Little Star - Tell Your Children this Christmas Story

Last Friday, we just put up our Christmas tree. It's the same Christmas tree that we had last year. We're not buying another one since we think it's still okay. Besides, this has sentimental value. It was passed down to us by a good friend  who had moved on to another part of the world.

It's the same tree but ... it's not really the same Christmas tree. This time, my daughter, Kristel, and son, Yuan, helped put the Christmas tree ornaments. I think no ornament was put in the same place as it was last year. So, it doesn't really look exactly the same as last year's Christmas tree.

Janel was telling me to put it up earlier because they already received some gifts from their friends. I still haven't wrapped any gift. In fact, I have not really bought much. Anyway, there's still time to buy some more gifts here for all the kids here. I usually just shop for the children and for an exchange gift we do among our friends.

Janel has been saying "I love Christmas! It's Jesus' birthday, right mom?" I haven't seen them watch an animation about the birth of Jesus yet. But I would be on the look out for that one. I want them to watch it so that they would be reminded of what the season is really about. Christmas is not only about the gifts, the toys, the new clothes, the parties, the Christmas decors. It is really about JESUS.

Here's a story which you may want to tell your children to let them know about the true meaning of Christmas. It's entitled Little Star written by Anthony DeStefano read by Pat Boone.

What do you think about the story? Do you like it?

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
