Hear ye! Hear ye! The lady from Iloilo, Miss Sawsan Muhammad: As the judges said, she’s a complete package. And she chose Lea Salonga as her mentor… She’s so passionate! I mean, Lea. I’m following her! I mean, Sawsan. Yeah!
We stayed in Iloilo for close to one year. And it was a good year for my boys. They were very busy with activities that occupied their everyday life. Swimming, tennis, kumon. Playdates, weekend actions, planned and surprise visits from their daddy… it was exciting! Definitely, a lot of memories to remember with fondness. The day… Read More We Left Iloilo with a Bang!
There was a wish… and it started here!
One afternoon, kiddos and I had a road trip with the fishpond in Barotac Nuevo as our destination. I wanted them to see the “haw-as”, an Ilonggo dialect term for fish harvest. It was the day for harvesting the “bangrus” (milkfish). I was sure it would be an experience for them! We arrived at the sprawling 45-hectare property… Read More An After-Class Drive to Experience the “Haw-as”
ASAP 18 had a live show from the Iloilo Sports Complex during the Dinagyang Festival here in Iloilo. Of course, the television screens reflected a jam-packed venue:-).

So, I get away from them for an hour or two while they are in school… lol! My gym… Read More Dinagyang Night Life of the Kiddos
The annual revelry that rocks Iloilo every fourth week of January is over. Kiddos and I are lucky to have witnessed the fiesta that was. Kiddos even had some nights out… one thing I’ve realized though, my little boys were still not ready for the kind of street revelry that the Dinagyang offered. Nevertheless, they… Read More Dinagyang Scenes and Faces
There was the opening salvo and other ceremonies that signalled the start of Dinagyang. But, really, it’s the Pyrolympics at SM City that brought out many people from their homes and caused heavy traffic in the city. And filled up restaurants and bars! It’s a festive Iloilo we have in here. I brought the kiddos… Read More Pyrolympics: A Festive Start of the Dinagyang Fever
I have long wanted to write about Second-born’s “positive dental experience” (words borrowed from Lifesmile) but I only got to get a decent photo recently – read: without Secondborn’s photo:-). Lifesmiles Dental Care has two uber beautiful dentists, Dr. Pamela Ng-Yoo and Dr. Natalia Sanson. I got to know about the clinic because Pam –… Read More Second-born’s Positive Dental Experience
Perspective do play a dominant role in how one view objects and events around him. Back in college, I was more than happy to be in UP Miagao. It provided a free environment. “Free” can be viewed and interpreted in different ways, of course. Nothing else really mattered except that I was just living my… Read More Appreciating the Legacy of Miagao Church
