"Every summer has a story, this summer what story you want to make and keep"?
Since summer is here and everyone needs to stay active, healthy and busy, especially the kids and the teenagers who are at their break from school. Because its summer and the memories are just waiting to happen. Get ready, because I came-up with this list of activities that I believe will help you overcome this very hot season of summer :in Iligan City.
BAYANI CHALLENGE VOLUNTEERING AT STA. ELENA. Looking for something worth the while activities? Then, I have this challenge for everyone who are fit to do volunteering activities. Well, nothing beats embracing the sense of volunteerism in our own community. You can form a group of fifteen (15) individuals and invade Sta. Elena, Iligan City. A summer time devoted for helping the victims of Sendong is one gratitude no one can ever pay. For sure your experience in this endeavor will serve as something you can be proud of your self for spending your summer time in a very productive way possible. For more information on this please visit Pilipinas Natin Movement.
GETTING INTO SPORTS. From a busy schooldays, summertime is the opportune time to develop your talent or skills in sports. If you want to learn soccer or football then you can contact www.gwapito.com I am sure he is the best person who can help you. You might also like to join your Barangay Summer Basketball League. This is the time where you can hang out with your neighbors and make friends and barkadas. Who knows your better-half is just one block away? Hmmm...
ENROL INTO SWIMMING LESSONS AT TIMOGA SWIMMING POOLS. My nephew Harvey Wayne is enrolling for swimming lessons over at Delamar Swimming Pool at Timoga, Buru-un Iligan City. If interested visit the place and inquire. As we are always faced with a great challenge which is Climate Change, therefore we should develop ourselves and learn some coping mechanisms in order for us to survive once nature strikes us. On the other hand, its another way also to exercise yourself and your family because you can enroll the whole family to a swimming lessons instead of just facing the computer and play Dota and etc.
FOOD TRIPS at JACKO's KAN-ANAN. Ever since I have tasted the food at Jacko's over at Hinaplanon, Iligan City my ever favorite is the crispy squid and the lumpia shanghai. If you are tired with the food that you can buy from the many fast foods, then, I recommend Jacko's Kan-anan. Since its summer, quenched your thirs with Jackoolers, a fruit flavoured coolers, their fruit flavoured shakes such as mango, durian, guyabano, and etc. But dont you ever dare forget to taste the crispy squid and the lumpia shanghai!
HIKING AND TREKKING MT. AGAD-AGAD. Challenge and engage yourself into major adventure this summer. Climb the highest peak of Iligan City. Mt. Agad-agad, it might not be the highest mountain but before going to trekking make sure you are fit and ready. Don't forget to bring a bottle of water, food, medicine, and other necessary things in trekking. In my Physical Education 4 class back in college. I learned that as a trekker you should never underestimate a mountain.
PLANNING A FAMILY PROJECT. If you want to be more productive as a family, then plan a family project and let everyone work on it. Make sure that everyone is involved. This would provide you a feeling of fulfillment especially when you successfully accomplished the project. Moreover, this activity will strengthen your family ties and sense of responsibility.
ENJOY NATURE AT NPC NATURES PARK. Up for an adventure with nature along with your young little one's? Spend a day with your family at NPC Natures Park at Brgy. Maria Cristina and indulge yourself with an experience with the animals such as crocodiles, monkey, colorful birds, snakes, butterflies, ostrich and the Maria Cristina Falls.
FAMILY WEEKEND GET-AWAY. You want to go somewhere outside the boundaries of Iligan City? You can have an overnight stay at the Midway White Sand Beach Resort over at Initao. Along the way you can have a canopy walk at Lasang Adventure and a picnic at the park just at the other side of the highway. In the national park you can explore the caves and the old trees and take photos while swimming at the sea and etc.
WATER-FALLING ADVENTURE. Out of the twenty three (23) identified waterfalls in Iligan City, I am sure you were not able to get familiarize each of them. This summer might be your family's one good chance to get to know these majestic waterfalls of our city. Its quite surprising when Iliganon's themselves were not able to visit Maria Cristina Falls, Tinago Falls, Mimbalot Falls, Pampam Falls, Dalipuga Falls, Dodiongan Falls, Langilanon Falls. These are just few of the twenty three (23) I just made mention. I am 100% sure that in a day or two you will get familiarized with your own community by visiting this in famous display of nature.
OUTDOOR PICNIC AT DALIPUGA CENTENNIAL PARK. If you don't want extreme adventure then why not just take a box of Calda Pizza with you and your family and brought it over at Dalipuga. You know, a picnic together with all the members of the family will help better develop bonds with each member of the family. So why spoil summer by spending your precious time inside your home when you can explore the outdoors? Make sure when you go out apply something on your skin just like a sun screen lotion so that even though you are under the sun, you will have no worries og getting sun burned.
SUMMER IS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES, but be extra careful. Too much exposure of the sun is bad enough for our sensitive skin. In addition make sure you are fully hydrated when you go under the sun and never forget to bring water when you go out. Beware of Heatstroke!!!
Lets beat the heat!
