One of the playdates the Princess had this summer was at DreamPlay, City of Dreams in Pasay. The first time we went there was on a school field trip, so we had limited time to explore. This time around, however, after an early morning swim and a quick brunch at the Nobu Hotel pool, we practically devoted the entire afternoon to exploring and enjoying DreamPlay.

Those cafés which are small and cozy, homey, tucked away, and serve reeeally good coffee to boot?  If you can’t quite put your finger on such a place, then head on over to Magnum Opus.

On Flowers and Milkshakes: 2-on-1 parent time with your child

One of the things I really love about weekends is that we get to spend time as a family.  The hubby and I try to put work aside, and I’m thankful that for most of the year, the Princess doesn’t have to do schoolwork over the weekend.  I admit that often though, most of our attention diverts to the little one during family timeespecially when he’s running around or wants to eat. So, we decided to consciously make an effort to schedule both 2-on-1 and 1-on-1 time with the little Princess. Continue reading “On Flowers and Milkshakes: 2-on-1 parent time with your child”
