We spent Earth Hour at our friends house. It was a welcome change from the usual stay at home since the kids get to enjoy the company of other kids and enjoy global action to change. It was like camping under the moonlight. Here are the kids enjoying the food as they await the lights off.
They played with glow sticks and ate all night long. It was truly an enjoyable night with close friends as we do it for a worthy cause.
Sunday was the day we celebrated my Mom’s birthday by checking in one of the nearby hotels. The kids had a blast as they go in for a dip in the pool with my sister.
We ended the night by having dinner at Arya Persian Restaurant.
To the greatest woman in my life… Happy, Happy Birthday! I LOVE YOU!

As a child, I have memories of my family visiting Luneta Park or Rizal Park and even having my picture taken at that place. Luneta is where the monument of our national hero, Jose Rizal is located. As a Filipino, I just feel that my kids should visit the place to have a sense of nationalism.
Last Saturday, I decided to take them there. More than the reason above, it’s also an excuse for me to take photos for my photography class. Luneta has changed a lot the last time I was there. It’s actually a lot cleaner than I remembered.
The first photo is a picture of my son riding the Kalesa — a horse driven carriage introduced in the Philippines during the 18th century. It is no longer a popular form of transportation, you hardly see them in the Metro except for tourist spots like this. The kutsero or the kalesa driver was so friendly, he actually allowed my son to be the kutsero during our ride. It was truly an exciting experience for my ten year old.
My kids are never afraid of animals which is a good thing — they just love to caress and play with them. Here you can see them enjoying their time with the horse.
One good thing about trips like this is that I can see my kids enjoying each others company. And as a mom, it’s a joy to see them like that.
I would have wanted to catch the sunset by the bay, but my boy insisted to ride the train that was going around the park… How can I resist?
I just have to settle with this sunset photo….
It was quite a tiring day for me and the kids but it was all worth it. Seeing the smile on their faces, I know this weekend will be part of their childhood memories.
How about you? How did your weekend go?

If there’s one thing Hubs and I enjoy together, it’s Bowling. Although, I am not the sporty type of person I have enjoyed bowling so much. Even though we both did not go through any proper training, we enjoy this sport so much that it became our stress buster.
And here’s a trophy I won in the first competition I joined…
Happy weekend y’all!
