Joining the Daloy Dunong Plant Tour by Maynilad was quite an eye-opener for me. If I will be asked, I think every customer of Maynilad should be able to request a tour like the one we had, not only to appreciate Maynilad’s service but also to increase awareness on how we can all help protect our water supply and resources. Let me tell you a quick recap of how our Daloy Dunong Tour went on and I hope that at the end of the post, you’ll also have the same realizations I had.

When I was invited to witness this specific school-chair turn over event, I immediately agreed. Why? First, I get to see Quezon City Hall again which was one of my favorite “tambay” places when I was in high school. The QC Public Library was the nearest library we could visit way back then when we have research projects when I was studying at Quezon City Science High School. View of the Quezon City Hall Statue of Manuel L Quezon Places of Worship in Quezon City Second reason was that I get to see Mayor Herbert Bautista. I’ve...

It’s heartbreaking to know that despite the struggle of many Filipino parents to provide for their families, there is still almost 4-million Filipino children who are classified as out-of-school youth. Majority of us can feel how maintaining a decent financial status these days is getting more and more difficult. In my daughter’s private school alone, many of her classmates have opted to choose to go to public schools because of the steep tuition fee. And I am not putting public schools in a negative light in here, not that...

If you have kids who are still studying in grade level, story telling contests may be part of your child’s annual calendar activities. This is an activity which we look forward, not so much because of the competitive aspect, but because we look forward on seeing the kids focus, learn a new piece and be able to practice being not afraid on stage. It’s a good time to build self confidence and speaking skills. I personally believe that people who have self-confidence and good abilities to speak have an edge when it comes to being...

Hubby and I made a quick visit recently to Philippine Science High School to submit my daughter’s application for their qualifying exam. This year 2015, the exam will be on October 3 but before that, you need to submit the requirements, pay a small fee and return back to get the final examination permit. It was our first time to see Philippine Science High School and we took the opportunity to make a quick trip around the campus. We didn’t plan it ok? We were just curious and we thought, since we were already there, why not...

January is a wonderful month to get in touch with nature. We are lucky to be able to live in a home where the front yard is full of greens, thanks to my husband who worked hard on maintaining our mini garden. Last month, we receive a gift which was enjoyed very much by my youngest daughter, who by the way, is the most interested in nature. She loves animals and plants. Actually, she was the one who encouraged us to adopt a pet puppy which is now already 2 years old. The Explore Sandbox had numerous activities which fostered multiple intelligence....

It was our first invite for a book launch and I was glad that it became an exciting and fruitful one not only for me but especially for my daughters.  Last November 30, Bianca Gonzales visited National Book Store inside Trinoma to introduce and sign copies of her book entitled Paano Ba’To?!. How To Survive Growing Up. Bianca was super early and she was already signing books when we came to the venue. Mind you, the call time was 2:00pm but when we came there by 2:05, she had already signed many of the books. I admit I underestimated...

If you haven’t started shopping for your child’s school shoes for any reason, start thinking twice. The crowd is getting thicker and thicker in shopping malls and a few days more, it’s either you will be buying something you don’t like because your preferred shoes are already out of stock or you just like to end your suffering that you pick...
