We finally went to Museo Pambata for a field trip! I’ve always been postponing this trip since I thought that it won’t be so interesting but I was so wrong. The kids really enjoyed their time at the museum and told me it’s the best museum that they’ve been too. Well, that means they really had tons of fun!

We went there on a Thursday morning and there was no crowd at all. We were by ourselves except on the last portion of the tour when a group of Kindergarten kids came. It’s really good to go there without the crowd because the kids will have ample of time to discover and explore a lot of things. Museo Pambata is an interactive museum where kids can actually touch and tinker with the displays. With a crowd of other children, the kids will tend to be in a hurry and miss out a lot of things.

My kids’ favorite parts of the tour where the My Body Works  and the Marketplace. These were the places where they spent so much of time. The Marketplace was especially fun for them because they like to play ‘market market’ at home with pretend stuff but this time they have the opportunity to have a ‘real’ market all by themselves.

Anyways, If you have children  around 4-12 years old don’t miss to visit Museo pambata and I assure you that your kids will not just learn but enjoy themselves while learning new things.

It has been 4 years since we celebrated Christmas here in Malaysia.  We had our past Christmases in Philippines and Thailand. So, it has been an adjustment for me once again when I didn’t feel that much ‘festivity’ here compared to the Philippines. But, since Christmas is not about us but a celebration for us as we remember how God  has provided Salvation for us through Jesus, then location won’t matter as much. :)

Then, later I realized, festivity is actually much more of a choice so, Hubby and I set some Christmas program for our family on Christmas eve. We started with prayer, reading the account of the birth of Jesus in the book of Luke, then declaration of thanksgiving to God , food, games and gifts! It was a beautiful night with family and we even didn’t realized that it was already 2:30 AM when it ended.

As for the gifts, we didn’t give out korg at Musician’s Friends  , but just simple gifts  for our families to use and remember us.

What about you? How was your Christmas celebrations?

My niece and nephew are here for a week holiday and we originally planned a lot of activities for them. Our first choice was actually letting the kids go to Kidzania but we booked the tickets a bit late and there were no more slots available. So, our second choice was Dream Play. When I searched through the internet about this place, it did have a lot of good reviews and somehow I really didn’t expect so much knowing that the area is quite small. Nevertheless, I know that the kids will have a great time where ever they are.

So we took the 4 hour tickets for our kids and  I didn’t go in with them anymore and just let my Hubby accompany them while I went ‘malling’ with my sis and mom. :) Sure enough, the kids had a great time and my son was even telling me that ‘it’s the best day ever!” . Yes, that was how happy they were.

Basically, the Dream Play is interactive play where the kids learn to create and do stuff while they have a great time. Since my son’s very energetic, he really had a blast doing all the climbing, dancing and jumping. My daughter on the other hand enjoyed the  building of the boats and the library. It was just sad that they we’rent able to bake the Ginger bread man because they only have very limited slots.

All in all, it was a great learning experience for our kids and their cousins.

Here is my daughter’s Lego Music Video of Toby Mac’s song Get Back Up. I’m so happy of how she made this very well. Watch and let us know what you think..

She’s currently doing another music video and I’ll upload it here once she’s done.
