Learning Through Play | Doc BugStuffins

Inspired by the Disney Junior Doc Mcstuffins cartoon, Bug’s favourite toy right now is her doctor playset.  It all started when was getting bored of her dolls and ignored them so one day while we’re having lunch I told her that her babies are getting sick because she’s ignoring them.  Here’s what happen next…

We designed a simple mini hospital clinic in her bedroom and then I taught her how to use each doctor tools properly.  Besides her dolls, I was also a patient for 3 nights last week hahaha.  The other video below is about Bug being a veterinarian.   She did a thorough check up on our 3 dogs : Jersey, Secret and Sherlock.  They are the most behaved dogs we have ( out of 10 dogs) so she chose them.

One day she’ll be a great doctor !

Till then, we better get back to our patients…….

Vampire Baby Alive Doll

I’ve been doing a lot of Baby Alive Doll Videos lately because it gets the most views in my youtube channel.   Bug who used to be scared of these kinds of dolls got used to it and now loved them so much.  This particular video is our favourite.  We turned the doll into a baby Vampire from the cartoon called “Monster High.”  Here she was fed witches brew, brushed her fangs, changed her diapers and more.

Took me days to design her bedroom because I had to watch a few Monster High episodes.  Love the art works in that movie so much.  The only original Monster High toy that I bought in creating this video is the black coffin shaped locker, the rest were homemade including the lamp shade and her clothes etc.   Hope you’ll enjoy watching this.

Barbie Makeover by a 4 Year Old

She’s at it again.  Putting on make up but this time she’s into the barbie look.  I can’t even put on a fake eyelash on myself but here she is at only 4 years old and already quite good at putting on fake eyelashes.

We bought the Barbie makeup from Toys R Us and the others are just department store brands.  The Barbie eyeshadows are a little too light for me but then again it’s a kids brand and the best part is you can easily wash them off with just water so its great for pretend play.

Thanks for stopping by!

Easter Summer Event 2016

Spent our Easter Sunday in our Village again.  And I have to say it was not as beautiful and interesting as last years Alice in Wonderland theme.  We did not enjoy it  because Bug didn’t like the prizes and we were expecting  at least equally great performance like last years.

At least Bug got some exercise looking for eggs.

Bohol Island Trip / Vacation 2016 (Part 2)

PART 1 : LINK

Everyday at 9:00 am we leave Henann Resort to go to different places in Bohol. Since most of us were “young” and active we preferred places where we can get some physical activity as opposed to just sightseeing.

So if you’re like us, here are my recommended places worth visiting

  1. Hinagdanan Cave — 30 minutes ride
  2. Mag Aso Falls — 1 hour ride
  3. Alona Beach Snorkeling — 20 minutes by boat
  4. SUP Tours – Stand-up paddleboarding  by Loboc River surrounded by mountains and palm trees. — 1 hour ride

Note: In my experience its better to plan the trip on your own then just schedule your ride with the Henann Resort people than ask them for recommended places.  Because they usually recommend the places that are only great for sightseeing like the Chocolate Hills or the Tarsier Conservation Area.  If you’re physically active like us you will get bored.

Our ride going to different places in Bohol.

Snorkeling at Alona Beach, Bohol, Philippines

Too bad we don’t have  a good waterproof camera.  If you’ve read the part 1, you’ll know my sister’s phone died during the trip.  The view of the corals and fishes underwater was breathtaking.  We even saw mommy turtle swimming with her baby!

snorkelling

Bringing a net was my idea and so worth it.  Even the kids enjoyed trying to catch the fishes.

We caught Nemo !

Swimming in the deep dark cave.  Wonderful Experience!

Bug was scared to be in that cave.

 

Bohol Bee Farm Restaurant

We ate lunch here right after Hinagdanan Cave which is only a few minutes away.  Great place to eat, swim and sunbathe.  Everything here is organic.

Thanx for reading! Happy Summer!

Beach Mermaids Alona Beach, Bohol Philippines (Part 1 )

Happy Summer Guys! Its 40°C right here, what better time to go to the beach right? I’m not even sure if I’m being sarcastic.  I hate sunburn!

HenannResort

Henann Resort behind us.  Alona white sand beach in front.  How convenient!

My in-laws and twin sister planned the whole trip and I’m so grateful for it because it turned out to be the best beach experience I’ve had.  We stayed at Henann Resort which  sits at Panglao, Bohol and along the pristine shores of Alona Beach ! One of the best 5-star Resort in Bohol (with great Wi-Fi connection! ) and one of the best fine-white-sand beaches in the Philippines!

Our whole 4 days trip wasn’t just spent swimming in Alona beach, we also went snorkeling, swam at Hinagdanan Cave and swam and climbed the Mag Aso falls.  We were wet 12 hours a day with #saltyhair and #sandyfeet !  And I’ve accomplished two of my life goals– be a beach mermaid and swim in a waterfall.  Check out the video.

Breakfast and dinner buffet at Henann Resort –  The food was fantastic especially their tempura, roasted duck and BBQs.  Kids 4 years and below eat free of charge! Woopee!

Sunken bars! Too bad they don’t serve just juice.  Bug really wanted “juice”

Screen Shot 2016-03-26 at 5.32.16 AM

Hinagdanan Cave – The water looks creepy but I swear it’s not haunted.   Bug got too scared to swim, she cried and screamed the whole time “MOMMY GET UP!”

Right above is the only decent photo I have in the Hinagdanan Cave because we used my sister’s iphone6 with waterproof case to take photo the whole time.  And you know what sucks? it’s NOT WATERPROOF!  So I’m saying this out loud DO NOT BUY APPLE’S LIFEPROOF WATERPROOF CASE BECAUSE ITS FAKE. And it cost Php5000 / US$108.

sister-in-law, Bug, and father-in-law at Mag Aso Falls

We were all shocked that Bug wanted to climb the waterfall because it’s so slippery and quite dangerous– well we carried her more than she climbed but at least she tried.  What’s more shocking is my father-in-law who’s probably the only senior citizen ever climbed the Mag Aso falls!  His secrets are 1. Fish diet and 2. Play basketball regularly.

My sisters comatose iphone6.  I’ll bring it for repair today.  Don’t DIE!

I don’t have any photos of the snorkeling trip because of the same reason I have in the cave.  But we did get lots of shells and starfish!– till my next post.
