Checking for books.
If I remember it right, this is the second time K and I visited our local library since the school started in August. We couldn’t attend the Story Time for All Ages on Tuesday evenings because our bedtime is around 7:00 P.M. and the story time is scheduled at 6:30 P.M. The story time on Wednesdays and Fridays are for toddlers and are scheduled during school hours. So obviously we’re not able to go as well.
This afternoon we got the chance to go to the library because K wanted to borrow DVDs. We have a collection of kids’ movies on DVDs at home but it gets boring, you know. She enjoys being at the library. She reads a few books. Sometimes I read to her. What fascinated her most was searching for books and DVDs at the computer kiosk. When K started to try using the computer kiosk, she used a step stool to reach the keyboard. Now, she doesn’t have to use one anymore. She can reach the computer keyboard and she’s very happy about that. This way K will know if her favorite books like Pete the Cat and Hippoposites and DVDs like Kubo and My Neighbor Totoro are IN or OUT. The library is one of the places to take your children for learning and reading. There are activities and special events for kids’ according to age and interest that local libraries organize all the time.
I need to allot more library time on the weekends. As for the story time, we will catch up on that in the summer. We always participate in the Summer Reading Club.

Yay! We are back from l-o-n-g vacation. Yup! Two months vacation is quite long enough, don’t you think? Very happy that we had the opportunity to go on vacations and visit families and friends on the other side of the world. This is the the second time my darling daughter K went on vacation to the Philippines, but this time on me and her went. Daddy was a having a big project at work that’s why he wasn’t able to go. Of course, it could have been way more enjoyable if he was with us.
Fissan Prickly Heat Powder
Although the weather in the Philippines was super hot and super humid-because it was hot season (summertime)- was able to adjust to the warm environment. The first couple of weeks (we arrived March 22nd), was pretty hard because K had prickly heat rash. So I bought my favorite heat rash powder called Fissan. It works wonders on prickly heat. I apply the Fissan powder on the affected skin after bath day and night. Somehow Fissan prickly heat powder soothed K’s discomfort because of the heat rash. K felt bored and felt a little awkward with my parents. She even told me that she wanted to go back home (Texas). She missed her daddy, the house, her toys, and her bedroom. But as soon as my nieces and nephews came over and got to talk and play with her, she was fine. And we talked to daddy almost every day via Skype.
It is very amazing how the communication technology has improved through the years. Eight years ago, we did not have an Internet access because my parents do not have computers and smartphones. We were only able to communicate through prepaid cellphone once a week. Today, we can chat any time we want to using our smartphones. They don’t have a monthly Internet subscription so they only buy Internet credits from a telecom company, where they bought the sim card from, to be loaded in their phone for about $1.07 and register the credits to be able to use the Internet for three days. Sometimes the signal is poor so there are times credits are wasted. That’s disappointing and frustrating.
Anyway, glad we’re back to our home sweet home in Texas. Looking forward to our future vacation to the Philippines in two years.
