The most loved and supported love team of 2013 Kathniel is set to make its grand return on primetime TV via "Got to believe" which is directed by box-office director Cathy Garcia-Molina.

What with all the meticulously done covered tables and chairs decoration, photo booth, sashes, balloons, confetti, cameras, cake and cupcakes.

It's cool to be with Joe Cool, the alter ego of Snoopy, in Snoopy's World.

Snoopy's World is another off-the-beaten-path destination in Hong Kong, the land of cool weather! 

Opened in 2000, Snoopy's World (also known as Snoopyland) is a small park where you can see for FREE more than sixty (60) different statues of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the "Peanuts" gang. Yes, there is NO ENTRANCE FEE to Snoopy's World.
Linus cooked something delicious
A word of caution though. This is not a place where you go to as your only destination in Sha Tin (also spelled Shatin) area. When we went there, we also climbed up to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery, and walked around/ window-shopped at IKEA Sha Tin and New Town Shopping Mall. 

So don’t expect too much from it. Visiting Snoopy's World, as they say, is just a break from shopping or if you have kids, it is a place for them to experience being with the "Peanuts" characters. 

At any rate, the kids and the kids-at-heart will love taking their pictures with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and others. 

Many people are not aware of this park which is located on the 3rd level podium of New Town Shopping Mall in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. There used to be two tennis courts in this area before being converted to Snoopy's World.

You can find Snoopy's World by walking through the New Town Plaza shopping mall, which can be accessed directly from the (East Rail Line) MTR Sha Tin station (Exit A). Just follow the signage to Snoopy's World or ask for directions to the 3rd level podium once you get to New Town Plaza mall.

You can enter the Snoopy's World through the Doghouse Entry which is actually Snoopy's house. Just like in the cartoon strip "Peanuts," you can see a big model of Snoopy leisurely enjoying the sunshine on the roof of his doghouse. TRIVIA: It is the largest outdoor model of Snoopy in the world.
The Entrance to Snoopy's World
Remember not to go on weekends when there are lots of people in Snoopy's World.
In the above picture is the school bus at the School Plaza of Peanuts Academy. In front the school bus are (from left) Sally Brown, Charlie Brown and Linus van Pelt.
Gathered grilling their marshmallows near the Boating Canal are 
(from left to right) Schroeder, 
Peppermint Patty, Marcie and Linus van Pelt.

Entrance to Snoopy's World is FREE but in order to avail of the Canoe Ride along the Boating Canal, you need to present a receipt as proof of purchase of over a certain amount (HK$100, I think) from any of the shops in New Town Plaza mall. The Canoe Ride takes about 3 minutes. Take note that there are certain weight limitations in this ride. The ride is slow and during weekends, the queue to the Canoe Ride will be quite long. So, it is advisable to take the ride on a weekday.

"Peanuts" characters

The late cartoonist Charles Monroe Schulz created the "Snoopy" character in his cartoon serial "Peanuts" in 1950. He died in 2000, the same year when Snoopy's World opened in Sha Tin. 

Here are some of the famous "Peanuts" characters created by Charles Schulz:

1. Snoopy is Charlie Brown's lovable beagle (dog).

2. Woodstock, the yellow bird and Snoopy's best friend and side kick, is named after the famous rock festival.

3. Charlie Brown, the main character, is a lovable guy dominated by insecurities. He is meek, nervous and lacks self-confidence. He is unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game or kick a football. Aptly, the theme of the cartoon serial is "the great American unsuccess story."

4. Sally Brown is the younger sister of Charlie. She displays her being territorial by seizing her brother's bedroom or by making very sure that no other woman ever lays eyes on Linus.
From Left: Peppermint Patty, Lucy van Pelt, Marcie, Woodstock, Snoopy,
Charlie Brown, Sally Brown and Linus van Pelt
5. Linus van Pelt is Charlie's blanket-toting best friend and Sally's love interest. His blanket is, literally and actually, his "security blanket."

6. Lucy van Pelt, Linus' older sister, is a bossy and crabby (irritable) girl. 

7. Schroeder is a piano-playing character, Lucy's love interest, admirer of the great classical pianist-composer Ludwig van Bethoven and Charlie's second best friend after Linus. Schroeder has short blond hair. He almost always wears a striped shirt and either black or blue shorts. He is commonly seen playing his toy piano. His address is 1770 James Street, which is easy to remember for him because the number 1770 is Beethoven's birth year. Beethoven was a lifelong bachelor, and Schroeder feels he must emulate every aspect of his idol's life. Schroeder's constant refusal of Lucy's love is a constant theme in the cartoon serial. 

