An Easter Spectacle at Pan Pacific

Last Sunday was  an Easter  celebration  kids had anticipated.  Hotels in the metro  all  warmed up and prepped up in preparation for this day.    So why wouldn't we celebrate, in fact,  why don't we  celebrate  it everyday as we rise up in the  break of dawn.   Why?  Here is why...

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
Matthew 28:5-7 NASB

Yes  Easter day is a commemoration of  the Lord's risen day.   He doesn't die every year and  rises from the dead three days after every year.   It happened once and  He paid it all once.  

And I am just so happy, elated even  to be invited  to celebrate it with my kids at  the first and only  hotel in the country  that has  the finest  Butler  services,  Pan Pacific Manila.    Parents came  excited as much as their kids were,   and  we were all in for  a treat, which made us adults  became like children for a day.   Let my pictures tell you how the afternoon was.
Right before we entered,  we were greeted warmly and goodie bags were to welcome everyone
The stage adorned colorfully geared-uo for the Eggs-travagant Carnival theme
Charming dining setup, where we all sat on a cushy and tables lowered so kids are more comfortable and relaxed
My daughter Danica paused for the face to be painted

Kids and adults alike had their turns on the face painting spot which had faces livened up with colors and glitters while we enjoy more fun treats.

Giant castle and bouncy house inflatables

Kids  wandered around for the game booths provided which was made more exciting with prizes
We were kept entertained all afternoon with balloon arts, parlor games and magic shows
Spongebob, Patrick Star and the whole Bikini Bottom gang were there and so with  Noah and his animal friends

And then there's the buffet.  The ticket called for a kiddie snack buffet but hefty enough even for adults.    On our plate are hotdogs on sticks, chicken drumsticks, and spaghetti.
If you think the party ended there, wait till you see the other pictures below.

Each children experienced being inside a gigantic bubble.
 Then on to the highlight of the afternoon treat, the Egg-citing "egg-hunting."   Everyone frantic about finding the eggs.   The elegant rooms were turned upside-down as each guest searched for that coveted number of eggs to win the special prize.
The prize for the one who had the most number of colored eggs had this bunny couple taken home.
Though most of the kids and parents got dismayed not bagging home the cute baby  rabbits, we all had so much fun.  Thanks to the butlers of  Pan  Pacific who were present, taking care of all the needs we had during the party.   The kids brought home tons of candies, toys and joyful memories from that afternoon and they can't wait for the next Easter celebration! 
What could have been a better  spectacle for the children and the whole family to celebrate  the Lord's Risen day commemoration.
