A Very Japanese Day


Last wednesday the kids and I accompanied sis to two Japanese groceries in Makati. She bought something for the cute bentos she’s making.


Our first stop was Hatchin Japanese Grocery located in 7602 Sacred Heart St. cor Metropolitan Ave., San Antonio Village Makati City. From what I hear, this is the best japanese Grocery in the metro because they carry lots of items. I was able to buy a box of that Golden Curry I wanna try.


After that, we went to Little Tokyo because sis wanted to check out if there’s something new at Choto Stop, another Japanese grocery store. I was looking forward for some Takoyaki Balls at Hana’s but they’re still closed at that time. I guess it’s still too early.

A day at Little Martians, Trinoma


Little Martians is a space themed play place for children. Aside from the slides and small rock climbing area, there’s also a small area where kids can play computer games and now, they also have a few tablets for older kids.


The other day, my niece Cyra came with us at the mall. It was her first time at Little Martians and she had an amazing time with ykaie.


Ykaie is already used to play places like these. She loves it because there’s lots of other kids to play with.


Among all the other play places, I prefer Little Martians because aside from the staffs who look after the children while they have fun, another thing that I like about them is that they have a fingerprint scanner. They scan the guardians/parents fingerprint when the child goes in. When you claim your child, you also have to have your fingerprints scanned. They make sure that the person claiming the child is also the person who left it.

On weekdays, rate is P160 per hour and P300 for unlimited playtime.
