This is my 11-year-old daughter Chloe in her 60's attire. She wore this on their dance number during their school's 28th Foundation Day held last September 6, 2014.
My daughter, who is in 5th grade, danced the Dance Hits of the 60's together with her batch-mates. The audience, myself included, had a great time watching their dance as well as the other levels' presentation because it brought us back to the past. I've realized I love the style of the 60's because they look neat and fashionable. Though their music that time sounds old to us right now, I seem to think theirs was way cooler. Anyways, just sharing to you the picture of my daughter and the story behind her costume :-)

Samsung launches Curved Ultra High-Definition (UHD) TV and 2014 product lineup
“This year will be a big year for entertainment”, says Chung Lyong Lee, Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO) President and Managing Director. The leader in innovation and design once again outdoes itself in its latest TV model release: World’s First Curved Ultra High-Definition (UHD) TV. This newest lineup from Samsung is geared towards fulfilling the needs and desires of Filipino viewers.
The Samsung Curved UHD TV boasts of crisp picture quality, 4x more powerful that of a FHD screen, and a change in perspective that makes images appear larger and true-to-life. As compared to flat screen TVs, this special screen allows for a more realistic viewing experience even from different angles—ensuring that everyone gets the best seat in the house. The combination of the curved screen and Samsung Proprietary Auto Depth Enhancer UHD technology automatically adjusts contrast for a greater sense of depth and gives a 3D-like effect without requiring glasses. Imagine seeing images coming to life right in front of you in spectacular color, clarity and detail that only Samsung can give. Amazing, isn’t it? Even the color is further enhanced using the PurColor technology that reproduces color for even more detailed expression.
In addition to this, Samsung makes sure that the usage is a breeze with its user-friendly operating system! This Curved UHD TV is easy, fast, and fun to use with its multi-link screen feature that allows dual screens to process separate tasks that operate alongside each other. Side-by-side enjoyment of multiple entertainment portals (think comparing the trailer on YouTube.com vis-à-vis its original cut on Bluray) is now made possible by Samsung’s innovative TV line. Users need not to worry about cutting down on speed performance thanks to the upgraded Quad Core processor, the Quad Core Plus, which delivers quicker loading and navigation through tasks and commands. Browse through the panels for apps, multimedia content, NewsOn features and more with the swift speed of the Samsung SMART TV. The Curved UHD SMART TV is available in 78-inches, 65-inches, and 55-inches in all Samsung outlets nationwide.
2014 Product Lineup: Built for the Philippine Market
Aside from the curved UHD TV, Samsung has tailored this year’s product lineup with the Philippine market in mind. Some of the features worth highlighting on are the internet capability of the TVs, perfect for our social media and internet-savvy Filipino users, and the Family TV feature, that lets family members maximize the Samsung experience with Screen Capture and Sound capture to instantly catalogue their favorite moments on screen for personal viewing in the future. Plus, all these saved images and information are automatically saved in your USB for easy storage and access. What a great convenience! There’s also, Soccer Mode, designed specifically for a more enjoyable sports-watching experience with optimized picture and sound quality. Soccer fans can now zoom in, auto and manual highlight, and record moments throughout the game for a more interactive and closer look at their favorite sport. And for those hungry for local content, there is Clickplay, (the only Philippine Video-On-Demand App with Hollywood content,) and NewsOn page powered by Yahoo PH.
Samsung’s new audio products keep Life and Design in tune

We have keyboard at home but it's not really made of high quality. My 11-year-old daughter is usually the one playing it and she asked one time if we can upgrade the keyboard. My husband and I were planning to replace it soon if our budget permits. We have been browsing thru the net and we found this site: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/keyboards-midi/novation-ultranova-synthesizer. The Novation ultranova synthesizer is just perfect for my daughter and I hope this is available in our country. Anyway, if you are also interested to buy this item, you can visit their site. The price is affordable so you might want to get it while it's still on sale!

Rainy days are here once again. Summer's finally over and school days began. My eldest child's 1st day of school will be on June 13 - Friday. I actually find it weird why their school starts on a Friday. However, my children will be absent on Friday, and Monday the following week because we will have our late summer vacation. I already asked permission from their teachers but the absences are not yet alarming because it's just the first day of school. I guess they will not even have a regular class yet.
We will be leaving by plane tomorrow. We are going to Manila and stay in my brother's house. I really pray that the weather will be kind to us. I also pray for our safe travel coz I'm usually jittery every time we ride on a plane. Anyhoo, I'm looking forward for a good vacation. I thought I deserved a break after all the obstacles I've been facing lately.
So, this is just it for the moment. Be posting some pics soon. Hey, pray for us, too! ;-)

Few more days and it's already June. Wow, indeed time flies so fast. I already enrolled my eldest child but I might enroll my youngest later this week. I wish school in here are not that expensive. They will really make any parent broke. Good thing I have only 2 kids but how about those having 5 kids. No wonder others enrolled their children in public school. I would, too, if only the public school have good standards. Unfortunately, only few offers quality education that's why no matter how expensive, some parents still choose to send their kids to private schools...sad but true..sigh..
Aside from a very expensive tuition fees, there are books that costs a lot. I hope the books are good because oftentimes I found wrong grammar or wrong answer if I happen to read it. We are sending our kids to good schools and I expect that my kids receive quality education, too. But of course it also depends on the school's system and the teacher. Yes, teachers play an important part in the students' education. Anyways, I wish my kids, the schools and the teachers the best of luck for this coming school year.

If I could turn back time, I would have agreed with my dad to buy myself a class ring when I graduated from a college. I thought at that time it was not necessary. My dad even offered to pay but told him instead to keep it because I don't need it. But when time flies, I soon realized that it might be a good souvenir to keep.
Anyways, that was a long time ago and if by any chance some of you out there are thinking of getting one for yourself then go ahead. You can even find best selection of class rings online for a low price. Lucky for the new graduates these days because you can personalize your class ring or style it your way!

My little girl Zoe finished her Toddler year last March 27, 2014. We all attended to her recognition day and was so proud of her progress. She got a medal for Character Excellence in her school and also got a Best in Math ribbon.
Her behavior is quite a challenge but I thanked her teachers for being patient with her and tried to bring out the best in her. Despite everything, I'll always be there to support my daughter. Just like her sister, Zoe is also my pride and joy. I will never stop loving my kids, never stop supporting them and be there always for them.
Next school year Zoe will be enrolled in Nursery. Although quite worried, I am also looking forward to take a new journey with my daughter. But I'd like to entrust all my worries and concerns to the Lord. I believe she will be alright and be able to face the challenges in life...
Proud Mommy Moment :-)

I posted this in my other blog and I'm posting this here also. This is my daughter's computer MS Paint of Elsa. She tried to copy the original but didn't cut and paste but the result was almost the same. But if you look closely, there's obviously a difference. But for a 10 year-old to do this, I guess that's quite pretty amazing, huh. She only copied the background but Elsa's already her doing.
Painting the computer is one of her hobbies. She won twice already at school for MS computer painting. I'm glad she's good in this aspect and I'm just here to support her hobbies. But I told her not to spend a lot of time on the computer to protect her eyes. So, what do you think of my daughter's drawing?
