Its a beautiful Sunday! From our side of the world, just now while watching the news. And sipping coffee at the living room. We saw these two quails at the patio. Playing under our moringa tree. Looking for food! Simple things like this makes me happy. A reminder that we don't always need 💰 to… Continue reading What Makes You Happy?
Budget is a simple 5-letter word. In reality though it's complicated. Even to the adults. How much more to the kids. How do parents like me then introduce the idea of budgeting to the kids?

We… Continue reading Woodbury Fire on Superstition Wilderness (video)
(This is a guest post by Zoe, my younger daughter). I went scorpion hunting at night around the property! I never dreamed I would do this. Living in Manila, once in a while I saw scorpions but I was too scared of them. And I saw them at daytime. I can't believe that I went… Continue reading Summer Activity: Scorpion Hunting by Zoe
I used to admire the very neatly rolled silverware at the restaurants. Or at the University affairs where there was catering services. I had no idea how it was done. When I had the chance to learn it, it turned out that "it's so easy"!
