Wonders of the World Scrapbook

Last time, I shared a scrapbook project that I and my daughter did together. In this post, I would just like to share this scrapbook project that my son did for his Civics class. It is called the Wonders of the World Scrapbook.  Thanks to PhotoPeach, I was able to put it in a nice slideshow. I did not want to put all 13 photos in the post and fill up the whole page.

Wonders of the World Scrapbook on PhotoPeach

These are the things he did for the project (Of course, I helped him out):
1. He looked for the Wonders of the World photos he included in the scrapbook, printed and cut them out. I think almost all of the pictures are from Wikipedia.
2. He used MS Word Word Art to make the front cover title (he used an outline font layout); printed it and colored it. He could have done it manually if he knew how to do lettering. Then he cut them and pasted them on a different colored paper to make the letters stand out.
3. He used two colors (white and red) card board paper for the pages. He cut them out to the desired size (6x6 in).
4. He used the excess card board paper and cut them in small squares to be used as background for the photos.
5. He assembled each page of the scrapbook by pasting the small squares, then the photos and the caption.
6. He then used colored pens with designs and used them to add designs to the sides of the white pages.
7. He put 2 buttons on the top of each page using a puncher and I tied the ribbon loosely.

This is just a simple scrapbook. What other ideas do you have about making scrapbooks?

For school projects, it's worth the effort to do scrapbooking. I also like better digital scrapping when I have to deal with digital photos.

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
