Zao Vietnamese Bistro

We can’t always take the kids to try different cuisines, but we try our best to introduce them when we have the chance to do so. Yesterday was one of those evenings when Jay and I found ourselves already hungry while waiting for Pablo to get back from what turned out to be a whole-day event with his former leader and Victory group (Bible Study group for pre-teens). We’ve been wanting to invite his former VG leader and one of his closest friends, Benj, to dinner with us for months anyway; and though it wasn’t at all planned, we found […]

Useful Tips When Choosing Moving Companies for Long Distance Moves

If you’ve ever seen that movie Cheaper by the Dozen 1 with your kids, they can probably relate to how the Baker kids felt when their family had suddenly needed to leave their beloved Midland home for another city because their dad got a job offer that was too good to turn down.

The condition of our hair, apparently, is one of the ways we can gauge our health. Of course, falling hair is natural – that is, if you’re losing the normal count of 100 strands a day.

Why you should register for EFL’s Philippine Homeschool Convention, On Fire!

I was just really blown away by the topics they have for this year’s Philippine Homeschool Convention and thought that, if you haven’t registered yet, I hope I’m not too late in helping you make up your mind about it. It’s really a heck of a topic list and I think it would be a such a waste if we don’t get to listen to them. It’s a season for homeschool conventions, apparently. I, myself, just completed the one hosted by our kids’ home school provider, Philippine Christian School of Tomorrow (PCST). What do you gain from homeschool conventions? A […]
