    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. 🙂

    @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…

Our little Leia... #babynarratives
While listening to Les Miserables. Start them young, there is a world yet to be won. Someday the revolution will come.
I baked apple bread and it tasted wonderful. There's nowhere to buy bread now, I only hope I have enough stock of flour. Come to think of it, it should've been the first on my list. I used spelt flour here, I prefer using alternative flours that have a higher protein content, for the little one. #baking
Leia's plate. We try to eat as healthy as we can, for as long as we can. We can't say for sure what the future holds, but we try to keep going for the little one. We'll just make do if we run out of money or access to fresh food. For now, its as if the world is not in chaos. I suppose for the little one, it really is not. Both her parents are here and she sees her extended family more than she ever did. So, I guess that's it. I just know she misses school because she tells me the names of her classmates and teacher. Having a child in times of crises is really complicated.
Before we found out that we can't even get things delivered now, we were in a happy zone with the spices. We usually get random spices when we travel and move around. But we haven't moved around much since the baby and almost not at all since the beginning of this year. It finally caught up on the spice stash. I know this is a luxury right now, but food needs herbs and spices for flavor! Toddler loves them too. We finally found a supplier but we had to "quarantine" the spices for 24 hours first. The spice rack was replenished somewhat, the smell was intoxicating, and the colors vibrant. I wanted to take photos but little one woke up from her nap and I had to clear the cayenne before she gets to it. If only I can send out the smell of this, so amazing. Anyway, I still need to find suppliers to get us by. We have no quarantine pass and we haven't accessed our atms in like 3 weeks. Online ordering was our lifeline but it is congested now. Sigh. We shall survive to experience better days again. For spices, contact @theurbanspices . They are great to talk to and they have quality products!
Outdoor play while the parents are busy having their afternoon tea. They can really invent their own game at this point. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
