Celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ 2013

Hi everyone! Belated Merry Christmas and advance Happy New Year!! How was your Christmas eve?! Well, me and my family celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ with a bang! Every Christmas eve is memorable and unforgettable because we used to celebrate His birth like it’s his first Birthday though I must admit that we’re kinda sad this year because Mommy (my lola) and Tito Aaron weren’t here to celebrate with us. But I couldn’t be any happier because I know for the fact that they are celebrating this wonderful day together with our Lord God in heaven, right?! So there’s no reason at all to be sad. 😉

KMS Christmas Shopping at Divisoria

Today I am sharing my first Christmas shopping experience at Divisoria. I went there two weeks ago together with my MIL and my BIL, Kuya Francis. Actually, this was an impromptu trip and I don’t usually go to Divi during peak season because I know that the place is really crowded most especially during this Christmas season. Surprisingly, it’s not as crowded as I thought when we braved the shopping capital of the Philippines, Divisoria. Maybe because we went there during weekdays? I don’t know. It’s kinda weird but I was really surprised and happy because it was my first time to go Christmas shopping at Divi. We went there during lunch time and the place was surprisingly not crowded (as it should be) and the traffic was still tolerable.

I am not just sure if the situation these coming days are still the same because Christmas is fast approaching and Filipino loves cramming, right? Nevertheless, you still have time to go Christmas shopping coz there’s still 10 more days to go before Christmas.

Alright, so let’s move on now with my Christmas loots from Divi and I hope you get some Christmas shopping idea from it. I know you’ve been all waiting for this so here it is! 🙂

Childrens Book Review: Discover English with Ben and Bella

From birth on, children are constantly learning. Like tiny scientist they listen and observe closely and experiment daily with the world around them. That’s the natural way of kids learning process. They are thirsty for new knowledge and enlessly curious and they acquire their language by being exposed to it- by hearing and mimicking it and by playing and living in it.

20131209-144106.jpg

Discover English with Ben and Bella comes in different topics that our child would be most interested in: the farm, the zoo, the circus, transportation, going shopping, special day at the beach or at the picnic. We chosed the Going Places or trasportation set for Cyler because he is a sucker of anything with wheels.

Cyler’s Trip at Museo Pambata

Howdy! As promise, here’s my post about our impromptu tour at Museong Pambata last Sunday. Cyler had a blast discovering and exploring this wonderful place. And glad to say that our buchukoy (aka Cyler) can already recognize most of the things/objects that we saw inside the museum, well except those old ones like the typewriter and abacus. But the old ones are the one that he really liked the most in the museum. Talk about nerd stuff you know. Oh he’s indeed a baby no more, right?!

Btw, Museo Pambata (Children’s Museum) is the Philippines first and only hands on discovery museum for children. And it is located at Ermita, Manila and it’s just beside the US embassy along Roxas Blvd.

Alright, I’ll stop talking now and let the photos do the talking instead. 🙂
