Stay at Home Blessings Blog Makeover | Grab My Badge

Time flies so fast. Our 5-week vacation in the Philippines is over. It was really great to have some break. But now I'm back blogging.  I would share some pictures and thoughts about our vacation in my next blog post/s.

In this post, I would just like to say that I gave my blog another makeover.  When I was in the Philippines, I took the opportunity to ask my sister who is a graduate of Fine Arts to make a header and a banner for this blog.  Thanks so much, sis!

I was not able to do the makeover in the Philippines. It was only last night when I worked on my new blog design. This is how it looks now.  What do you think? You think, I need to change anything else? I'm not really an expert in designing.

Stay at Home Blessings New Blog Design
I think this header gives my blog a more personal touch. Also, since I'm using the Blogger template designer, I could easily change the color and layout of this blog if I want to. It was also good to learn how to design blogs using the Blogger template designer. Maybe I could share some how-tos in later blog posts.

Below is the new 125x125 blog banner that my sister designed.  Anyone would like to grab my badge? Just drop me a line in the comment section and I'll grab your blog badge, too (as long as your blog is wholesome  and somewhat in a similar niche as mine).

Got to go.   

Count your blessings...

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. Image taken from When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

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
