Buying Gifts After Christmas Sales 2011

As I mentioned in another post, we will be bringing our children to the store to buy them their Christmas gifts hoping there will be some sale. Before Christmas, we were so busy with other things that it was only after Christmas that we were able to go. There weren't any after Christmas sales in the store we went to. Anyway, these are the gifts our children chose for themselves.

The two boys got an addition to their Wii game - the Skylanders game. My two sons are really enjoying this game.

The three girls got some girly stuff.

The younger two got a dog stuffed toy named Jasper. They are the ones who still like to play make belief with stuffed dolls.

My 7-year old got a Bratz Math learning toy. It's really nice. She can practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with it. Well, even her siblings can do so, too. Good preparation as well for them because all of them qualified for their school's upcoming Math Quiz Bee after the elimination round.

Even if there are no before or after Christmas sales here, there's one After Christmas sale online that I am going to avail of. That is the 50% off everything sale of Arts Cow until December 31, 2011. I am now going to put together all our 2011 photos in one photo book and order them from Arts Cow. I have ordered several photo books from them already and the quality is really commendable. Even some of my friends have  created an account with them and ordered their photo books from them.

If you want to avail of this 50% off offer by Arts Cow, just go over there and when you order anything, just put the Coupon code HALFOFF and you will get the discount.

There's another offer they are giving, just in case you may want to put your photos on stretched canvass. Save $1-$4 and shipping fees ($5.99 - 8.99) on each piece of stretched canvass you order. Just put the Coupon code STRETCHCAN.

If you just prefer to have free shipping on your order only, you can use the coupon code FREESHIP15 which is good until December 30, 2011 only.

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
