Merry ang Pasko Dahil Kay Kristo

Hi everyone!

I just want to greet all of you a Merry Christmas!

I know that many people feel that Christmas this year is just not the same. I do since we really didn't get the chance to do the usual things as in the past years. We didn't go to our parent's house or be with other family and friends this year. No strolling in the mall or eating out with my children as some of them are still below the age limit allowed to go inside the malls or anywhere else. 

As I reflect on the current circumstances, it's really better to just stay home. It feels safer and keeps away the worry that the virus will creep up on you or your family. It's also less expensive as going out usually means spending on something like food or items you see displayed in shops. 

Also, this time makes you really think about what is Christmas really about. Christmas is not about the decors, the carols, the gifts, the delicious meals, or the reunions, although those things aren't bad at all. 

Christmas is about remembering the love and grace of God when He gave us Jesus, the Savior who later died and rose again so that we can be free from sin and death. Truly, Jesus is the greatest gift that anyone who truly believes can receive.

I pray that your life will be filled with the love, joy, peace and hope that Jesus Christ gives to everyone who believes in Him and what He has done. 

Indeed, Christmas continues to be merry because of Christ (merry and Pasko dahil kay Kristo). 

Have a blessed Christmas!

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
