Learning Filipino at The Learning Library this Summer

Our previous experience with The Learning Library is nothing short of memorable. It was the first time we sought help in teaching our kids Filipino, and was also the first time I crossed EDSA on public transport all by myself with just the three of them. They were so much younger. Pablo was around 10 years old and Lukas was 6. Pablo joined their Wika’y Saya class, while Lukas was recommended to attend the Talas – Salitaan class.

I didn’t get to watch TV for a big part of my childhood. TV was, in our parents’ opinion, those days’ gadgets that staled kids’ brains and dumb us down. So, instead of updating myself on the popular sitcoms, I spent my growing up years poring over Nancy Drews, Agatha Christies and Erle Stanley Gardners; I giggled at young love in Sweet Dreams and Sweet Valley Highs, and graduated to the likes of Sidney Sheldon and Danielle Steele by High School.

How July saved our Marriage

It’s a running joke between me and Jay that he put our marriage on the rocks because he lost our wedding photos, haha!

How we lost our wedding photos There […]
