Malahide has it!

Last July 27- 28, 2013 was the Malahide Festival entitled , "Malahide Has It". It was a fun-filled day with lots of activities for everyone. My worry that day was the weather. I don't know if you heard but it always rain in Ireland. But that day the sun was smiling directly on us which made the event even better. 


Kiddies Play Area: Adventure Bounce
Chess Challenge
Giant Connect Four
Meet Your Favorite Animal
Gecko Lizard
This is the snake that my husband kept on pushing me to hold for picture sake. By the way,  he never succeeded
Room For One (Traditional Music)

In every festival, Fun Fair is always there to make everything even more exciting for kids and adults alike.  There were plenty of rides at the Malahide Beach. But I never tried riding any of it because I'm not in a good condition to do that. 


Free Style
Sea Storm
Merry-Go-Round
Shake
Different cuisines were available in the Food Stalls like Irish Food, Indian Foods and American Foods. 
Chicken Tikka Masala
Kajjal Barbecue had the best lamb and chicken barbecue that day. 
Khoka Bar serving a very yummy Mango Smoothies
Puppet Show was a big hit too for kids and parents.

In one of the busy street was the concert stage where I've caught this very good choir. They sang famous songs of Sister Act like "I Will Follow Him", "My Guy" , and "Hail Holy Queen". I was totally amused with their angelic voices especially the one with red hair. It's so unfortunate though because we were late to see them so I didn't get the name of the choir. 



Just to let you know I used my camera phone to take all the pictures here. We decided not to bring the big ones so we can enjoy the day more. We'll probably go back next year for this event.

  14. This festival is a superb experience for everybody ( I assumed). Every member of the family whether the kiddos at any age, grand parents or just adults will enjoy the entertainment the event offer. There are some events that solely focusing in one theme that sometimes kids will not enjoy much. I would like to experience a fun filled event like this one.

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Seeing the Other Side of the World

I've been living here in Ireland for nearly five years now. I never thought I will be given a chance to the other side of the world. When I decided to come with my husband here, I carried a special joy in my heart because I know my life will change according to God's will. 

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
