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 […]

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.

Review: The 2-Week maxCEEmum effect

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. But when I turned 40, I started experiencing skin problems, not just on my face, but on other parts of my body, like eczema, skin tags, dry skin, age spots and for crying out […]
