Paskong Pinoy Artwork

My daughter drew this huge drawing when she was in high school. It’s a typical house in the Philippines adorned with brightly colored lights and lantern for Christmas. The poster was displayed in her classroom.

This is N’s interpretation of a young caroler when she was in high school. Christmas caroling is part of the Philippine tradition in observing Christmas.

I think I’ve posted these pictures on this blog back in 2012.

Final Grade for First Term SY 2018-2019

My son, who is a first year multimedia student, sent me a copy of his final grade for the first term. I’m glad that he did his best to get good grades. He hope to exert more effort to reach his goal of achieving an overall grade of 3 to be included in the honor list. Those who get 3 are also entitled for a tuition fee discount. If my computation is correct, he got 2.95 or equivalent to 90.51 (?). Congrats, bunso. We’re proud of you. 

Parang kailan lang, I was posting your sister’s grade here. It’s your turn naman. Maraming tulog at sleepless nights pa, anak. We’ll always be here to support you.
