Washington, D.C

No surprise that I started to love the ideas of small travels. It started when we had that long drive to Virginia to see some relatives and that was the first time we traveled out of the state ~ besides New York and Pennsylvania.

We packed our clothes two days before we leave that’s how excited I am to see kids and relatives that we haven’t seen in months or more likely in a year.


Jumpyard | Philippines

I saw posts about an indoor trampoline park before we actually flew for our vacation and was curious about it and I told my sisters about it and they were so game about it. So then when we had our vacation in the Philippines, we got the time and privilege to go to one of their branches.

It was the 19th of December when we decided to visit San Fernando branch of Jump Yard. Located at Paseo Las Palmas, Jose Abad Santos Ave., San Fernando, Pampanga.

The place has three like activity center for any ages. But we decided to go with the Indoor Trampoline Park. To check out the other activities here are some of their links: Lazer Maxx and Fun Ranch.

National Shrine of the Divine Mercy | Philippines

On December 30th, my family and I drove an hour or two to Marilao, Bulacan to hear a mass. We got ready around 4 AM and was ready for the road after an hour, we then arrived the place at around 7 AM or so. And far as I could remember, it was my first time in the church. But then, my parents told us that we’ve already visited the church once, when we were young and when half of the church was still under construction, I think.

We came in early for the next mass, so we waited and walked around the place and was really fascinated by the place. 

Monasterio De Tarlac | Philippines

Have you heard of the famous Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil? If yes, isn’t one of the greatest statue ever? I wanted to see that with my own eyes, but having to travel to Brazil will sure cost me a lot. So luckily when we had our vacation in the Philippines, we got to see the Statue of the Risen Christ. A thirty-foot statue that resembles the one in Brazil, read rest of the Monasterio de Tarlac in Wiki [here].

I didn’t have to book a flight to Brazil to see the statue and I know it’s not the replica of it, but hey it’s similar to the one they have in Brazil. Right? The municipality of Tarlac City has its own rendition of the said statue.
