4 Kid-Friendly Theme Parks when in Manila

1. Manila Ocean Park
Recommended place to explore and get up-close and personal with freshwater and seawater creatures. They have promo packages wherein different attractions are combined at a certain price. I just hope the management will take extra care of the animals. I know that its better to explore these marine life outside the aquarium, yet, seeing crocodiles, sharks, sting rays, corals and those rare fishes in one-time setting is probably unlikely nowadays especially with today's threat to our environment, I would still bring my kids and visit again this park to explore and learn. Read here for our Manila Ocean Park experience.



2. Enchanted Kingdom
Located down south of Manila, experience thrills and excitement through fun and mind-blowing rides for kids and kids at heart. One time payment and avail ride-all-you-can. Visit during weekdays to avoid big crowds and long queues on per rides. We have so much fun.

3. SkyRanch Tagaytay
Still down south, experience another amusement ce…

May 2016 WrapUp

Seeing these tomatoes grow and multiply albeit the aphids and drought is happiness :) Home gardening becomes a therapy and I’m thinking of planting another vegetables, any ideas? | Last month was a blast as we embark our adventure to Luzon. It was tiring yet so much fun. It has been awhile so everyone was excited especially our youngest son. It is his first time to visit Luzon. Look at the excitement in his face.

Manila Ocean Park, I feel for the animals being displayed as exhibits. But if there is an assurance that these animals are properly taken cared of and ensuring the accommodation is the same if not almost close to their habitat then I’ll be assured. As much as we want to explore the the world to see these animals, yet we can’t for now so seeing my kids being captivated by these creatures especially those ginormous ones is a beautiful feeling. Closer than just seeing on books and TV shows. Read more here for our Manila Ocean Park experience.

Seeing familiar places and faces. I mi…

Akita Japanese Restaurant Cebu - What to Expect

Really a big fan of Japanese food and culture. Something about how they meticulously prepare their food and how art is combine to present a beautifully crafted meal is interesting. It has been my favorite ever since. 
When Cebu Food Bloggers (CBC Foodies) were invited by Akita Japanese Restaurant, I make myself available and ask Kalami Cebu if I could join. The invitation was well fitting since its been awhile that my tastebuds haven't eaten on a Japanese meal

Akita Japanese Restaurant, which recently open last April 2016, is located at the ground floor of GND Building, along F. Cabuhug, Kasambagan, Cebu City 6000. GND Building is few blocks from Sykes. You'll never fail to miss it because of its bright green color. The theme color seems to attract those who are health buff as it depicts healthy food :)

So together with the Cebu Food Bloggers (CBC Foodies), here's what we feast at Akita Japanese Restaurant: 
Salad Because of its modern vibe, they offer salads like Chicken Salad…

Peekapak: Free Stories and Activities

While we, in this side of the world, are busy with school preparations, teachers and parents from the other side of the world are also busy wrapping up as school is almost done and students are giddy and excited for their summer break.

But isn't it great if we, parents, still engage our kids with educational learning even during summer break. I don't want to ruin their summer fun here but studies shows that young people "experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during summer".  Students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation vs. on the same tests at the beginning of summer. 

So to help parents engage their kids, Peekapak is here to help by making their resources of full platform of stories and lessons available for free.

What is Peekapak?
