Here's me spending time with my cute nephews and nieces albeit online. Andreas, one of my nephews just turned 6 years old three days ago. Sadly I had to cancel my trip back to Manila to join his birthday party. He had a big birthday cake but only had his mom and his grandparents to celebrate with. Chase, my other nephew is 9 years old, Charm is 7, and little Cherish is almost 2. I sorely miss being with them.


Although using the Internet has become a huge part of our lives, I hope that this will not be the "normal" way of socializing in the future because nothing beats being with people in person. I come from a country where greeting and saying good bye to each other with a hug, and holding hands, embracing and touching the people we love- our family and friends, are an important part of our custom and culture. Anyway, I think the Corona virus is just making me more appreciative and grateful for a lot of things that we took for granted when everything felt safe and secure.


Stay strong, safe, and healthy everyone. Keep learning new things as well.

My family in Manila is trying to stay away from Corona virus by staying home. It is the best time for us to keep in touch online. Yesterday I helped my brother babysit his kids online!

They love educational activities. So we did a tongue twister challenge then, we played しりとり in English. My niece Charmaigne and my nephew Chase had such a fantastic time!

We at JOY would be more than happy to teach JOY kids online if the government decides to extend the shutdown of schools. We hope you will try to upload the Zoom App on your iPhone or Android. Let’s not let the fear of Covid-19 take control of our lives.


Take care everyone!
