      thanks a lot po sa mga ginawa nyo samin. i hope po na hindi kayo magsawa. honestly ma’am, medyo nahihirapan po akong tanggapin yung mga philosophical knowledge na tinuturo nyo samen dahil taliwas po yun sa mga paniniwala ko pero salamat pa rin po kasi mas marami akong naiintindiha.

    @ecai, you can do this yourself, its easy with torrent. but if you have no seeds in torrent and you are looking for a relatively old book, you can try project gutenburg. they have a very good collection of books in .txt or .pdf format. its a reliable site, my friend was once a volunteer editor for project gutenburg.

    @ella, you can do anything if you try it. just try to read it. it may seem difficult at first, but you will understand. and hopefully, it will be fun. learning is fun, if you make it so. and you should discover the wonderful world of the written word. 🙂

    @liard, ganito kasi yan, kakaiba man ang natuturo ko, dapat hindi hihina ang paniniwala mo. dapat, tingnan mo mabuti at intindihing mabuti ang pinaniniwalaan mo at kunin ang natututuhan sa philosophy para mapalakas lalo ang mga paniniwala. at dun mo masasabi na hindi bulag ang mga paniniwala mo. kahit ano pa ang ihadlang at iharap sa paniniwala mo, yun parin ang paniniwala mo, at yun ang papanindigan mo. sana madami kayong matutuhan, kahit magulo 🙂

Dear Baby, if you are anything like me, patience is not one of your virtues. But you need to stay put for a couple of weeks. We're gonna put our feet up and take it easy. Keep on dancing, just don't push down. Lol. For now, we had a great dinner at our favorite restaurant. Xoxo. #dinner #moment #baby Department baby shower. And we forgot to take more photos, we're missing Louise and Yayo! It was fun and I am grateful. Getting there, whew. #babyshower #artstud #das Baby shower! We've been friends for more than two decades, incredible. Love you girls! #babyshower #highschool We're starting to build the baby library, challenging for sure. We want a mix of classics, contemporary, and adventures. Suggestions are most welcome, so are gifts. Though I realized that screening baby books is not easy. And buying them is not cheap, lol. But it is incredibly fun. I hope she gains the love of reading that will open up worlds and lives beyond her own. #books #readings Friday's with Mom and Ian. She came to see the new place. #lunch #mom The butter to my bread, the breath to my life. Happy birthday #gamerchef! We shall taste the world together! #birthday
