Field Trip: Visit to Paradizoo

Last February, I accompanied my girls on their field trips. I had to go with them twice to different places except for the Enchanted Kingdom. On the first occasion, I went with Angel to Paradizoo in Tagaytay, Yoki Farm in Cavite and Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. The next Saturday, I went with Kristel and Janel to Emilio Aguinaldo’s house in Kawit, Cavite, the Botanical Garden and a Museum in UP Los Banos and the Enchanted Kingdom.

It was the first time my kids and I joined a field trip. It was arranged by the school with a tour guide, who pretty much entertained us while on the bus with information, games and 1 or 2 movies. It was ok.
Welcome to Paradizoo

For this post, I will share about the Paradizoo visit with photos. I do not actually know the individual fees collected for the venues since the tour guide/school took care of that.  Searching on the internet tells me that it’s P149 per person at Paradizoo. It’s free for kids 3 feet and below.

Paradizoo features different farm animals including the famous 5-legged cow, horses, camel, goat, sheep, rabbits, ostrich, birds, chicken and duck.  They also have a flower garden, vegetable garden, butterfly garden and a honey bee garden.

Aside from having a guided tour of the place, what Angel really enjoyed was the opportunity to ride a pony. It cost P30 for a really very short ride. Then, she also fed the rabbits, goat and camel. The feeding kit/food for the animals cost P30 also. Actually, the kit also included feeds for the ostrich but I was afraid to feed it.

Going into the butterfly garden was really nice. A guy told the kids all about butterflies. We were able to see many butterflies and we also chanced upon seeing a caterpillar.

Some farm products are for sale there — pastillas, fresh vegetables, honey and other assorted items.
I think we stayed in Paradizoo for about an hour only. I guess that was enough time for Angel to get acquainted with some of the farm animals and the flowers she rarely sees.

Visiting Paradizoo is ok for the kids. Though, you probably won’t stay long unless you really like farm animals. At P149, it’s a bit steep, but then you really don’t see farm animals everyday, particularly the camel, sheep and ostrich. If you’re going there, be sure to bring an umbrella or hat, because it’s hot walking under the sun. By the way, walking around was a good exercise, too.

I’ll share more about the other field trip destinations next time.

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
