I’m all for indoor play areas for children, but if there’s one thing that can make me not want to try a place out is a ridiculously high entrance fee. We have tried a lot of places, they all tend to be the same, so it’s a bit of a hard sell for me to … More Hello, Kidzania!
At 4 years old, Akira still finds the mall’s indoor playgrounds a happy place. It still excites her when she spots one, she still has a great time in one, and really, if your family is the type that’s in a mall at least once a week, then it pays to make the indoor playground … More Yes, we still do indoor playgrounds
I knew I had Japan to thank for inventing instant noodles, but now I know specifically to thank Momofuku Ando! On a trip to Tokyo last January, I decided to hop on a train (3 times to be exact) to Yokohama and visit a one-of-a-kind museum: a museum dedicated to cup noodles! The Cup Noodle … More Hello, Cup Noodle Museum!
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!
(Updated) I was born in Quezon City. We moved to Makati around 1993 when I started high school in St. Scholastica’s College Manila. And then I began living in Quezon City again in my mid-twenties with J. As an otherwise happy QC resident, I never imagined I would live this far out one day. But as … More #embracingthesouth: thoughts of a new south girl
I don’t know about you, but it seems that Easter has turned into this almost exclusively for children kind of holiday or event. Whether in the malls or in posh hotels, there’s an Easter event that a family with small children can look forward to. For us, if there are no previous plans made, like … More Kicking and painting eggs: Easter 2016
You don’t need to convince me that play is an important part of childhood, and that it’s integral to a child’s proper growth and development. I’m all for play and more physical activity, especially these days when it seems that children are becoming less and less active. I understand families these days have limited options … More What’s a play class like? Our ClubBambino experience
Akira is a very active kid. I remember when she was about 8 months old, she already insisted on walking with assistance (somebody stands behind her and holds her hands). We’d do these drills all over the house, outside the house, up and down steps, and I tried my best to stop only when she … More 5 indoor areas for kids that are built for play
The husband and I have both pegged 3 years old as a good time for Akira to start going to school. Granted, of course, that school assessments also agree that she is ready. She’ll be turning 3 this April, so I’ve dedicated January for researching and calling up some schools that we like, as well … More Today is brought to you by ClubBambino and Nutella
Still Quezon City, but it felt like going out of town a little bit! To be honest though, if there’s no traffic jam, going to Fairview Terraces is a breeze. The most convenient route would be Commonwealth Avenue all the way. Ayala malls are the best malls, in my opinion, and just because the Makati … More Hello, Fairview Terraces!
