      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 🙂

Life with a toddler, without so many words... #toddlerplay #toddlernarratives
Motherhood is transformative. I'd rather see myself through the lenses of transformation, rather than of loss. I do miss the old days at times. I find it helpful to do something for myself that would not benefit the little one in any way. In the morning, it is coffee. Making Vietnamese-style coffee quietly while chaos ensues is meditative. The slowly dripping coffee on our Bat Trang mugs, a gift from Hanoi, is music. Drinking the coffee while its hot, now that can be a challenge. Lol. #coffee
Messy playtime is good playtime. Lol. Little one seems to enjoy her made-to-order mattress. Should've done that a long time ago, as she likes the feel of our big bed. (Uratex can do that for you, fyi.) She's been using a toddler bed ever since she managed to climb the crib set-up. She's not even 2 yet. We also retired her play fence, as we have to keep it open anyway. We've re-arranged our place and now she has her place. Her bed transitions into her play place, not pictured are her cabinet and book shelf. It is often chaotic, even if we tried to curate her toys as much as we could. Our favorites are her wooden toys and actual kitchen things that she uses as toys. Of course her mega blocks and duplo sets are great as well, but that means there are blocks everywhere. It is plastic, but good quality ones. Her coloring area is not being used as much as it used to be, but that is how she is, there are seasons to her toys. Then she also has her "friends" and random knick knacks and homemade toys. We didn't buy her any battery-operated ones, we opted for wooden, open-ended, and pretend-play toys. Each day is different, only chaos is constant. At least now, she's asleep. For today, and always, I also need sleep. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
Snapshots while resting from market shopping... There's a whole world outside of the grocery store. Its important to know where food comes from. #toddlernarratives
Nakakapagod naman mamalengke... Tapos ipapamigay lang ni Mommy yung saging sa mga bata. Share daw at empathy. Ano ba yun? Pahingi na nga lang ng juice. Dami dala bag ni Mommy, no to plastic daw. Buti mababait manininda. Sabay bili naman ng juice, weh, dapat my dala siyang lalagyan. Mommy talaga oh... #toddlernarratives
