Homeschooling: Breaking mindset on special awards

I wasn’t sure about about letting the kids join last school year’s moving up day. The kids don’t really attend Christian Legacy on a regular basis. They’re home schooled and just go there once a week to attend music, arts, P.E. and elective classes, and to mingle with other kids; so they are not really eligible for any real awards. But the MAPEH students are invited to join the annual event and are given “special” awards by their instructors. For me they were only “make up” awards. In one of our visits to the South, I told my mom how I […]

Kinky Boots Manila is proof you shouldn’t judge a musical by its title

I don’t know if you’ve heard about how poor nutrition has affected many kids’ performances in school, especially those in impoverished areas.

They simply have nothing healthy to eat. Funny enough, kids from families that are better off financially suffer from poor eating habits that affect their school standing. Studies have shown that the quality of food has a lot to do with a person’s […]

Easy Recipes: No Knead Artisan Bread

I love baking! It helps me relax and take my mind off the stressful and sometimes, dreary stuff that goes on in my head sometimes. I think I mentioned once that I even tried my hand at the baking business. My dad paid for a few workshops and off I went selling my cookies and my goodies at local bazaars. Alas!

A Mom’s Day Out Treat

Last Wednesday, Sun Life Financial treated mom bloggers to Mom’s Day Out at I’M hotel. We were welcomed to a hearty buffet at Bloom restaurant in the 4th floor where I enjoyed Japanese Tempura and assorted Maki. Yes, you read it right! I’m now starting to appreciate Japanese food more. I was actually disappointed to not have eaten sushi, haha! But I’m so bad with buffets, I just couldn’t go for another serving. I do want to go back there with the hubby with whom I’d be less shy to pig out, hahaha! Stock meal Buffet was lovely. I shared table […]
