If you hear this "Together... 1, 2, 3, 4,... Hi-5!", I'm sure you know it already. It's time to watch Hi-5! My kids love it very much that they even watch the episodes of Hi-5 on youtube over and over. Knowing that Hi-5 got its counterpart already made the kids even more excited that we really went to SM Megamall Atrium just to see the casts of Hi-5 Philippines. Take note Fely Irvine was there too and the kids enjoyed the day very much.
This is the very first public appearance of the Hi-5 Philippines casts. Though the venue was small, still the kids dance and sing with them wholeheartedly, even our kids. They sung some of the favorites in Hi-5 that moved the kids to their feet.
After the sing and dance portion of the Hi-5PH casts they gave fans a chance to have a photo opportunity with them. Thanks to Stratworks that we were invited, the kids got their chance of photo with with casts and of course my son, Maki's favorite, Fely Irvine.
