ICYMI: This year’s Wanderland Music & Arts Festival has been rescheduled in response to the city government’s instructions regarding safety precautions against the COVID-19 threat. Here’s the official announcement from Wanderland:

 

Sayang, but we understand the risk, though! If you’re one of the many music lovers who have already booked their plane tickets and hotel accommodations and can’t secure refunds, hugs! Since naka-book ka na naman, why not make the most out of your stay in the PH capital? While we eagerly wait for refund instructions and rescheduled dates, there are still other worthwhile activities you can enjoy around (or near!) the metro.

Drop by the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

It just so happens that the annual Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is happening on the same weekend at San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite—just a few hours outside of Manila. Aside from watching hot air balloons of all shapes and designs, visitors can also try paragliding (parang CLOY lang ang peg, except for the crash landing part!), attend aviation seminars, and witness the sunrise and sunset. Gates will open at 4:30 a.m and tickets start at P500/day.

Watch a musical.

You came to the metro for good music, and good music you shall get—even if it’s in a slightly different form and genre. The international production of the famous musical Matilda is currently in town for the first time and will only run for a limited time, so take this chance to catch it while you can. Shows will be staged at the Theater at Solaire in Parañaque and tickets are for sale at ticketworld.com.ph.

Go on a night tour around Intramuros.

If you’re up for a little history education, the Intramuros Administration has decided to open the dungeon at Intramuros to the public! The dungeon inside the walled city is one of the country’s historic landmarks for being a crucial place for torture during World War II. It also served as Jose Rizal’s prison before his public execution. The dungeon is open to the public from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day and entrance fee is part of the entire Fort Santiago entrance fee, which costs P75 for adults and P50 for students, senior citizens, and PWDs.

P.S. On March 8, 2020, entrance to Fort Santiago, Casa Manila Museum, and Baluarte de San Diego are free for all female visitors! The initiative is a partnership between the Philippine Commission on Women and the Intramuros Administration in celebration of Women’s Month.

Some safety precautions against COVID-19

While we want to take advantage of our stay in the metro and make the most out of our weekend, it’s still important to observe precautionary measures in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. Here are some health reminders from the World Health Organization’s website:

  • Wash your hands regularly.
  • Maintain at least a one-meter distance from other people, especially those are coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose to avoid picking up viruses.
