Surprise, Surprise ...

Excited about the idea of a holidays-themed game?  So are Murder by Death and I.  Before you're getting in gear for exactly the "Twelve Tasks" you remember from last year, though ...

 

-- there just might be a little surprise in the wings after all.

 

Since MR and OB are taking a well-deserved and long overdue break from game hosting this holiday season, MbD and I offered to help out this time around.  So ... watch this space over the course of the next couple of days!

San Marcelino District Hospital Gift Giving Activity 2017

Life is so magical and beautiful indeed we should live it fully.

 

As a way of sharing and helping others, for the past 3 consecutive years Isabelita Rosueta Organization (IROG) make it to a point of extending help to the newborn babies in San Marcelino Hospital. The smile from those loving parents is undeniably the proof of how happy they are in having their bundle of joy.

 

 

 

Last September 16, 2017, 20 newborn babies received a bag of happiness: packed with essential baby needs; diaper, feeding bottles and some baby dresses and baby mattress pad with pillows. Their parents can’t express how thankful they are to receive such gift. It could be a small or simple thing for others but as we say “No matter how big or small a thing could be, what matters most is the happiness that it brings.”

 

IROG is always looking to the positive side that those newborn babies could make a difference in the future. Let them feel that we are always ready to guide them in facing what the world would give.

 

You cannot buy happiness, happiness is born. – Unknown

As part of the celebration for the World Breastfeeding Awareness Week and National Breastfeeding Awareness Month every August, Isabelita Rosueta (IROG) Foundation participated in the HAKAB NA OLONGAPO 2017 with the theme “Sama-sama nating ibalik sa uso ang pagpapasuso” at Harbor Point Ayala Mall Activity Center last August 5, 2017.

 

The event was spearheaded by the Breastfeeding Pinays Olongapo (BFP Olongapo), with the advocacy of promoting breastfeeding in Olongapo, Zambales and Bataan. They are educating the mothers and soon to be moms the importance of breastfeeding not only for their babies but as well as for themselves.

Activism in India
Book Uncle and Me - Julianna Swaney,Uma Krishnaswami

Like those of you who come to my blog looking for book recommendations, I often check out book vloggers/bloggers and 'what's new in children's lit' to see what I should be checking out next. That's how I heard about Book Uncle and Me by Uma Krishnaswami. Firstly, I don't think I've ready any children's books from an Indian author before so I was interested to see if the styles would be at all similar and what kind of themes would be explored. Secondly, this book is about two of my favorite things: books and community activism. :-D Our main character, Yasmin, is a voracious reader and she gets all of her books from a lending library run by Book Uncle who sets up his 'shop' on the corner by her apartment building. There is no price for these books and if you want to keep it then that's perfectly okay. Yasmin and many members of her community come to see this little library as a constant in their lives but one day their world is upended because Book Uncle has been told that he must leave. What transpires next is nothing short of inspiring and that's just what I think is so phenomenal about this book. It teaches children that their actions matter and that activism can be accomplished by every member of the community. It's a great way to talk about 'doing your part' that doesn't make it overbearing or heavy-handed. It's also a great way to expose children to a different part of the world. 8/10

 

Note: This book will also make you extraordinarily hungry.
