Christmas Forest @ Eastwood City

family, Feast and Festivities Add comments

When we were kids, our father and mother used to bring us in Araneta Center in Cubao to watch the lighting of the biggest Christmas Tree. They would also bring us to watch COD (Christmas on Display). COD used to be set up on a veranda where Save More in Cubao now stood. I remember my father used to carry us on his shoulder for us to get a view of the show. Today, Christmas On Display is now seen every Christmas season at Greenhills Shopping Center.

Last Christmas (2012) we didn’t get to see COD and we were not able to visit Meralco’s Liwanag Park due to our busy schedule. Instead we decided to visit Christmas Forest in Eastwood City. We decided to go there because it is near our place. There are number of restaurants we can go for dinner. There is tiangge. There is a little park where Nonet can play.

Eastwood City is just 10-minutes away from where we live via jeepney, if there is no traffic. If there is a moderate traffic jam, the travel may take about 20 minutes. We arrived there at around 6PM. We thought that it was quite early for dinner. We decided to go directly to their Christmas Forest which was setup in City Walk. I am familiar with Eastwood since I have been working there since 2003. :)

Nonet loves animals and she enjoyed taking a lot of pictures with them. We also loved the idea of snow in the forest. :) The tall Christmas trees of different shade looked alive with the bright colors. The little cottage with a deer in front of it was an attraction, too. It was really fun! :)

After enjoying our stay at Christmas Forest, we crossed the street going to Eastwood Mall. There Nonet found different kiddie rides that she’d like to try. She settled on riding a little horse which she can move around the park. It was really like she’s riding a horse! :) She enjoyed it so much! We stayed a bit in the park to watch the dancing fountain, too.

At around 8PM we ate our dinner at Pancake House. I really love their fried chicken! Pau, Nonet and I enjoyed their fried chicken while Patty and mama enjoyed Pesto and Carbonara, respectively. :)

We all enjoyed our family’s Christmas date. Papa may not be physically around to join us in our date, but I believe that he is with us, in our hearts. :)

Ciao! :)
