Watch your Favorite Disney Stars LIVE in Disney On Ice

We grew up thinking that damsels in distress always get the attention. I am happy that in the recent years, women are depicted as strong and soft at the same time. I see these qualities in my favorite Disney princesses: Merida, Mulan, Rapunzel, and Elsa & Anna.

Merida, with her ball of red curly hair is feisty but have a soft hear for her family. The same is true for Mulan. What I also like about Rapunzel, who was depicted also in the Tangled movie is that she may be strong-willed, yet she follows her mom’s advice. And who doesn’t admire the strong characters of Elsa and Anna of Frozen?

That is why, I can’t wait to see Disney on Ice live in the coming days.

Disney on Ice presents Magical Ice Festival

From December 25 until January 3 at the Big Dome (aka Smart Araneta Coliseum), Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival featuring magical moments from across the kingdom with a superstar lineup of Disney royalty. Think of Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, and never-before-seen characters Anna and Elsa.

“We are taking a fresh new spin on how we’re presenting the Disney stories. We are weaving together the four worlds of royal sisters Anna and Elsa, Ariel, Belle and Rapunzel as they each embark on their own epic journey,” says Producer Juliette Feld.

You can even sing and dance to popular Disney tunes with interactive and playful segments for kids to be led by Disney superstars Mickey and Minnie, and join Anna as she fearlessly sets off on an epic journey, together with Kristoff and reindeer Sven, to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in perpetual winter.

In Beauty and the Beast’s “Be Our Guest,” the theatrical elements of the glitzy napkins and silverware costumes will astound audiences. “The costumes are designed to emphasize the overwhelming amount of table décor that appears in the movie. The napkins unfold to increase their size and the forks tower over the heads of the performers. This is a big moment for Belle; the costumes need to reflect that,” says Costume Designer Cynthia Nordstrom.

The challenge of live shows is how to capture the scenes truthfully. Lighting will play a crucial role in giving the overall production a truly magical feel.

“The colors really pull you into the different worlds of the princesses, but it’s how the lights are arranged that command your attention when the characters are performing their acts. For example, when the Daughters of Triton are introduced, the lighting individually highlights each of them. Your eyes follow the spotlights,” says Lighting Designer Sam Doty.

Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival features an astounding display of creativity and talent, with spellbinding Disney stories we have all come to enjoy and love!

Lights and Sound Show

Watch the lights come to life in Ayala Triangle Gardens every 30 minutes from 6:00 to 9:00 PM

Finally, I got to watch this year’s Lights & Show at the Ayala Triangle Gardens.

This year, the Enchanting Lights & Sound Show is created by award-winning lighting designer Voltaire de Jesus and musical composers from Liquid Post, Mikey Amistoso and Jazz Nicholas.

Last night, OPM (Original Pilipino Music) songs were played as the lights come to life. It’s another spectacular show you shouldn’t miss this Christmas season.


This Lights and Sound Show got featured in CNN, “The Philippines shows the world how to celebrate Christmas.”

Time to Put Up Christmas Decors

The air is cooler and the night is longer. This means Christmas is just around the corner (Oh and they rhyme, too!). 😀

Another reminder that Christmas is really coming are the abundance of Christmas decors in the malls and on the side streets. Christmas lanterns are already lighted in some areas and in other houses in our village.

It is also during this time that I think of a Christmas theme for my house decors. What color should I have this Christmas?

I was looking around the house last night, thinking of what decors to put, when I noticed that our rugs need replacement badly. They do not only look old, but they also look used with the hems already showing signs of disarray.

I made a note to myself to check out area rugs over the weekend. With the sale season on, also, I’m sure I’ll find cheap rugs that will look good along with my Christmas decors.

Now, what is a good color this year?
