The Tagine Experiment

I can only be on my home computer 15 minutes at a time – the kids keep interrupting. So without belaboring this story, we received this tagine as a Christmas gift from some friends who frequent Morocco. It’s probably been years that we’ve been talking about tagines (both the cooking implement and the dish) and…

Booked for Kids: 15 Priceless Investments

Got this tag twice on probably the biggest social networking platform ever: “Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you.

Abot Langit

Inilalahok ko ang ilan sa mga paborito kong kuha ng sari-saring mga gusaling sa iba’t ibang sulok ng ating mundo.

Patawá

Tawanan ang kailangan natin ngayong napakainit ng panahon. Kuha ito sa Hidden Garden sa Vigan City, Ilocos. Isang topiary na hugis dinosaur ang nakatawag-pansin sa anak kong si M___. Tawang tawa siya dahil naka-shades ang dinosaur. Ang Hidden Garden sa Vigan ay nasa isang tagong purok, Magtanong sa mga tiga-roon kung papaano makarating doon. Kahit…

Sharing and Taking turns

Original post appears here. My mom just came back from the US and in true Filipino tradition, it was pasalubong time! One of her pasalubongs for the triplets was a toy, with emphasis on the article “a”. Doesn’t matter what toy, it was a toy. What followed was like watching an episode of The Three…
