Forever Love: Leaving a legacy for your children with AIA Philam Life

One of the things that I have become increasingly aware of when I became a mother is my mortality and how it affects my children should anything happen to me. Growing up, the most I’ve been taught about preparing for my financial future was to save a portion of my money and put it in the bank.  No one explained to me how it works except that it would be something I can withdraw in cases of emergency. I guess, one of the things that contributed to my ignorance on these things was my youth. I lived quite rebelliously and […]

Elephant Grounds in BGC

I don’t hate the Pandemic season altogether. Sure, it has its restrictions, but I think that for many people, it has grounded us and helped us reflect on the things that truly matter in our lives and how we want to live our lives moving forward – including showing our appreciation for some of the people God has sent to us.

Well, also because I want to get my eyes off the monitor as much as i can, so instead of looking through websites, I went old school. Since it looks like we’re going to spend the holidays at home, I thought I’d get a head start on the holiday menu. Anyway, i chanced upon a very interesting milk puff recipe on FOOD magazine that does not require any baking powder, but uses powdered milk and more eggs than usual. It’s actually a recipe […]

Medieval Homeschooling

One of my favourite things about homeschooling is the room it gives our family to explore and study topics outside the traditional curriculum, which is what we’ve been doing over the past 13 years. We do ask our kids to study the Bible, learn Math concepts, study English and Science, using all the resources made available to them. The kids are free to choose from among the modules in the local DepEd’s ALS knowledge library, as well as explore other resources ,both online and off, that they can find. Since my kids are into game development and are trying to […]
