You’ve all seen the various Rizal Monuments all over the Philippines. At least one or two aside from the one in Rizal Park. You should check out this article. Also, Over Rizal: Monuments to a Hero, is an ongoing exhibit at the Vargas Museum, University of the Philippines, Diliman. It will run until August. Entrance is only P30. If you have time, you should visit it. It provides an entirely new narrative, not only on Rizal as a hero but also as a part of our everyday lives.

**had to edit as hyperlink is not working, i don’t know how to fix that.

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
