SMNE Celebrates Chinese New Year with The Chan Lim Family of Artists

To officially mark the start of the Chinese New Year, SM City North EDSA honored The Chan Lim Family of Artists through a commemorative event — an afternoon of exquisite Chinese culture celebration last Sunday, January 15. I was one of the bloggers who got invited to the event and was surprised that they would be conducting a Chinese Brush Painting workshop for the guests. I’m a first-timer so I couldn’t help but feel both excited and nervous when I saw the painting supplies they have prepared for us.

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. Some Filipino families even use English as their main language. As a bilingual family, my kids are learning two languages at a time. My eldest attended a progressive preschool for 2 years so he’s comfortable conversing in English. At home, he communicates in both Tagalog and English. 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...

How to Get the Most Out of a Tradesman

Hiring a tradesman is going to result in far superior workmanship than you would ever be able to attain on your own, even as an avid DIY specialist. With this in mind, not every tradesman is qualified to do the particular job you want to hire them to do. So, who do you hire and how do you get the most out of the one you choose to hire for a particular job? Consider their Experience or Expertise If you need electrical wiring work, you aren’t going to hire a tradesman who specialises in paint jobs, and vice-versa. When time...

Pokémon To-Go: Pikachu Bento Box

When Pokémon Go was officially launched here in PH, me and my family joined the craze and soon after, my eldest started bugging me to make a Pokémon bento box. And so I gave in, but only 2 weeks after his request because I couldn’t quite imagine how I can make a decent Pokémon bento. But I did it, and I’m glad that I took up the challenge. I’ve only done a few charaben before and I used bread for the most of them. This time for my Pokémon bento I also used white bread as my main because I...
