A day after the successful iBlog5 summit, fifty bloggers were invited by Enchanted Kingdom to experience a tiring yet magical day by participating in the Magicalympics Bloggers Edition!
Initially, I thought we were invited just to test the rides and play like little kiddos inside Enchanted Kingdom. We were a bit surprised when we were divided into different groups. We have this bandana that will represent which group we all belong to. Thank God I belong to the Green Team which is composed of Carl, Alan, Jason, Monique, Monch, Mark, Mark C., Kevin and Louie.
Before everyone went to their designated groups, we all went to the 4D Theater first and ate lunch afterwards. We were asked to go to our respective groups after an hour and we were all ready to rumble LOLz. Let the Magicalympics begin! Woot!
Here’s my detailed Mis-adventures with the Green Team:
- Wheel of Faith – We were tasked to answer twenty questions while enjoying the view at the Ferris Wheel. The questions asked have something to do with the landmarks.
- Flying Fiesta – Now EK wants to stir our minds by letting us sit in the flying chairs. We solved a puzzle after and we succeeded yey!
- Steeplechase Arcade – Videoke Time! We have to sing S.B’s Gold and reach the score of 98. We got 96. Boo.
- Grand Carousel – This is a simple task LOL. They showed us six pictures and we simply need to locate the specific ride indicated on the photo. This activity reminded me of a carousel ride at Star City when I was a little kid were I ended up puking 😐
- Rio Grande – While most of us were ready to get wet, the EK person told us that we will be playing charades. Boo! We were asked to act on the movies Star Wars and 17 Again. We managed to win this time.
- Log Jam – Now we are oh-so-ready to get wet! With plastic cups filled with water placed on our heads, I bet nobody left the specific section of EK with dry clothes. Loved this one though 😀
- Realto – Ok, so we were wet, right? Now, we were tasked to watch a movie at Realto. Brrrrr… It’s Cold in here! I think we answered most of the questions.
- Anchor’s Away – Confession: When our leader Carl told me that I have to stay at the end holding the basket, I got scared. Thanks to Alan and Jason for singing some songs with me while catching tomatoes LOL.
- Dodgem – Bump Cars. This is a memorable game for me because I ended up hurting my chest and I suffered for almost two weeks. Oh well, at least we were able to beat the time 😀
- Junior Kart – We were expecting to do some go-karting here, but much to our dismay, we were asked to strip off some of our clothes and accessories for the longest line. Well, not really dismayed especially after seeing some of my blogger friends stripping just to win LOL 😀
With all the effort, our team was declared as the 4th placer and our prize is a magic wand. 😀
After competing with co-bloggers, I decided to hangout with my boys namely Winston (my nyok who loves his new baby much), Van (my lil bro), Bryan (labtim LOL), Jason (my pakner!), Jhelo (parelax ka, teh?!), Aethen (Da Bully LOL) and Ed (basa ang…). We ended up getting wet at Rio Grande, screaming our hearts out at Anchor’s Away (no flying tomatoes this time LOL), Wheel of Faith (ang dami naming picture at lahat ng kamera nasa kabila!), Dogdem (more chest pains, please!) and little space shuttle (ok, i forgot the real name of this one LOL). The most memorable moment for me though was when we sat down to watch a puppet show for kids. We were sitting there like little kiddos while the real kids were standing at the side hehehe 😀 Oh, the fireworks moment is also special for some reason.
Though all of the participants were tired, I can say that this is an experience that I will never forget. There’s nothing wrong with acting like a little kid playing with your usual playmates in a magical place.
When we arrived in Manila, Winston, Van, Bryan, Jason and I had the chance to talk to AJ at North Park. This time, we talked over dinner as ‘realistic’ individuals. In short, as grown-ups LOL. Thanks again to AJ for the treat! 😀
