Kanye! I Need Yew! (Who woulda thought??? Yikes)

Today is my son's field trip again. This year I was well and healthy, unlike last year when I had this mysterious ailment.

9 year old and I had fun the whole day at a marine theme park, and later, a rides theme park. Unlike last year's field trip when 9 year old kept waiting for me, this year is a year for clearer signals to let him go. He strayed around a lot on his own or with his friends. I'm okay, I'm not really the clingy mom type so I just let him be. He has also declared that this year is the last for field trip companions. Next year, he prefers to wing it on his own. (I think it's also the school norm for 4th graders to not have companions anymore.)

As we headed back to the metro by the end of the day, we settled comfortably in the bus (/coach) as we watched "Knowing" starring Nicholas Cage.

A little later, as the movie got more exciting.... a ringtone from a cellphone blared -->

"Romeo and Juliet is chenelyn de cordova, chuchubells chenebells pakisagot mo na..." "Love Story" by Taylor Swift. Very loud, quite distracting, really. As we watched Nicholas with open mouths, the song strained on. Why won't the young lady answer her phone so we can get on with our movie in peace????

Turns out the "ring tone" wasn't a ring at all, but a song actually being played from her portable whatever! What an inconsiderate jerk-ess (is there a feminine form for jerk?) this young lady was. I had 2 samsung headphones with me, i wanted to shove one up her ears and tie the cords of the second round the young woman's neck but restrained myself.

And because of the loud mp3 playing, up front, I saw a 50-ish dad also whip out his spanking new gadget... and I can see big musical notes flashing from the screen...

When I couldn't take it anymore, I reached across the row and poked the young lady "Excuse me, please shut that thing off. We're all watching the movie..." She complied willingly.

After a minute of enjoying Nicholas again, again:

"Romeo and Juliet is chenelyn de cordova, chuchubells chenebells chuchu chenez chukchak"

from ... guess who? the dad up front!

Turns out its his kid playing the damn gadget... but still.... KANYEEEEEEEEEE!!!! I needju! Please shut Taylor up!

Whoulda thought Kanye has some actual use?

Wow, that's pretty damn rude. I never would have imagined a situation where Kanye would be necessary but still, here it is.

Diliman Preparatory School QC Rocks

Summary: This is a School Review, based on our family's experience.

If you are looking for an excellent school in Quezon City for your elementary or high school children, Diliman Preparatory School along Commonwealth offers up-to-date competitive curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences and Reading. They also have excellent extra-curriculum activities that will help give your children a holistic education.




Last week, at my son's academic achievement awarding ceremony (he got the no.1 honor in class again, yay! Good job, son!), the CEO of the school talked to the parents about the achievements of the school for the year, and the changes for next year.

To be quick about it, this year, Diliman Preparatory School:
- started with the Singaporean Math curriculum
- used the very new Learning by Design Reading program (it's a research-based and assessment-based reading curriculum)
- I noticed they introduced Robotics this year
- There are more changes I approve of but I won't list …

Another birthday...

I can't believe my teen is now 15!

I saw my old post about Isiah's birthday in 2008 and wow... time does fly.


Well, Isiah's 15 today and things are still quite smooth sailing.

No honors in school this year, but that's alright.
He is passionate about his music more than ever. I admire that he regularly sets aside time to study and practice music on his own.
He is not as relationship-crazy or girl-crazy the past months, I wonder why.
He is totally into new-age yikies like meditation and chakras.
Seems like he is generally enjoying his school and friends.

I do bare my fangs for him mostly over his chore of washing the dishes, but that's about it. Yeah, boring.

But for this kind of boring, I am totally grateful. Yay.



Happy birthday son. Thank you for honoring my life with your presence. Love always,

You Know They've Grown Again When...

I've never done this to my kids, but some parents tell their kids "If you're bad, I will go away."

I knew my 10 year old has grown again when I told him before my night out, "If you're going to be so difficult, I will stay in and cancel." Watch me watch you the whole night.

Yeah, that pretty much got him behaved. I was able to go out. ;-)
