    vera, naulit lang yung map parts, nasa geography and life sana yung gusto ko pang isama lessons about jars of ancient greece. if you are interested, you can check it out. ecai, if you have your own computer, you probably already saved geography of egypt kaya yun yung automatic na nag-oopen. i re-checked the post, geopgraphy of greece naman talaga yung nandit. try saving the file under another filename or another folder, if you have your own pc. im glad that you liked the part about the parthenon. it is always part of more or less traditional lectures about ancienct architecture. it is really fun teaching art to your studeents like you, especially if you are really interested. so now, im trying to post gods and goddesses and the parthenon. im here at burger king enjoying jr whopper, fries, coke and sundae. hahaha. the gods and goddesses are already uploaded, the problem is the parthenon. it still wont post. im crossing my fingers here. 🙂

    madami talagang stories about ancient greece. actually, every culture, if you would look at them closer, there is always something interesting to find out. all you need to do is look closer and pay attention. art is in every aspect our life, as long as we take the time to appreciate it 🙂

    @jeza, sana ok naman exam nyo kahit mejo nahirapan ata ang mga bs psych this time. though if i may say, nadalian naman ang mga customs… lets wait for the results shall we?

    @jean camille flattered naman ako. i have to admit i am having so much fun teaching you guys. humanities subject is really fun to teach but the students are the ones that really makes the class special. though there are some problematic students, the mere presence of really motivated students makes the job of a teacher so gratifying. i hope i will have the opportunity to teach you guys again. sana may subject pa kayo na matuturo ko ng ok… if there are any concerns at all please to let me know…

We turned the crib into a toddler bed a few days ago so we can use it again. We've been co-sleeping the past few months since I accidentally dropped her into her crib one time as she was getting too heavy for me. Another issue we had was her climbing, which I thought wouldn't happen until she's 3. With all the acrobatics going on, I thought it would be safer if she stayed with us for a while. Then, she just became more stable in climbing the bed and other things, I decided to just turn the crib into a toddler bed and see how that would go. She loved it. We hang out, play with the gang, and even read stories there. Tonight, I turned off the lamp and she led me there to sleep. Let's see how that goes. I'm afraid she'll fall off it. Also, what will happen when she wakes at 4-5am for her feeding? I really don't know. But fingers cross this experiment goes well. I am definitely not a fan of co-sleeping. We lasted over a year with her in her crib until the dropping/climbing incidents. Where did your baby/toddler sleep? #toddlernarratives
She is 18 months old today. Thought we'd celebrate with great food but it really didn't turn out as planned. That's life I guess. But she insisted on going up and down the stairs of the restaurant until she can manage it on her own. The 18 months flew by so fast. Here she is, little miss independent. #toddlernarratives
Petty Mommy revenge. I will eat Yan Yan while you nap! It is all mine! 90s me is pleased. Lol. #babynarratives
Omg!!! 1 year ago?!? #babynarratives
Agawan sa milk tea pagkatapos magpabakuna kontra sa polio. Natuto din po kami mag-jeep para tipid. Lakas! #milktea #babynarratives
This is the little one dancing to k-pop. Lol. Can anyone tell us what songs she was dancing to? We had a tough Friday. We went to public health unit to get an OPV. Then we walked to Rodic's for lunch. After that she rode her first Ikot jeep to go to school. After school, we tried to get a cab to get home, but after like 30 minutes, we really couldn't get one. There were very few cabs on campus and a grab ride would cost a fortune, so we decided to gamble with a jeepney ride. Little one fell asleep for most of it but I felt so bad for her, she looked so dishevelled after. As it was late and we don't have time to cook before she gets really hungry, we stopped by Centris to eat. She enjoyed fries at KFC. But #gamerchef forgot to get me a cookie from Family Mart. There were several events going on and she spent some time dancing to k-pop near Better Days. Being poor is no joke and we are still fortunate we can turn a horrible situation around. I could only shudder at the thought of having no extra money when you need to stop over for food. This is Friday night at the Metro. We are exhausted, but today is also a testament to how resilient babies could be. Go Leia! Dance! #babynarratives
