Joined Asia Pacific Leaders’ Forum – Blogging 101 at Paradizoo and Residence Inn

rsz_1mbp_pinkWith more and more bloggers added to the industry everyday, it is relevant to keep up with what the readers need while staying true to your writing niche. With Zoomanity Group holding this year’s Asia Pacific Leaders’ Forum Blogging 101, bloggers like myself are fully supported and provided seamless and continuous training on how to excel and be responsible as we write.

In the coming weeks, feel free to bookmark this page or follow this page as I write about my takeaways from the bloggers’ forum. The day started with a tour of Paradizoo. And with an overnight accommodation at Zoobic Safari plus tickets (from my previous Zoocobia experience) I can use at Paradizoo, I will certainly come back with my family and kids in tow and you will certainly read about that experience on my upcoming posts. So off we went hopping from every inch and corner of Paradizoo. Among the highlights are opportunities to have visitors feed the animals, interact with them at a safe distance, all while reading all the relevant trivia posted around the fenced areas.

animals-birds

animals-blackducks

animals-camel

There were two spots where we saw Arabian camels. One was actually up for riding and the other one was caged and can be fed with greens.

animals-fiveleggedcow

animals-horses

animals-ostrich

animals-rabbits

And then there was the five-legged cow, countless horses and ostriches. It is hard to notice the spacious, grassy lawns around the animals. Kids will certainly have a good time running around the area, and will never run out of games to play while they walk around to see the animals. The rabbit cages look like a mini rabbit village, complete with mini rabbit houses and play area. Kids will surely love feeding the rabbits, just be ready for the smell of the animals, as they are placed right next to each other and can create pungent animal smell for kids.

animals-tiger

After the forum, it was time to go to Residence Inn Tagaytay. The albino Burmese python looks intimidating and super scary but was cold, quiet and non responsive, both in the cage and even while touched and held for photos. Was not brave enough to touch and pet the tiger, was woken up in between pictures and fed milk as visitors go into the fence for photos.

Honey is made available for anyone who wants to buy plus a butterfly garden full of it, that you will not know which one to take picture of. They are so many, the butterflies do not mind and do not get bothered as they land on plants, flowers and even on visitors!

vegetable garden

A farm is not a farm without the plants and the gardens. The vegetable garden is quite a view and it comes with good news as it offers fresh, organic vegetables that visitors can buy and take home.

bloggerfriendsIt was definitely a day empowering. The bloggers forum empowering us to write, network and develop accountability and responsibility, the tour refreshing our eyes with beautiful, picturesque nature view and the people we have added as valuable friends.

Responsible Blogging

Ethics in Blogging

How to get advertisers

Quality content Blogs are an amazing way to demonstrate expertise online, control message and build personal reputation and credibility as a writer. Being a blogger allows us to be journalists who make use of an online platform to tell a story. I am so happy to be meeting people through my blog pages, my pages allows me to clue people in on what I am passionate about. In the coming weeks, hoping to share with you what beauty God has created from the places I visited with my son and a team of friends.

zoocobiaBlogs allow you to easily tell stories, readers can interact with you and you can build relationships with them. Ministry has become bigger and every interaction allows you to show the same love from God you are receiving. Blogging allows you to differentiate yourself from others, too, showcase your personality and share information about yourself, and in my case, a product or an event review.

Zoocobia Visited, New Zooperb Rides Tried

Our day started with the group trooping to Clark Pampanga, our destination: Zoocobia. Mommies will surely appreciate a zoo that is no longer just offering animals to view. Zoocobia is more than just a zoo with caged animals, in fact, it is a zoo like no other. Have you ever thought that a 4×4 ride will be part of what a zoo can offer? Well, Zoocobia makes it possible.

clarkzilla
Clarkzilla 4×4 ride allows you to get on a 4×4 4-wheel-engine jeep ride along forest trail. Kids will surely love this new take on an adventure ride. The ride is not as dangerous as you would have it on sandy trail, which makes the ride perfect for conversation with kids. See where the trail starts with picture above.
Camels may have been a common picture from deserts, but guess what? It is a staple for Zoocobia. You see camels led by costumed guides and it is not just for viewing, it is up for a ride. Kids may never get to ride a camel anywhere else, other than in Zoocobia. These gentle giants will surely complete your Dubai Safari feel.

What I appreciate about Zoocobia is kids-appropriate attractions such as the Zoocology Museum. Animal bone and skeleton displays can complete any kid’s zoo experience.

The Barn – is where kids can explore where the camel and horses stalls are. It comes complete with hay and visiting it takes you to a real barn experience as kids can choose to feed, pet or interact with animals.
