If there is one area in our preschool homeschooling journey I’m not confident about, it’s arts and crafts. While waiting for our renovation work to be done, I’m beginning to prepare for the first quarter of my home school class. I claim no original ideas. I base all my ideas on this book: Creative Resources […]

These are the things I learned when we brought our 23 month old baby girl to Hong Kong for five days. We had a blast during our trip and up to now, she keeps on mentioning that she wants to go back to Hong Kong! 1. Plan your itinerary well. Research in advance and slow […]

Skye’s second birthday is coming up. So before that big event happens (and airlines charge her the full fare), we have got to go out of the country once more! This time, we are going back to one of our favorite places: Hong Kong. I planned our itinerary with a toddler in mind. One major […]

This is the hardest blog to write… There is not much to tell. We just walked around aimlessly until we found a super nice supermarket in Namba and decided to splurge for our last dinner in town Fil cooked this ultra expensive beef perfectly! Walked out for quick coffee after dinner. Dalvin left […]

An impromptu visit to Kobe, that’s what we did. Dalvin invited us to join him for lunch in Kobe and simply visit the aquarium late in the afternoon. No regrets at all. In fact, I was wondering why going to Kobe wasn’t part of my itinerary at all. Instead of renting a traditional […]

This blog is a continuation of my Osaka-Kyoto blog. Writing travel blogs not only helps me count my blessings, it also serves as a journal of sorts. When people ask me about a trip I made five years ago, for example, I cannot share anything concrete until I re-read my blog about it and see […]

We played tourist: we brought out our cameras to “hunt” and “shoot” Geisha… genuine Geisha and Maiko! Before anyone berate me for this, let me assure you that we were discreet. More discreet than other tourists. We followed the rules when scouting geisha. But wait. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me share our day […]
