The Great British Festival at BGC: A peek at British culture

One of the things I like about Bonifacio High Street ,BGC is that they hold events that can be educational for the kids. So far, they’ve had an event that showcased the Filipino culture, another the Chinese culture and a fellow mommy blogger wrote about the event on Germany recently. I don’t know how I learned about The Great British Festival, I’m sure it was through the internet, but I made a mental note to take the kids to see it. I’ve been hearing about the richness of the British culture from a couple who’ve been our friends for years. In […]

The Crowd & Attractions at Star City!

I’ve been avoiding taking the kids to Star City for years. I’ve tried visiting the carnival a few times before and I always came out either disappointed or freaked out. I’m mildly agoraphobic so that had played a part in how I felt about the place. Judah celebrates 3 at Star City Judah turned three last January 1. We didn’t plan on a big celebration  but we wanted him to enjoy his birthday with us and his brothers. We originally planned on going to Active Fun but all of us, except for Jay, were coughing so badly, we thought they might refuse […]

The Mini Zoo they have at Residence Inn, Tagaytay

Since we were going to Taal Vista Hotel for our stay-cation, Jay and I thought it would be a good idea to bring the kids to see the animals at Paradizoo. I’ve never really heard of Paradizoo nor Residence Inn until I saw their promo on Metro Deal. We’ve passed by the place on our way to a friend’s private resort in Nasugbu, Batangas several months back but I didn’t know the name of the place. Residence Inn is only 5 kilometers away from Taal Vista Hotel but Paradizoo is another 6 kilometers. I thought at first that Residence Inn […]

Save Philippine Seas Watercolor Workshop

I’ve always been a fan of art. I’m not really an artist, (well, not the kind that paints and stuff) but I have always liked getting lost in the creativeness of those who are. So when a fellow WAHM posted an announcement about a Basic Art Workshop on the Manila Work-At-Home-Moms group page, I immediately registered Pablo. (The ad said 5 years and above, so Lukas and Judah can’t join yet) Who knows? He could be the next Fernando Amorsolo or Juan Luna! I asked him to choose between the pastel class or the watercolor class, he chose watercolor. I don’t really mind. […]

Stitches and lips: Lukas gets sutures

I wasn’t home when it happened. I was 5 minutes away, waiting for Jay and the kids to come and pick me up at Bonifacio High Street where I had a meeting. The only witness was Pablo. He said that Lukas jumped, spun in mid-air, and landed hard on his mouth! If you know Lukas well, you’d know he’s a climber and he’s never met an accident before. He must’ve tripped on his own legs when he twisted. Poor baby! I was hanging out at Fully Booked! when I received Jay’s text message. I immediately dropped the book I was reading […]
