I can still remember when I was a kid and my father was still alive, we used to visit Rizal Park with the whole family, my mom, my brothers and my sister. That glimpse was very special to me… those were some of the few special memory left from my father. Oops… I’m about to cry now…cut it out!
We started viewing the Rizal Fountain there, Ishi was having fun looking at the Displayed Swans. She even wants to go inside pero hindi puwede, bawal! Siguro mas mag e- enjoy sila kung bukas ang fountain that time, kaso hindi eh! They also had fun with the doves in this park, there we’re plenty of them. Ethan and Ishi really wants to catch them all. We stopped near the fountain for a while, coz it’s been a long walk from UN station to get there at the park. But still the kids we’re running around while Dad and I we’re eating sandwhich (i have packed some, so if ever i got hungry i don’t have to buy anymore).
After then we wander around, trying to look for other things that we can see or do. There are lot of people everywhere, families like us, lovers, group of teens having their dance practice without any music, vendors, and even beggars. This park is relaxing, kung puwede nga lang akong mahiga na lang maghapon dito eh. We didn’t able to go to other amenities like their museum, japanese garden, kanlungan ng sining, etc.,my kids will not appreciate it anyway.
So we crossed the street from Rizal Monument to Lapu lapu Monument and then to Quirino Grand Stand, we stopped there again and ate “dirty ice cream” hmmm… i missed that! My kids also enjoyed viewing the kites up there so their dad bought one for them. Nagpalipad sila ng saranggola, ang galing galing na nga ni Ishi magpalipad e hehehe =)
Ishi and Ethan really enjoyed this day, and we’re so very happy for them. Despite of that, ISHI’s day will never be complete without “padulasan”, she still manage to remember that. She said “padulas na tayu mommy…”, hahaha i thought she forgot about it because of the kite. Well then since wala pa din kameng lusot, naghanap kame ng padulasan near us. And we found PLAYZONE sa labas ng Ocean Park. This playground is so cool, child-proof and complete facilities (though the other slide we’re broken). Ethan and Ishi love it anyway!
