What is Your Dream Family Car?

Sponsored Post.

An SUV, van or sedan?

If you will ask me what my dream family car is, I would answer a van. It will always be my first choice. Why? Because it's spacious and can contain so much, haha. Seriously, comfort when travelling is on top my list why I would want a van like this.

A van is spacious, hence you will be more comfortable especially during long trips. You can actually bring the entire family along. Aside that you can bring many things and you can also put additional things you can buy along the way during road trip. 

However, my husband would answer a different car. He always tell me how he loves to have a pick-up truck like this one.

Whenever we saw such pick-up truck, he would always tell me that's his dream car. I ask him why, he told me pick-up looks manly and stylish. He also added that aside from the manly style, having the cargo bed at its back is a factor why he would like to own one. He has a point because if you have pickup truck, moving from one place to another is easier and cheaper. Also, you can save for delivery fee if you shop for new furniture or appliances.

But wait, we still have a little boy whose opinion matters too. He would probably want a sports car like this.

Why? He loves McQueen! As simple as that, haha.

Whatever brand or style of car you have in mind, don't forget to do research first. Digital automotive site like Cars.com will be of great help. At Cars.com, you can find different local dealers and sellers. You can also do research and compare cars' prices, specifications, safety features and a lot more. Comprehensive set of research tools and consumers reviews are available too.

Hopefully, in the near future, we can buy our dream family car. It can be one of the above or all of them, in God's time. 

How about you, what's your dream family car?

A Quick Visit to Our Old School

Last weekend we went to our hometown as per Daddy A's lola's request. She's currently with us looking after Matthew because we still can't find a house help. It was just a quick trip because the next day we went home na din since Matthew had a Pedia's appointment for his annual flu vaccine. But before we go home, we had a quick trip to our old school.

This is DepEd CLSU Elementary school where Daddy and I spent our grade school years.

There are so many changes but that front stage remained the same. Looking at it, I can't help but remember my grade school days. Every morning we were lining up to have our flag ceremony that includes singing the national anthem and Panatang Makabayan. Sometimes there were small programs where selected students showcased their dancing or singing talents.

I can't forget when we were practicing our Sabayang Pagbigkas piece. It was my first time to perform in front of many people. I was a shy girl then and while performing I can;t help but tremble. Good thing the guitar music background like that gibson firebird at musiciansfriend.com helped me relaxed and made it through.

The building next to it naman was also our old school where we went for highschool. There were changes too but the old building is still there.

Then our little boy brought us to this part of the school.

Where Daddy A's donation were. (Read: Re-visiting Elementary Alma Mater)

Our little boy always tell us that his Daddy's name was written on these benches.

He must be proud of his Dad.

He also asked me to took photo of him in front of this Makabayan Park.

And this Solar System mural.

I will never forget this pathway where we always walked through during college days.

Finally, the best part of going home is bringing a box of fresh vegetables.

That's our short and quick trip. Looking forward to visiting other places in my old school.

Happy weekend!
