LSGH Undergraduates’ Recognition Ceremonies for School Year 2014-2015

Last Friday, June 26, 2015, we attended the LSGH Undergraduates’ Recognition Ceremonies for school year 2014-2015 at the Brother Rafael Donato Center for Performing Arts at LSGH. Our son Justin was one of the Grade 3 awardees.

Gala Uniform

Last Friday, LSGH celebrated the Mass of the Holy Spirit. Grades 4 to 6 pupils were required to come to school wearing their gala uniform. According to the Pupil Handbook, the gala uniform should be worn on formal assemblies. The gala uniform consists of the following: green long-sleeved polo shirt with the school patch sewn on the left side or left pocket, any color of necktie, black pants, black socks and black leather shoes.

Here is my son wearing his gala uniform for the first time. He wasn’t really keen on having his picture taken as he was preoccupied with the TV show he was watching that time. I still think he looks dapper here. Agree?

Product Review: Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Shampoo and Herbal Conditioner with Argan Oil

I started using Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Shampoo and Herbal Conditioner with Argan Oil last month. I first bought the shampoo at Robinsons Supermarket and later purchased the conditioner at Watsons (because it wasn’t available in the supermarket that time). That’s when I noticed the price difference between these products in the two stores, Php162.00 at Robinsons Supermarket and Php180.00 at Watsons.

Product Ingredients
Both products contain Malunggay (Moringa), Olive, Omega (Sunflower) and Argan oils. Argan oils are rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins (A, C, D, E and B-complex), essential fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 9), calcium and other minerals.

Aside from its anti-hairfall, revitalizing and smoothening properties, Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Conditioner with Argan Oil promises to soften and strengthen hair, make hair more manageable and seal in moisture for healthy hair.

How to Use
Apply Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Shampoo with Argan Oil on wet hair, massage the scalp, then rinse. Follow with Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Conditioner with Argan Oil, then rinse hair again.

My Experience
I love the sweet, fruity scent of these Moringga- O2 products. Only a faint scent is left after the hair dries, however. My hair is manageable after shampooing, but it is smoother and softer when the conditioner is used. Also, when I use both shampoo and conditioner, my hair looks good in the morning when I wake up. I also notice less hair on the floor every day, which means that that these products effectively minimize hairfall. Overall, I’m satisfied with these products, and I’m going to use them for a long time.

First Day of 4th Grade

Last Monday, June 8, was our son’s first day in school. He is now officially a 4th grader. How time flies! To be honest, we aren’t ready for school yet, and if he had his way, our son would have wanted to extend his summer vacation.

Going down for his school service with his crisp uniform, fairly new black shoes and school backpack

He has grown bigger and taller, so we had to buy him new uniforms. He didn’t bring his Hawk trolley bag to school last Monday as they were asked to bring a small bag only for the entire week, hence, the backpack.

I went with him to class that day to see his new classroom, to meet his new homeroom adviser and to take a mandatory first-day-of-school photo inside the classroom.

 photo P_20150608_065557_zpsv6nxhate.jpg

He was excited to go to school to see his classmates and friends but a bit apprehensive about their new teachers. He was hoping to have teachers who are not so strict. They will be meeting all of their subject teachers today and will be following their official class schedule starting next Monday.

As Grade 4 students, they are now being trained to be independent. They now have their snacks and lunch at the school canteen, but he hasn’t been able to eat properly in school since Day 1 due to lack of time. He also goes home later than 4:00p.m. every day because class dismissal is at 3pm and he still has to wait 40 more minutes before his school service departs.

There will certainly be major adjustments for our son this school year, but I hope that he will adapt quickly to these new changes in his school routine. You can do it, son! Mommy and Daddy are here to help you in any way we can.
