That's something I was wearing to the BU5, Bloggers United 5 at SMX Convention Center last June 1. Pink Fashion dress, SM Parisian satchel bag, Primadonna shoes and Blazer from Wholesale-dress.net. I am so into black and white lately. I love the fact that it's a huge trend for Spring 2013, and it was on all the major runways. It always looks timeless. Well, I'll blog about the BU5 event on my next post!
Fathers Day without my Father just doesn't seem right. Card shops with adverts in their windows, people rushing around buying presents, retailers telling us to get our Fathers Day presents here! Well I can't anymore. So instead, I just turn away and feel that sad hollow within me as my eyes well up yet again and I head off home. There's no one like My Dad, and he's not here to cuddle any more and tell me that I'm his best girl. He's not here to hold my hand and tell me it'll be all right. He's not here to celebrate Fathers Day with me, because he died. :'(
After our ultimate fun at Tree Top Adventure, we wanted to experience a wild night adventure in Zoobic Night Safari!, so we headed next to the one and only Tiger Safari in the Philippines, the Zoobic Safari.
It is also one of the Subic Bay's nature theme parks that offer visitors a different kind of adventure. The theme park main feature is its Tiger Safari where Tigers freely roam an enclosed area and gave you a close encounter experience with the tigers and its babies.
Here is the entrance area where you can buy foods, plants and pets.
Bathroom and toilets were clean, unique and zoo-themed which was really fascinating.
First part of our park tour is through the Zoobic Park where we are introduced to different farm animals likes rodents, birds, and other animals that are endemic to the Philippines.
After the tour to the Zoobic Park, we led to the park’s Serpentarium which is located in an old bunker. Inside, different snake species are found including pythons which are commonly found in the country and other lizards.
Our tram train that leads us to other parts of the park.
The day tour would enable the visitor to see the animals clearer and to take better pictures but he perks of the night tour were the Night Safari Show, and that's what we wanted. The first one was the glow in the dark dancers, animal show with parade of animals then the fire poi dance while the next one was a tribal fire breathing dance. They were both highly entertaining.
Quickly after that, the tram train brought us to the Tiger Safari - the most exciting part! The tiger that we encountered, was already full from a day of eating chicken meat. The feeder took some moments teasing the tiger before the bloated tiger stood up and took a bite of those raw chicken meat.
The last stop of our tram train is at the Animal Muzoolum which is a small museum of different fossils and is also housed within an old bunker. From here, we continued the tour by walking to the Aeta’s Trail and we are guided by greyhound dog where we are invited to watch a short show performed by the Aetas. They perform different traditional dances like their dance for war and the monkey dance.
At the end of the trail, we enter the Croco Loco area which is dedicated to the park’s crocodiles. We walked through a metal path on top of a large den of crocodiles.
If you want to experience a thrilling and rewarding close encounter with nature's best to offer, then visit Zoobic Safari. It will give you the opportunity to experience first hand having tigers surrounding and jumping on the vehicle you're in.
After my #ootd shoot at Global City last April 6 (sorry, back log post), we went off for some extreme adventure at Subic. I've already been to Subic's "Ocean Adventure" where you can swim with dolphins and sea turtles and you can watch sea lion show, see aquariums and the Dolphin Friend Show. This summer, it's Tree Top Adventure and Zoobic Safari for us. Yey!
Ahh... it's more fun in Subic.
Subic offers the best adventure spots and also the best variety of tourism and recreational attractions, luxurious hotels, beaches and eco-tourism.
One of the special and enjoyable sightseeing spots in Subic Bay Freeport Zone that tourists and travelers should see is Tree Top Adventure. This is a manmade park situated in a deeply-forested jungle-area. This is nature’s sanctuary, enveloped in the realm of overgrown trees and jungle-foliage of various types.
Breathtaking, is a word best used to describe the experience of riding canopies, walking cable bridges, and cable-sliding from one treetop to another while marveling at the vast array of surrounding flora, fauna and animal species.
We have to wear a safety harness before we start to our Silver Surfer ride.
Silver Surfer rocked us back and forth while standing up as we’re securely glided from 60 feet high above. It's an ultimate fun yet scary experience of surfing in the air.
Lol, I was too scared to move or even to look at the camera. I just hold my breath and shut my eyes.
My sister-in-law, Grace (who's very generous for treated us here! :)) and his hubby tried the Superman Ride.
The Superman Ride is basically just like a motorized zipline, but you will be securely suspended face-down, stretching your arms while holding on to the bars, and extending your feet up to the next bar. You will then soar like Superman.

As we headed to Zoobic Safari, we just dropped by to an open field and took some photos. Since it’s noon time, we didn’t stay long because the sun is very hot. So, 'till here, I'll blog about Zoobic Safari on my next post! :)
It's always the most basic outfit that feels the most polished and put together. There's nothing particularly special about this look - denim short, cropped top, cap and sneakers.
I put this look together in our family escapade (will blog it on my next post) one Saturday morning slump after trying on dozens of different outfit.
I was surprised at how much I ended up liking such a simple outfit. Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics and realize that they always, without a doubt, look great and comfortable.
By the way, I really don't know how to skateboard, I just borrowed this from the boy beside us. Tee-hee!
