Poetry: Muni-muni sa plantsa

Ito ang paborito kong blusa,

12 maghabi ng tela (Ilok)

Weekly Reflections: Welcoming a child

September is declared as Children’s Month. This is probably to emphasize the importance of children in our nation’s life and future. But actually, every month should always be a children’s month.
