Field Trip

A field trip is one of the school’s extra curricular activities that allows students to explore nature, to enhance social skills, and to learn more about history.  Places like museums, zoo, economic zones, theme parks and national parks are very interesting to visit.

When I was an elementary student, my school organizes field trips or tour.  Because the school has a huge student population, sometimes the tours are grouped according to year levels.  The trip organizers get car rental services for transportation.  And, sometimes, they provide pack lunches for everyone.  The student pays the trip contribution that include transportation, food, and entrance fees.  I remember we went to Rizal Shrine (Luneta) located in the heart of Manila.  It is one of the famous National Park in the Philippines in honor of our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

I enjoyed seeing the animals at the zoo and playing at the playground in the park.  I also remember we went to Intramuros, also known as the Walled City, in Manila.  We visited Fort Santiago where Rizal was imprisoned during his captivity by the Spaniards.  These are only a few of the interesting tourist spots in the Philippines. Schools back home are still encouraging field trips.

If you are planning to have a vacation in my country, do not forget to see Luneta, Intramuros, and the Manila Zoo.

Funny Experience At The Sulo Hotel

It was the happy moment of my full blast lovelife.  My fiance (now husband) came to visit me for the first time in 2008.  We stayed at the Sulo Hotel in Quezon City because the hotel was closer to my uncle’s house where I lived.  He flew via Korean Air (KE).  When I fetched him at the NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) Terminal 2 by the Letter S area, we took the airport taxi straight to Quezon City.  At that time, we paid 750.00 Pesos and gave the driver 500 Pesos tip.

I did all the itinerary planning for his/our entire trip and getaway.  The hotel rate was affordable and transacting with them (reservations and payment) did not cost me any hassle at all.  The customer service was pleasant and we enjoyed staying there.  There was a bar in the hotel where somebody performs-singing and playing musical instruments.  It was funny because I thought the name of the singer was Diwata.  I kept on saying her name as Diwata.  I noticed that my then fiance is chuckling.  So I asked the waiter what’s the singer’s name.  The waiter said, “Barbie”.    I was like, what???  When it was time for us to go back to the room, I read the sign outside the bar and it says “Diwata Cocktail Lounge”.

Anyway, I can say that Sulo Hotel in Quezon City is highly recommended hotel for those who wants to get an accommodation in Quezon City area.

Giving The Home A Fresh Look

Whenever I do house cleaning, I think of my mother’s sister-in-law (aunt) back home. She does a good job in making their home look fresh. ‘Wondering why I am referring to my aunt rather than my mother? Because I lived with her and her family during the years of working in Manila when I was single. My aunt taught me things to make the home look pleasant. And like what my mother always say, it is very important for a woman to maintain home cleanliness and orderliness.

Now that I am a homemaker I am learning the job. Besides doing the household chores, I clean the house on my days off. Rearranging the furniture gives the home a new look, pleasant and warm feeling. Placing home decors in a new appropriate place is also a good interior design idea. Doing this at least three times a year is fine. The most important part of the house for me are the kitchen, bedroom, and the bathroom. Tidying up clutters in the living room makes sense too.
