Final Salute to a Great Husband and Father: Jesse Robredo





Like Atty. Leni Robredo, I am also a wife and a mother.
Just like Aika, Trisha and Jillian, I am also a daughter.


I am so attached with the passing of Jesse Robredo not because of his political achievements, but because of how his family describes him as a husband and as a father.








These lines from Atty Leni Robredo's made me cry:

  • But Jess, just this one time, allow us to celebrate your life in the way we think you deserve to be honored.
  • If we could hear Jess speak, I know he would be saying "Sobra sobra na ito".
  • Maybe for him, it was a perfect end to a life well-lived.
  • He still decided to fly home, he just wanted to surprise us and make us happy.
  • He told me in the calmest voice that he would call me later, he said that he was just taking care of something. He never called me back.
  • That was Jess to his very core. He was always working so hard but at the same time, always rushing home to be with his family.
  • The weekend before that fateful crash, he fixed everything in the house: busted lights, broken doorbell, leaking faucets. He always looked forward to feeling like a regular man in the house. He said these simple tasks made him feel important to his family and strengthens him.
  • Much has been said about how great Jess was as a public servant, but to us, his family, we will remember him most as an exceptional husband and father. He died with nothing left unsaid. He constantly showered us with I love yous. He always told me he was lucky he married me. He constantly told my children he was proud of them.
  • He would drop everything for our girls. He wasn't there just for the big events but also for the small ones.

A Day Well Spent at The Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort

Our First (and might be our last) beach getaway for Summer 2016 was spent at The Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort.

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center

McKenzie turned 2 last Monday, August 20, 2012.

She is displaying extreme interest to singing, dancing and art (color-ing! she would always say). This made us decide to check out the available music, art or dance schools in our area.


Last Sunday, we dropped by Lea De Castro Music Studio and Artist Center Inc in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. It is approximately 15 minutes away from our place.


Unfortunately, music lessons are offered only to kids 6yo and older.


They offer Baby Ballet for 3-5 year old kids. The person at the front desk told me they could accept kids younger than 3yo provided she is ready to be left alone in the studio with the dance teacher and the other kids.The Dance Studio is at the 2nd floor and parents can only wait outside.

I was told we could bring her over to sit in one time for 30 minutes. The dance teacher would provide an ev…
