I was browsing the internet for the perfect photo editing software and I think the Adobe Photoshop Elements version 10 is just the kind that I am looking for. Here is one of its features..... depth of field. This is a new feature in photoshop which enables you to feature a specific subject on your photos by adding or adjusting its depth of field. As you can see on my first photo, me and my hubby looked blurred because the background was more focused. By using the guided editor in photoshop, I simply clicked on our image then added the depth of field on the background so that it will look blurred. Now I can see ourselves more clearly on the after photo.

Today is report card day. My two sons in high school have no classes today to give way to parents and teachers conference and the giving of their report cards for the 2nd trimester. My youngest son studies harder each trimester because he is aiming to become the top of his class. Last 1st trimester, he was expecting to be on the Third Honors list but unfortunately he didn't made it because he got a low grade in Computer. For him to be included in the honors list he must not have a grade lower than 82 and his general average must not be lower than 83. Well, he did it this time! All his grades including the not so major subjects are not lower than 82 and his general average is much higher than 83. So I am so happy and proud that he made it into the 3rd honors list and I still hope that he will maintain in that list till the end of the school year. He even got certificates in English for being on the top 2 and Filipino for being on the top 3. He is also a deportment awardee so he got a total of 4 certificates including the 3rd honor certificate. Congratulations Ryan!

Yikes! It's 2012 already and still I haven't updated my blog posts. Laziness keeps on creeping inside my head whenever I contemplate on doing some posts. Most people especially on New Year, tend to make their New Year resolutions. I'm one of them! My list consists of at least 10 resolutions whether I do them or not entirely. My bad.... So this 2012, I decided to skip the list and I'll just take one resolution at a time and do it whenever I feel doing it. This way, I won't be pressured on doing these resolutions until the end of the year and ending up not doing them at all. So it's a no list, no pressure for me.
So my first resolution for this year that popped out off my mind this morning is to change the look of my blog before I update it. Yup, resolution #1, checked! I figured that to be able to write again , I have to change the look, the theme and the design of my blog so that I be bored to write. I've been busy last year to even open my blogs and I kind of got bored, especially when Facebook hits the roof. I mean who in the entire planet doesn't have an FB account these days? My sentiments exactly. FB is more fun and exciting nowadays :) Well, I guess that's another resolution for me.... minimize my FB time, more time on blogging. The important thing is that I started my year right and let's just hope I ended it with a bang. First post this 2012, checked! And more to come.....

It has always been our family's tradition to close our businesses on Good Friday and pay tribute to our Lord for his sufferings. After breakfast, we all went to our Parish church in Hagonoy Bulacan (what our family calls "Parong Parong"). We spent our time there getting together with the rest of the Santiago clan, tried to read and sang the "pasyon" and witnessed again the men who wore red cloths on their faces with thorns who walked long distances while hurting their backs with bamboo stilts until they bleed out and then end their journey in front of our church and bathed on the river. My kids cannot stand watching these so called patrons of this tradition for they cannot stand seeing blood. But they always go with us every year and tried not to be affected. Little by little they understand why some people do this every year. I tried to explain to them that these are some Filipino traditions that we must accept and respect. People do these for a reason, and reasons that my kids don't understand yet, but I guess in someday they will.
"Pagbasa ng Pasyon"
