On Cloud Nine with Hi-5!

Weeee….we got to have our picture taken with Hi-5!


My daughter was sitting right beside me and reading the words as I typed them. She asked me to type this for her:

Yesterday, we had so much fun at Hi-5! And we were so happy to see Hi-5! I had a Jup-Jup and Jakei had the Hi-5 hand.  I love you Mama. I love you Papa. And you love me Jade and Jakei.


Fun is an understatement actually. It was more of a blast!  Although we were seated far from the stage, the kids still had a great time singing and dancing during the concert.  I admit I was a bit disappointed when I was only able to get Silver tickets (boo-hoo! bought the tickets too late and all the good seats were sold out already 🙁 ).  However, it turned out to be a good thing coz some of the people in front were standing during the concert.  If we had bought tickets closer to the stage but not front seat ones, our view would have been blocked.

During the last song of the concert, my little girl wanted so badly to go to the stage to say Hi to the cast.  When I told her that we’re not allowed to go there, she was a bit disappointed  and just kept shouting “I love you Hi-5!  See you tomorrow!”


As luck would have it, we were able to meet Hi-5 personally before going home.  We were in line waiting for our turn for a picture with Santa in the activity center when I saw Gio and introduced myself. To my surprise, and extreme glee, he asked me if we wanted to have our picture taken with Hi-5.  Of course, I said YES!

My kids weren’t smiling for two probable reasons: one, they were starstruck and wondering how Hi-5 got out of our television, or two, they were ashamed of how their Mom acted.  I was absolutely gushing over the cast! My goodness! It was quite embarrassing now that I think of it.  I could have thanked them for their wonderful show earlier or for bringing out my kids’ love for music or for helping those who have been badly affected by Typhoon Pablo.  But no! All I could say was, “Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I’m more excited than my kids to see you!”



  1. cool! i love hi-5 before when my little sister is still watching it. hehe i think it’s not the original cast anymore.

  2. So nice that your kids managed to take a picture with the cast. I’m sure the photo will be a treasured momento.

  3. wow, experiencing this i bet this is one of your kid’s cherished christmas

    • Theirs AND mine! LOL! Felt so much like a kid seeing the cast in person. I shall forever remember Lauren telling me “Oh look! We have the same shoes!” 😀

  4. Its priceless to see the delight in children’s eyes! I hope to take my daughter to shows like this when she grows up.

  5. I actually like watching their show! I hope they come back when my baby gets old enough to appreciate them. 🙂

  6. I’m not familiar with Hi-5, but it seems like a fun and educational tv show. Am I right? 🙂

  7. My kids love them. Too bad we couldn’t go and watch. My kids would probably ask them where’s Fely. I’d also be more excited, we each have our favorite member.

    On a sidenote, yes, Zoocobia is run by Zoomanity group. It’s a great treat and by now, I’m sure they’ve developed the zip line they were starting last year at Zoocobia in Clark, Pampanga.

  8. I get entertained whenever I watch Hi-5 with my nephews and niece. Your kids must have felt euphoric as they saw the casts of Hi-5 right at their very eyes and might have even sang along while the songs were being played 🙂 Such activity is worth investing on.

    Blessed Christmas, Olga 🙂

  9. My kids used to love Hi-5.Now they are into Taylor Swift, One direction and The script na

  10. Yay…lucky kids to havje been able to have their picture taken with Hi-5. I remember my band chasing days when I was still in high school.

  11. omg you met them personally. dont worry sis, id be more excited than my kids too! hahahahha

  12. What a nice experience. Your kids do had a great time. 🙂

  13. Aw, your kids really looks like they had so much fun with the Hi-5 gang. They also had their show in Cebu but we weren’t able to watch still. I hope they’ll come back next year. 🙂

    • The concert in Cebu was rescheduled to January 19. You can still catch them then! Better book your tickets now at the Waterfront Cebu Hotel. 😀

  14. That was so nice! Where was the concert held?

    • The concert was held at The Centerstage in MOA. The venue was small which was actually great coz we could still appreciate the performances though we were seated almost at the back.

  15. I love Hi-5! When my now-10 year old nephew was a little toddler, we would watch it on TV. I remember Kathleen, the Filipina! Now, my 2-year old nephew loves it too and I get to watch it again. Hehe. When my nephew is big enough to appreciate a concert, I hope Hi-5 comes back for another show for their Pinoy fans 🙂

  16. I’m envious! You’re kids must have had soooo much fun singing Hi-5 songs and dancing with them while they were performing! I’m happy for the experience that they had! They will cherish it for life! Good job to you and hubby! 🙂 Happy New Year Olga!

  17. your kids must have been excited with the concert as saw in their reaction to the picture with HI-5 poster. think they have a concert this coming January in Cebu.
