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.

Learning about the Igorots I learned about Tam-Awan while searching for places to visit in Baguio […]

The Christmas Galaxy in Baguio City

I’ve seen photos of The Christmas Galaxy at Baguio Country Club a couple of years ago and thought right away to bring the kids to see it when we get the chance.

But of course we cannot leave on Christmas eve because it’s when we usually have dinner with my side of the family. It’s a tradition. Plus, it has been a request that my parents made to […]

Ayala Museum for kids!

I came across an article posted by my friend Nadia about the free admission for kids at the Ayala Museum from the 26th to the 30th. The article says that there will be activities for kids to join and kids-approved exhibits like the Diorama of the Philippine History and the Rizal Virtual Reality experience. For me, a trip to the museum is always a good thing so I asked my husband if we could go before New Year. Since we were going to Pasay today, we decided to include the museum in our itinerary. Fourth floor down What greeted us […]

Parenting: The Bullies

“Somebody bullied Lukas at camp,” my 8-year old son’s best friend told me. According to her, they made fun of my son’s tiny voice and accent when he speaks. And when Lukas tried to tell them to stop, they ridiculed him even more. I was shocked! The news was totally unexpected because my husband was with Lukas at the camp and it happened months ago, in summer. No one informed me about any bullying incident that involved my son. I was fuming! Being a mother, my initial reaction was to text my husband and demand that the parents of these […]
