If Dec 25 is Christmas, Is June 19 Rizalmas?

Christmas is around the corner!  Happiness!

i'm one of those who have graduated from associating the holidays with material things but if mah boys are excited, okay, no prob.  I'm excited for them as well.

I'm not really a religion person, but I really respect Jetut for all his promotion of peace, prosperity and love for all mankind. 

In my humble opinion, Jetut was one of the first NGO-ey activitists.  Some fundamentalist sh*t have just been inserted into "his apparent teachings" by self-serving people, making his oldest church divisive as hell.

I don't believe Jesus damns you to heaven or hell, so yes, I put him in the same regard as Jose Rizal.  This is why, yes, I celebrate Rizalmas on June 19s.  Like Jesus, Rizal also promoted peace, prosperity and love for all mankind.

I should have a Gandhimas as well.

Oo nga, di ko naisip yan! Mas famous si Jetut eh! Same values, different people.

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,
