Play With OREO!: The Fun Farm at Sta. Elena!

mother and daughter

        It's been 3 years since I gave birth to my little Rainbow. And everyday since then we have spent our lives with her. That's roughly 1,250 days. But because the only thing permanent in this world is change, a couple of weeks ago I officially made a payment to a small school in our village. So Rain will be starting school this June. Obviously, I'm the one having separation anxiety. 

        So when we had the chance to go with the SoMoms on a little road trip to a nice farm in Sta. Elena in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, I didn't want to pass up the chance! It's a great bonding trip with my little one before she starts getting busy with school (I'm talking like she's going off to college or something haha)  

sheep crossing street

        It was around an hour drive from Manila to Sta. Elena. Going inside Sta. Elena, a flock of sheep greeted us by blocking our path. (Baaaaaa!)

The Fun Farm

        After an easy drive, touchdown! It's pretty easy going here. From SLEX, exit to Cabuyao, then after the toll gate, turn right. And then around 500 meters you will see the Sta. Elena Village gate entrance on your right. From there, you can get the simple instructions from the guard on how to get to The Fun Farm. FYI that visits to The Fun Farm has to be booked ahead of time. Reservations need to be made.

We're here!

the fun farm entrance fee

        Entrance fee is P300 per head, but free for children below 2 years old. Special P240 rate for senior citizens. After 4 hours, there's an hourly rate of P50.

white hanging tent

        This was our area for the day! The Fun Farm has a number of areas where groups of customers can be assigned for the day. This is why you need to book ahead of time. It's ideal for parties!


        Before heading out to check out all the fun activities we could do at The Fun Farm, Rain wanted to have a snack first! And she wanted to attack the OREO!


Which by the way, has a new flavor, STRAWBERRY!!! It's really our go-to snack for family trips

eating oreos

Rain's way of eating OREOS: Look, and lick!

sand house playground

        After a hearty serving of OREOS, we went on to explore! Rain had a blast at the Sand House. It's literally like a big sand box with little activities kids can do there.


        She loved the swings! And I won't have to worry so much about her breaking something if she falls because of the sand. This area's definitely for the little ones.

wooden pyramid

        This one on the other hand is more for the bigger kids. It may look like cool wooden pyramids, but there's something more to it...

zip line the fun farm

        It's a mini zip line! Go up to the wooden pyramid and zip down back to the ground! (With adult supervision of course)


        Aside from the Sand House, there were a couple more playground things in the farm such as the net, see saws, and a little tunnel maze

old trucks

There's also some old cool trucks around which is just fun to take photos with!


Then there's the boating area. It's a small man-made lake where you can ride a boat.

white boat small lake

        It was a quick ride but it was fun none the less! Oh, and there's another activity here in this photo. Can you see it? Let's zoom in, shall we?


        People can cross the little lake by hanging on these ropes. Looks really fun! And I heard some people weren't able to make it to the other side and *SPLASH*!!!! Falls into the water. (True story)

bamboo shower area

Which is why they've created a shower area! 

fishing bamboo rod

        Oh and you can go fishing too! You can get a bamboo fishing rod with a worm bait from the guy manning the little lake. Unfortunately, we didn't catch one. But we saw some kids who were lucky!


        I know what you're thinking. It's a farm. So where are the animals?!? Well, here you go!

carabao fun farm

        Of course there are lots of animals that the kids can interact with! Like this carabao for example. He's just taking a quick rest but later on, you'll see how he can take you for a fun ride! (Looks like Rain really likes to join the carabao for a mud bath!)

        And so after being acquainted with Chocnut the Carabao, all the kids went for a ride with him, bringing along some OREOS in case they get hungry during the Chocnut's farm tour.

horseback riding fun farm

        Another fun activity is horseback riding! Confession... this is my first time again in probably 25 years to actually ride a horse. Rain enjoyed it a lot so we rode twice. (Tip: You can ride as much as you want as it's part of the fee already.)

feeding pony

They also have a pony that you can pet! I think you can feed it too!

animal feeding

A Fun Farm would not be as fun without animal feeding. So of course they have an Animal Feeding area which all the kids seemed to spend most of their time on.

feeding rabbits

The feeding area has a rabbit pen ..

feeding guinea pigs

and a guinea pig pen. I just love this photo taken by Michelle of My Mom Friday! Thanks Michelle for this photo! :-)

pig pen

They also had pigs but they were too lazy to play that day no matter how much Rain tried to 
get their attention.

wash hands alcohol

        What I love about The Fun Farm is how they consider cleanliness and sanitation. Like the fact that there's an available alcohol and tissue on the table right by the feeding area. So your kids can wash their hands immediately after feeding and petting the little fur monsters.

basin wash area

        And if alcohol doesn't quite solve the icky feeling, there are wash areas around that you can use to lather your face and arms with water and soap. Very convenient!

Look within the secret is inside you

        I also like the scattered random positive messages posted around the farm. This one's my favorite! (#TheSecret #LawsofAttraction #PositiveAttractsPositive)

Time to #PlayWithOREO!


        After a while, we all went back to our camp and played games while waiting for lunch. Lucky for us all, the games had something to do with eating OREOS! 

oreo games

        First game was to stack OREOS using nothing but chopsticks. And I'm happy to say 
our team won!

oreo games

        The next game was the taste test! Kids were blindfolded and were asked to 
blind-taste 3 flavors of OREOS. 


Original, double stuffed chocolate, and the newest flavor, Strawberry

swing with oreos

        Rain hogged the whole OREOS Strawberry before I could even taste it. I guess you could say she has no plans of sharing it. 

        It was a tiring trip but all the kids really had a lot of fun playing with the animals, playing with other kids, playing with their families, and playing with OREO! <--- Click here to watch the fun TVC of OREO!
