My Artist

It has been awhile since I last posted art works of my daughter here. Kyla has been attending art classes under Teacher Lerma Julian of Life n Arts for the past 6 weeks. This is not new to her as she underwent training last year with her also for 6 sessions. But this time, she is receiving one on one instruction. She started with oil pastels, did self portrait using acrylic and now, she is doing oil painting.

I am blessed to see my daughter develop her passion for the arts, and also to have a mentor who believes in her talent. I pray that she will continue to use God’s gift in her life all for His glory!

Justice League, Movie Review

Blogpost written by Toby

We went to Vista Mall Cinemas last Thursday to watch Justice League. There was a lot of people watching. The Cinema was full of peeps! Boys, girls, women, men, young, and old were excitedly waiting for the movie to start.

The movie started off with the reality that Superman was dead the rising dirt at Batman v Superman was nothing. Batman formed a team to fight the evil alien invasion called Parademons with their leader Steppenwolf. Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg were all recruited by Batman. Superman completed the team.

I like the movie because it was action oriented. I’m a big fan of the DC universe. The movie was quite similar to the Justice League War. The actors fit their roles good. I just thought that the enemy was kinda boring. He was no match to the Justice League especially against Superman. I recommend you watch the movie and judge it for your self 🙂

Our Mystery Manila Experience

A few weeks back, we went to Mystery Manila in Ayala Malls the 30th.

It was our first time to try Mystery Manila. The first room we went to was Rebel Resistance. Since my children loves Star Wars, we were hoping to be able to solve the mystery and come out of the room in 1 hour. Sadly, we were not successful in decoding the morse code and fixing the map!

So we tried another room, this time, we tried the Mr. Moriarity room. It is a Sherlock Holmes type of mystery and we were so excited to be able to solve this mystery in less than one hour! Thankfully, we were successful this time.

Our overall experience was ok as the staff in Mystery Manila was quite helpful throughout the time we were there.

It is fun to do these kind of activities with the kids once in awhile as it allows them to use their brains and figure out problems in real world scenarios. Truly, learning takes place even while having fun.

Lego Stop Motion Movies

My son loves Lego. He started to collect last year and he makes stop motion movies using his collection. I allow my son to do these videos as they take patience, time and creativity.

Hopefully, as the years go by, he will continue to be diligent and creative.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is this weekend. How do you celebrate this day?

For our family, since it is a Sunday, we are all up early and we spend the entire day at church. For the past 7 years, we have been spending our Sundays in the church where my husband serves as the pastor. We attend worship service together as a family and eat together and wait for one another as each one does his or her ministry in the church.

When my children were smaller, they would usually create crafts or art works and give them to my husband. Though very simple, it is something that is important as I see that the children need to be able to write or draw how they are thankful for having a dad who provides for them, loves them and cares for them.  Through the years, we have seen how gracious God has been as He works in my husband’s life. We are grateful as a family to be walking alongside each other.

Now that our children are in the pre-teen and teen years, we celebrate father’s day by giving gifts. Gifts can be something unique for dad, an overnight stay in a hotel, coffee, clothes or accessories. We also make sure that we dine together and pray for him as we celebrate on this very special day. I know that being a parent is hard, and I am grateful to have my husband as my partner in raising our children together. For that, I am truly grateful and blessed!

This weekend, if you don’t know where to buy your husband or your father a gift, be sure to check out Gifts Less Ordinary and order something unique for him!
