A trip to The Mind Museum

We visited The Mind Museum during our 2013 Philippines vacation. Tadaah! V remembered our trip to the museum and asked if we have a similar one here in Dubai (still looking). The Mind Museum is located at Taguig City, it is an interactive Science museum that encourages visitors to touch and experience featured exhibits in their five galleries: Life, Atom, Earth, Universe and Technology.  Here’s a glimpse of what we saw inside: Aedi, the robot – welcomed all guest’s and talked about the exhibits we’ll get to see inside the museum.

HK Trip: Disneyland Resort

*This is a part of a series post about our family trip to Hong Kong.   We were all looking forward to spend the day at Disneyland Resort. Everyone was up early willing to skip breakfast and go straight to one of the happiest place on earth! Plus, all 5 kids received a shopping money from Lola Let.

HK Trip: Avenue of the Stars

Avenue of the stars, our last stop for our 1st day.   I didn’t particularly enjoy that night since it was raining, crowded street, and hungry grumpy babies with us. I took a deep breathe, paused for a while and started appreciating the beautiful Victoria Harbour. V didn’t understand the hullabaloo in taking photos with the street stars but he obliged as per our request. V with Tita Ninang Crist. We didn’t appreciate the light because it was raining. If we get the chance to go back, I would rather visit the place before sunset.

HK Trip: Tian Tan Buddha

*This is a part of a series of posts about our 2013 vacation in Hong Kong” Last year we enjoyed a 5 days vacation at Hong Kong with Daddy C’s side of the family. It was a first family vacation, all of Daddy C’s siblings were present along with kids and spouses which really made Mama Let (MIL) very happy. I have already blogged on the food we enjoyed along Nathan Road, where our hotel was located. Tita Crist (Daddy C’s younger sister) planned our HK itinerary, every detail of it – where to buy our Octopus card and what train or bus to take to reach our destination. Octopus card is a handy card you can use to get your way around Hong Kong. Almost all means of public transportation accepts this card. Once you reach airport don’t buy the card one of the vending machines, instead look for the special kiosk near the exit to the express train and buy your card, much more cheaper and easier for tourists you just need to show …

Food we ate along Nathan Road

One will never go hungry along Nathan Road, Hong Kong. Sharing with you some snaps of food we enjoyed during our 5 days stay. Gong Cha – We ordered Taro and Black Tea. C and I thinks that it needs a little more flavor and sweetness, but it might be just us asking the wrong mix? They speak very little English we had to give our order fast (long queue behind us).  Almost everyone walking with us had this particular bubble tea in hand. Food Corner – Located just a block away from our hotel this food stall was a busy one, they had siomai, fish balls, beef tripe, pork innards, octopus meat and a whole lot more.    V’s favorite food place along Nathan Road.  We had a long walk to reach Nathan Congee & Noddle place for breakfast.   I ordered Congee with Pork Liver  a complimentary sweet bread in every table  Hubby C ordered Beef Noodles Food on Stick – We passed by this place and it had a long queue which tempted us …
