We were there for the opening event and the kids enjoyed their experience. At around 4PM they had crafts and activities for kids and a short opening program.

We were all so excited for the display of the hot air balloons and it took a bit of time for them to set them all up. Unfortunately, they only set up 4 hot air balloons and it was up (though  not even on the air) for only a very short time. We expected that the ballons will be up the whole night and the public will get a chance to get in it. But I’m not sure whether some things came up on why they were in a hurry to keep the balloons.

And since, it was already late and the kids were already hungry, we didn’t wait for the Balloon Night Glow anymore and just decided to go home. Seeing the hot-air balloons ‘live’ was already enough for us.

This event is only until tomorrow, March 7, 2015 at Jiranakorn Stadium. It’s a free event and I heard they also give a chance for people to ride the balloon, not sure though if there’s a fee and for how long.

Anyways, it’s still worth going there if you have the time. Just seeing the big balloons is already an amazing experience._DSC0012 _DSC0034 _DSC0041 _DSC0046

Family Fun Park , El Salvador

10934001_10152990156087731_6411772323553132421_nYehey, there’s a new recreation destination near Cagayan de Oro. It’s a water park called Family Fun Park in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental. This place is just about 45 minutes from the city. The park which is also going to be a resort, is not completely finished yet, but 2 swimming pools are already operational. As of now, they charge and entrance fee/swimming pool fee  250 Pesos for Adults and 100 Pesos for children. The fees are not consumable and you have to make sure you bring your own food and drinks since their restaurant is not opened yet.

It’s a nice place for the children to swim and I can’t wait for the whole park to be completed since there seems to be a lot of areas that fun!

Watching ‘Raising Asia’

I was intrigued by this show in TLC called ‘Raising Asia’. It’s a documentary on raising an 8 year old pop star called Asia. I can’t believe that the Asia is only 8 years as she seems so mature for her age. There’s no doubt that she’s really a very talented girl without Tattoo Johnny . But somehow in watching the show, I feel sad for her. She’s only 8 years old with wealth and fame, I feel she’s losing her childhood as she’s already treated like an adult – oh, she’s working like an adult too.

I just hope that though her childhood is not ‘normal’ but she will turn out to be a person who’s grounded and won’t end up like other stars who started as kids, who have messy lives now.
