Unlimited fun ride


The kids are excited about visiting Star City again this or next weekend. Dad got another set of complimentary tickets from the office. We haven’t gone to any place last Christmas to treat the kids, so Dad decided to reserve a few tickets. It will be a day of fun. The kids would surely enjoy the rides. I’m just as excited as them. No work on that day. Weee!

Practical travel tips for the whole family

I’m not a travel planning expert, but here are some tips I can share with you if you want to treat your family for a vacation without breaking the bank.

  1. Find inexpensive locations that will be enjoyed by the whole family.
  2. Schedule a vacation during off peak seasons because rates are almost half priced lower than regular rates.
  3. Look for promo packages that are available on the Internet one of which is groupon deals budget/family
    travel. There are always deals that are available online. Just make sure that you read the requirements well just to be sure.

Planning where you would like to go is also important because it will be easier to narrow down your search for the best deals online. When you are able to travel without spending too much, it is likely that you would like to take more vacations in the future.


Barangay Fiesta is one of the few occasions I really look forward to when I was young. In our barangay, the fiesta falls on January 1 so we’re actually celebrating two occasions (fiesta and New Year that is). Me and my playmates would wait at the side street for the parade, music band or Musiko and Ati-Atihan. Those who love games participate in the palo-sebo and sack race. Fiesta organizers usually prepare cash and trophy cups for the winners. We also love to watch a program held at the plaza where fast and rising artists have been invited to perform. It’s been decades since I visited my hometown and haven’t experienced spending Fiesta with my relatives in a long time.
