Weekend on a Budget at Bluebay Walk

Weekends are so precious to us.  If there's one thing that I could trade my work of, that would be a forever weekend. Hahaha.  Monday pa lang gusto mo na ulit mag Friday. Relate?

Actually, ito talaga ang gusto kong sabihin.

Hahahaha! This meme is so funny! Pasok na pasok sa banga! Vacation mode lagi ang peg =)

Well, but seriously, having a work for the past 8 years is really a blessing.  'Yung iba nga diyan nagpapakamatay maghanap ng trabaho tapos ikaw petics lang.  God has given us all the talents and skills that we need in order to provide for ourselves and to our family.  We should not take it for granted, instead we should be grateful especially if you are working for a good cause.

BUT, as much as we love our job, hindi ibig sabihin nun na 24/7 ka ng magtatrabaho.  Rest is very important if we want to be productive in a long week of working.  Kailangan mo din mag recharge paminsan minsan.  And what better way to do that is to spend your time with your loved ones.  As for me, it's a breath of fresh air when I'm with my family.  My husband and three kids help me a lot to regenerate my energy when I'm feeling tired and weak.

Every weekends, especially during Sundays, we see to it that we spend time together strolling. Kapag sinabing strolling, one thing that first comes into our mind is spending money right? Kung pupunta ka sa mall hindi mo maiiwasan bumili ng anik anik or to buy toys that your kids pressured you to do so. Lol!  In addition, most of the playgrounds or play areas, may it be indoor or outdoor, usually has an entrance free. It will be very costly if you are always going out and that is a No No especially if you are just earning averagely. 

With that, I wanted to share with you guys my family's outdoor experience on a budget at Bluebay Walk.  It was a month ago when we went there.  Bluebay Walk is the new lifestyle center located at Metro Park, EDSA cor. Macapagal Boulevard, Pasay City. 

See map below.

The first thing that excites all of us most specially the kids, is the wide and huge play area. The kids and even adults can play and run all round, while you can.  And the best thing is that it's for everyone! There is no entrance fee.

There are also shops where you can rent a bike or a motor bike for kids.  As for us, we bring our kids' own bike! Yes, you can do that para less gastos.

The huge spread of green grass is also conducive for those who have babies.  You can stroll them or even train them on how to simply crawl, stand, or walk.  The area is big enough to hold a lot of people but since it is just new, the place is less crowded pa.

Note:  The construction that you see at our back is far from the open area.  The spot that we are sitting is very safe from debris =)
The place also has a lot of restaurants.  Some of these are:

  • Manila's Best Coffee
  • Velvet Friends Cat Cafe Company
  • Crisostomo
  • Papa John's Pizza
  • The Food Club
  • Burger King

  • Angel N Kiss Bakery
  • Mitsuyado Sei-Men
  • J.Co Donuts and Coffee
  • The Ostrich Farm
  • Hot Star Large Fried Chicken
  • Conti's Bakeshop and Restauant

Whew! That was long!  Here are the shopping stores naman in case hindi talaga mapigilan hehe.

You can also bring your food but please be sure to also bring your own plastic garbage bag. Please lang.  The grass area is so clean and you can never see any candy wrapper or plastic snacks littering there.  We didn't bring any food kasi hindi pa namin alam na pwede but next time we will definitely bring sandwiches and drinks.

Yani is still negotiating with her Daddy hehe

I am so loooving this moment.  This little boy always put smiles in our hearts.

Bluebay Walk is the newest place for family where you can all bond, unwind, chill, eat, do outdoor shopping, and listen to a relaxing music.  I am not sure but I think there are live bands that performs every night.

Bluebay Walk is open from 9:00 am - 10:00 pm everyday.
Happy Weekend!
