Whenever I attend events, I make sure that I get to learn something interesting from it. The media tokens are just a plus but the possible things you can learn are priceless, not to mention the interesting people you’ll meet as well. Yesterday, I was invited at the ribbon cutting of Mr Yupangco’s farms inside the Paradizoo.
It was a typical tour with a few briefing and introduction of the Power Of Three ((floral, vegetable and agri-livestock festival) which happens from January to March 17. As you all know, I love nature so much. The morning air felt so cool and relaxing despite the heat of the sun. We each admired the flowers, the vegetables that the farmers have planted and all the adorable animals that roamed around the farm. .
The Flower Garden
I feel like I’m in Bali!
You know, this place kind of resembles the Miracle Garden in Dubai. Although they don’t have all these pretty gigantic heart-shaped sculpted flowers but in all honesty, this place is a paradise.
An interesting fact:
Did you know that you can attract butterflies through female urine? All you need to do is mix flower petals with female urine on a basin of water and ferment it for 3 days. You’ll be surprised a lot of butterflies will be swarming on it. A fact I learned through chit chatting with a very intelligent Mr Yupangco who owns the Paradizoo, Residence Inn, Zoobic Safari and all Zoomanity theme parks in the country.
This pot of flowers smells like…..uhm, urine? LOL.
So many Bonsai!
I was so inspired by this tree that I created a poem for it.
One by one, they have swept away and blown by the wind. Each day, I grasped desperately.
Trying to recall the memory
I try. I fail. I try again.
I know her face. I know her voice. I’m not sure and I violently shake my head.
I feel like I’m long dead.
I cannot utter these names. All a jumble of mess. It looks like chaos,
All shouting. Too loud like a thunderstorm.
He yells. He screams. He lost all dreams.
He is standing tall and still.
Hydroponics farming is a method of growing plants in nutrient solutions. They are being grown without soil.
A lot of adorable animals. I love to take home this cute donkey.

There’s this amazing fact about apples. I didn’t know that the reason why an apple is shiny is that it is coated in wax! I have been eating an apple and sometimes I don’t wash it especially if I’m too hungry. Little did I know I am also eating wax from it. However, after doing a bit of research about these wax coating, I learned that the wax coated on apples to make them shiny is called shellac- is a resin secreted by the female lac bug, on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. It is processed and sold as dry flakes and dissolved in ethanol to make liquid shellac, as per Google.

Paradizoo also offers an accommodation for family and for solo travelers. I like this room with its very barn-like feel and definitely much Filipino at the same time with the banig concept.
If you are a traveler of 4, you may also book this nice trailer room. Small but cozy and only costs less than a thousand peso.
