Have you tried going to a concert with your teens? For the first time, I did. And I’m glad it became a nice experience for the three of us. If you are familiar with K-POP, you must know this young boy band EXO and recently, they had a concert here in Manila at The Araneta Center. My kids are avid fans of this group and they were just excited to see their “bias” (the term they use for their favorite band member or idol) in person. I knew it was coming, paying for concert tickets, because they had been fans of other boy...

The kids will be back to school tomorrow and we will be officially back to business. Work at home, house chores and the usual stuff. Before we plunge in, I let my husband satisfy his curiosity in this vintage shop he was eyeing for so long to visit. It was somewhere K-1st Street near Kamuning Northwest Estate and Collectibles. You may click the name to be directed to its Facebook page. It was a house open to public and it was filled with vintage LPs, cds, casette tapes, toys, cards, comics and a little bit of home stuff like jars, salt...

If you miss watching a live breathtaking show, I do suggest that you watch the LeGrand Cirque showing this December 25 to January 3 at The Smart Araneta Coliseum. Bring the whole family because you’ll surely regret it leaving anyone at home once you see the show. It has been quite a while when there was a circus shown being shown in Araneta. I only have a faded memory of a circus show I’ve seen once from another theater and it was not even a big production.LeGrandCirque was a one of a kind show because there had been no...

Going to The Araneta Center every Christmas has been an annual tradition in the family. Aside from the shopping malls surrounding the area, there’s an overall Holiday feeling when you are there. There are lights everywhere, there’s a giant Christmas tree, and of course, the yearly holiday show in Araneta Center. This year, they won’t be showing a Disney on ice show, but something different and a first-ever show. It’s the Legrand Cirque show ! I am actually looking forward to this kind of show. I remember when I...

We all need vacations and we don’t owe anyone an explanation when we feel we just like to break the monotony of our days or we want some kind of a refreshing break. We’ve experienced that several times, when we wish that we can just disappear for a night, be in a different environment and just forget whatever it is that was overwhelming us. But most of the times, the problem comes with the lack of budget. Some hotels may either be a little bit expensive or just too distant we drop the idea of leaving the moment we think of...

If you are planning your holiday trips this December, don’t forget to visit The Mind Museum’s 5th traveling exhibition Science Circus: Step Right Up! which is supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center. The Science Circus: Step Right Up! showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind. While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring...

I had been keeping my Gift Certificates to The Spa for a long time. I didn’t have an idea that my first visit at this place will be one of the best day-off experience for me ever! We’d planned for Joy’s birthday a month before. As the three of us are all very busy work at home moms, add it up that we are also active bloggers, all our meet-up schedules need to be carefully planned.  Joy treated us for a lunch buffet in Vikings, Louisa paid for our movies, and I used my gift cards to The Spa. Joy even had to work that...

Watching Annie being performed on stage was a huge experience for me. Annie is but after all the first movie I’ve seen in the cinema back in 1982. Diba, when you are a child, everything seems to be so big for you? That’s how I see this movie back then. The movie theater was a gigantic place and there I was watching giant people on screen. But I remember that part when Annie sang “Tomorrow” and until now, I sing it whenever I can. My kids sing it too because it was one of the first songs I taught them. 1982 Annie...
