Take an Extreme Adventure or Just Chill at Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa

The last weekend of February had us driving to UPLB to fetch Ralph who went on an overnight debate competition. Since February 25 was declared as an official holiday, we thought that it would be the best time to spend the night at a resort in Los Baños. It was a last minute decision so I failed to reserve us a room at the Makiling Onsen Spa. Thankfully, Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa was just a few hundred meters and a phone call away.

It was actually my husband first discovered Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa. He saw a viral post on Facebook about it and tagged me. I didn't realize that it was also located in Los Baños until our car drove past its signage along the highway. Luck was on our side when I booked because there were still a few rooms available. As the night passed, we saw guests coming and checking in the rooms beside ours.

The NIDO FORTIFIED Science Discovery Center

Yesterday, Ralph and I attended the advanced screening of "Ice Worlds" a documentary film about the existence of ice in the Earth's polar caps and its relation to global warming and climate change. It will be shown starting on June 23, 2009 at the NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center at the SM Mall of Asia. This science museum is formerly known as the SM Science Discovery Center.

Aside from getting to witness the advance screening of the said documentary film, we were also able to go around the museum and enjoy the exhibits. The last time we visited the place, we were not able to spend more time with each exhibit as there were excursionists. The best time to visit the place, I gathered, was on a non-school day.

The Gravitram is the newest exhibit in the science museum. Gravitram is short for Gravity Tramway, a rolling ball sculpture created by Shabtay Levy and George Hohnstein wayback in 1973. Aside from the NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center, various museums around the world also exhibit the Gravitram.

The NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center is located at the Southside Entertainment Mall, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City and is open daily from 10 AM to 10 PM. For more information and ticket reservations, you may call 556-2153 and 556-0331 (group booking).
