ALOHA Mental Arithmetic: Of Games and Sharpening both Brains

Are you left-brained or right-brained? Maybe you already know that the two sides of our brains have totally different functions and that they play a role on how we perform in our daily tasks and challenges. When you’re left-brained, you’re considered to be logical and analytical, , but if you have a more dominant right brain, you are on the creative side.

Novuhair: Natural Treatment & Wellness from Inside Out

It took me until I’m nearing my 40’s to start thinking about my health seriously. I guess there wasn’t too much awareness back then on how to do it.

Side Show is a musical based on the true story of conjoined English twins, Daisy and Violet Hilton. While Side Show script stayed within the boundaries […]

I wasn’t sure what to expect, since this would be the first time we will try an ”academic” supplementary program. But judging through the videos we’ve seen, it seems to make Math so much fun to do. If you haven’t read my previous blog about ALOHA Mental Arithmetic, click this: Mental Math Fun with ALOHA Mental Arithmetic I included a video of kids who demonstrated their Math Wizardry using the ALOHA method in that blog.   Math isn’t exactly Lukas’ favorite subject.

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 […]
