catching up

It's been a while since I made my last entry. I've really been busy couple of weeks ago settling up the requirements for my health insurance and some stuffs like that. Moreover, my mother made a visit here so I was fully occupied to make her stay here memorable and fun.

Tomorrow, we plan to go to a botanical garden which is more than an hour drive away from our apartment. Well I'm really hoping that this will push through and wishing that the weather will be fine too.

till my next update!

Tagaytay - Second Summer Capital of the Philippines

Tagaytay is my favorite place to visit for so many reasons: nice weather, near to our home, delicious bulalo, relaxing view, the best varieties of fruits and vegetables, cheap food, etc. That's why everytime I come home from abroad, I never missed going here with my family and friends. In fact, I went here twice during my Holy Week vacation in the Philippines. Inspite of my short vacation time, which is only three weeks, I managed to spend two days to the "Second Summer Capital of the Philippines".

Kids Friendly Playground in Sydney

There are numerous attractive clean parks to enjoy in Sydney which includes large grass area suitable for family picnic, bike track, as well as safe playground for the children. It appears that every suburb has at least one or two park and playground that shows people here have strong family-oriented culture.

I always enjoy bringing my son to the playground as I can sit back there and relax while my kid romp and overly delighted with different playground’s equipment suitable for all ages. It includes swings, slides, sea saw, climbing frames, sandpits, saucer swings and many more. Some playground also features music area where my little one can play piano or beat the drums. The ground surface is usually soft, made in rubber or grass making it safe for the children.

Aside from having fun, playgrounds provide my son with a range of benefits such as socializing with other children, learning to cooperate and most importantly playing independently. That’s why my partner and I like to bring him to the park thrice a week and look for different places with great playground!

Bay for the Kids

Sydney weather is unpredictable, it’s now summer season but it does often rain on weekend. Of course everyone prefers fine weather as most people take the weekend off and that’s the good time to stroll. But there are instances that it’s very hot, temperature exceeding 30 degrees C. Well, expect tons of people going to the beach or bay. Who wouldn’t love beach anyway? Warm sands between your toes, warm weather, and hot girls in bikinis as most men say.

Sydney offers marvellous beach destinations. If you are a sporty one, there are numerous water sports for you and if you are a nature lover, you can find scenery beaches and cliffs for gorgeous scope. If you have small kids, another option is to go to the bay. There I would recommend Botany Bay in La Perouse. My family used to go to there during hot weather coz of its cool breeze air and my son can play around in the water safely. It's rarely become crowded. We love sitting under the bridge as it gives shade to cover us enough from the sun. The most important thing is that there's free parking at the the top of the cliff.

Bloggers Site Redirected to Unknown Site

I was checking my blog site using my iphone to check if I've got new friends who joined in my blog when suddenly it was redirected to deplayer.net/ptp.html! I immediately turned on my MAC book if the same thing would happen and it did. Now I know my site has been hijacked. I thought this could be an IFRAME tag inserted in my html page; but I wasn't able to check it as I'm using Safari not Internet Expolorer.

I googled it right away to look for solution and sighted a forum discussing the same dilemma as mine. It says that it's something to do with the widgets/gadgets. I think about the gadgets I have recently added; It could be the blogger list and the Avril song. Without a second thought, I removed these to and viewed my site again backed to normal. It was now fixed!

They say that searching in the net may at times get your computer compromised, but it is a known fact that in using it, you can find most comprehensive resolution.

Kiama's famous Blowhole

Blowhole is one of the tourist attractions you must see if you are visiting Kiama, south of Wollongong on the New South Wales South Coast.  It blows water over the height of about 60 metres. It is great to see this miraculous plumes of water, not to mention the restaurants nearby that offer succulent foods! It has also rock pool, picnic area and playground few minutes away from the blow hole area that kids would enjoy.

It was raining when we got there and the road was foggy that you can barely see the other riders from a distance. We just stayed few minutes to take photos and hoping to take a good shot of rising water in hole. But, I wasn't able to coz of limited time and the rain started to pour again :(. Anyway, we plan to come back there again and hopefully get a nice photo to upload here :)

If I have ever the chance to visit Japan again, I would definitely not miss going to Odaiba. Well, I'd been in love in this place four years ago. Yeah, when I first got there I had this feeling of happiness and contentment..I felt that's where I wanna be..I felt complete....sounds corny but it's true...really so love this place!

Odaiba has several tourist attractions such as entertainment and shopping malls like Aquacity, Palette Town, Decks Tokyo beach and Venus Fort. There's also the Seaside Park which overlooks the Rainbow bridge, the Fuji TV and museums.
