Out + About: Visiting The National Museum of Natural History

We went to the National History of Natural Museum in Manila during our school field trip last month. This is my favorite of all the places we visited that time. The other attractions we went to are Car Museum at the Quezon City Memorial Circle, Lights and Sounds Museum in Intramuros, + Manila Ocean Park.

There are a lot of interesting displays and exhibits at the museum. I enjoy looking at the different bird species found in our country. I also love the Philippine physical map they have on display. It reminded me so much of those scenes in films and shows on the tellie that shows generals or leaders discussing their plan of attack to their men! ^_^

on traveling + learning a foreign language

travel, out + about, my favorite things, educational places for children to visit, fun activities for children

we planned to spend more time outdoors this year + seemed like we were off to a good start as we joined a fun walk at school earlier this year. we had to wake up very early in the morning in order to make it to the assembly place at 5.30am. we were a bit late, but we still managed to join. we had fun walking through the road leading to my school before the sun came up. we were a bit tired + sweaty when we made it to the finish line, but it was all worth it + i really had a great time walking, marveling at the things i see around + getting a much-needed exercise.

we also managed to catch the Pope Francis Stamp Exhibit at SM ~ The Block during the Holy Father’s visit here + i did not fail to grab the chance to have a quick snap with his life-size standee. Do you like our photo together?

we also managed to go to the la mesa eco park last month. i’ve been asking mum if we can visit the place since i saw bogart the explorer’s episode about his visit to this awesome local park! there are plenty of wide open spaces to roam around, lots of beautiful flowers + huge trees. we had fun running around the green grass + spending great time under the sun! we also got a glimpse of the vast la mesa dam, too bad we were not allowed to take photos of it. we enjoyed our park visit so much i cannot wait for us to go back there!

traveling is really an enjoyable pastime + a perfect bonding activity with the family that is why i really hope we can travel more this year. it might take a few while before we’d require one of those translations services and travel to a foreign country, but there are loads of beautiful + amazing places to visit in our country + i would love to have the chance to see + visit a number of them. i just hope mum + dad will have enough budget for these travel adventures!  :Pleasure:

where do you plan to travel next this month?

kids in doodles: kids have fun at robot zoo

out + about, weekend, educational places for children to visit, kids in doodles

mum, tita isabel + i went to moa 2 saturdays ago to check out the robot zoo! + to say that i had fun is really an understatement, i had a blast! i love animals, so i was really amazed when i saw these huge animal robots, as well as learn about a lot of so many things! among the big robot animals we saw are ~ giraffe, chameleon, grasshopper, platypus, bat, house fly,  + squid! we are also taught how some body parts of these animals work! i get to push a few button to make the chameleon’s body move! how cool is that? 😉

aside from the wonderful animals, i also get to try out a lot of cool games, including this one which is called jet propelled, which should also be called the racing squids, for obvious reason. you get to push a lever to get your squid moving + the first squid to reach the finish line wins the game. i was no match to the older kids who seem to have mastered the game earlier on, but it was really fun.  i have also get to try a dozen nuts + bolts + levers!

there was also a small program after the robot zoo tour, where kids also get to play fun games. i was just having fun while my group is busy assembling the longest line possible so we can win the game. we were not lucky, though, but were also able to bring home nice nickelodeon goodies. 🙂
