Yesterday’s my last day in school. I finally finished Nursery.
I am truly grateful to the people who made my nursery year a fruitful one, so I gave these small gifts to my teacher, assistant teachers, and school bus driver.
No more classes, no more books, no more teachers…
it’s vacation time!
Today is my Daddy’s birthday!
Dad didn’t want any big celebrations.
I am interrupting the “vacation-reminiscing” series of posts with this very special announcement – I am THIRD PLACE for BEST POETRY RECITATION in our school.
Mom and I decided to wrap the certificate, so we could give it as a birthday present to Dad, who’s celebrating his birthday on the 28th. So when dad reached home from work, I handed over my gift to him.

Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing the # 7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan. He was a star in the Disney Pixar movie, Cars 2.
We have been searching all the toy shops in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for Shu Todoroki, but we couldn’t find him.
One day, we were invited to a birthday party held in a home, and the celebrant’s brother showed me his toys that included Shu Todoroki. He was playing it with a revolving track so we concluded that we have to buy that track, to get Shu.
And so my parents bought this play set called “Tokyo Spin Out” thinking that the box would include Shu. But to our dismay, we found Lightning McQueen instead of Shu Todoroki inside the box.
We went to toy shops searching for a box that would include Shu Todoroki, but all we found were boxes that had Lightning McQueen inside.
Our search continued in the Philippines, as we moved from one mall to the other. The search ended up finding one in Toys’R'Us shop in Trinoma Quezon City. My parents checked out the store with my Ninang Chiqui, who they met up earlier for lunch. Ninang Chiqui was also on a vacation in the Philippines. She works as a nurse in Australia.
But there was a slight problem. My parents and Ninang Chiqui saw Shu Todoroki inside a box-like machine.
According to the staff, they need to insert tokens in a slot under the box, to be able to receive a ball that would have a toy inside. But that would not guarantee that they will get Shu, because there were many other type of toys inside the ball. And they couldn’t choose a specific toy, because the box is locked, and they were supposed to like “gamble”, as part of the game.
The slot machine needed 3 tokens to be able to get ONE ball. So my parents bought 3 tokens – one bought by Ninang Chiqui, and the two by Mom and Dad.
Each of the 3 tokens was inserted by a different person – for luck. A ball rolled down after the 3rd token, and they got excited to open it. To their surprise, they got Shu Todoroki on their first ball!
And so… my parents brought home this…
And Ninang Chiqui also bought me this nice blue truck, also part of the movie CARS.
And so you think the search is over? Nope. I still have to find Lewis Hamilton, Max Schnell, Rip Clutchgoneski and Miguel Camino to complete my race track.
If you find any of these 4 cars in toy shops near your area, could you leave me a message? Thank you!

My parents, my cousins and I went to Walter Mart in Plaridel Bulacan to watch “Avengers” the movie. We had a jeepney ride.
But then, when the movie started, I couldn’t tolerate the loud sound effects of the movie, so I asked Dad if we could just come out of the moviehouse.
And so Dad and I went out, and we ended up at the arcade!
There are lots of stuff to play with!
I had fun riding these…
And best of all, I had a cup of delicious ice cream!
When my cousins finished watching the movie, they told me the movie was nice and I missed a lot!
Hmmm… it’s okay because I still had a great time. I can watch the movie later when I’m older enough to tolerate the ear-banging noise of digital sounds.

Jollibee is my favorite fastfood chain in the Philippines. I love their spaghetti. Last year, I held my 3rd birthday party there.
