Couple Bianca Gonzalez and JC Intal enjoy going on trips.
Which is why, Bianca said, she feels very fortunate that her daughter, Lucia, is an easy travel partner.
“Suwerte. Super, super suwerte,” the celebrity mom cheered as she shared family anecdotes with a small group of press people during the launch of Manulife’s new app, GradMaker
“That’s the thing that we enjoyed, kami ng husband ko, na gawin nung kaming dalawa pa lang mag-boyfriend-girlfriend.
“So, nadamay si Lucia when she was born.”
She said Lucia was three months old when they took her to her first trip to El Nido in Palawan, where she and JC tied the knot.
At seven months, Lucia had her first international flight when her dad and mom brought her to the United States.
According to Bianca, traveling is actually a good way to let a child pick up milestones faster.
She said, “I really notice this, pati a lot of my friends, kapag dinala mo ang anak mo to travel, anywhere...
"Kahit sa beach dito sa Batangas or madala mo siya sa Hong Kong, ang dami niyang milestones when you get home.
“My brother also said the same thing. Mahilig din sila mag-travel.
"Sabi ko, ‘Bakit kapag uwi ni Lucia, parang sunud-sunod milestones niya?’
“I remember when she was six months, biglang she was sitting up, holding a spoon, basta dire-diretso.
“It’s because daw, when they're traveling, parang, nao-open yung horizon na parang yung senses nila nabubuksan.
“Ang dami nila nakikitang bago so maraming nadedevelop.
“Kahit alam kong wala siyang maaalala, kami lang, yun, enjoy pa rin.”
At two years old, Lucia has been to Palawan, Boracay, and many places abroad. She has traveled with her mom and dad to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the U. S, and Hong Kong and Singapore in Asia.
LOVE FOR THE OUTDOORS. Bianca said she is also grateful that Lucia enjoys the outdoors.
Every morning and afternoon, the celebrity host takes her toddler to the neighborhood playground.
She said, “My style has been para malayo siya sa tablets, I bring her to the playground every day.
“Twice a day, morning and afternoon, para lang when she comes home, she plays with play doh, books.
“Thankfully, she likes going to the playground a lot.
“She’s athletic, outdoorsy. She likes nature.
“But then, I don’t know kung gusto niya talaga or sinanay lang namin.
“Thank god, she’s very outdoorsy!”
