MckLinky Blog Hop: Favorite Christmas Memory - Christmas Carols

Christmas is this week.  As we await that blessed day, my daughter and I like to watch videos from You Tube.  We saw these 3 kids singing some Christmas Carols.





I was happily joining the singing when she asked me, "How come you know the songs?" Well, I told her that when I was still a kid, my sister, brother and I love to sing Christmas carols. We actually went from house to house around our neighborhood and sang Christmas Carols in front of each house. How glad we were when after caroling, our kind neighbors give us some coins or even 5 peso bills (sort of like the Trick or Treat during Halloween).  It was fun and sometimes adventurous because at times we were chased by our neighbors dogs.  Thank God we were not bitten by any. 

That is actually one of my favorite Christmas memories. I don't see much children singing Christmas Carols anymore like we used to when we were little.  But I still like to sing Christmas Carols especially those that really express the real meaning of Christmas.  My favorites are Joy to the World, O Come Let Us Adore Him, O Holy Night and We are the Reason (this is not really only sung at Christmas but it gives a more complete picture of why Jesus was born on Christmas Day).

Let me just greet everyone, "A BLESSED CHRISTMAS!"
A wonder-filled life is yours when you know the Christ of Christmas!

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
