oh, Bento! Cafe by Kat Ishizuka in Nuvali

A day before 2016 ended, my family visited Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I spotted this really cute cafe in Solenad mall and I couldn’t help but get excited when I saw the word BENTO. πŸ™‚ oh, Bento! Cafe By Kat Ishizuka just recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary. Kat Ishizuka, the owner, launched oh, Bento! out of her love for food and creativity.

Lingokids: English for Kids App Review

Lingokids – English for Kids English is perceived to be the universal language and here in the Philippines, it has become our second language.

I believe that having English literacy skills is a big advantage. My kids, especially my eldest, know how to entertain and interact with our relatives from abroad and can...
