Visit to Splash Island Biñan, Laguna for Semestral Break Fun

I mentioned in a past post about supermoms that I will be talking about our visit to Splash Island, Laguna during the last semestral break.  I didn’t have the chance to write this post immediately, but I’m writing it now even if it’s quite late.

Why did we choose Splash Island?

First of all, my kids like swimming and I wanted to treat them to some fun activity during the semestral break.  Second, we want to go somewhere we have never been to before. Third, we have saved enough money for recreation since we started doing so in January. How much? Well, we saved P20 per day, so you can make a smart guess how much.

Lastly, we got the Splash Island tickets at a discounted price. It was at least P50-80 cheaper than if you would buy it from the Splash Island ticket booth. I got them from Ensogo. Ensogo is a site offering time-sensitive discount coupons to various products and services, travel packages and food treats. If you wish to get updates on their deals and offers, you can subscribe to their updates for free. It’s a good way to save money on some things you would like to buy or try out anyway.

Splash Island Review

Usually before buying something, I check out to see if there are reviews posted online. This time I think I was too excited about going to Splash Island that I bought the tickets before actually reading any review.  Then, when I read some Splash Island reviews, I was a bit disappointed because they were not all that good. But, since we already have the tickets, and the kids were already excited about it, I kept up my hope.

After having gone to Splash Island with my family plus my in-law’s family, here’s my review.

Overall, we had fun especially the kids and their cousins. When we arrived at the place, there weren’t that many people, perhaps it’s because it is the sem break and many people went home to their provinces. That is actually good for us because one review I read said that they did not enjoy themselves at Splash Island because of the long queues.

Pools and Slides

There were a number of pools and slides to enjoy. My kids like the kiddie pool with mini slide and fountains. It was only about 2 feet deep.

We also like the wave pool. As my daughter said, it was like enjoying the waves in a beach and it was like surfing.

My tweens and teen kids together with their cousins enjoyed the adventure of trying out all the giant and swirling slides. As I mentioned above, it was good that there were not that many people because my kids had enjoyed doing the slides over and over again without waiting too long.

Some of the slides were not accessible all the time. There is a schedule being followed that is posted in a designated place in the resort. Here are some photos of the teens and kids having fun with the different slides.

Food and Cottage

Bringing food into the resort is not allowed, so you either buy from the food court inside or you go out to the parking lot and eat the food that you brought along. As for us, we brought food and ate in the parking lot. There are others we saw who had a picnic under the shade of a nearby tree.

There are tables and chairs under tents that people can use for free. But if you wish to have a little privacy,  regular nipa huts are rented for P1,000 and air-conditioned nipa huts are rented for P1.500 or P2,000. We chose the regular nipa hut since everyone do not really stay long at the nipa hut but roam around the different slides.

There are lockers for rent, too. But we did not avail anymore. We just made sure that 1 or 2 persons will be staying at the nipa hut while the others have fun.

First aid

It’s unfortunate that my daughter had an accident. Her cousin bumped into her and she fell, leaving her with wounds on her left knee and elbow. It’s a good thing that the resort offers first aid assistance. The nurse cleaned her wound and put betadine and antibiotic ointment.

So, are we going back again?

Well, my children want to go back again to Splash Island given the chance. Perhaps, we could go there again when there’s a promo price and at a time when the place is not so crowded. In case you need more info about Splash Island, you can visit their website.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
