September 28, 2010 Pearl 1

Do you have an issue with your kids’ schools asking you to sign a waiver form whenever they have educational field trip or an overnight school activity? This has been a long-standing issue with my kids’ school and we initially raised this concern, I think, 5 years ago,  when we saw the waiver clause that they put in the permission slip that they asked the parents to sign for the school’s educational field trip.  They indicated there that they will not be responsible for any untoward incident that might happen during the field trip.

We just recently discovered that Faye loves Mangosteen when we brought home a kilo of this from Divisoria.  So, when my husband went to Davao last Monday, he brought home 5 kilos of Mangosteen!  Faye was so excited when her Dad texted and told her that he bought lots of Mangosteen for her.  We also learned of the many health benefits of eating this fruit.

Online Shopping Made Easy

September 23, 2010 Pearl 0

Online shopping has seen a strong upward trend in the last few years.  People who have been wary and hesitant to do this in the past, have been more trusting in doing online business with people that they don’t know personally.  But, of course, we should still be conservative when it comes to giving out our personal details.  Unlike before  when the things that we can buy online were limited to clothes and shoes, nowadays, we can even purchase grills online, or even outdoor furniture like a garden set. This is really very convenient especially for those busy people who Read More
