Campuestohan Highland Resort - A Picture Story

My work allows me to travel to different parts of the Philippines (so I was able to trim down my list of places-to-visit).

One such business travel was in Bacolod City. Bacolod City is soo beautiful and clean. I also got to visit Campuestohan Highland Resort in  Sitio Campuestohan, Brgy. Cabatangan, Talisay City (which is near the boundary of Bacolod and Talisay).

I won't say anything more, just take a look at the pictures.

Giant windmill - still under construction

Teepees and Igloos as accommodations

An Igloo! That's for rent.

There's King Kong overseeing the zipline and sky bicycle rides


Autobots, transform

Wave pool!

Jaws finally caught!!!!

Nice windmill.
These pools are closed - teeming with algae

Nemo or Marlin?

Green minions

Nice!!! I didn't check what's inside

Giant Shark!!!

Giant Higad

The next time you are in Bacolod City, try to visit Campuestohan. Bring a jacket though because it's sort of atop of a hill (or is it a mountain?).  Their blog is very helpful. Check it out.

Artsy Craftsy Time at Kiddy arts SM Moa - a Review

This is an honest review of an activity that my kid tried at Moa the other week.

My little boy begged me to allow him to try this fun art/craft thing at SM Moa. The shop has kiddie tables and chairs that kids would use while doing their fun arts/crafts thing.

They've got this cute designs that a kid can fill with colors then bake, then have the feel of a soft, jelly-like output that... I don't know how to describe. Hahahha! (Basta parang dinidikit sa glass/window na decor).

The little boy got a  drawing (about 6x4 inches) which costs P140. The bigger one is P230. Ayaw kong pumayag sa malaki kasi hindi ko naman alam kung anong kakalabasan.

Mr. Hammerhead was his choice

As the lead agency of the month-long celebration, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) promises treats and discounts for government employees nationwide.
