18 years & counting – ENCHANTED KINGDOM


I could not imagine that anybody can come up nor duplicate a place like Enchanted Kingdom in the Philippines. I think, nothing can come close. Leisure parks or Amusement parks are usually classified if themed. Enchanted Kingdom is actually a large-scale theme park and the only World-class theme park in the country. It is meant to capture the young and old alike especially the young at heart. Next month, EK is celebrating its’ 18th birthday. 18 years of providing joy, magic and enchanting memories to their internal and external guests.

Allow me to share with you my “3 winks” looking back with my heart smiling at those years. Some of my happiest years occured inside the walls of this colossal park. Both as a Cast Member and as a Guest. Please take a look!

PS

All things are meant to be.

Attached photo is a newspaper ad reflecting a job position that I eyed at Enchanted kingdom back in 1997.

EK ad..March 23, 1997
EK ad..March 23, 1997

For some unknown reason, I opted to apply (and got hired) by another company which I found at the back of the ad. I cringed, finding this out. And realized, it was all meant to be.

Ergo ad...March 23, 1997
Ergo ad…March 23, 1997

Both places have mold me into the person which I am now. At my best. As always. (–,)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
