    Our Museo Pambata Experience

    One day, we decided to do away from malls for a change. We were thinking of going to open parks, but, we thought that it might be too hot to walk around, especially in the afternoon. Then, we thought of Museo Pambata. Museo Pambata Museo Pambata literally is a museum for children. Yet, adults could also learn a thing or two in this place. Entrance Fee Admission fee is 250 pesos per head, starting from kids 2 years old and above. If you are a Manila resident, you may present a valid ID and you could get a 50% discount. But if you visit on a Tuesday, (as Manila resident),…

    Our Toddler’s First Disney On Ice Experience

    I grew up watching Disney films. We usually spend our summer days binge watching films from Bambi to Toy Story. And who does not love the Disney Princesses films ? Sometimes, having a kid is a good excuse to do kid stuffs you’ve always wanted to do yourself. And Disney On Ice was that perfect excuse. I’ve been always curious about it since it started its run here in Manila. Thankfully, Olive knows enough Disney characters to pass up as a newbie spectator of the show. Disney On Ice Tickets We were actually having second thoughts on booking tickets at first. We were asking ourselves whether it would be worth…

    Candy Factory at SM North EDSA Main Mall

    SM North, though huge, does not really have one big play or arcade area. Most of them are divided into many pocket playgrounds and arcade halls per building.   Candy Factory is one of those indoor playground. It is located in the lower ground floor of SM North Main Mall, within the food court area. What’s Inside Candy Factory   Candy Factory is very attractive from the outside. Its splash of pink, violet and blue hues unusually draws you in like a moth to a light bulb.   Candy Factory may be small, but it’s packed with everything an active child can enjoy.   Candy Factory’s Play Sections   Ball…

    Halloween Trick-or-Treat With My Toddler

    It has been days since Halloween.   Last year, our office kicked off the trick-or-treat activity for employees’ kids. I was able to bring Olive, and we just tire ourselves out because yaya and I took turns lifting her while going on different stations. But we had fun nonetheless.   This year, we had a Disney Pixar themed Halloween, so it was more kid friendly. As usual, I brought along my daughter.   Costume, Costume, Costume   It was easy dressing her up the previous Halloween. I just recycled her first birthday dress and her fairy wings used during her photo shoot. It made her look like a fairy princess…

    Forty Adorable Things Our Toddler Does

    Our daughter is now two years and nine months. Time really does fly. Who would have thought our once cutie baby is now an adorable toddler. She’s now our big baby girl.   There are a lot of things that our toddler does that I just couldn’t simply capture on video. That’s why I have enumerated forty adorable things she has been doing which we could look back to when she would have become older.   The Adorable Things She Does During Mealtime…   How she observes the spoon first to check if there were pieces of meat (and how she exaggerates her cringes when there really is meat) How…

    Fun City At Ali Mall Araneta Center Cubao

    Last week, we were exploring our options on where to take our daughter since she has been longing for a “pasyal”. My hubby stumbled on a picture of an indoor playground located in Araneta Center. We thought it was located in Gateway, so we decided to give it a go.   However, when we asked some personnel where the play area was, they pointed us at Timezone. We asked another one, and he referred us to go Fun City in Ali Mall.   What’s Inside Fun City ?   Fun City is indeed a “city” because it was a really huge indoor playground I’ve been into so far.   It…

    Olivia’s First Trip to the Manila Ocean Park

    I’ve been to Manila Ocean Park when it was newly opened to the public. The main attraction back then was just the Oceanarium. If I remember it right, the entrance fee was like 500 pesos per head.   We went there again. But we only visited the Jellyfish exhibit, Seri 3D Fantasy Art and Mirror Maze since those were the added attractions back then.   This marked my 3rd visit to Manila Ocean Park more than five years later. This was our daughter’s first.     How Much Does It Cost to Visit Manila Ocean Park   Manila Ocean Park offers various packages with corresponding prices: Marine Voyage (15 activities)…

    My Nine Hundred and Fifty Days of Breastfeeding – And Counting

    It’s World Breastfeeding Week. So, it’s pretty timely to tell about my past and present experiences in my breastfeeding journey.   I was able to post before that I still breastfeed my toddler.  This time, I’d be sharing more moments I have gone through in this terrific motherhood stage.   Day 0 — My Decision to Breastfeed   When I was pregnant, I really wanted to breastfeed because my sister was able to do it with my nephew. Its nutritional benefit was also a factor of my decision.   I prepared by drinking more liquid and sipping more soup. I also watched videos related to breastfeeding such as how to…

    Kira’s Box at Trinoma Mall

    It’s been a while since we went to Trinoma. After Olive’s visit from the doctor, we hitched a ride with my sister since they were going there.   After eating our lunch, we let Olive ride on the carousel, Ferris wheel and some kiddie rides in Timezone. We decided to roam around the mall after, but we came across this little indoor playground named Kira’s Box.   What’s Inside Kira’s Box ?   Kira’s Box is a charming little playground that’s more focused on pretend play. It’s not as big as Kidzoona but it’s more than enough for little kids to have fun with.     Once you get inside,…

    How We Potty Trained Our Daughter

    I am so happy that Olivia is finally using her own potty! Her transition was pretty smooth and easy, many thanks to her very patient yaya. It’s indeed a great milestone!   I bought her potty last year, because I was expecting she could start early. Likewise, I was influenced by other mothers whose child is already potty trained as young as one year old (some even before they reach their first birthday).   However, it turned out the opposite in our case. The potty collected dust and was neglected for a year. Olive was just merely opening and closing its lid out of curiosity. In that regard, we just…
