Christmas Get Together 2012 Part 1 - Residence Inn Zoo

It has been a tradition of our group to hold a get together every Christmas so we could give our presents to each other and to the kids. Since, we are all busy year-round, Christmas is the only time we could bond and catch up with each others lives.

It's been 10 years since we all graduated from college and our friendship kept on going stronger each year and our group even larger with the addition of the kids.

For 2012, we decided to ditch the annual MOA bowling event and went to Tagaytay instead. It's a refreshing change of scenery and all the kids enjoyed the trip, even the kids-at-heart. :)

First stop - Residence Inn Zoo
Since we came in three separate vehicles, we decided to meet up at Residence Inn Zoo. This is only a small zoo but there are enough animals, reptiles and birds to keep the kids busy. We availed the promo which included entrance to Residence Inn Zoo, Animal/Magic Show and entrance to Paradizoo. The promo is priced at Php 299 per adult and Php 249 per kid, 3 ft and above.

Johan loved the animals! He kept pointing at them, naming each one and even mimicking the sound that each animal makes.

Here are some of animals that can been seen inside the Residence Inn Zoo:

We toured the zoo for like 30 minutes then we went to the activity area for the animal/magic show. Johan cried when the snake came out of the basket and kept on pulling his dad saying, "Lesgo!" He just relaxed when the snake was put away and the magic show began. Every time a magic trick was completed, he clapped his hands and shouted, "More, more!"

"Ady, lesgo!"
Funny man!
Here he is finally enjoying the show

The show lasted for almost an hour and although there were a few lapses in grammar and diction by some of the talents, it was altogether a huge hit with the kids.
