Last Saturday, we were at the Alabang Town Center to spend time with the family. Our two girls were on their usual giddy self - as soon as they found out that we were going out, they took out their favorite dresses and did most of the preparation.
Parking was very bad as expected. We have a secret spot that we go to that seldom gets crowded mainly because you need a long walk to get to the entrance of the mall. That day, our secret was found out. It was filled except for one small parking area that our little car can squeeze in.
So we had lunch, walked around and looked at toys at Rustan's Alabang. Did I tell you they have one of the best Christmas nooks in the country?
The day in ATC will not be complete without playing near the water fountains.
We had to get new clothes for them because they were soaking wet. My little girl decided it was about time to get rid of her favorite Crocs.
Early evening, Lea Salonga, the Kindred Voices with Gerard Salonga and the Philharmonic Orchestra had a free concert at the atrium. It was too bad I didn't hear about it because I could get reserve seats courtesy of the Ayala A Card.
I caught the first song before my little ball of fire decided to run to the nearest Time Zone. I went after her, panicking because I couldn't find her anywhere. I found her battling Lea Salonga's vocal prowess - Nemo was crying her lungs out while she stands right next to her Dad.
I missed my chance of watching Lea Salonga's concert again in the process. My husband and I went home with sore legs (from all the running after the kids) and headaches that lasted all night long. The kids? They were awake until the wee hours of the morning.