8. Marcie is the bespectacled character, best friend to tomboy Peppermint Patty (Patricia Reichardt), and displays romantic interest on Charlie Brown.

9. Franklin is the African-American boy who became a friend of Charlie Brown.
Along Peanuts boulevard in the Mini town area, you can see various buildings like the post office, bank and that of Brown Bros. which, as you will notice, has shown cracks probably caused by that girl in the above picture. Hahahaha!
Here, Charlie Brown is sitting on a couch watching TV . . . with me.

Opening hours: from 10 am to 8 pm (Monday to Sunday). Gate closes at 7:45 pm.

For those of you looking for off-the-trail tourist attractions in Hong Kong, you can go to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Shatin district. 
It is a famous Buddhist monastery located on the mountain behind Shatin Pai Tau Village near the Shatin station of the East Rail Line of the  Mass Transit Railway (MTR) in Hong Kong.
This place is near IKEA Shatin. We dropped by IKEA Shatin after our visit to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery.
It was founded in 1949 by the Reverend Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman who dedicated the last years of his life to constructing a temple containing nearly 13,000 statues of Buddha, and completed in 1957. 
There are no resident monks in this monastery. The ones managing this monastery are laypersons.
The monastery is divided into upper and lower portions. The whole complex occupies over eight hectares. In this complex are five temples, four pavilions, one pagoda and one veranda.
The main building of the monastery is the Ten Thousand Buddhas Temple which has more than 12,800 pieces of Buddha statues (in different postures) placed on the walls. 
The immortal body of Rev. Yuet Kai is located in the central portion of the temple.
The climb to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery is not for everybody though. 
You should have strong knees to climb the path up to the 10,000 Buddhas Temple. 
Juice mi aside from parang bundok ang aakyatin mo, aba may blessings pa nang pumunta kami doon. Yes! Inulan kami! Kaya ayun kesa 45 minutes inabot kami ng 2 hours bago namin naakyat ang tuktok ng bundok, pero naman sulit talaga!
At first, we got lost and took the wrong way because we missed the very small signage pointing to the direction of 10,000 Buddhas Monastery (see the above picture). 

We found ourselves climbing the cemetery (which has an escalator from the ground level) beside the Monastery. So, better take note of that "signage."

Tipid guide to collecting the McDonald’s Despicable Me Minions

Everybody has gone loco over McDonalds collectible toys again! For sure, you'll gain several pounds just trying to complete your collections! 

Hey, you! Yes, you! You ought to watch what you eat even if you want to collect all of the nine (9) Despicable Me toys collectibles. Too much of everything is bad.
I still vividly recall when I was trying to complete my toy collection in the past, I ate nothing but McDonalds meals from morning 'til night and I ended up gaining several extra pounds and that is sooooo bad!

McDonalds store in Vizayas Avenue offers breakfast Happy Meals which can go for as low as Php77 - Hamdesal with orange juice. For sure, everyone now wants to go or live in that area! (NOTE: I heard other McDonalds stores now offer Hamdesal with orange juice.)

Nine (9) multiply by seventy seven pesos (Php77.00) equals six hundred ninety three pesos (Php693.00) for nine (9) minions.

You shouldn't buy (and eat!) all of those meals in one sitting though because nine (9) servings of the Burger McDo Happy Meal add up to 3510 calories, which are significantly more than the recommended 1940 calories per day for women and 2550 for men.

For everyone who wants to collect all nine (9) minions from McDonald's Philippines, let not this blind you to eat non-stop at McDonalds. You ought to balance it out. Remember who would play with the minions if you are already dead from eating too much.

Sadly, even if you do collect all nine (9) of the minions released by McDonalds here in the Philippines, your collection won't be truly complete until you manage to snag the six (6) other minions being offered by McDonalds Australia and the US. Two (2) evil minions - Purple Minion Babbler and Purple Minion Giggling - and four (4) minions - Jerry Whistle, Phil Jelly Whistle, Tom Babbler and Carl Rocket Skateboard - won't be made available here in the Philippines.

Despicable Me 2 will start screening on July 3.  I wish someone from the movie marketing department invite me to the movie premiere!

Here is the movie Tagalog trailer!
