A place called Eden

My sister and cousin just got home from their trip a few weeks ago. Yes right, they started the year with a vacation! (Geez, lol!) I wasn't interested with their travel stories actually, lol but their pictures are blog-worthy so fine, I'm gonna post them here as my "return of the come back post" hahaha!

They went to a place called Eden Nature Park, Davao Philippines. As per Wiki:

Eden Nature Park is a mountain resort and paradise located in Davao City. This place for rest and relaxation is 95% human-made, located 3000 ft above sea level of Davao City. This place of recreation is rich in exotic flowers, lush green forests, and the songs of birds.

Eden Nature Park was then a logged-over area covered by wild grass when it was discovered in 1971. The owner of the area realized that the place could be one major tourist attraction for it has an imposing view of Davao City and Davao Gulf. Thousands of pine tree seedlings were planted not long after terraces were carved out of the mountain slope. At present, 100 000 pine trees covering 80 hectares contribute to the beauty of the place.

But none can describe something as nice and accurate as pictures does, so here it goes, these are just some of the shots they took from a place called Eden.

First for 2016

Hi there, it's been a while. Had it not for the time-stamp, I wouldn't even remember how long has it been since my last post. So how are things going for La Kurdapya? Part of me wants to jot it down here just like the old times you know, be it a milestone in life or plain random moment, but part of me also has this "writer's block" as they say. To be honest I don't know how to go back to blogging again but then, I know I just got to let the words flow.

So anyway, let me share you some things that I have been up to lately. Work-wise, I've been working in a restaurant for quite some time already and although this is one tough job, I gotta say I'm enjoying it! One reason is because I am really a people person, I like the crowd, the busy-bee kinda set up. Am I weird? LOL! Personal life, well I am just grateful for everyday. The kids are growing up like weeds, they're both in their school years now. (I might share some pics later on, winks) Florida has been great to us overall, lots of places to feature here, lots of food adventures, lots of stories to tell. But then again, please allow me to take it one step at a time, I'm looking at my blogs like there's cobwebs in it, lol!

I really do hope to revive my blogs and be as active as before. I miss everything and everyone round the hood/blogsphere. So I guess I'd have to say this, see you!

Customized stuff

When the boss told me that we should get customized plastic bags and super cute fylers for the restaurant, I was all excited because I got this trade wholesale printing at gift card that can finally be put to used. I've been telling them about customized stuff because in a way, it will boost the the resto, a personal touch is always good for any business. Anyway, since tomorrow is my day off, might as well work on it. But that is after our family bonding of course! Happy weekend ya'all, spend it good and right! Winks!

Riverside Park & Trail


I make sure i'm spending my moments with my precious kids as much as possible during my off days at work. So, we taking them to the parks, beaches, malls and anywhere possible. Last week we headed up to one of the relaxing and beautiful scenery in our area, it was at the riverside park and trails. People are coming here to go fishing, some are taking a walk on the trails with their adorable pets, others swimming and boating, and mostly are just having fun and enjoying the views. Honestly, it is a pretty good size location to spend moments with friends and families. Along with kids play ground areas, grilling stations with picnic bars and cottages and so much more. We definitely had a fun ride day along with sight seeing! Wink!

In searching of

Since I'm in search for my kid's new past time and is considering music and musical instruments as my top choice, I have thought of giving my boy a little guitar. It is often good to start teaching and training children a certain hobby or skill as early as their in their toddler years. Children's minds have always been compared to a sponge, they are fast learners and easy to grasp almost everything. Ok, back to the guitar, children's toy guitars are a lot cheaper than the true professional guitars. Most toy guitars are made of plastic and does not require guitar strings, strings like the ernie ball 9s. Since I have mentioned it already, these guitar strings are truly reliable for professional guitars. As my boy ages, I might need to learn about these in time.

It's a date

I can't believe it's the first of March already! Awesome because we have so many plans ahead of us and one main thing i am excited about is we are officially taking kids to Legoland, FL. My boys who loves Legos would be tickled to the deepest level when he finds out the surprise for him and his lil sis. I got the e-tickets scheduled already so just waiting on that day to come! lol, Can't get enough of the excitement so sure we'll having so much fun at one of the famous theme parks in the state of Florida and of course across the country. Wink!

On digital recorder

Just a thought, it would be great having a music room or studio at home. The husband has been planning about it for the longest time but yours truly is kind of hesitant cause I really think an additional room means additional chores and maintenance. On a second note, I would like the kids learn to play instruments and somehow be musically inclined so a separate room to do the learning and practice is a good idea. Perhaps we'll start by figuring out what we need, like a good audio system and a couple of instruments, a guitar and flute maybe to start with. Then some sort of digital recorder as an addition because i want to record everything about my kids as they get older so memories wont never fades you know. Getting started and I hope this type of plans will push through.
