Yesterday was all busy and tiring day for me and Maan because we visited Paradise Ranch and Lola Corazon Leisure Farm for her fieldtrip in school. It felt like I've never been so tired in my whole life but only because of all the activities yesterday, now I'm feeling so tired with aching body but I already had my massage this afternoon. Honestly, I might be feeling a bit bad right now but I can say it's all worth it because me and Maan had too much fun.
The traveling hours from Manila to Pampanga is approximately 3 to 4 hours depending on traffic. So, we decided to eat some snacks while feeling so excited to see the place, since I've never been to Pampanga (the culinary capital of the Philippines). At first, I never knew what to expect but I was thinking I'm going to just go with the flow and have fun.
The first stopped was the Paradise Ranch, we got the chance to watch some aetas danced their native dance. Although, I don't have their pic or videos I learned a lot from them. Aeta or Ita was the first tribe that actually lived in the Philippines, until now most of them stays in the mountains and continue the way they live hundreds years ago. They hunt animals to eat and they don't have good education but some of them like the aetas we met, they want to share their culture with other people and learn new things and knowledge that will help them grow. They have different dance like frog dance, mosquito dance, hunt dance, and so much more. ..
Maan's teacher adviser helped her in planting this small tree and hopefully it will grow and bloom after some times. This kind of activity helps the new generations of students to learn what's the important of planting a tree especially that it plays a big role in preventing soil erosion, flood and having a clean air.
Then we left the place before lunch time. And we headed to Lola Corazon, leisure farm where we ate lunch and continued our day.
This beautiful swimming pool was the first attraction we saw when we got inside the farm and from the moment I saw this view, I was in awe and I felt like I want to stay here as much as I can. It didn't happen though...
But me and Maan had a chance to sit there for a while and rest a little bit longer before we headed and joined some activities they're offering on the other side of the farm.
There's no doubt I'm a big fan of nature and photography, I believed that you don't need an expensive camera to shoot because the beauty of your surroundings will show in any angle if you love capturing the moment.
I was sitting there and feeling the breeze on my skin while the sun was trying to get through the shadow of those coconut and palm trees but I don't mind because that very moment my mind was trying to bring me somewhere else in this world.
Anyway, some of the attractions are the hanging bridge, amusement park, fish pond, zipline and they have nippa huts so you can relax whenever you feel tired.
Then she tried to ride in a swing.... and played so many games....
And this amazing view.
Thank you folks for stopping by and see you again next time.
Also, I wanna thank God for making us safe on our field trip last November 13. At the same time I'm sending prayers to those who lost their loved ones in Paris and of the whole world.
We can live life to the fullest and share it with others, that's why everyday I'm wishing if only we can live in true peace for sure life will be so much happier!
