Come Home Safe and Sound: Wear Your Seatbelt

seat belts safety, safety driving, drive safely, seatbelts for kids


Life is short and we never know what will happen next, while riding a bus or driving your car. It is always nice to play safe most of the time for your family and friends, who are expecting you to come home safe. It doesn’t really matter how fast you reach your destination, what matters are the life you put in your hands, especially when you bring your kids with you.

December 16, 2011, it was my daughter’s 6th birthday; we went out to celebrate. It was an hour long drive away from home. My husband has some few drinks so I decided to drive the car. My two kids age 11 and 5 were sleeping at the back seat tired from the activities we had all day, while I and my husband are talking. On our way home hitting 100km an hour speed, I tipped off the road’s shoulder and zigzagged avoiding the path holes due to some roads under construction. I decided to hit the piled yard beside the road and stopped just a few feet away from the electric post. I thanked God we’re safe but the kids were horrified.  I cried seeing my kids crying and husband in shock!

I was so thankful that we were wearing seatbelts at the time. I realized how important it is, that no matter how tired and anxious you are to drive and head your way home or to your destination, always bear in mind that above all, safety comes first. Buckling up on each and every ride is the most essential thing a family can do to remain safe in the car. It will only take a little of your time but will save your life from unforeseen circumstances.

Driving with kids is such a big responsibility no matter how short the trip is or how careful you are when driving.  First of all, never put your kids on the front seat, it’s a big no! Kids below thirteen years of age have to sit at the back seat for safety purpose. Kids below three years old must have an appropriate car seat. This is very important since at their age, seatbelts are usually big and won’t fit them. If there’s no car seat, adjust the seatbelt to fit them. Have your kids sit straight when using seat belts, we all know they want to slouch, move around and play inside the car. Remember to never let them put the shoulder belt below their arms or behind their back, most children do this because it irritates them. Explain to them the importance of wearing seat and shoulder belt. Let them know that a little bump may injure them one way or another if they won’t buckle up. Of course parents need to be their role model. Show them that you care for them and that you are a responsible parent.

Accidents happen when we least expect it. Buckle up your seatbelts and drive your way home to your family safely!

Visiting Burnham Park

During our stay in the City of Pines, Baguio City, we never missed the chance to visit the well-known Burnham Park named after the famous American architect and urban planner, Daniel Hudson Burnham. The Park is located at the heart of the city, popular for its manmade lake located at the center of the park where my kids got to enjoy the boat ride, boats are available for rent. You will surely enjoy the place. Some of its attractions include boating, skating areas, bicycle, gaming and sports areas. The park is covered with beautiful flowers. I saw some families having their picnic on the grounds too. Souvenir shops are also available within the area.

Strawberry Farm at Baguio City

Coming from Davao del Norte, my kids never had the chance to eat a strawberry fruit. When we went to Baguio City for a family reunion, I really tried my best to visit the strawberry farm and bought some strawberries. Although the berries are not that big like the ones I have back in Japan, I still bought some and have my kids taste it. It's actually sour, so I bought a condensed milk to dip the berry. With the milk, they then started to appreciate the taste. Well its fun, the only regret I have was not able to pick the fruit myself.

The Strawberry Farm is located just 30 minutes from Baguio City, knowing Baguio as the strawberry and summer capital of the Philippines, visiting the farm is a MUST! The photos below were taken about 4-5pm in the afternoon but the fogs are already visible. This was during the summer of April, 2011. Outside the farm are stalls of souvenir shops, we were amazed by the fact that we were able to use our credit card on one of the stalls.

Sea Lion Show @ Manila Ocean Park

Well It has been a great experience for the kids and the adults as well. We were able to watch and meet the adorable sea lions of South America as they do their stunts as mandated by their trainers. It was really fun watching the sea lions hold a ball, stand, swim and even make a sound. I think they even turn around like they were dancing. The show is located inside Manila Ocean park, it's one of the park's attraction.
