ExpoKid 2017 Discoveries

Summer’s fast approaching! That means it’s time for the kids to explore what’s beyond the four corners of the classroom. Here are a few discoveries we made when we visited ExpoKid last week that you might want to check out:


In this day and age, learning how to make a computer work is a must. In Young Coders, kids as young as 3 years old can learn the fundamentals of operating a computer. Of course, all classes are done in a fun and creative way. Classes start on April 3 and here’s their schedule:

Z would love to join the Junior Astronaut Academy but he’s underage (minimum age is 7). But this is really cool! We’ve all been curious about what astronauts eat in space and how it feels like to walk on the moon. There will be two runs this summer and each costs P11,800 inclusive of: flight suit, cadet kit and astronaut snacks. Schedule is as follows:

April 17 – 21, 2017 | 9 am to 4 pm | Science Centrum, Riverbanks Center, Marikina City

April 24 – 28, 2017 | 9 am to 4 pm | Diliman Preparatory School, Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City

For more info about them, follow them on Facebook or call: 09183675006.


I’m sure your summer get-togethers are all lined up. Why not turn your party into a creative pursuit for the kids?! Kiddie Art Kart offers packages like painting on canvas, foam mosaic art and crown and hat making, which will give the children a few unplugged hours and a chance to create something with their hands.

Another coding class! Junior Academy for Coding Knowledge or JACK aims to provide a high-quality learning experience for children in a fun and engaging environment. I myself want to learn how to let a BB8 droid move or make my own Minecraft-inspired game! Children as young as 7 years old can enroll without any coding experience. Visit their website for the courses offered.

If you’d prefer to stay home to avoid the sweltering heat, Oli’s Boxship can provide hours of fun to your child! It’s a box delivered to your home which has 2-3 activities that centrals around a theme, like solar system or animals. This themed subscription box is designed for kids 4-9 years old and will help develop their intellectual and motor skills while honing their ability to express themselves. I think I’d try one out for Z and Y! A one time subscription costs P980 and it includes all the materials for the activity.

Z and Y enjoyed their yoga session last October and I think it’s a must for kids today to learn yoga since this helps them be calm and focused. Up to now, we try to practice some of the poses, especially when were all agitated.

I hope this list helped you plan out your spectacular 2017 summer!

Goodbye July!

Just a recap of our tedious July!

The end of July saw me starting on a fitness regimen: Pilates! Read about my thoughts about it on this post.
This little girl is learning to play on her own 🙂
My kids are addicted to Snapchat filters. But I don’t know the how-to’s of the app, haha! So I just save their pics and videos, which they like to watch and laugh at!
Been craving for crinkles so bad, turned out the nearest bakeshop had it! Will be posting more #crinkleschronicles on my Instagram. Crave with me!
A strong flu virus had us slowing down at the start of the month. Kids were having fever, coughs and colds alternately so this Mama had to give them full attention! In other news, I’m obsessed with these temporary watercolor tattoos!
Best foodie discovery for the month: McDonald’s Pancakes with Choco-Malt drizzle and crushed Chocolate Cookies!
Eating on her own, choosing clothes to wear, saying “no” to everything… Terrible Twos is here this early! Got to prepare, hahaha!
Yes to more breakfast places <3
Trying to create stuff with my hands so I’m back to Bullet Journal-ing, learning brush lettering and playing with stickers. Should I write more about this?!
Speaking of breakfast, I’ve been having breakfast dates with friends more often. It’s really nice to discover new breakfast places and just being with other moms! Looking forward to the next!

I hope August is just as eventful in a positive way! 2016, please slow down!

Eric Carle Day at Quriocity

I like doing new activities with the kids that veer away from the usual weekend activity (aka going around the mall!). So when I saw ManilaMommy shared Quriocity’s event on Facebook, I had to reserve a slot because it was the culminating activity for their Eric Carle month.

We had so much fun!
We had so much fun!

Quriocity, as I learned is an indieshop which houses quirky and artsy items. They also offer classes and sells hard-to-find books. It’s a place where in your curiosity will be tickled, both for the kids and kids-at-heart!

Small plants and succulents for sale!
So True Naturals available!
For a small group, you can rent out their quaint space for workshops and classes. They also have an in-house coffee shop!

For a fee of P300 per person, we witnessed Eric Carle’s books come alive. Z super enjoyed the puppet show/storytelling of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and even volunteered to be one of the puppeteers! My animal-loving Y got especially drawn to the turtles and birds present. It was really a different experience for them! Showing them other forms of art and entertainment definitely got them curios-er!

The caterpillar turned into a butterfly, Mommy!
Yuuuum! Z was holding one of those, hehe!
My little donya!

I’m looking forward to the next activity Quriocity is planning! There’s just a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that there are more establishments that cater to learning are opening up.
