Join the Summer In The City Island Getaway by Banana Peel 2016 May 7th in Trinoma

I am a backpacker and a flip - flop wearer (I advocate anything light when I travel). That is why Banana Peel's collections of footwear has been a personal choice of mine even before. The amount of one pair suits to my backpacker budget and the designs are just simply stunning. What I like the most is that since I walk a lot (as in a lot), Banana Peel flippies are thick enough for my feet to not to feel the hardness of the ground and the small pebbles we step on. On my way to 4th out of 6th province around the country where I did mystery travelling task to Dipolog last year, I was wearing my 3rd pair of Banana Peel slippers already. You can read it here.  

Speaking of, the Summer in the City Island Getaway is back this coming weekend, May 7th in Trinoma. Last year, it was held quite farther in Technohub that I had to prepare an hour earlier to get there on time. If you want to see how much fun the Summer In the City 2015 so you have an idea of what it is going to be this Saturday, please click here.

Here is the official press release statement sent over to me. 

For most people, summer is the highlight of the year. It’s the perfect season for a break from the daily hustle and bustle of life and experiencing new adventures. Luckily, for those who haven’t found the time for their summer getaway, Banana Peel brings the island to the metro on Saturday, May 7, 2016, from 10am to 10pm at the Trinoma Activity Center.  

‘Summer in the City: Island Getaway’ is Banana Peel’s summer treat for its loyal followers. “We understand how busy each of us can get these days. We can easily get so caught up in the never-ending demands of work and school, and we end up missing out on that much deserved break. This is why we are bringing the summer island adventure experience to our customers,” enthused Paul Ng, CEO of The Neat, Inc.’s Banana Peel flip flops. “Customers can count on an entire day of discovering an exhilarating island experience,” added Ng.

The day-long event is packed with activities enjoyed in the islands. The ‘Chill Coast’ area offers tropical pampering experiences like the isle’s nail polish, hair-braiding, face painting, and massage. The ‘Wild Trek’ brings the island’s adventure thrill, where guests get to enjoy a 7-meter high wall-climbing inflatable, a giant Eagle’s Nest Kerplunk, a Temple Run arcade game, and other action-packed activities. At the ‘Snack Valley’, guests can eat and fuel up with the island treats prepared by sponsors, as they enjoy one activity after another.

“The first Summer in the City in 2015 yielded such a positive response from our customers. This event is a way for us to celebrate the importance of spending time with family and friends,” said Ng. “We are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled day with Summer in the City: Island getaway.”
