Summer Swimming with the family at Eastridge Athletic Park

13 April 2017

The best outings are those that happen unexpectedly.  As is the case today when we went to Eastridge Athletic Park for a day of swimming simply because my sister Sha and her family were already there!  She did mention that today might be the ideal time to meet up for the summer but we never actually finalized any plans.  The Eastridge Athletic Park is located within the Eastridge Golf Club development in Binangonan Rizal.  We were only able to get in because we were guests of  a member but we had to pay an entrance fee of P200/head (adult) and P100/head (child) which I think were reasonable enough rates.  We were able to bring in food and beverage (no corkage).

Our first trip to UP Town Center

07 April 2017

Another food craving for Rodic's Tapsilog yielded a surprise trip to UP Town Center. Whenever we pass by the area, Patrick always wishes to visit the new shopping destination but we've always run out of time.  Today, he finally fulfilled his wish and we spent about three hours just walking around the place and visiting the shops.

2017 MIAS: We attended the Mazda Press Conference on the new Mazda MX-5RF

02 April 2017

Occasionally, Patrick would leave us to cover a Press Conference while at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS).  We would find ourselves wandering around the Main Hall and the rest of the exhibits until he finished his work.  I think the last time we attended a Press Conference as a family was for the Manila Speed Show with Marlon Stockinger.  This time, we were allowed to attend Mazda's Luncheon Press Conference and what a blast we had! :)

2017 MIAS: 13th Annual Manila International Auto Show

02 April 2017

We've always gone to the annual Manila International Auto Shows.  This time, it's a bit special because it's Patrick's first MIAS event that he's covering under the Carmudi group.  Though the event itself goes on for four days (March 30 - April 02) at the World Trade Center, we only came with him on the last day.  But still, we all were excited at seeing all these brand new cars! :)

A Day in the Life - Favorites: Toyota 86, Lego and Charlie's Burgers

01 April 2017

When you have a car as awesome as the Toyota 86 delivered to your home (in our case, as a test drive vehicle) what will you do?  Well, of course! Take it for a spin!  I remember the last time we had a Toyota 86 for a week, Patrick really did take it for a spin - drifting it at a parking lot no less!  But, we're not doing that again. Instead, we just went for our favorites - Lego and great burgers at Charlie's Grind and Grill (Pasig).
