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 […]

Wika’y Galing at The Learning Library

Toy Kingdom is now at Kidzania Manila

Did you know they allow kids to do that? My kids go around the place in scooters, shoot hoops and even do hula hoops. And what better way to teach kids about business than giving them a taste at the store they love so much? Anyway, Toy […]

Easy Recipes: Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli Dish

I honestly don’t know how to call this dish so I’m just going to be literal about it — I call it Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli dish. I just came up with it last night, but I think I’ve based it on an eggplant cracker dip I once saw. Only that I added broccoli and beef, and left out the cream for this one. Anyway, I’ve been struggling to go back to a low carb diet (just so hard to steer clear of rice, bread, and pasta when you’re a Filipino!) and I thought last night was as […]
