SCTEx

Nasubukan nyo na ba bumiyahe sa SCTEx? Sarap dun no? Bukod sa walang trapik, maganda pa ang tanawin.

SCTEx

Dito kami dumadaan pauwi sa bahay ng mga magulang ko, kahit na mas malayo kesa sa usual na dinadaanan at may dagdag na gastos sa toll fee, ok na din siguro yun kasiwalang mga pasaway na makakasalubong ;)

Pero alam  nyo ba na itong daan na ito ay ginagamit upang gawing mantsa laban kay NoyNoy Aquino?

Basahin nyo na lang yung link at kayo na ang “humusga”.

Bookstore Behavior

The kids love going to Power Books in TriNoma. Not only do they get to choose a book from a variety of choices but they get to read books there as well.

Having gone to that place, I noticed several things in the children’s books section that I feel I have to discuss with the children.

  • A child gets a book, looks at it and just drops it on the floor but parents/caregivers do not tell the child to pick it up and put it back where she/he got it from. Tsk, tsk.
  • There are children who will open up a sealed book and will just scan the pages and just leave the book where ever they want to.
  • There are small children who tend to make noise or just run around the place but are not told to stop.
  • Some moms/caregivers talk very loud with their children like they own the place and that there are no other people there. (I have a video of an incident where the mom was so angry at her daughter for misplacing their Power Books card. She was berating her daughter and the nannies, telling them they are @#$%^& for losing the card. Ugh!)

So with these things, I have taught the children some guidelines:

  • They can only read the books that have been already opened and NOT open those that are still sealed.
  • They can talk in a soft voice because others are reading and consider this place as a “library”. (Yeah, never mind if one of the people there is just reading about eczema treatment while sitting comfortably on the carpeted floor of the children’s books section)
  • Put back the books where they got it from, just like what they do at home.
  • Guard their space in case someone tries to sit while one got up to get/return a book :D
  • Be courteous.

Coco Jam and Peanut Butter

litratongpinoy

Matagal-tagal ko ding hinanap ito kaya laking tuwa ko nung matagpuan ko at matikmang muli: coco jam. Sa totoo lang, noong ako ay batang paslit, ayoko nito kasi mabaho, lalo na yung kending makunat na nakabalot sa puting papel, Yuck talaga! Amoy langis ng niyog.

Sige na nga, heto na ang paboritong almusal namin: tinapay na may manipis na palamang coco jam at/o peanut butter. Kelangan yung me buo-buong mani at mamantikang peanut butter ha (argh!)

Coco Jam, Peanut Butter and Bread for Breakfast

Bakit nga ba manipis? Kasi matamis ang coco jam at dapat manipis lang para di magsawa agad.

Siyempre di pwedeng walang kape.

Ayan, kumpleto na ang araw naming mag-asawa :)  Tsalap!

Coco jam, peanut butter and wheat bread are all from Pan de Manila. No, this is not a paid ad though a big white paper bag full of pandesal is very much welcome, lol.

Ang saya (kahit hindi ako nakababa diyan dahil ako ay may sprained ankle) ng mga bata nung kami ay huminto sa tabi ng daan upang sila ay makaranas ng paglalakad sa tubig  ng ilog!
