Visit to D'Souza Resort & Events Venue in Marikina

I got quite busy this month with my writing projects that I almost forgot to write about our visit to D'Souza Resort & Events Venue in Marikina.

(If you're looking for a resort with private pool and rooms for rent, or a place to celebrate special events in the Marikina area, please check out D'Souza Resort & Events Venue).

It was about a month ago when we visited D'Souza Resort. We did not go there to swim or attend an event. It was just a casual visit. The owners, Sabee and Nory D'Souza, were my husband's friends from Dubai. They were here for a short vacation and we went there just to see them and chat with them.

Our two girls came with us, too. They were supposed to be in school but classes were suspended because of a typhoon. The girls wished they could go swimming, too bad the weather was not cooperative. We just told them we will come back next time to rent the place and swim.

We arrived there at about 12 noon and my husband was glad to exchange stories with Sabee. We learned some of the stories behind their purchase of the private pool resort property (formerly called Plaza del Sol) and how they renovated the place. They replaced the entire pool tiles and upgraded the bathrooms. And when we were there, they were still installing some more ceiling fans.

We had a simple lunch together but the kids loved it. We had pork sinigang and adobo, which were cooked perfectly.

Now, I would like to share a few more pictures of the resort. There is a pool, a jacuzzi, a slide, grilling and dining area and videoke for rent in the pool area. The pool is not that big but it is 3, 4 & 5 ft deep, hence catering to both kids and adults. This private pool is not open to per person rates, but per group rates. You can see the rates at the end of this post.

The place where we ate our lunch is the area for holding events like birthday parties, debuts, anniversaries, weddings and other special events. It can accommodate up to 150 persons. I don't have pictures of the decorated events place but if you are interested in renting the place, you can see some photos and reviews in the D'Souza Resort & Events Facebook page.

D'Souza Resort also has 5 guest rooms for rent. We didn't see the rooms personally but the rooms have varying sizes and amenities.

This is nice and affordable! Maganda dito kung chip-in2x sa bayad ng rent e dapat 50 pax na rin talaga para makamura sa reservation. hehe. Medyo lugi kung kaunti lang ang pupunta. hehe. Marikina is not that far from us so who knows, we might consider this place for any future events.

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.

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
