Mom’s( and Dad’s,too) on Computer

I was browsing the postings on my facebook when I came across this poem/song. This is an awakening to parents, like me, who would prioritize status updates, chats, online games (candy crush,etc) and blogging, instead of our children. Sometimes, we spend more time online that we tend to neglect our responsibilities as parents. Then, all of a sudden, we realize, they are so grown up and they copied the lifestyle that we showed to them.

I hope this poem will speak to you as it did to me.

The Lowly Okra

okraMy mother is a pure blooded Ilokana and eating vegetables is something that she passed on to us. Pinakbet and Dinengdeng are two famous ilokano dishes and having them on our table is considered a feast.

Of all the ingredients found in both dishes, its the okra or the lady finger that I liked the most. But I only eat it without the seeds.I like it boiled or grilled then dip it in bagoong or fish paste.

My grandfather, Lolo Rico, once told me that okra is the king of vegetables. He even told me that it is the secret food of the Ilokanos that’s why they have long lives. In fairness, my grandfather just passed away last month at the age of 84 and my grandmother, also in her 80’s, is still alive and walking. 🙂

Homeschool or Regular School?

After Josh finished his 3rd grade at Bridges Academy in Tagum City and when we decided to stay in Davao City for now due to our work as real estate brokers, I was once again faced with the dilemma of finding the right school for him . Bridges Academy is a progressive school and enrolling him in a “traditional” school would mean a major adjustment for him. Though we found some progressive schools in Davao City, we thought that the tuition fees were too much.
