The Oblation, one of the most famous artworks in UP, was made by Guillermo Tolentino. Contrary to popular belief, FPJ’s father was not the model for the statue. Anastacio Caedo was the model for its muscular physique, while Caedo’s brother-in-law, Virgilio Raymundo, was the model for its height and proportion.

If I dress up, will we go out? #toddlernarratives
Quarantine life with a toddler. She's running out of pages in her sketchbook. #toddlerplay #toddlernarratives
Noodle soup for Sunday evening. I hope for a bit of rainfall... Please...
I was excited to see what happened to the plants after yesterday's rain. After the typhoon, some plants sprouted. It was the same this time. Let me know of your thoughts! I'm just doing what I can with the resources we have on hand. I have not started with a compost yet, because I do not have an unused pail with a cover. (1) Tomatoes sprouted! At least I think these are tomatoes. I specifically remember putting them there and hoping for the best. Now here they are. (2) Honeydew melon are starting to sprout as well. I did not expect this and I honestly don't know what to do with them. Can they grow in a big pot? We just have honeydew melon and I took a shot by placing the seeds on soil. Now here they are. (3&4) I don't know if these are eggplants. They are growing where I placed the green bell peppers and eggplant seeds. But the bell pepper seedlings have pointed leaves, these are round. Or they could be a random plant that grows around here. Let me know if you have any idea. I am still drying some overripe eggplants. I don't really know how to propagate them as I do not have access to prepared seeds.
One year and one month later, she still loves these blocks! I guess they were right about open-ended toys? We can't rotate toys as Montessori suggested because we don't have the space. So we just arranged the toys that she does have in a low shelf. She rotates her toys herself, as she choses which toys to play with. Some toys stay ignored for days or weeks before being picked up again. We tried not to buy too much, though sometimes it still gets out of hand. Such is life with a toddler I suppose. Quarantine life means we make some new toys ourselves using paper, paper towel rolls, and random house objects. She still likes them. Oh, toddlers. #toddlerplay #toddlernarratives
Yellow plate. Tortilla de patatas with butter turmeric brown rice. Still in quarantine but grateful for the rain, at least my headache is now subsiding.
