Star City 2016

STAR CITY at last! It is my first time to visit here. I know I know I just live in Cavite and it is super accessible via bus, uvexpress, jeep, minibus what have you and yet I can't seem to find the time to visit... but finally here I am as wide eyed as a 7 year old kid impatient to see and try everything! (ok maybe not everything the Star Flyer umm...next lifetime maybe) :D


So, I bought the ride all you can promo. 450 Php for all the rides. They also offer senior citizen discount, my mama got her RAYC ticket for 20% off the regular price :)

What I first noticed when I walked in is that (to my surprise) Star City is air conditioned pala! From the gate where we paid our tickets there is a tiangge we passed through before we took the escalator to get to where some of the indoor rides are. Mostly, these are the rides for kids, they have Road Race, Mini Pirate Ship, Frosty Train, Kiddie Bumper Car, Kiddie Wheel, Tea Cup, Ball Pool, Rodeo, Quack Quack and Little Tykes. On the top floor they have The Bumper Car Rave (bumper cars for adults), Bumper Boat, and Blizzard among others.

The second thing I noticed is that although the place looks old, I can see that the rides looks well maintained, the place is well lighted, everywhere you turn you can see a trash can, and you will not find it hard to look for a restroom. 5 stars for being clean!



I think the tickets were totally worth it. My 6 year old son got his fill of the Bump Car, the Train Ride in the magic forest and the Ball Pool. He wanted to ride the Bumper Boat but they only allow bigger kids around 10 year olds. 

Outside, you can see the rides for the older "kids at heart" The Star Frisbee is under maintenance when we were there but there are a lot of other rides you can try. You have the Star Flyer, Jungle Splash, Surf Dance. Rides in Star City Annex includes Tornado, Music Express.





My favorites are the Carousel and the Ferris Wheel. All in all I think we tried around 10 rides. RAYC ticket is totally worth it. I would like to try more rides (Viking and Surf Dance) if not for my son who dreads the thought me being swung that high up in the air. hehe sweet boy.


How to get to star city:

1. go to MOA, get a cab and for a fare of around 60-65 Php you can reach Star City.

2. board a bus going to Lawton get off on Hotel Jen (formerly Traders Hotel) and walk straight toward CCP. continue to walk til you see Star City.

Special comments:

-I am so used to some locations forbidding the bringing food into their facilities, I thought Star City was one of them, but I was wrong. We bought our own water and biscuits and we went in without any problem. 

-If you are going to Star City, get ready for a lot of walking standing and falling in line thus it might be a good idea to bring some snacks, water and comfy shoes.

Finally, we finished our lakwatsa with a mass (another surprise!) at the first floor near the Carousel.
It started 8pm to 9pm.

We enjoyed our time here especially my son, :) We will definitely come back.

Maria's Edge Resort Review

Hindi nanaman ako makatulog! :) But it's a good thing dahil sa puyat minsan nangagaling ang motivation ko at oras ko to write (less sleep, more blogs ha?). Naubos na ng mga instik na tinuturuan ko kanina ang baon kong English kaya eto mag tatagalog na lang ako. 👌

Last May 27, 2017 na tuloy na din sa wakas ang aming family outing sa Maria's Edge Resort sa Los Baños Laguna. Sa pagkakaalam ko ung pinsan ko pa na nasa Saudi ang naka "discover" ng resort na ito at nung nakita namin ang pictures nya sa fb (https://www.facebook.com/Marias-Edge-Resort-120277261424681/)  kahit mas mura pa yung unang private resort na kinausap namin, ito na yung binook namin. 
Location:
Maria's Edge Resort is located in Jamaica Hills Los Banos Laguna. Malapit sa UPLB at along the highway lang kaya kung gusto mo pumunta sobrang accessible kahit wala kang private vehicle. 
From Alabang sakay ka lang ng pa UP college na bus like St. Rose. Then, malalaman mo pag malapit ka na pag nakalampas ka na…

ACADSOC online job

I have been with ACADSOC as a part time home based teacher for exactly a month and a half today and here are my thoughts about it:


How do I feel about working here?
The best thing about working in Acadsoc is the flexibility. Every week I plot my desired schedule. On Mondays, for example, I advise my TM (Team Manager) that I want to take Mondays-Fridays 7pm-11pm and take Saturdays and Sundays off.  And if I want to earn extra cash, I take Weekend classes too. 
The next best thing that I like about Acadsoc is that it makes a great part time job. you can do it at home with minimal tool investments: you just need a laptop and a decent headset. I use Plantronics with a noise cancelling feature.  
Lastly, It is fairly easy, teaching especially free talk feels like you are being paid to listen. Just be prepared with your list of open ended questions, sitback, relax and watch out for any grammar or pronunciation errors. Recap and give a few tips.
How long do you teach each student?
I teach every st…

PayMaya Review: Please Read Before Using The App or Getting The Card

I feel nervous. This is definitely a very bad feeling to get especially when we are talking about money.
Sabihin ko later kung bakit, later but first, a bit of a back story:
So currently, I have this sideline of teaching online ESL. The company pays me through PayPal. Ngayon, hirap talaga ako na mag encash from PayPal to BPI. Ok sana sya kasi Php50 lang ang bayad yun lang ang tagal before ko makuha ang pera. The last time, it took 2 days before nag-reflect. Not sure why. Anyway.
So I saw this on YouTube:


OMG! It was magic! Money was transferred literally in SECONDS from PayPal to Paymaya! I don't have to wait. I hushed the small voice inside my head that said. "Php 250 ang transfer fee nyan hoy!" In my mind, I have an option in case I have an EMERGENCY and needed to get the cash ASAP.
Boy I was wrong!
Let me remind you first that my account is activated, I have the physical card, I had it activated and updated-- the works! and yet in my Day 1 of this PayPal to Paymaya experien…
