One of our most memorable family vacations happened in summer 2016. We went to Manila and right after my brother fetched us from the airport, he dropped us in Art in Island. We decided to eat our lunch there coz it was almost 1pm. But upon arrival, we couldn’t resist taking and posing some pics of the stunning artworks.
We took a break when we couldn’t hold on to our hunger and spent the whole afternoon til evening clicking our cellphones and cameras and striking poses to different paintings. Let our pictures below tell a story:
My daughters had a grand time appreciating art. I was even worried for my youngest because she might have tantrums if we stayed longer in one place. Fortunately, she didn’t. She just took a nap when she felt sleepy so I let her rest in my lap and chest. And when she woke up, we continued to tour the place.
Hubby had fun himself, too, the mere fact that he was quite a party-pooper (blaah, haha), you could tell from the pictures he had fun.
I still have lots of pictures in my folder but I guess I will just post a few as not to bore my readers. If you have not visited Art in Island yet, I suggest you should. Just make sure to bring socks with you (although they sell at the entrance in case you forgot) or you could just go barefoot, which I will not recommend since the floor’s cold. Also, bring some jacket with you if you don’t want to feel cold inside.
Another tips to the family with kids: make sure to bring your children’s school IDs to avail their discounted rate. Have Fun!!!
My family and I will be having a 1 week vacation next month but I haven’t think of things to pack yet. I know it’s a bit early to worry now but anybody should I guess worry when you are going to bring a 2 year old tot. I’ve read or heard from some people that they don’t bring kids with them. They decided to leave their kids at home, especially if they’re too young, but in my case, I just cannot afford to leave my little one. Better we all stay or travel together so that my mind won’t be anywhere else.
This trip was already arranged since May and I can’t believe it’s almost near. I decided to book us flight as the fare was really low at that time. And we didn’t have a grand vacation lately so we might as well utilize the opportunity to travel. I’ll definitely post some pictures soon because this is also my little tot’s first airplane ride. My eldest is 9 years old and she’s looking forward for another ride on the plane. I pray that everything’s safe by then. I hope and pray that the weather is good and we will all be safe and have fun to the place of our destination 😉
February 2010 we went to Manila for a short vacation. I was about 4 months pregnant with Zoe. When we arrived in Manila, my cousin fetched us at the airport and we headed to Mall of Asia right away, the largest mall in the Philippines and 4th largest Mall in the world. And since my daughter was too eager to Star City, my cousin drove us there.
Chloe wanted to experience snow at Snow World so we went there. When inside, she wanted to go out right away for it was freezing cold. We managed to have our picture taken before we finally went out.
