Ninoy Aquino Park and Wildlife 2023

Yesterday, we visited the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center. We had originally planned to visit the La Mesa Eco Park, but it was already closed. The guard said that the park is open from 6 AM to 3 PM on weekends, so we decided to go to NAPWC instead. The park entrance fee is still the same as it was in 2019 (our last visit before the pandemic). PHP 30 for adults and PHP 15 for children, free for children 7 years old and below and senior citizen. For foreign visitors the entrance fee is PHP 100.

We noticed that the aquariums are no longer there, unlike before. Perhaps they have been moved to another area. The rest of the park is still the same. It is well-maintained. However, there are no food concessionaires inside, so you have to bring your own bottled water and food, or buy them outside

We strolled around the park, enjoying the tranquil scenery. We enjoyed watching the birds while T enjoyed picking up sticks and stones. Some families brought tents and picnic mats. If you do the same, please make sure to clean up the area and dispose of your trash properly in the trash cans.

Papa John's Pizza Makers Camp 2023

My son joined a pizza making camp by Papa John's. I saw the ad on Facebook inviting kids to join the workshop for only PHP 399, which included loot bags, aprons, pizza, and a drink.

We chose the Visayas Avenue branch since it was near our area. It was his first time to join a pizza making camp. The camp was held on May 24, 2023, starting at 10:30 AM. I thought there would be only a few participants, but in total, there were 9 kids who joined.

At first, my son wanted to go home, but as the camp started, he started to listen and enjoy the process of making pizza. He even enjoyed chatting with the other kids. There was already a pre-made dough and toppings, and the kids also entered the kitchen area where they were guided to put the pizza in the oven. Overall, he enjoyed the camp and we will definitely join another one soon.
