Found a New Gem at Jocelyn V. Cacas Montessori School

Hello my dear readers and followers!

It was one ordinary day in February 2014 when I decided to scout for another school for our unico hijo. I asked a former student, now turned into a teacher, friend and daughter, if she could recommend a good school nearby our place. 

She recommended Jocelyn V. Cacas Montessori School, Inc. in Heritage Homes, Loma de Gato, Marilao, Bulacan as it has good standing in terms of academic competitions and many others.

I then tried to look for it and see how it appears to parents who are in darn need of a good school. After some research and scouting efforts, sometime in March 2014, we finally decided to drop by to Jocelyn V. Cacas Montessori School, Inc. (JVCMSI) to see it for ourselves. 

We visited the school and talked to some teachers whom we saw in the campus.

The school heads and teachers, including the staff and personnel, were all accommodating and courteous. They answered our queries and facilitated all other issues in relation to our strong intent to have our kids enroll in JVCMSI. 

This made us feel happy, blessed and hopeful that finally we have found a ‘gem’. Though this is not that ‘near’ to our village, we are still willing to give it a try.

May we be blessed with this decision as we are really determined to work hand-in-hand with them as we commit ourselves to be their partners in rearing our kids and preparing them to a brighter future.


Hopeful and blessed,

Mommy Mai

Batch 2014 Graduates - Congratulations! Eieo is In!

March 2014 - This is considered to be the perfect time to reap the fruits of your labor and hard work, the best time to reward and express your gratitude to your loving parents. Another milestone, continuing life's journey to live it to the fullest and to become that 'someone' you've always wanted and prayed to be. 

March 25, 2014 @ 8 a.m. - Eieo's Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation Ceremony at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy, Sta. Rosa, Marilao, Bulacan

Truly, graduating pre-elementary (a.k.a. preparatory, kindergarten, casa) is more of a milestone than an accomplishment. Seeing him happy and proud of what he has learned and achieved is far better than his being a top student. Seeing him with his friends at school and inviting them to come over our place to play and for him to share his toys have been some of the perks a mom and a dad could ever experience as their kiddo is having so much fun at the preparatory school. And most of all, the 'unsolicited' good feedback and remarks from his teachers, fellow students and even other parents are really music to our ears.

Eieo humbly takes pride of his achievements even at his very young age. Oh well, they say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and in this case, we know that our little prince is on his way. Good job, son! Thank you for always making us feel blessed, happy and proud. Dad and I have always felt our worth and we both know that we're doing a great job - all because of you. 

Eieo is a gift from GOD... and so we continuously share our blessings to the world even in our own little ways. To GOD be the Glory! 

Hopefully, GOD will bless us with another kid, a daughter, Eiea ... and this will surely make the three of us very happy, the happiest family ever. 

Anyway, we would also like to greet my dearest BIG sons and daughters in the academe, BSE 4A and 4B, MQAPCians, congratulations on your graduation. You all made it! xoxo

You will all be in our prayers for we are with you in spirit and in faith. Remember what I always tell you - Be blessed and be a blessing, be inspired and be an inspiration, and most of all, always pass the good deeds on. 

Love lots,

Mommy Mai

Pray, Work and Love - Let's Pass the Good Deeds on

Hubby and I have been an inspiration to many lives - even in our own little ways. Yes, we have been passing the good deeds on since day 1 and sharing our blessings to others. And we know that Eieo is a gift from above, fruit of our labor, reward for doing acts of kindness, and many others. He is indeed God's blessing, such a great bundle of joy. We couldn't thank God enough for giving us such a wonderful kiddo - smart, bibo, loving, adorable! 

Getting pregnant is very hard for me since I have PCOS, hormonal imbalances, ovulation disorder, etc. And since I have been undergoing several baby dancing work-ups and activities (i.e. medications, therapies, etc.) - all these things just to conceive again and be blessed with another kiddo, a daughter whom we'll be named as Eiea.

After rigid consultations with my Ob-Gynecologist (a specialist in high-risk pregnancy, infertility and pregnancy loss) and a year of regular, bi-monthly check-ups and ultrasounds, hubby and I finally decided to engage in Chinese alternative medicines and routines (i.e. fertility acupuncture, ventosa, massage, etc.) - these sessions shall be done at least once or twice a week. Though each session may be really expensive, we are willing to invest in these activities just to have Eiea (with God's grace). All for Eieo's happiness and for Eiea.  :-)
