It was my first time to join the educational tour in MNHS (Mambugan National High School) where I currently work as a Grade 8 teacher. I actually thought it was boring, but since most of my students from my advisory class are joining and my son would join as well, I thought of giving it a try-- perfect time to bond with them on a Sunday though I was sleepless the night before the said trip. Well, how can I know if I won't try?
Our first stop was the historical Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit Cavite. This is highly recommended for students who are not familiar yet with our history.

After almost 30 minutes or more of waiting, we finally got inside and all of us were amazed how they were able to preserve this place. The house was actually big- and for you to have many and huge rooms in the house, at that time, you belong to the affluent class.

Our next stop was Palace in the Sky in Tagaytay. This is just a great place for sightseeing and enjoying the breathtaking view. I am thinking of the possibility of visiting this place in summer (I will stay either in The Tagaytay Lake View Hotel or Discovery Tagaytay and visit different places including Sky Ranch for the kids if I stil have enough money, hehehe!). It was relaxing there-- too bad, we had to go because we needed to go to Enchanted Kingdom. Unfortunately, when we reached the place, it was already past 3pm :-( I decided to try the Space Shuttle, but it took us more than two hours to fall in line-- the queue was just too looooong, there were times I wanted to leave but then i spent hours waiting already. When i finally got into the seat, I never thought that was too scary until we moved- that was the moment when I thought the possibility that i would never come back--any moment, the ride would stop or something would happent to the engine. It was like something was hitting my head too hard that after the ride, I had a terrible headache and I wasn't able to go to school the following day. I really didn't enjoy the ride-- it was more of a torture. I would never ever try that ride again. I wasn't able to tour the whole place, but my experience was enough-- there will be NO second time.
As an educator, I don't recommend EK to be a part of the itinerary simply because it would consume much of your time. If the purpose of your tour is just to have fun, probably you can just devote all your time there (no other places to visit) so you can make most out of your day. Of course, if our purpose is to educate the kids and let them have fun at the same time, a perfect itinerary should be considered.
