      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 🙂

Ok naman daw yung ramen pero mas masarap pa rin daw yung beef wonton noodle soup sa Mr. Ube. Lol. Little one likes her noodles! #toddlerfood #toddlernarratives
Sunday, let's play! #toddlernarratives
Our little ball of energy. I wish we have more accessible public parks here in the Philippines. I abhor malls, it was just easier to visit when she was sooo small. Now that she's bigger, commercial spaces with grass, gardens, and outdoor spaces are our compromise. We make do with what we have and encourage play as much as we can. You know she had fun when her clothes are absolutely filthy after. Lol. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
A few snaps with the makeshift pull toy. Also, I rock the exhausted mom look with a giant coffee cup. Lol. Btw, Family Mart has cheap, good UCC brewed coffee. Their pastries are quite nice for their price point as well. Sunday treat while racing after the toddler. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
Never thought that her makeshift pull toy would create such a stir in the playground. Lol. #gamerchef mentioned earlier that the little one might want a pull toy, as he saw her playing with the ones at school. Those things are expensive though, so I thought of making her some from the toys she already have at home. I was looking for extra shoelaces when I remembered I have some ribbons stashed somewhere. Our place is small, so we took her to that playground again so she can play with it better. Turns out, lots of kids were so curious about the pull toy, several kids even tried to grab it from her. Such simple things can bring about joy. #gamerchef also thinks that most kids play with gadgets nowadays so when they see simple toys it is fascinating for them. Anyway, the little one enjoyed her pull toy and I hope we'll come up with more interesting toys in the future. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
People watching. #toddlernarratives
