Long Road Trip with Children: From South to North Luzon

Photo taken at Ilocos Sur
 I never thought that this trip is really going to happen.  Few moths ago, Pakner4lyf told me that he had an invitation to speak at a church in Mangaldan, Pangasinan.  He says that wants us (me and the children) to be with him.  I don't take his word seriously for some reasons.  It's hard to travel with the children that's one major concern. I have seen how serious my husband was about this trip.  He informed my parents of the planned out of town travel and asked if they could join us.  On our thought they are not interested but on the scheduled date of departure I've seen that they were as excited as we are.  It is great that they can come so we have someone to share with the expenses.  Our original plan was to use my parent's SUV (Sportivo) being it bigger and more spacious compared with our car (Toyota Vios).  For some unexpected incidents, one of the SUV's tires was flat and badly damaged, there we learned that the tires are no longer fitted for far travels therefore it needs to have new set of tires.  We don't have enough time to buy new tires and have it changed so we ended up with a decision to leave using our car.

We left Batangas City at noon time November 16, 2013.  We stopped at Petron in Lipa Star Tollway and gas up there at the same time we bought the limited Chevrolet Toy Car.  We would always grab the chance to have full tank outside Batangas City because gas is cheaper outside Batangas City.  On our way to South Super Highway, mom and I noticed Eu-La starts to get pale and complains of her stomach.  So we immediately find a place to have another stop at the nearest gas station for a break and have our late lunch this made Eu-La feel a lot better.  We asked Eu-La to sleep whenever she feels dizzy and I am glad she is cooperative.  Our little girl is asleep most of time during our road travel.

We Feel Wacky Today

It's a wacky day today!

I learned last night of 7-Eleven's promo #BYOCupDay. My children would love to ask us for a visit to 7-Eleven. It is because they would love to have the Slurpee, Ice Cream, Siopao and Hotdog Sandwich in there. There's nothing wrong if we would join the contest and be wacky for a day!

What is #BYOCupDay?

7-Eleven Philippines invites everyone to join their Bring Your Own Cup and fill it up with Slurpee for only P29.00. This promo happens November 7, 2013. Entrants who will bring the most wackiest/craziest cup will get a chance to win P5,000.00.

One important criteria is that the cup you are to bring should fit the "MaCUPangyarihang Bilog!"

Cups should fit inside this circle to qualify - "MaCUPangyarihang Bilog!"
