All is Well, When Aim's Well

Despite not feeling well the past 2 days, our 4-year old Aim has, time and again, made us smile with his witty charm and innocent remarks.

Scene 1
Aim saw the plastic container of the cookies that our Hongkong factory manager gave me last month and went to ask me a question.

Aim      : (Holding up the container) Daddy, how much is this?
me       : I think it should be around 20 Hongkong dollar.
Aim      : Aaah, twenty na parang car.........honk honk...

Scene 2
As I was wiping his forehead with a wet face towel due to his light fever, I asked him if he was feeling cold or hot.

Aim       : I think I feel cold.
me        : You feel cold? 
Aim       : Ay hot pala?
me        : What is correct, you feel cold or you feel hot?
Aim       : Daddy, I feel cold and hot na lang.

Nayong Pilipino

On Dec 30, 2015,  we went to Nayong Filipino in Clark, Pampanga where I learned new stuffs like dancing the Tinikling, a Filipino folk dance, how the old Philippine villages looked like for the Aetas, Ifugaos and the Kalingas. I even saw a small Banawe rice terraces.

We also saw the replica houses of our three heroes named Dr Jose Rizal, Gen. Emilo Aguinaldo and Apolinario Mabini, the brains of the katipunan. Next we went to the Barasoain church. It looked just like our church in Malolos! Beside that is the Teatro, the place where the cultural dancing show by lively Filipino dancers was shown. After that, we went to the museum of old clothes (Museo ng Nayon). Next, we saw an orchidarium and even a laboratory for plants breeding.

Before leaving, we bought a sungka board and a lot of bird whistle for our New Year celebration tomorrow.

Wakeboards Up!

Just do it.

On Dec 31 2015 we went to Deca Wakeboard Park ( ) in Angeles City. It was our first time so we were excited and a bit scared. We went there in the morning after breakfast so not so many people will be there.

There are two kind of wake boarding areas, the beginners and the experts zone. We were at the beginner stage. It was a straigth body water where one can just go around. The expert zone is such a big one where there are even a couple of ramps.

At first, we kept flopping but we kept practicing. We listened to the wake boarding guide until we made it to the end. My mom took videos of us as remembrance. 

It was fun.

The tricks for a good wake boarding are:
1. Toes up
2. Move your board right
3. Hold the handle tightly but don’t pull back.
4. Sit down during the wake boarding
5. Make a strong grip on the handle and push your heel into your board to move left or right.
