There are so many things you can do with your grandparents. Here are 10
1. Eat. Take them to your newly discovered favorite restaurant.
2. Cook. If your grandpa or grandma has recipes you’ve always loved, get a cooking lesson for them and learn how to make the dishes you loved as a child. One of my all-time favorite memories is how my grandpa taught me how to make caramelized Spam and sausages.
3. Watch a movie. Don’t forget the popcorn.
4. Hear the Sound of Music. The production started yesterday. You can catch the beloved tale of Maria and the Von Trapps at Resorts World. Tickets range from P1,000 to P2,000. Call the Resorts World Manila Hotline at 836-6333, 908-8833.
5. Feel the beat of Stomp. Concertus Manila has brought in this groundbreaking musical that offers fun for all ages. You can catch it from October 18 to 23 at CCP’s Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo. Ticket prices range from P750 to P5500. Call TicketWorld at 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph.
6. Shop. Or window shop. Take them to stores that are newly opened, take them to malls you think they will love.
7. Learn something new together. Whether it’s scrapbooking or yoga or sculpting clay, you’re sure to have fun.
8. Look at old photo albums and enjoy remembering the good old times.
9. Help them discover the wonders of technology. Teach them how to text. Or e-mail. Or Google—even if all they want to Google are bed bugs.
10. Talk. And I mean really talk. Ask all the things you’ve never asked them before. How they met. What they love about each other. What they remember about your childhood. What they remember about theirs. What’s on their bucket list. What they’re passionate about. Their regrets. Their happiest memories. These conversations are precious and they will last you a lifetime.
