January will be a very festive month in our city as we commemorate the formation of the Philippine’s First Republic on the 23rd. In line with this momentous occasion, the local city Government, led by our very dynamic City Mayor, lined-up a series of activities for everyone to partake in.

There will be a Short Film Festival to be held at local Cinemas joined in by local amateur film makers, a bike festival, a tricycle fest, several talent shows and contests joined in by musically-gifted Malolenos, as well as an assortment of other activities. The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform during the festival. One of the high, lights of the festivities is the reenactment of the activities that took place during the declaration of the very first Philippine Republic, when people from different parts of Luzon will come to Malolos to play brass band music on the streets in front of the Barasoain Church. We were able to watch the brass band competition about 2 years ago, where my brother’s band from Malolos won grand prize. The contest was judged by no less than Olivier Ochanine, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra {PPO}. You may read about our experience here.

The activities will be held in different venues in our city, including the Barasoain Church Plaza, the Malolos Sports and Convention Center, among others.

If you are from Malolos or residing anywhere near, this month is the most ideal time to visit our little charming city and participate in the many fun, educational, and relevant activities our city lined up to commemorate the First Philippine Republic.

If traveling to Malolos for the first time, proceed to NLEX and take Tabang Exit. The city proper is about 15-20 minutes away from the Exit. Explore your way around by asking a local directions or proceed to the local Tourism Office. When commuting, you can ride one of those UV Express vans in Trinoma. Its terminal is at Malolos Crossing, where everything else is just a Karatig ride away.

See you in Malolos City!

List Of 2015 Philippine Holidays

Happy New Year!

Time again to start saving up for those quick getaways or holidays with the family and with that said, here is the list of 2015 Philippine Holidays to help you plot those vacations and organize your travel time more efficiently.

This year, let us all plan to go somewhere we’ve never been before and actually do it. These travels need not be grand and extravagant, in fact, if you can travel with less money spent, all the better! I am hoping we could travel more this year as we have not done so much traveling last year, although we did manage to visit the Manila Zoo and see Mali {I’ve been wanting to bring the little man there since time immemorial, see!}, had a playdate with mum friends and their kiddos at the Mind Museum, go to a Bulacan resort we’ve never been before and had a wonderful beach getaway, too.

This year, I do hope we can go to the beach and spend a night or two there, go to a local UNESCO Heritage Site, maybe or go for an outdoor adventure. Generally, I just plan to spend more time outdoors with the little man! And yes, a trip to the local park or parts of your city you have never been before is counted as travelling. So go make this year your best travel adventure yet!

What are your travel plans for the year 2015?
