleeved blue shirt: Debenham’s Blue Zoo
- mustard shorts: Rustan’s Kiddos
- sandals: Chicco
- abaca hat: from a store at Festival Mall
- bag: Lily & Tucker “Danny” bag
At first, I did not like to return to Dinosaurs Island. We were here last year and frankly, I wasn’t so impressed. But in fairness, they made some improvements. In fact, the Brain Train teachers who accompanied us expressed how much fun they had!
Because aside from the “moving dinosaurs”…
This dinosaur at Dinosaurs Island spews water! The challenge was to go beside it without getting wet. 🙂
…and the “dancing live dinosaur”…
Even though the human legs sticking out like sore thumb constantly reminded us that this was just a mascot, still we couldn’t help but feel a twinge of shock everytime this dinosaur came near us.
Aaaaaand, hindi namin kinaya nung nag-headstand siya! Hahahaha!
…new attractions at Dinosaurs Island like the 7D theater (additional P100/head/additional attraction)
We watched “Rollercoaster”. This was actually pretty much like the 5D Raviv and I have seen at SM; Randy said this was a lot more enjoyable than Rialto at Enchanted Kingdom. In fairness, it was thrilling. Napaos kami sa kakasigaw.
…and the “safari” were entertaining. While on the “safari train”, the dinosaur mascots would come out, bang their heads on your train car and try to reach for you. Sigaw-na-may-halong-tawa galore kami! Trite and karnabal-ish, yes. But still entertaining.
As we were about to leave Dinosaurs Island, Raviv said, “This is the best vacation ever!” Of course we knew this wasn’t, but hearing him say it made us feel how refreshing it is to be with a child. In fact, our companions said this “field trip” was one for the books, thanks to Raviv’s natural flair for comedy and contagious excitement.
