Hello! Happy mid-week!
Okay, bad mummy confession time! I did not let Aki join the school’s field trip this year. I found the 800 peso per person fee unreasonable. If Franco, Aki and I joined, that would be 2400 bucks. I probably would have considered if they were going to a museum or to a factory. However, since the itinerary involved going to 2 farms and 1 zoo, I thought there is not much new for Aki to learn since we have a vegetable garden and have been to a couple of zoos and farms.
To make up for it, I arrange our very own family field trip to a museum. The most kid-friendly in town is Museong Pambata.
At the entrance, we were greeted by this giant whale. Or is it a butanding?
There are 6 viewing rooms in Museo. We were not able to visit one of them because it was being rented for a party.
The first room that we went to was all about the Spanish colonization era.
Aki had no idea that he was talking to Andres Bonifacio.
When we were there, there was an ongoing free craft activity. I think they regularly hold tissue paper roll craft workshops every Sunday.
And look, a cute bahay kubo and toy veggies from the Bahat Kubo song.
It was in this room that Aki’s fascination with shells started.
Aki held on to his white towel for the rest of the day until the next day. No one was allowed to touch his “shell”
Outside there was a dainty garden which reminded me of my container gardening project last year.
I am still gardening in case you are wondering but most of my plants are planted directly to my plots.
The next room was all about the human body.
Aki is all smiles here but he actually hated that room. Hahaha
Our favorite part of the museum was the marketplace.

Me thinks Museo makes a great venue for playdates. Rache, Faye, Erl and other mommy friends, whatchatink?
