What better way to cool down during a hot scorching summer afternoon than to hit the nearest park, well in our case, The Ninoy Aquino Parks + Wildlife Center. It was a bit out-of-the-way I know, but it was one of those random days when we’ve got nothing planned + went on where our wanderlusts lead us, + this particular tourist attraction is one of the few places Jared’s dad + I used to frequented + I kind of  missed it!  Oh well, it turned out to be one afternoon the little man enjoyed!

We arrived there a little before 3pm, I guess, + although the sun is up as usual, the shades provided by the lush greenery is enough for us to wander around without getting a sunburn. The little man went on to explore the vast park, running here + there. He was drenched in sweat in a matter of minutes but he simply won’t stop. 🙂

Jared saw bamboo trees for the first time + was in awe of those big plants, not to mention the interesting sounds they make. He was also in awe of the pond in the middle of the park + was actually attempting to take a dip, glad mum is a step quicker than he was! When he saw stray cats around, he quickly made to run after them, even attempting to follow a black one who ran for cover underneath one of the huts. 😉

It was unfortunate that the mini zoo was already closed when we arrived but we managed to view some of the birds housed in a couple of aviaries + the little man was in peals of giggles at the sight of these beautiful creatures.

The Ninoy Aquino Parks + Wildlife Center is perfect for a family picnic what with a number of picnic huts + picnic tables scattered around, I made a mental note to bring some food the next time we visit. For the grandeur of nature around it that makes for a wonderful photo shoot site, the park has also been a hit to photographers. We actually encountered a number of them in this particular visit, including a group of anime teenagers who were busy taking their photos in their funky costumes + wild-colored hair!

I only wish we’d came a little earlier so we’d have more time to roam around + that I’d been able to pocket the camera onto my eco-bag, too, we could’ve  had more photos of the beautiful spots there. Oh well, hopefully we can go + visit again some time soon!
