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
April is birthday season for us, and it’s always a treat to be able to celebrate with family away from the city. Our little girl had a blast of a birthday weekend in Clark, Pampanga. Clark has always been a bit of a stopover and never the destination, which is a shame because not only … More Birthday weekend in Clark: The Mansion
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
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!
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!
