The stars of GMA Network’s latest TV series called “First Yaya” spent time on location recently at The Manila Hotel to shoot some important scenes for the said TV show. While they were on a break, lead stars Gabby Concepcion (who plays Philippine President Glenn Acosta) and Sanya Lopez (as Yaya Melody, the first family’s official nanny) together with former beauty queen, Maxine Medina (as Lorraine Prado) were seen checking out The Manila Hotel’s Mystery Easter Egg–the Grand Dame’s offering for this year’s Easter celebration.
The Manila Hotel’s Youtube video posted on its official social media accounts, Gabby took the lead in cracking the giant egg open while Sanya and Maxine gamely cheered on. Other celebrities from the cast such as Cassy Legaspi and Thia Thomalia also joined in the fun to see what’s inside the egg.
The Mystery Egg is the hotel’s play on those popular Mystery Boxes being sold online. With Easter celebrations dampened this year because the pandemic prevents kids from going out, The Manila Hotel thought to help spread some #EasterJoy with something parents can buy for their kids to enjoy at home.
Easter egg hunting activities may be cancelled this year, but fun certainly isn’t. Plus, the Mystery Egg gives parents a chance to win for their kids some exciting prizes in the “Easter Joy! Mystery Easter Egg” online raffle that will be held on April 5, at 2pm. The raffle will be done via Facebook Live (@TheManilaHotel).
Every purchase of the Mystery Egg worth P2,500 nett entitles guests to one (1) raffle ticket. The prizes for the raffle include one (1) Chromebook computer, which can be used for kids’ online classes. They can also win one set of The Manila Hotel Gelatos, and The Manila Hotel’s Willy The Bear.
The Manila Hotel also partnered with several groups to help make the Easter celebration a little more special for kids. Mystery Egg buyers also get the chance to win passes to online kiddie workshops from Make Believe Productions, like Superhero Art, Groovebeats Dance Workshop, Imaginart: Drawing and Painting for Kids, and Make Believe N’ Yoga for Kids; Activity Kits for kids from Kits For Kids by RC Lab like My Body Care Lab Kit, 25-in-1 Science Bear Experiment Kit, and Fizzy Easter Activity Kits; and also Introductory Visit to The Little Gym online classes.
