Medieval Homeschooling

One of my favourite things about homeschooling is the room it gives our family to explore and study topics outside the traditional curriculum, which is what we’ve been doing over the past 13 years. We do ask our kids to study the Bible, learn Math concepts, study English and Science, using all the resources made available to them. The kids are free to choose from among the modules in the local DepEd’s ALS knowledge library, as well as explore other resources ,both online and off, that they can find. Since my kids are into game development and are trying to […]

Travel un-optioned

Traveling is relatively new to our family. Of course, the idea to travel wasn’t, but it took us a bit of time before we could actually get the plans going. We’ve been wanting to travel abroad and learn foreign cultures, but we realised it’s easier to start locally, after all, there are still a lot of places in the Philippines we haven’t explored nor seen, and local cultures we have not experienced.

It’s amazing how technology has transformed the face of many industries. Even small photography businesses can utilise technology […]

4 Things to check before you hire your moving company

When I worked for Choc Chip Digital, a web development and marketing company in Australia, one of my tasks included writing blogs for one of our clients who happens to run a boutique moving company. It was because of that particular task that I learned that there are actually professionally-trained movers that help you transport your things from one house to the next. We’ve moved houses 7 times over the past 15 years and I’ve always thought it was normal (and acceptable) that some of our stuff would end up with dents or scrapes. The last movers we hired had […]

A House to call our own

We almost took out a loan to build a house for ourselves last year. It wasn’t one of the wisest decisions we’ve made in our 15 years of marriage, but we thought it was the right thing to do at the time the idea was presented to us. Fortunately for us, things didn’t work out as planned and we are still here in the tiny abode that we’re renting, up on a hill, and right by one of Manila’s most progressive cities. I honestly think that how it all turned out was for the best. Of course, at that time, […]
