A Day with the Santos Family

Posted by abie on 1:52 AM in ,
Our family friend from Canada together with his family came to Manila last March for a short vacation. It has been years since he last set foot in the Philippines and it is actually the first time for his wife and kids. So they really had a busy schedule going to the different places here in the Philippines as well as visiting relatives whom they haven’t seen in a long time.

That is why I am very glad that they were able to spend one whole day with us. My husband and I were choosing between Subic and Tagaytay for our quick getaway with them but Tagaytay won as we figured they might find it too hot and uncomfortable if we go to Ocean Adventure or Zoobic Safari in Subic.

We just wanted a relaxing afternoon since they are still battling jet lag plus they just got back from Boracay. So we fetched them at their hotel and we drive to Tagaytay. We first went to Pamana restaurant for an early lunch and we took them to Picnic Grove after since we wanted them to try out the Zipline.

After our thrilling zipline ride, the kids went horseback riding so they can go around and have a good view of the Taal Lake and volcano.
Then we went to Cliffhouse and had our afternoon snack at Café Breton. After eating merienda, they are still in the move for another adventure and so we brought them to Nuvali where the kids feed the kois and then we went shopping after at Paseo de Sta Rosa. We ended the night with a dinner at Racks and then we brought them to their hotel afterwards.
I hope that they can come and visit us more often and we are looking forward to our next getaway with you guys.


Hi5 for Cobi's 3rd Birthday

Posted by abie on 8:02 AM in ,
In two months, my youngest will be celebrating his 3rd birthday. We are planning for a small party for him and we will be booking Shakey's as the party venue.

You wouldn't think that he will have a say when it comes to the party theme, but he does. When we asked him what theme he wants for his party, he answered without hesitation that he wants a Hi5 party.

So this means that it will be a party filled with lots of song and dance numbers. That is why the husband is busy now looking for fender jaguar at guitar center as he will be performing with Cobi and they will sing "Live While We're Young" by One Direction band.

I have also booked Jives, the sing and dance group, to provide a mini concert for the kids with some of Hi5 songs.

I am so excited and I am sure that this party will be a blast.
