Avilon, the Second Time Around

Abril 6, 2008

The first time I visited Avilon Zoo a couple of years back, I really loved the experience!

Welcome to Avilon Zoo

Yesterday (April 5), together with some friends from work, I spent a whole day at Avilon Zoo for the second time, and boy, I had a wonderful time! As they say, the second time is always sweeter, well in this case, much, much better than the first since a lot of improvement had been done by the administration of the zoological park (and still doing more until now, kudos to them).

Unlike my first visit, our small group didn’t hire a tour guide. Since I’ve been there before, maybe I’ll just be the tour guide (minus the explanation about the animals, of course! 😀 ). Avilon Zoo is a seven hectare park and it’s fun to get lost at such a big place when you’re with carefree, good-tempered people. Nobody complained about all the walking, the heat or to those who arrived a little late. All of us just had fun! And I’d like to share just how much fun we had.

What Yki Wants for Christmas

Disyembre 13, 2006

yki in the boxKids never fail to amaze and surprise me. Just this morning my nephew was wondering if we (everyone in the family) could find him a girlfriend. He’s barely 5 but it seems he’s ready for a relationship! He also wants to receive a sword, a real one, and a musketeer suit from Santa Claus.

According to his mom, Yki’s been watching Walt Disney’s version of The Three Musketeers (with Mickey, Donald and Goofy as the main characters) almost everyday. Suddenly, he forgot his ultimate hero Spiderman and set aside his favorite Spiderman costume. He wishes to change the movie’s title, too–from “The Three Musketeers” to “The Four Musketeers.”

This is what I have deduced from his Christmas wishes: The sword and suit will enable him to become part of the movie (ha-ha!), then there’d be four musketeers. And he wants a girlfriend so he’d be able to kiss the girl at the end of the movie like Mickey and Donald.

Nice thinking, Yki! Very imaginative. Genius ka talaga sa mga bagay na `to! Mana ka kay… 😉
