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?

grown up stuff, tips + tricks, Valentine's, occasions, gift ideas

Can you believe how quickly time flies? We’re just about to bid goodbye to the first month of the year and embracing February, the love month. A lot of people are probably busy right now thinking of what thoughtful + special presents to give their loved ones come Valentine’s Day. If you’d ask me, toys will always be the best gift for little ones like me whatever the occasions may be, but that is just me, of course!

Here are a few awesome Valentine’s Day gifts most people will appreciate to receive on the most romantic season of all:

  1. Valentine’s Day gift baskets ~ a basket filled with beautiful stuff like bears, flowers, as well as with chocolates and special candies will definitely make any receiver’s heart flutter. I am sure anyone who receive this gift {the basket pictured above} will feel mostly special + loved.
  2. A Romantic Getaway ~ nothing will make someone feel more special than whisking her off to a beautiful destination for a quick Valentine’s Day getaway. There is probably a place she’s been planning to visit or a new attraction she would like to check out, Valentine’s Day is the best time to plan that trip or visit.
  3. Concert Tickets Valentine’s is also that time of year when there are loads of concerts being held everywhere. Perhaps his or her favorite artist is scheduled to play somewhere + bringing him or her to the show will most definitely a very great Valentine’s Day gift!
  4. A Day at the spa ~ our mums + dads work hard everyday, that is why giving them gift certificates to go to the spa on Valentine’s will be a great idea, + something that they will definitely like. I am sure they will thank you for the opportunity to rest + relax even just for a little while.
  5. A Dinner Cruise ~ i’ve asked mum a few times if we can go back to the cruise we went to a couple of years back, + am sure going back there on Valentine’s will really be romantic. Imagine the big blue sea in your midst, a string quartet playing beautiful love songs, the scenic sunset, delicious food, + the perfect company, a dinner aboard a ship has all the elements of a romantic date, which is just perfect for Valentine’s!
