I haven’t been to a water park since I was a freshman in college. My kid has never been to one! Knowing how she loves swimming, and the water, I had a feeling she would be talking about this place for a long time. I may have been out of the loop because I wasn’t … More Birthday weekend in Clark: Aqua Planet
My friend captioned one of our photos from The Dessert Museum with a fitting U2 song (care to take a guess?), which in turn made me remember this Iggy Pop song. Oh, when rockers get mushy. Make it this post’s theme song, too! The Dessert Museum opened last February 2018. It’s comprised of 8 theme … More Peeling the wrapper off The Dessert Museum
I was able to catch Loving Vincent in the movie theatre – I had a friend who wouldn’t allow me to miss it – so to hear about an outdoor screening of the film in spite of it showing in local cable already was another must-do for us. It was for free, and I have … More (Tried) loving Vincent again
If you had one last day to enjoy Fukuoka, and you have little kids with you, make the most of it with a day in JR Hakata City. JR Hakata City refers to the building complex that includes Hakata Station. It is a tourist attraction in itself. Hakata station is the largest and busiest in … More Farewell Fukuoka: A day in JR Hakata City
My daughter just turned five, and these photos are giving me all the feels! When we traveled to Fukuoka, Japan, we didn’t expect for it to be as child friendly as it was. Museums were a joy to visit, and we found incredibly fun places for a three-year old to lose the day in, with little … More Born to play at BorneLund’s Kid-O-Kid
Fukuoka, Japan has just the thing for visiting families with small children. It’s big, it’s fun, and it’s uniquely Japanese. We were not familiar at all with the cartoon characters featured in this conveniently located indoor theme park. Majority of the visitors were Japanese, in fact, but the place did remind us of Kidzoona, only … More Fun, fun, fun at the Anpanman Children’s Museum
We have been to Art Fair Philippines for the first time in 2014. What they did to that ordinary parking building was nothing short of impressive – as were the high-profile attendees from the business, fashion, and entertainment worlds – and in spite of having a spirited 2-year old in tow, the experience was enthralling … More Two years of Art Fair
Akira’s school hosts this little event called ‘Night of Song and Dance’ every year, just before the holiday break. For the students and teachers, the last day of school is reserved for class Christmas parties, and a not-so-formal concert of song and dance for the parents and guests. Since it happens every year, Night of … More A kiddie kind of Christmas
A reunion, field trip, play date, get-together! With dinosaurs and donuts! … More Dinosaurs and donuts day!
No Halloween gimmicks for us this year. But grateful to my daughter’s school for having trick or treat mixed in with celebrating United Nations Day. It was a fun and memorable last day of class before the All Soul’s Day break. Her class was assigned Greece. They learned how to say ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ in … More Greeks!
