So after so many months of staying indoors, we have finally brought the boys out to Avilon Zoo!
Also, it was Cal’s (our 2nd born) birthday, so it would be nice to bring them somewhere they will absolutely enjoy. Where else could that be? Of course, seeing the animals (they’ve only seen on Youtube) with their own two eyes.
The nearest to our place is Avilon Zoo in Rodriguez, Rizal which is just less than an hour drive from Quezon City. At first, I’ve thought of going to Zoobic in Subic, for the boys to have a close encounter with the tigers. But due to the Covid19 situation, a long drive is not a good idea at the moment. We are not sure if we could pass from one city to another because they might be implementing a strict safety protocol and would ask for some health certificate like a negative PCR test and etc.
I bought our tickets via Klook and each costs P600. We scheduled our visit on a weekday to ensure na kaunti lang ang pupunta. Since this will be our first family day out since the Covid started, our last trip pa was 2019. As a parent, nakakapraning talagang lumabas kasama ang kids. But we felt bad for them, they have stayed indoors for so many months and they also need the breathe some fresh air.
The day has finally come, we arrived at the zoo around 10 in the morning. We’ve seen few families coming in as well. We had the same thought, to visit during weekdays para kaunti ang tao LOL. But anyway, just for the kids we will do everything diba. Kaya doble ingat nalang tayo parents.
Upon arrival, I showed my ticket confirmation and they put a stamp on our wrists. It was quick. They also advised us to follow the NUMBER SIGNS 1 to 70.
Check out our vlog for the adventure!
We finished the entire zoo before 12 noon. It was actually quick since we didn’t stay in one place for a long time. And we’ve been avoiding people kaya minadali na din namin LOL. Afterwards, we just had our lunch in McDonalds – Drive Thru and went home. You can also bring your own food from restos/fast foods but with a corkage fee of P25 per head. Homecooked meals are free of charge.
The boys had so much fun and that’s the most important. ❤❤❤
