Affordable Family Bonding

It is not all the time you have the budget to splurge when it comes to bonding with your family, there are times that you really want to go out but just thinking about the amount you would be spending make you just want to stay at home, but our kids will not understand that at times, all they know is that they want to enjoy their day outside of the four corners of your house. 

All options listed below are family bonding/food trips you may enjoy in less that 500php, nowadays 500php is just for 2 persons that you may be able to eat decently and with generous amount of servings.  However, we are family with 5 members, plus we have our yaya so total of the real world, you must have at least 1000-1500 php in order all of us can dine in, and be at least satisfied with what we get for the value of our money.

My husband and I have tried all kinds of family bonding activities that I know of, I want to share this to all parents who are practical and still want to enjoy outdoor activities without sacrificing their budget. This options are also best if you have your private vehicle and your are located in South area.

1.  Evia along Daang Hari  - There are tables situated in the middle of the area, what we usually do is order at the nearest Shakey's Restaurant since we have Super Card so we take advantage of the  two pizza for the price of one.  Then we eat at the table, when my kids are done eating they enjoy at the playground area, just look after your kids carefully for their safety.  Aside from eating pizza you also have the option to buy food inside Rustan's Food Court, Bread Talk, or inside Rustan's Supermarket for a chips or cookies and drinks.

2.  Nuvali  - If you have gas and toll fee to spare and food to bring with you, then Nuvali in Sta Rosa Laguna will be the best place for you, just do not forget to bring utensils, picnic mat and ball so your kids can enjoy playing while you are relaxing and lying down on the Bermuda grass. No Entrance Fee and no need to dine in at the fancy restaurant, a whole lot of savings for you!
