My Kids Got Talent

Two weeks ago, our children's school had its 5th foundation day. My husband and I did not want to miss it because our children had practiced dancing for their presentation for quite a while.  I was really impressed and proud that my kids actually got talent in dancing. It's good that they have gotten it from their father who is good at dancing. I'm not a good dancer - in fact, I don't dance.

Let me share with you some of the photos my husband took.  I'll try to say what they danced though I'm not that familiar with some of them. I just know those which were popular during my growing up years.

My 10-year old son, Emmuel, danced to the tune of Beat It and Billy Jean by Michael Jackson.  I know these songs and who wouldn't know about them or Michael Jackson.

Emmuel danced Michael Jackson hits like Beat It and Billy Jean.
Janel, our 4-year old daughter, is thought to be the graceful dancer among my children. She danced to the tune of the song that Babe, babe, babe, oh... I don't know who sang that song.
Janel danced the song that Babe, Babe, Babe, oh.
Kristel, our 7-year old daughter, danced to the tune of Hot and Cold. This young lady sure practiced this song almost everyday, looking it up in YouTube.

This is a real surprise to me. Yuan, our 8-year old son, never talked much about their dance or practiced it at home. But I did not know that he can dance and he danced really well. His class danced to the tune of Macarena.

All the presentations of the students from Nursery to Grade 6 were really wonderful. I didn't watch the high school presentations but I heard that they were also really good.  The children really did their best and I salute the teachers also for doing a good job and for their patience in teaching all the children.

Thank you all for commenting. I sure am proud of each one of them. I thought that I wouldn't be able to watch them because of having to go to school 3 times because their presentations were scheduled in 3 different days. But I am really glad that I was able to watch them perform. Wouldn't miss it for the world.

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
