Our First Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Manila Experience

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. I read the Archie’s series, persevered on classics like Gone with the Wind, Wuthering Heights and Madame Bovary, and […]

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! And it all started when our old laptop conked out and we had to transfer files from the old laptop to the new. To free up more space, Jay thought it would be best to temporarily store our wedding photos in an external hard drive which turned out to be a bad decision because the hard drive ceased working and Jay had to extract the files and transfer them again.

Introduction to AI and Humanoid Robotics at Smarter Robotics

An interest in Robotics is something our eldest and youngest sons have in common.

The kids were divided into groups. In […]

I’ve seen it before, but I think that it was re-released because of the current Marie Kondo craze on Netflix when almost all wives are trying to get their homes in order. Or have you seen Sophia, the speaking robot? She’s a little creepy, but such a wonder to listen to, isn’t she? This is the direction the world is taking. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a first world country or in the third […]

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 […]
