Enchanted Kingdom: The Magic Stays with You

Way back November 2011, I was given the chance to visit and enjoy an amazing amusement park on my birthday. Together with my family we pack up our bag, foods and things needed in travelling. My sister in law who got the discounted tickets through online. She made a treat with us and we are blessed because finally we will enjoy another day of our life.  Because it was a family day we also expected that there are many excursionists who will go there on that day.

When the night comes, everybody was excited because the entire place was lit up with many lights and you will truly experience the fairy castle you can never imagine. And It was the best scene I've ever seen in my life especially when I tried the Wheel of Fate which was riding the ferris wheel. And if you where at the top it was really amazing and it was awesome because you can see the entire place full of lights. I cannot explained what I feel when I'm on the top looking at the place and you never feel feared or scared because what you can only see was a bright world.

We did not experience all the rides because one day is not enough. They have also fireworks display during weekends and Philippine Holidays which we did not also see because we need to go back to Manila. We had so much fun and it was really unforgettable experienced I ever had.

Here are some photos which I took day and night scene.
