THE DUTERTE I KNOW

I am from Luzon. I am not originally from Davao City so calling me bias would be unfair. I got married to a Davaoeno and was initially forced by my husband to migrate here. I have been peacefully living in this beautiful city for 10 years now. No regrets at all. Now, I am a Davaoeña by heart.

I feel sad every time I read memes and negative comments about Davao City and our Mayor. When he announced his candicacy, I never thought that the black propaganda would really go that far. His detractors are always on the lookout for something that they can use against him. They found a loophole and now, they made it into a national issue. And they placed alot of false add-ons too.

I only have good things to say about Mayor Duterte. Though I do not know him personally, my talks with ordinary people in this city and my observations on how he runs his city are enough proofs that he is a good leader. We love him so much that we always let him win-landslide- in all elections.

The night I heard “gunfires” in Dapitan (my funny experience)

It was a good night for us. We had an early dinner at Kamayan ni Manay, a seafood restaurant located at the Sunset Boulevard in Dapitan City. I posted my review of the restaurant HERE. Knowing that we have to leave Dapitan early the next day, we immediately headed back to our hotel, washed up then slept earlier than our usual sleeping time.

The Garfield in our Dictionary

A month ago, I caught my son holding a dictionary and intensely reading it. It was a surprise for me because he is more inclined into ready books with pictures or anything with colorful pages.

That dictionary day was followed by another, then another.  When he’s not doing anything, he’s at a corner or inside our bedroom reading the dictionary. That’s what I thought.

Then, the “AHA” moment came when he came to me giggling and shared to me what he read: A Garfield comics strip! So, technically, he was not reading the dictionary but was reading the comics strips found in it.

Homeschool year 2014-2015

Homeschool 2014-2015: Welcome back!

We will be starting our homeschooling year next week. I am now busy preparing for our materials as I decided to do independent homeschooling this year. Why independent? I will discuss it in another post.

When I homeschooled my son last year, I made a decision to homeschool him until middle school or maybe, until senior high school. Our home set-up now is beneficial to us since I do not need to wake up too early to prepare for my son’s schooling and my son need not be disrupted from his sleep very early in the morning.  We can eat breakfast together, cook together, go to the mall even on school days, eat anytime, watch a documentary after class and stop our class when my student is tired. And we are all are happy.
