At 6 years old, my daughter’s love for dinosaurs has not waned. It’s one of the reasons why my mom planned a birthday weekend in Clark, because there’s a Dinosaurs Island there. Akira was super excited, but it also got us thinking – how is this one different from the one in Baguio? The most … More Birthday weekend in Clark: Dinosaurs Island and Rolling Bread
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
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
Before falling for the Cozy Baguio Stay for 3 in a Deluxe Suite with Breakfast headline, there was Laiya’s Idyllic Seaside Escape with Full Board Meals for 2. What can I say – I’m a happy Deal Grocer customer. The Laiya deal was for my kid’s first encounter with the sea. She super loved her first swimming … More Dinos and horses: Day 2 in Baguio!
(Updated) It was a random Deal Grocer purchase that I thought would last until when we could really use it, but too bad, I only had until June 15. So my family, including my friend who just came home from a trip abroad, and my hungover brother, piled into our Mazda CX5 for an overnight trip to the Philippines’ summer … More Dinos and horses: Day 1 in Baguio!
(Updated) Antipolo, Rizal. It’s one of those places that have the look and feel of an out-of-town destination but retains enough proximity to the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila. We’ve visited two interesting places here on two separate Sundays. The first was when we attended a lunch reception for the christening of our friend’s daughter, and the … More Art appreciation in Antipolo!
One of Akira’s favorite stories is The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone. This story enjoyed a good rotation in our household, where she requested to have this story read for several nights in a row. It was no surprise that on one Saturday, when we told her we were going to a museum, she … More Hello, Museo Pambata!
Well, just the afternoon if we’re going to be accurate. And not just any kind of farm, which makes this a great discovery and warrants more future visits and recommendations to friends. My mom made her birthday all about Akira by whisking us off to Costales Nature Farms in Majayjay, Laguna. Upon arrival, the first … More A day in the farm!
