New Year Countdown Activities at the Philippine Arena



The whole family went to Philippine Arena last December 30 to attend the activities for the two-day New Year countdown. There were designated parking spaces for vehicles and visitors were required to ride the shuttle for better traffic flow. The kids enjoyed the carnival and the rides were 50% cheaper as compared to the ones at the “peryahan” (of course, comparing them with Enchanted Kingdom is like comparing apples to oranges!) The goods that were sold at the bazaar were cheaper yet of good quality, I wish I brought more cash!

What I particularly enjoyed was the program at the Philippine Arena with no less than Kathryn Bernardo in an opening number. Kathryn’s charm filled the arena. In my opinion, she and Liza Soberano are the two most beautiful teenage girls of today.

It was nice to see Cita Astals back in her witty old self.

It was good to hear veteran singers like Anthony Castelo and Victor Wood. If my grandmother were alive, she would be happy to see Anthony there because she was a BIG fan!

With the majority of the audience being teen-age girls, it was no wonder why Ruru Madrid received the loudest clap among the performers.

Faith Cuneta was in her best singing element that night.

Regine Angeles was like a life-size doll.

Snooky Serna looked happy.

I look forward to more events like this.
