Fun Swimming at Rave Water Park Pasig

Summer is almost over. My 2 boys are back to school, while the 3 girls will begin their classes on the 15th. Even with the start of school days, we wanted to have our last summer hirit or hurrah.

Huling hirti this summer. My girls had fun swimming

It was also Kuya Yuan’s birthday last weekend. The girls wanted to go swimming, so we decided not to go far. We, together with their lola, aunts, uncle and cousins, went swimming at Pasig’s Rainforest (RAVE) water park.

The last time we went swimming there was in 2012. I personally did not like the place, because it was so crowded and the pool water is dirty.

But this time, we are so happy to see that so much has improved. The place is not so crowded anymore. Well, perhaps, it’s because vacation is over for many. But I think there are other reasons for this.

One is the new rates they are imposing. The entrance fee is now P100 per adult and P50 per child 3 feet and below. That is the rate if you’re a Pasigueno, but if not, there’s a P50 increment on the price.
Another reason is the additional pools they have built. I think before there were just 3 pools, but currently there are 5 pools.

More reasons to like RAVE water park

I also like the fact that the restrooms are very clean and odorless. They have staff maintaining the place really well.

The water park also has visible lifeguards who call the attention of the kids who want to swim in adult pools without someone accompanying them. That’s a plus for child safety. They also are the ones who might call your attention if you’re not wearing the proper swimming attire.

The cottages, which are made of concrete and not nipa huts, are also an addition that was not there in 2012. The rental price is just P500 and can accommodate 15 to 20 persons already. Some cottages also have barbeque grills and faucet/sinks. Bringing in of food is allowed here, which is really perfect for families who want to have some fun swimming with a limited budget. Tables with umbrella and chairs are also available for rent at P200.

Happy birthday, Kuya Yuan

I think we will be coming back more often here, because It’s just 15 minutes away from home and we all had fun. If we don’t have the budget for swimming, we could just enjoy the park and the kids playground for free.

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
