We treat our son if he did well in school, he doesn’t need to be on overall top or top in class in order to receive something. As long as we know that he did his best and we see the improvement every grading, he deserves a treat.
Two months ago, we received his card and we saw the gold eagle seal. In our school, you feel proud if you have gold eagle seal because it means you have high grades. Bonus na lang if may top, after one week I also learned that he was one of the top 10 in their class.
So I was thinking of what to give to him, he was asking for a toy but I said no. Then while browsing my newsfeeds, I saw the Kidzania Manila post. Companion can work with misters or misses on September 12, 2016. It was “Eid Mubarak” holiday but they only have one shift and weekday ticket price. Yey for that.
I asked my son if he likes to go to Kidzania, yun na lang treat namin and he said yes. It was also our chance to experience working at Kidzania. Aminin, we don’t have this nung bata tayo.
The following day, off we went to Kidzania Manila. I was a bit worried because I already saw the long lines, baka wala na kami slot. But thank God, we were able to buy tickets. This was our second visit to Kidzania Manila, last time he was able to do 16 activities.

As I mentioned, mom or dad can play with their kid. I messaged Kidzania Manila FB page to know what are the jobs that companion can join. But they did not reply, as in deadma until now wala reply. (seen lang) Lol.
Anyway, when we bought the ticket at the counter we saw the poster of it so I took a photo and for your information, here are the jobs.
Ground Floor Level
Art and Design Academy
Car Design and Dealership
Hospital - Baby Care Training Center
Clean Energy Center
Note: Every child visitor may be joined by one companion at a time.
Companion do not spend or earn Kidzos
Uniforms are for child visitors 4-14yrs old.
I guess, this is only available every weekend/holiday. Just call #kidzaniamanila for more information.
Since we have Kidzos, we did not encash the check and we went straight to Mezzanine Floor. We fell in line at 1. Clean Energy Center so my husband and son can work. Sarado pa nga nung pumila kami hanggang sa may sumunod na sa amin. Nung nagpapasok na, hindi niya binilang hubby ko, so I asked her.
Me: Di ba, pwede magjoin ang companion?
Staff: Yes po, pero mas priority po namin kids.
I was disappointed because that is one of the reasons kung bakit ko sinama si hubby. So balewala din pala yung pagsama ko kay hubby if he cannot join the activity. Like I said, holiday + may nagfield trip so aasa pa ba ko? Companion fee is not cheap, P630 rin yun. Anyway, wala naman ko magagawa kundi mag-move on. Hehehe!
And because of that, kinalimutan ko na yung list of jobs na pwede mom or dad. We went straight to 2. Coca-Cola Bottling Plant so my son can make his own Coke. Click here for the video
Then we looked for establishments na konti ang pila, we saw the 3. Lady’s Choice Cooking School. It is part of the jobs that companion can join so since kami ang first ulit sa pila. I immediately asked the staff if makakajoin ba companion and she said yes so kahit may mga sumunod na sa pila. He included my husband. Thank God, may napala din ang bayad ko. Hahaha!
But this is the first and last job that he was able to join. Good thing my husband was there because my son was having a hard time in shaping his sandwiches.
After that, my son encashed his check. No more long lines at the bank.
Then we went back to the Mezzanine Floor and he worked at 4. Jack & Jill Snack Factory, 5. Magnolia Ice Cream Factory, 6. Purefoods R&D Center, 7. Cream O Snack factory. Click here for the video
The good thing about the paid activities is you can take home your product like the coke, sandwiches, chip, ice cream, cookie and hotdog.
We’re running out of Kidzos so I told my son that he needs to earn Kidzos so he worked at 8. Urban Garden. While he was working, my husband bought our lunch and sakto pagtapos namin, nakabili na rin siya. Click here for the video
We had a quick lunch. Then my son worked at 9. Pascual Product Lab. Click here for the video
We went to the ground floor to look for other jobs. My son worked in 10. House Painting 11. Window Washing and 12. CSI & Police Station.
My son wanted to work pa but I told him, closed na Kidzania. Indeed, when you are inside Kidzania, you will never notice the time because you are enjoying the different activities. We forgot to get ATM again.
We still have a long list of jobs to try, among the jobs that my son did, he did not like the Window Washing job, hirap na hirap siya maglinis. Hehehe! Now he knew, it is not easy to clean the house.
