Me and my daughter and friends had a recent adventure at Hoyohoy Stone Chapel resort where we really had a grand time together. We had gone hiking, ziplining, off the road challenge, and lots of picture taking. The place have a very wonderful view of nature. You can experience firsthand the wonderful creation of the Lord. Their lawns and gardens were trimmed that you would even find some garden frog statues and other statues.
Dimple and I also had the best of times discovering some new places together. Hunting for restaurants that offer cheap but scrumptious meals led our tummy always full but our pockets were never emptied. That was super exciting. We had stumbled up on a vintage shop that sells unique crafts that we find too adorable we couldn’t resist buying at least a piece.
It has been a wonderful experience for all of us. Traveling together as a family foster family relationship. You get to discover each other’s interests. You get the chance to know more of each other. You get all the time to become not only as a family, but, become great friends.
With the holiday season fast approaching, parents are starting to come up with lists on what to give to their kids and other family members. For the kids, the obvious choice is toys. Who wouldn’t love toys. They’re a delight to every kids. Toys can be a stimulating factor to develop their cognitive thinking and abilities. It can help them to be creative and to develop their logical reasoning.
Nowadays, the industry is flooded with a cornucopia of toys that may seemed relevant to the growth and mental aspects of our children. As parents, we have to be smart in choosing what particular type of toys can offer both play and learn to our kids. For toddlers, toys that have bright colors such as building blocks can enhance their senses. For bigger kids like teens, aside from gadgets, try picking up guitar modeling technology for teens who are showing interest in music and musical instruments.
I will share this information with my daughter the next time she comes home. I bet this will be good for her as she plays better than I.
Good thing we got something to wear to shield our eyes from the glare of the sun. Personally, I really feel uncomfortable when I am out and my eyes are not protected. I blame it on the nature of my work, my eyes cannot stand a strong glare from the sun even the early hours of the morning glare, you can’t find my eyes anymore because I will be squinting.
This photo was taken last month while in Gingoog City. The sun was high and good thing I have carried my sun glasses with me but later in the day, thi was broken. I was so sad. When everything is so uncomfortably hot, I get disoriented and I tend to misplaced my stuff. Good thing I still have 2 extra glasses left at home and that is what I am using now. Still from Firmoo. But if ever I will have enough funds, purchasing one of the native sun glasses I saw online would not be that bad.
It’s been my wish to have a house with spacious grounds in front and in the back. The front lawn can be used as partly garden and also party playground. I have several friends who have my ideal type of spacious ground and one of them was told me that she is trying to look for garden furniture that would make her garden homey anytime of the day. I don’t have news yet that she has already found one, not until when I saw this photo here.
This is my daughter and her cousins during their visit to the Disneyland in HK. When i saw the seat, I then have the idea what type of garden furniture I will buy in the future.
Christms is still six months away but I cannot help but admire this little thingy . I love Christmas decor stuff. It’s been three years since the last time a tree is up in our home. But since my nephew is now three years old, I hope that he will be big enough to just admire a tree if ever we will have a tree up this coming December. I really missed having a tree so maybe I should order some of this cutie little thing for Christmas. As me where to find Charming tails? They are online. You can find lots of them and possibly they are on sale because it is still six months away before Christmas. Check it now while supply lasts.

When I think of Universal Studios, I think of the rides, the luge, the food, the mascots and the characters portrayed in real life. It was just so funny that when I read about Universal Audio guitar center, my thoughts were on Universal Studios and not on guitars and guitar accessories. Of course, it’s simple recall. It’s easier to remember Universal Studios when you have kids who you would like to take there again and again, for the fun an bonding moments while they are still kids. When they’re all grown, I am sure associations of places or things will be much different. I just hope it will be of good things, happy memories and not some tragic ones.. All the best for our kids– that’s what all mothers yearn for.
Kids these days are highly energetic and creative. Some of them may simply sit all day and play games on the personal computer, the Internet and their hand held gadgets, they display some degree of creativity. I mean, come on, it takes a whole bag of creative juices to strategically win a battle with the computer. And even if they lose all of that, they can still be creative, especially when bored.
That’s why, as parents, we need to give them our full support by providing them a venue to be creative just like enrolling them in music school. Sometimes, what they do may not be as logical for us, or as cute or useful, according to our standards and understanding, but try asking a child about his or her creation, given full attention, then you will realize that even if you’ll simply buy Eventide, the child can do something much more creative than how it’s supposed to be for. Who knows? You may just have a one man band living under your roof.
The girl will continue her piano lessons this year and hopefully by next summer, she will begin violin lessons.
