Learning and Fun ALL in One App!

Ever heard of a game where you play and at the same time, LEARN? Yes, I know the moment you read that question, you will instantly ask, "Is that even possible these days?"

The answer is YES.

This is possible with Wisdomantics which I recently discovered at the Apple App Store. I know, how cool is the game when you relate it to spiritual growth? Wisdomantics is a fun game for players which allows them to gain the wisdom of King Solomon. Yes that is from the Bible verses. So basically here's how it works:

"This game combines 400 multiple choice quotes from the book of Proverbs, and a state-of-the-art interactive board game. The iPad users will also enjoy board game illustrations that chronicle the life of Solomon. The user friendly programming removes the guess work and blends chance, knowledge, and strategy. The first player to build Solomon’s temple wins!" - www.Wisdomantics.com

My weekends are meant to be spent with my children so I tried this game and guess what? The kids loved it too. In a span of a few minutes, all of us were able to read a couple of scriptures from the Bible. How cool is that? I love that the game’s major goal is to bring players together in a fun environment. So, this is definitely perfect for families like we have! It also imparts the families with wisdom from Solomon which eventually they can then apply to their own lives. Why? Because the 400 multiple choice questions/quotes are actual scriptures taken directly from the book of Proverbs.

This is the game that I've been looking for all my life. Well, I would say, "all my life as a parent". I noticed that kids nowadays spend a whole lot of time online. They cannot leave the house without their Ipads. Instead of playing outside, they are focused on their laptops/netbooks or computers. Kids nowadays don't watch TV that much anymore. And EVERYBODY does it, right, even us parents? We rely heavily on the internet. We read books with out tablets. We save emails, recipes, documents in our computer. Our photos are now stored in our hard drives. Everything is just in our gadgets, ready to use anytime we wanted to.

So the only thing that I wished for is to find a game that is suitable for my children. Some game that will allow them to learn and mold them into good Christians. And looks like God was listening to my prayers, because last weekend, I found Wisdomantics. I explored the game of course (and with my children) and I noticed that it is indeed very "lively" from the graphics to the color of the game to the game board itself. It actually illustrates chronicle Solomon’s life. As soon as you begin with the game you will notice that it is focused on Solomon’s most notable acts and achievements and end with a divided kingdom through his disobedience and rebellion. See, I didn't even know this particular story of King Solomon!

Another plus about this game? It is user friendly! It was sooo easy to use, believe me, even my 7 year old was able to play with it. And thanks to the pretty game board and illustrations, she was captivated. You can opt to play on your own (Solo Game) or with a group (Multi-Player Game). As for us, it is the latter.

Opportunites such as these make me grateful for the gift of gadgets and the internet. Why?

Because if not for the internet, I wouldn't be able to discover Wisdomantics, a beautiful game for families. And if not for the gadgets, tablets and smartphones, I wouldn't be able to play and discover this game. Thanks to Wisdomantics, my kids look forward to going home as soon as possible on weekends because we will be playing as a family. The bonding that we create while playing, the stories we tell in between our turns in the board game. I think this is the perfect game that we really need now and for the next few months. ♥

2015 Birthday Getaway: So Long, Batangas!

We didn't want to leave but we had to and eventually had to go back to "reality".

So, so long, La Chevrerie Resort! So long, Batangas!


Thank you for a quick but unforgettable weekend. ♥


We were able to relax and unwind and bond as a family. ♥


Moments like these are the moments that we will forever cherish and hopefully we will repeat again and again and again.

Makes so much Sense.


Yes. Simply let that go. And move on.

Sharing a Song this SUNDAY: Wake Up

Yes, it's time to wake up and enjoy the rest of the summer!


Happy Weekend!

Just dropping by to greet you all a Happy Weekend!


Happy to be able to spend a couple of hours with the Hubby too!


Good Coffee + Handsome Date = PERFECT Saturday Morning! ♥♥♥

2015 Birthday Getaway: Breakfast to Start Off the Day Right.

Yes, as they all usually say, eat breakfast before anything else. So, that's what we did on our second (and last) day in La Chevrerie Resort.

This cup of coffee made our breakfast even more great!


I loved this one cup of capuccino so much! And it perfectly goes well with my omelette and pancakes.


YUUUUM!

Our overall experience at La Chevrerie was short but definitely unforgettable. Will we ever go back?

Yes, we will!

2015 Birthday Getaway: Dinner Time at the A'Telier Restaurant at La Chevrerie Resort

Aside from the healthy food and the airy place of the main restaurant in La Chevrerie Resort, what I love about it is the variety of food that they offer. ♥


From Filipino dishes to Itallian cuisine, they got everything we craved for during the weekend that we were there.


But, for dinner, we decided to order this very good pizza for the whole family.


It was good and tasty and most importantly, the kids love, love it!

We are now excited for breakfast. After all, that's what vacations are for, right? (*grin*)
