Time flies by so fast. And before you realize it- it’s now the end of another year and another decade. I’ve been slacking off from writing and updating my blog. I kinda admit it was hard to start writing again… But to update i must.
I would like to share some pictures from October to December 2009:
Boo! We all know the ways of The Craft. Paper Crafts that is. These were the Halloween decors at my workplace! Courtesy of T. Ami and our students…
All Souls Day 2009. We visited mom at the memorial park. It rained that night and the wind was strong – blowing out the candles that we set up. And we had to take shelter under tarp canopies left by other picnickers. Good thing the rain didn’t last too long…Afterwards, we went home and watched a horror movie. Chillingly good fun!
I was there! Educators and parents gathered at the SpED Expo held in Glorietta, Makati on Dec. 1, 2009. Our school did a talk too about reading and learning difficulties.
Kids works and some of our teaching materials on display at the SpEd Expo in Makati.
Can you spell syzygy? Friends and I watched this superb musical at the RCBC last Dec. 6, 2009. Helluva good time, talented cast and with a surprise marriage proposal at the end of the play from one of the actors to his girlfriend.
Next Post: more holiday pix from December to January… Yes, folks. I’m cramming it all in a few number of posts as much as possible. That’s what i get for slacking off. Har-har! 🙂

Even after 26 years, the young and old are still dancing (or know the steps to) michael j’s ‘thriller.’ Many US cities are holding ‘thriller’ dance marathons, or attempting to break the record for the largest number of people dancing to this global pop phenomenal hit. This craze had a major resurgence in popularity and appeal due largely in part to the highly-viewed dance routine of the Cebu prisoners that was first posted in youtube in July of last year.
Even the yahoo logo is in on it for sheer fun! … Click on the Yahoo site and watch the cartoon zombies do the Thriller dance. They even have a Jack o’ Lantern (the middle guy below) who is unmistakably wearing what looks like a Cebuano inmate’s orange prison uniform!…
When you go to the site, just hover your mouse pointer over the middle pumpkin on the logo and out pop the zombies, doing little Thriller dance steps. But if you hover your pointer over the base of the logo’s exclamation point, you’ll get the whole dance routine. Try it–it’s fun! Hurry before it disappears forever after Halloween!

Filipinos really do not celebrate Halloween the way Westerners do. But I do admit that it can be a lot of fun. I would just like to share some of the Halloween stuff we did at work–paper mache decors and paper crafts made by teachers and kids that adorned our place of work:
…And we had a small Trick or Treat activity that involved our kids and from another center, parading in simple costumes and masks up and down the building, and knocking on doors of the nearby offices. It was a good thing our ‘neighbors’ took time to accommodate us and bought some candies and sweets to hand out for the little ones (some of the grown-ups who are still kids at heart took part as well!):
Have a spooky-tacular Halloween!
