What I Wore Today: Babies Day Out

Friday, April 22, 2011

I love spending Holy Week in Manila. The empty streets, the unusually quiet surroundings, you just don't get that everyday in a busy, bustling metropolis. Holy Week in Manila is refreshing.

But since everything is pretty much closed during this time, there's not much to do so my brother suggested yesterday that we take the kids out biking before our "Visita Iglesia". We took them to the UP Campus. Love this place...
The streets are lined with Sunflowers, almost looks like John Hay in Manila...

Nikola just learned how to bike last week. We bought this bike for her 2 years ago but she never got around to actually using it until a few days ago. It's now too small for her so my mom bought her a bigger bike yesterday after their "little trek in the woods".
Comfort was key for me when I was dressing up yesterday. I had to anticipate the heat, running around and sitting on the ground. Hence the toms, and a super relaxed outfit. Pardon the sweat, besides the really loose, cotton clothing, I was still sweating buckets (yuck?) haha, it was really hot! :)

Nikola and her cousin Pablo on their little mountain:
The Baby Daddies:
Dennis with Nikola and my brother with Pablo
Running in "the woods"...
Since it's Earth Day, let's end this post with my favorite tree of the day. It was massive and I loved it! Yes, I am a tree-hugging hippie at heart :)

Hope you all have a nice weekend! :)

It's really hot talaga but I agree about loving the streets being empty which is seldom.

Woaahh... I never knew that the UP campus was that beautiful! :-)

And I love the tree you picked out to close the entry. There's something very.... wise (?) about that tree. =))

I love your outfit too! You look very boho and comfy. =)

My sister came home with one sunflower from that UP garden :) Yesterday, I was thinking of visiting that area as well. Told my family it would be a nice place to take pictures and hang out during the holy week :)
