I first learned about the Barney Space Adventure Show at Aliw Theater when Benz posted about it in her Facebook account. Ay grabe! Nagpalpitate ako! Anika. Loves. Barney. To. The. Freaking. Max!!!
Right then and there I booked three front row tickets for the Sunday 4pm show.
Ang mahal pala ng mga tickets na ganun mga 'te! But this will be Anika's first theater show and given na si Barney pa yun, hindi na ako nanghinayang. I just prayed that Anika won't get afraid of the real Barney like what happened to her and Jollibee nung birthday niya.
The night before, Alvin and I tried to look for a Barney shirt for her to wear for the show. Grabe. Wala sa SM! Akala ko pa naman, "we've got it all for you!" talaga sila. And take this, wala may alam sa mga pinagtanungan ko san ba nakakabili nun.
San nga ba muthers?!
Anyways, we arrived 30 minutes early yesterday. When Anika saw the poster, naging aligaga na agad! Super excited! Hmmm.. Partida, poster pa lang, ganyan na ang excitement ng bagets. Looks promising!
Outfit shot before going inside the main theater.
Anika was wearing a top from Gingernaps, jeggings for Wowa's secret store and Crocs.
|Nanay's outfit: Forever 21 top, Forever 21 denim cutoffs, Charles and Keith wedges and Rayban sunnies|
Inside there was these booths that sell Barney shirts, toys and DVDS. Sadly, the smallest shirt that they have is too big for Anika.
|Bags, toys and shirts being sold behind these two men.|
ME: Anak, wag na. Saglit lang naman ang lifetime niyan sayo eh. Pusta, bukas sira na yan kaka-bato mo. Sayang lang.
ANIKA: NO! Mine toy!!
Hokay. At least may remembrance siya.
Sulit naman because she didn't let go of the toy until the start of the program.
We went to our seats after buying the toy. Anika got a tad bit impatient while waiting for the show to start. Wala sa mood magpictorial because it was her afternoon nap time already.
Also, she kept on shouting, "Barney!!! Baaaaaarney!!!" while the curtains were already closed. Natatawa yung mga parents beside us =)
After a while... BAM!!!
Barney went on stage!!! The kids screamed and cheered!!!
Ang Anika, may gasping effect pa with her hands on her mouth. She shouted, "Barney!!!". Kilig na kilig!! Ayan, biglang nagka-energy! She danced and did the action songs.
She didn't know what to do when Barney came over and stood right in front of her! I heard her whisper, "wow!". Nakakatuwa!
Ofcourse the gang was complete. Including RIF the smallest of the four dinosaurs. RIF pala ang pangalan nun. All the while, Anika calls him REF.
ME: Girlie! Rif pala ang pangalan nung maliit na dinosaur eh!
GIRLIE: Oo nga po. Ref! R-I-F. Ref! Di ba ini-spell ko pa yun sa inyo?
Sabi ko nga.
|This is the king and queen of the purple land in the purple planet where Barney and friends visited =)|
During the break, Anika got bored yet again. Go home na daw hehe. Good thing, Alvin was able to make her aliw until Barney and friends came out again =)
All in all, since it looked like Anika enjoyed herself, I give it an 8 out 10 rating. Pero malamang, if you ask Anika, 10 of 10 ang ibigay niyan =)
