Champorado at Daing

Perfect combination for a rainy day. No shopping, no morning walk, no gardening outside. So, these would be my great buddies today.

I got one and dropped it to the boiling porridge.

Super hot and tasty champorado. But it will never be complete without its ultimate partner.

Kettle Korn

 This girl loves cheese and she's trying this Kettle Korn. It is a cheese flavored pop corn,  so that's the reason why she was attracted to it. I never thought she'd like it. Well, the attractive color made her wanting to grasp it.

It's a strange thing, she may have thought.

My Favorite Christmas Song

Mariah Carey

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You baby

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I don't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeers click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
Ooh baby
All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby to me...

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is...

All I want for Christmas is you... baby (repeat and fade)

All Souls Day

It's Sunday and I wanted to visit mom in the cemetery but because I am baby sitting our little Tara. I was able to do it very late already. It's almost evening when I went there. Her place was already very congested. I thought of looking for another place for her to place. In the private cemetery I guess. I tried to inquire about the plains and luckily got one on sale. But I can't move mom right away unless I will be able to pay the whole amount in full.

Bohol Quake that Affect Cebu

The want to submit my research project has been put aside due to the earthquake that hit Bohol and that affect Cebu too. My papers are ready but I do not have the courage to go to school because it has been slightly damaged too. Wish these after shocks will stop so that everything will be back to normal. I am afraid, kids are afraid, many are afraid of the continuous shaking of the ground. May God help us and save us from all dangers today and forever. Amen.

14 June 2013


Last school year was my first year in service at Don Andres Soriano National High School (a government school). The experience I had was quite different when I was still in Consolatrix College (a private sectarian school). I was about 8 years serving the school but moving on to another venture in life calls. March 31, 2009 was the effectivity of my resignation. I waited for about five months before I was hired. It was indeed a very memorable day for me, September 11, 2009. The day the HR have told me about the good news. On that day I also met the principal of the school where I will be serving. Briefing and orientation was done and I prepared all the things needed.

My first day was quite tough. My first observation was the students unlawful behavior. One section have really shown their unacceptable attitude. My first day was just a mere observation with a bit of my rules and regulations and classroom policies agreed by them.

I really couldn't help but compare this present situation from the past. From a sectarian school with respectful and friendly students to this undefined one. But I have no choice. I need to face the reality because this is what I dreamed of. To be in a government school.

Another adjustment I need to take is to wake up very early in the morning since I need to catch the bus at 6:30 A.M. of else I will be late. It takes 30 minutes from my place to the school. It is not that easy for me in the first few weeks since the usual was only an 8 minutes walk or 3 minutes ride by our motorcycle.

The picture above was taken in the bus on my way home. I was just struck by the print of this little guy's T-shirt that says , "It all starts with attitude."
