Yummy pancit, kare-kare, lumpia shanghai were served. There was also the roasted chicken but I did not eat it to avoid allergy.

New Way of Learning the Alphabet

Keona has started already learning to identify the letters in the alphabet. Grandma acted as her tutor and she can now identify the vowel letters. She could not identify yet the consonants since there are many. Now that she gets older, she become really fond of playing and she seems to get bored already with her flash cards.

Yesterday, my office mate introduced me a site which she used during the time when she was a tutor to preschool pupils. I look at the website and it's really nice. It's and it's very fitted for Keona.

When I reached home, after doing my online tasks, I let her look at the website and she was really glued on it. She follows the sounds and pronunciations and her interest is being kept because it's an audio-visual presentation. I hope Keona will learn the alphabet soon trough this website.

On Gift Giving

It has been always a practice in our department that we give something as a keepsake to whoever is celebrating a birthday. It can be anything simple or a bouquet of fresh flowers will do. With the skyrocketing prices of economic goods nowadays, I always look for promotional items so that I'll be able to save.

Two of my office mates are going to celebrate their birthdays next week. I'm looking for something I can give to them. I've seen promotional mugs online and I'm considering on giving it to one since one of the birthday celebrator loves collecting mugs.

I'm also thinking of buying anything and will just put personalized printing on it and give it to the other birthday celebrant. I got this idea from Amsterdam Printing and it's nice because it somehow gives a personal touch to my gift.

As Keona gets older, she is becoming more sociable as well. She accompanied Mom to PS bank yesterday and Mom told me that she keeps on saying Hi and Hello to the personnel in the bank. So the personnel were also very amused with her.

When it was time for them to go, she bid goodbye to the man who is a teller. Since the man was talking to the phone, he did not mind Keona waving him. Keona did not stop waving until the man responded her, waving as well.

Teaching Keona how to Save

As early as now, we are already teaching Keona how to save. It is said that the best thing to teach a child is when she is still young because their minds are blank tablets. They are easy to teach and whatever you teach them will be inculcated in their minds right away.

Being an only child and first grandchild in my hubby's side, she has the tendency to become spoiled specially with grandpa. Grandpa gives her whatever she wants but I balance it with teaching her the right values as early as now. I would tell her that she can't have everything she wants because I don't want her to grow up bratty.

Going back to savings, Keona loves to put on coins on her piggy bank. She would ask grannies for coins or sometimes from me and hubby. Mom told us to deposit her money from her piggy bank to the bank because there's a kiddie savings account in Metrobank where grandma used to work. We opened her piggy bank and grandma said she'll just add whatever Keona had saved so that it will reach to 500 pesos, the minimum amount required for the kiddie savings.

Food Trip at Mandarin

Mandarin Tea Garden is one of my fave restaurants here in my place. These photos were taken during our last visit to Keona's pediatrician. I ordered fish fillet while hubby had his beef wanton rice toppings.

Keona loves French fries very much so hubby bought French fries in a nearby McDonalds outlet and brought it to us.

Getting Ready for our Exit on Earth

Death is one of my most dreaded topics when I was younger. As time goes by and I believe I have matured as well, I started to realize death is inevitable and that it is one thing that everyone should be prepared of. We do not know when our call time is so we better prepare ourselves and leave good footprints here on earth. That's why, it is very important to have Burial Insurance.

Let's face it, death is also really costly. When my father died 4 years ago, we didn't have a hard time in terms of finances because my Mom had a seniors funeral insurance. That's what I admire most with my mother. She's very proactive.

My father was bed-ridden for 2 years. Having somebody needing medical attention can be really draining financially, so it is very important to have health resource for seniors to avoid being broke when illness come.
