Lucky Me! Noodle Factory Field Trip 2019


Last November, our son's school had their annual educational field trip. Of course, daddy A and I went with him. Minsan lang naman ito sa isang tao so we really reserve a day for this.


It was a very early trip kasi our destination was south, in Laguna and Tagaytay.


Our first destination was Lucky Me! Noodle Factory

We were welcomed and greeted by no less than Lucky M.

Kids were so happy seeing Lucky M for the first time. Giant noodles ba naman e.

Before going to the production area, the tour guide presented a video clip about Lucky Me.

The kids were engrossed and very interested.


After that we headed to the noodle production area. Taking photos are not allowed in that area so no photos there. To just give an idea, we were shown how our favorite Lucky Me! pancit canton and noodles are made or produce. From mixing of ingredients to make the noodles, to cutting, to quick frying, and to packaging. Like any other food companies, their quality control is tight.

Before leaving, the tour guide taught the kid how to make noodles by just using their imagination. And guess who volunteered to help in the demo?

Yes, our little boy raised his hands and volunteered without any hesitation. Here's the whole video of that fan noodle making.


First destination palang ng field trip ha and the kids had so mcuh fan na. We had 4 more destinations to go. So stay tune for the next destination: Tagaytay Picnic Grove.

The CLSU Christmas Lights 2019


Have you read my Christmas Eve 2019 post? Sobrang late na I know but still these are all worth to share.

On Christmas day, we prepared food for lunch.




Aside from Daddy A's relatives, I am expecting my siblings to arrive din. We had lunch and long kwentuhan.


Before evening naman we decided to go to CLSU main gate to see its Christmas lights display. Since it's just a few steps away from Daddy A's house, we decided to just walk.


So here are the photos taken from CLSU main gate Christmas lights display.



This reminds me of my Singapore trip, 3 years ago na yata na hindi ko na naipost. Haha!


Who would have know I'll end up marrying my best friend?



And we will have this cuddly little boy.


Our little boy is unstoppable. He asked for more photos in front of CLSU Christmas Lights display.


CLSU,  Christmas Lights display


Like father, like son.



Let's come inside CLSU na.

This is the CLSU Leaders Tree. It is one the oldest trees in the university. It is once a towering Acacia tree that had provided a lofty shed for those who passed by CLSU main gate. However, because it gets older, it had started to wither and grow weak. To preserve its significance and prevent the harm it might cause as the tree started to wane that some of its branches give way when it rained, it was decided that the tree be turned into a CLSU’s Golden Anniversary Marker on which were etched the faces of the University Presidents since the university’s humble beginnings up to the present and commemorate their contributions to the development and growth of CLSU.

I remember when we were still studying here, we will go in front of Admi (as we called it) and sit on the grass. While snacking on fishball, kwek-kwek, chips paired with Coke, kwentuhan lang kami hanggang sa dumilim na. Yun na yung sign na uwian na, hehe. Those simple life I missed, wala pa kasi cellphone noon kaya we can bond until maubusan na ng kwento.




Kakaaliw itong bahay kubo.


Nakita nyo yung pugad sa taas? Naalala ko tuloy si Tatay ko na may mga alagang native na manok na lagi naming kinukuhaan ng itlog pang umagahan. Simple life again that I missed so much.


Teka, may nagca-caroling pala.


At kasama pa si Bantay (the dog).


That's it pancit! Sabi syo it is worth sharing kahit medyo late na. Next naman is our New Year's Eve celebration ha. Balik kayo!

Our Christmas Eve 2019


I know it's Valentine's Day na in a few days. Tapos Christmas pa ipopost ko. But I'll post it anayway, haha!

We have celebrated Christmas at our hometown, in my in-laws' home. That's our yearly tradition, then we celebrated New Year in our home naman.

On Christmas eve, after hearing a mass, we went to my sister-in-law's home to have our Noche Buena.


2019 was a very painful year for me. Hindi lang halata. But everytime I see how happy my son is whenever we are together, those pain is definitely worth it.


There are so many things public won't see and should be kept within our selves and our family. Tama na yung puro joy lang i-share ko ha? I know you will understand.

Kaya naman, I'll share with your our happiness instead. Here's our little boy who was so happy receiving his Christmas gifts.


That smile is so priceless. Our gifts are not expensive but we make sure he will love it. He received his favorite book "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", fast charging cellphone connector and bey blade. 


I don't want to buy him bey blade kasi feeling ko delikado to play. But it's not naman pala unless you put metal accessories or disk. So ayun we just remind him to play with it safely.

You know, for our kids, price of gifts don't matter. They will appreciate whatever we give to them. So isang tip ko lang, know what are their favorite toys, books, clothes etc. You can ask them also what they want to receive. You can buy three things they like for example and it doesn't need to be expensive ha. Marami ng mura now but make sure it's safe and of good quality. Then wrap them all. For sure your kids will love opening a big bag full of gifts they love.

While waiting for the Noche Buena, Daddy had wine while we had sweets, haha.


Here's what we had for Noche Buena. Simple but so delicious if you eat with your family.


And here's us taking photo before we eat, haha. Please don't mind our little boy making faces, hehe.


So that's it. Sunod naman yun ibang kwento ha. Please stay tune!
