Many parents are asking me, how come a “frugal”, “practical” ,“tipid mommy” like me loves traveling. As a mom and family finance advocate, I believe that investment is not just about paper assets alone – hindi lang stock market, mutual funds … Continue reading
Being a 90’s kid, I can still recall when my parents told me about the newest theme-park in the country. Pero siguro mga after 3 years pa kami nakapunta, and isa yun sa memorable childhood experience ko.
Applying for a passport for your baby or kid? Travelling international? or you just need an ID for your child? Mommies, dahil marami ang nagtatanong about sa experience namin sa pagkuha ng passport ni Zee. I want to share with … Continue reading
Everyone knows how important it is to take a break every once in a while. If we don’t de-stress and allow our minds and bodies to recover, many facets of our lives would suffer: the quality of our work output, … Continue reading
This year, we are aiming to spend more quality time together and to stick on our family’s budget. We want to be more intentional in using our time and our resources this year.
And yes mommies, we’re thinking of more creative ways to lessen our family’s spending since we are currently living on a single income stream, but we don’t want to sacrifice family quality time.
“Oh that’s a starfish mimi..” says my son on our beach get-away.
“Tap.. tap.. tap.. We’re going to fly didi!” his words on his first airplane ride.
Seeing how our son enjoyed every second of our trips made our hearts full as parents.
Since my husband and I became parents, we’ve decided to invest on “experience” rather than on “material gifts” to our son.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly and near Manila White Sand Beach, Masasa Beach located at Tingloy, Batangas is a great place for you.
We are so blessed to explore Masasa Beach bago pa sya maging crowded. We spent two days of Simple Living in Barangay Tingloy.
Sobrang Raw and Authentic Beauty of Nature, Masasa Beach is indeed one of the hidden gems of Batangas.
Our family loves to travel and explore places together, some parents are asking us if hindi ba mahirap mag-travel with kids? Our answer, yes, it’s challenging and fun at the same time!
Expect a lot of “changes in your plan” when traveling with kids, there are also many commercial breaks like “Mimi, wiwi ako!…” “Mimi, I’m hungry!..” “Mimi… Mimi…”, haha!
But traveling with our child makes every travel, extra fun, loaded with laughters, with our main travel goal “to fill his core memories” with joyful experiences with us, letting him see the world in his own eyes and be amazed of the Amazing Creator we have. Every travel experience, kahit mahirap minsan, are all worth it!
Traveling as family is one of our family activities each year.
It is a “must” in our family, its like a yearly tradition during our wedding anniversary and our child’s birthday.
But why do we love to travel? Why do we have to cut down on other expenses so we can save for our yearly trip?
Because we believe it is beneficial for our family.
Here are some benefits of family travel:
1. Making Memories
We believe that we are to celebrate life, in simple and exciting ways, in our family, traveling is our way to celebrate occasions, We believe that our son is in his stage of building his “core memories” we wanted to fill it with love, laughter, experiences and memories of our travel..
Few days ago we celebrated our 3 years of team work in parenthood in a Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas (It has been our family tradition to visit different beaches whenever we have special occasions in our small family) It is our way to switch off and spend alone time with our family and with God.
Being known as a practical and “budget-conscious” person, our friends asked us on how to have a budget-friendly family travel.
Most of us think that only rich people can travel, but the truth is.. everyone can, as long as you put it in your priority list.
Like for example,instead of spending for your favorite frappucino, why not save it for a family travel fund? We just need discipline, patience, proper planning, commitment to our travel goals and saving habits.
