Highly Recommended: Superbook Season 4 on ABS CBN

”My God is not weak!’‘ David says indignantly right before his sword went down on Goliath’s neck, marking the giant’s defeat. This scene was part of A Giant Adventure episode from Superbook which I received a copy of from Superbook and CBN Asia. I’ve always loved the story of David. His is a story of a true worshiper of God who leaned on Him and walked His purpose. I wasn’t able to go to the Media Conference because of a conflict with my kids’ schedule, but Superbook has always been my favorite since I was a child. It was one […]

Toy Kingdom is now at Kidzania Manila

Kidzania, as I now completely understand, is a kingdom on its own and the kids […]

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. Judah, then, was too young, but he came along and hung out with me at the nearby Circle K while we waited […]
