Going PACES with School of Tomorrow Philippines

We resumed our homeschooling on the second week of January this year. For our two younger boys, I think we’ve covered enough academics with them last year, but it was a different story for our 12-year old. We barely touched his academics. But just so you know, it was because we decided to transition the kids from our DIY + interest-led homeschooling to PACES, and thought to give him a break from the academics for a while and let him focus on his musical rehearsals until the new study materials arrive. I used to dislike the idea of putting my […]

Bowling with the family at SM Bowling Center

We decided to take the kids bowling yesterday. We were at SM Megamall last Monday for my appointment at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) for my passport renewal and we had some time to go around and check out the new things they have at the mall. We found out that the skating rink has been moved to the fifth floor and on the same floor, you will find other recreational facilities such as Gandiva Archery and SM Bowling Center. Me and Bowling don’t match Jay had been asking me to go bowling for as long as I can […]

Dinosaurs Island and Holy Land in Baguio

Dinosaurs Island didn’t really make it on top of my list when I was planning our Baguio trip. I was prioritizing places that can only be found in Baguio and thought that if we run out of time, it’s one of those we can set aside for another trip. But the kids expressed interest in seeing the place, especially Pablo who learned that animatronics are involved. So we decided to go when we couldn’t find a ride to Ben Cab from Tam-Awan. Baguio Eco Park rates We were informed beforehand that it would be difficult to get a ride back […]

Strawberry picking at the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet

The place I was most excited to take the kids to was the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad. I’ve always wanted them to experience strawberry picking and to walk the fields and see what it’s like to be there. I read Joy Mendoza’s post, City Kids on Strawberry Farm , in 2013 and I’ve been praying for this to happen for my kids too since then. I read somewhere that November to January is harvest time for the strawberries, so I knew right away that we had to go. Although later on, I was told by a local that it’s […]

Tam-Awan Village, Garden in the Sky in Baguio City

One of the places I was keen on taking my kids to in Baguio is Tam-Awan village. It was a bit of a distance from the city but cabs in Baguio don’t really charge high and there are jeepneys that you can take to get there and back. In fact, we took the jeepney back because while it was easy to get a ride going there from the Strawberry farm, we found it hard to get a cab going back to the city proper. Learning about the Igorots I learned about Tam-Awan while searching for places to visit in Baguio […]
