Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale By Repertory Philippines
Rapunzel poster.jpg

Rapunzel is one of the most popular fairy tales already during my childhood years The story is about a long-haired girl trapped in a tower. Her long blonde hair has magical healing and restoration powers. More recently she had been brought back into the consciousness of the younger generation by animated feature "Tangled" (2010), where Disney put its own spin to the fairy tale. Now, Repertory Philippines offers their own enchanting twist to the story.


Last Sunday, January 23, 2019, We watched Rapunzel: A Very Hairy Fairy Tale By Repertory Philippines at Onstage Cinema, Greenbelt 1, Makati. Me, JB, Arriana and Amanda together with 30 kids from Don Bosco Parish had a grand time. Repertory Philippines (REP) Theater for Young Audiences brings you a fairly tale classic they've never done before.


Rapunzel is a princess who had been locked away by her aunt Lady Zaza in a high tower located at the edge of a deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest since she was a child. A gallant knight Sir Roderick and his best friend, the flashy hair-stylist Edgar (who is on a quest to find the perfect head of hair), embark on a quest to find and rescue Rapunzel and restore the kingdom before Rapunzel turned 18 the next day. With the help of a little bit crazy gypsy woman and Socrates the old and witty dragon who became fireless, Sir Roderick and Edgar rescue Rapunzel on time.


Filled with colorful costumes, fancy hairstyles, and enchanting stage setup, Director Joy Virata truly knows the way to capture the attention of the young ones and even those young at heart. The play is interactive and the casts roam inside the theater gaining utmost audience participation. You can see the thrill and delight in the kids' eyes as they genuinely try to help the characters.

Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale runs from September 15, 2018 to January 27, 2019 at the Onstage Theater, Greenbelt 1, Makati City.

We can not wait to watch again the upcoming plays from Repertory Philippines. To know what’s coming this season, check their website at


Bacolod Part 1

It will be our first flight as a family. Technically, it is Addy's second time to ride the plane while it is Arriana's first time. We will be in Bacolod from Friday until Monday for our good friend's wedding, Nescy and Christian. #NesC2017 #NesCyoNaAngLahat.

Our flight was delayed and I somehow expected it already since we took the mid day flight. Domestic and International flights share the same runway. It took us 45 minutes before we had the take off clearance. Overall, the plane ride was very smooth except that JB is not seated beside us. Normally, I will fight for what I know is right and can be done. A little background, I was handling the 24/7 department of a well known travel agency for both marine and fit passengers. I handled a lot of VIP frequent travelers and I was able to issue several round the world tickets (yet, round the world means the traveler will visit each continent in one itinerary travel) so I know there must be a way.

Upon arriving Bacolod, we were greeted by the Aunt of Nescy. It was drizzling so we went inside the van right away. It is our first time in Bacolod as well. I am excited to explore the city with my family and most of all with Addy.

The highlight of our day 1 and 2 will definitely be the pre-wedding dinner ( food and the Masskara dancers) and of course, the wedding itself.

Check out our short video below. Day 3 and 4 will follow in the coming days.

Addy's PBAs - English, Math, Science, Arts, Sibika, P.E, Health, CLE

Batangas Long Weekend

Last June 24-25, we spent our long weekend in Batangas. Together with my mother-in-law's side, we went to Calubcub Bay, El Jardin De Zaida, Basaliya and my in law's property in Abung. It was a perfect weekend for my homeschooler.

Addy was able to appreciate the beauty of Batangas. Here are some of our activities with our integrated lessons.


Our convoy is pretty long, 5 cars in total.

Jeep- Popsie, Momsie, Ninang Thatha, Ninong Raul

FJ Cruiser - Kuya Jeff, Ate Agi, Tantan, Kirsten, Addy

Wigo- Me, my husband JB, Ed and Keisa

Avanza- My inlaws, Tita Che and Teo

Strada- Joey and Cha

Going around Batangas is a trail already. We integrated Proper and Common Nouns with the cities and barangays in Batangas. Our exit was in Ibaan. Our first stop was in San Juan, Batangas. Our inlaws are in official business as they need to have their inherited properties measured/surveyed.  This is where Math came in.

We visited two properties, one in Abung and one in Pitogo. The one in Pitogo is filled with coconut trees and banana trees. Here comes, Heath where in we discussed the healthy benefits of banana and coconut also known as the fruit of life.

In Abung, the kids and kids at heart had fun in trailing. The land is a 2 hectare vacant land. This property is in front of El Jardin De Zaida, owned by the family of Pia Guanio's husband. WE met the owner, Tita Zaida. The kids had fun at their infinity pool. I had fun with the nature scenery.

We also went to Basaliya. It is a Bali inspired front beach resort owned by Lola Puring. Not enough photo because they are preparing the place for their guest that will check in but we will definitely go back here.

We stayed at Calubcub Bay. It is actually our second time here. It is a public resort but it is very secured. I like the place because the kids have enough space to play.


Addy and Tantan had fun definitely in the court which is just right in front of our villa. I am so thankful to my brother in law, Teo, for looking after the kids.

FISHING ( Health)

Addy had fun the first time we were here so he was excited to go fishing again but this time with Lolo Marlon. Addy caught Tilapia and Bangus! Just like last time! Arriana and I had to  leave after 15 minutes because it was too hot already.


I wasn't able to document this because I was the cook in charge. But I heard Addy was a little hesitant to try the one with heights. I guess, I still have to help him conquer his fear of heights.

Here's a glimpse of our trip. Sorry for the amateur video. :)
