Children’s Day at Cartoon Network Playground

Where were you on Children’s Day? We had a non-working holiday last Thursday. After having a brunch of “kimchi bokkeumbap” (Hangeul: 김치볶음밥) or kimchi fried rice, we took public transpo to Banpo Hangang Park. It was almost 2 o’clock in the afternoon when we got there and the weather was almost like summer.

Cable channel Cartoon Network sponsored a free playground with bouncing castles, tattoo booth, balloons, blowing bubbles, paper visors and a toy race track. They forgot to offer free snacks ;p

We didn’t give our son any material gift. Also, we didn’t spend much aside from transportation and snacks at the nearby Mini Stop. The line at the convenience store was really long as they only had one register with a barcode scanner. We had so much fun that day and it shows in the pictures below how much my son enjoyed his 4th Children’s Day!

Banpo Hangang Park will also be the venue of this year’s Filipino Migrant’s Day. By that time, the Floating Islands would be open. See you there!

  1. nice pics! it seems obvious that your son enjoyed the day!
    just curious: why you did not buy a (material) present to your boy? was it because you thought there was no need for any OR there was an exact reason for that?

  2. t Betchay, we visited Alex’ uncle last thur. it was only near lotte world. we just dropped by the (manmade?) lake beside it. then went to incheon. i wanted SooAe’s first children’s day to be more special by bringing her somewhere else but we just went to my bil’s house to bring treats to his kids. at least, they were happy to see us, esp. soo ae.. kkk…

  3. watching cartoon network at the cartoon network park! haha! nice park! wish we have more parks in the Phil instead of paying for playgrounds inside the malls…
