There's Nothing As Great As Being Together

These are some of the photos we had last vacation. They are pictures of our family enjoying together a dip in the private pool of a kind relative of ours to beat the heat. There's nothing really as great as being together as a family! Of course, it's not always fun like this in the pictures. The everyday reality is far from what the pictures convey. But still....

It's Great to be Together

I know that it's school days again and we just spent a handful of money in sending them to school here (abroad). Sometimes, I'm contemplating whether it's better to stay home in the Philippines because it is pretty expensive to send children to school here. (My budget says it was about Php250 per child per day [take note: tuition only] and we have 4 children going to school).  However, if we (the kids and I) stay in the Philippines, that would mean we would really miss Daddy; we would have to make a huge adjustment (to the weather, to the culture and lifestyle, we don't have a house yet, I don't know how to drive, etc.

SO.... if we could manage to be together, it's best to be together. This set-up won't be forever, of course, especially when the children are grown up, they would eventually have to go. That's why, hubby and I wanted to enjoy them first while they are still young. Besides, there's nothing like a father and a mother's love when it comes to taking care of the children, right?

Do you agree with me that There's NOTHING as great as being together?

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
