road trip 1

the month of october has been delivering surprises to me for the past days before it bids “au revoir“. one of these was turning our monday, october 21 into a family day. why?

declared as a non-class day in san beda due to a convention of sort in the basic education department, this day provided an opportunity for us to accomplish a major task at home  – general housecleaning. with the five pairs of hands doing the job, decluttering became fast and easy. obviously, my husband became satisfied with the result because he decided to just lunch out. beside we had no more time to prepare our meal. following this lunch date at southmall would be our dropping our donations off to philippine national red cross, alabang chapter. then, i expected to go back to our abode for our respective choice of afternoon delight. 🙂 🙂 but, surprise, suprise! the big boss had something concocted which he did not consult me with. 
instead of following the usual route to our residence, he took a detour and announced, “road trip muna tayo.” (let’s have a road trip.) for me, it was the best suggestion to beat the unholy hour! and so, i waited where he would be taking us. being the captain of the ship, my husband need not be questioned. then, i saw the familiar landmarks going to tagaytay city.

i smiled happily, thinking that finally we would already visit the tagaytay puzzle mansion that houses the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle collection owned by gina gil lacuna who is now a guinness (not GINES, hehehehe…) book of world record holder. however, the destination i had in mind was in contrast with larry’s when he turned left to this newest leisure park in the city.

wowoweeee. i braced myself for real bonding moment as i approved of my husband’s pick to unravel the “child in him”.

with my youngest as his sidekick (because they’re the only ones in the family who are not acrophobic), the both of them had only one ride to take.

so while two of my “men” were up there in the sky, i entertained myself with my other two “men” who were down with me on earth by just documenting what local and foreign tourists might find in this amusement park.

ride fees are affordable, so with the 50-peso entrance.

now food kiosks (and fastfood chains around the vicinity) are ready for those who would go for a different kind of ride- i would call it the tummy ride (ha-ha!) – in this park. of course, this amusement park wouldn’t be complete without the horseback riding (sorry, i failed to inquire about the price.)

generally, this SM-developed leisure park was a hit to our family. despite not being a lover of carnivals, i felt several years younger again by just seeing those rides.

the best part of course was the quality time i spent with my “men” which i could only do during long breaks. the short hours we spent there was fully maximized as we made each other feel that simple joys that come during unexpected moments are blessings to be shared, to be savored and to be thankful for.
