Review: Ballet Philippines’ Tales of the Manuvu

I had very little idea of what Tales of the Manuvu was about before we came to see it, except that I learned that it was originally staged in 1977, which featured the incomparable Ms. Celeste Legaspi on vocals, and that it was about the story of creation, as told by the tribe of Manobo. As a child, I read different folk stories on creation in my older siblings’ text books. The one I remember the most was Si Malakas (strong/man) at si Maganda (beauty/woman). I remember it so well because of the art work on the page that drew me […]

Easy Watercolor Art to Teach your Homeschoolers

One of the things that worry homeschooling moms is finding (or being able to afford) classes for their children, especially during summer time.

I’ve been interested in skin care products since I turned 40. If you’re in your 40’s, I’m pretty sure you understand that skin health is no longer something we can put aside. Not unless, of course, if we make it an option to just let skin trouble happen to us. I’ve been told more than once in my youth that my skin was my biggest asset.

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.
