Runner-up!Hahaha!I won first runner-up in our school's MusicFest.It was my first time joining the contest because last year i had the flu during the auditions. I sang "Man in the Mirror"by Michael Jackson.I was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt and a black vest.Of course,it's an MJ song so I wore a hat. The first place winner sang "No Surprise" by Chris Daughtry. One of the other contestants cried backstage because people were laughing at him.I think he was traumatized by that.

I had my First Confession last November 13. I confessed all my sins for the first time because I will have my First Communion on December 11. I am a Roman Catholic and after Baptism, these are the two sacraments I have to undergo. It feels good to tell Fr. Manuel all my sins. But now I have to try not to sin again because my First Communion is still weeks away. I am excited to have my First Communion. After these sacraments is Confirmation but maybe that will be when I am already in Grade Six.

I am so happy that I now have my own laptop. My El Abuelo, our old desktop computer, can now rest. But actually, we are giving El Abuelo to my cousins, Ate Meg and Kuya Olec. We hope they take good care of El Abuelo because it is already 8 years old, almost as old as me.
Okay, Yoda, my new laptop is just a netbook. It is a Neo Vivid V1103. My mom won it in a blogging contest. Since she already has her own laptop, her Mc Lelen (Lenovo), she gave Yoda to me. We named it Yoda because the contest is "You're The 1, Goldilocks" hehehe. My mom also has a hard time with the small screen and the small keyboard. It is really suited for kids.
Now I can take Yoda wherever I want, on top of my loft, in my parents' room, or in the living room. I can now blog more often. But I still cannot use it on weekdays. You already know why.

When we visited the Philippine Science Centrum, we had the chance to see all of the exhibits. All of them were very cool! But my favorite three are these exhibits:
The Wonder House looks normal on the outside but is slightly slanted inside. When you go to the upper part of the house, it's like the house is moving!
The Finger Tingler works when you put one finger on each brass plate and rotate the crank attached. When you do, you will feel a mild electrical current run through your body.
The Laser Harp is just like an ordinary harp except it uses lasers as strings! When you put your hand on the empty space inside the harp and move your fingers, you will hear music!
Well, that's my three favorite exhibits. They announced that in June they will have almost a hundred exhibits and the ticket price will go up to a hundred pesos. If you ask me, it's worth the price! If you want to experience these three and many more, go to the Philippine Science Centrum in E-Com Bldg., Riverbanks Center , Barangka, Marikina City or visit their website to know more about them.
You can also view more of our photos and a short video of our tour here.

I love Japanese food especially Ebi Tempura. Now I can enjoy eating Japanese food using chopsticks when we eat at Japanese restaurants. It is true that practice makes perfect. I even ate my Gohan with chopsticks! Gohan is Japanese rice and it is sticky so it is easy to eat with chopsticks. Last week, we went to SM Taytay to eat at Rai Rai Ken. We also ordered Mixed Seafood Furai which is just mixed breaded seafood, Gyoza which is Japanese dumplings, and Miso Soup.

I'm always teased by my classmates. Some of them call me Einstein or nerd, but yesterday, I was proud of it. Yesterday, I got 3 gold medals, one for General Excellence, one for our Math Proficiency Contest, and another one for the Computer Wizards Quest. I also have 2 silver medals, each for the Young Environmentalist Award and the Reading Comprehension Contest. Then my last medal is for being "Best Spook" of our class. So, all in all, I have 6 medals. Last year, I only got the Silver Medal for General Academic Excellence and Gold in Math Proficiency. When I was in Prep, I only thought of becoming the Gold Medalist. But as some other people say, it is not enough to dream. You have to work hard to achieve it.

We went to the SM Discovery Center last October because it was a prize for me being the First Honor. There was a Time Capsule computer there and you can send an email to yourself. I already received it and here's the picture of me while typing it. I say it is so cool!

I was scared to death!
I did not look at the needle!
Here I am with my mom, the other blogger parents, and the Nuffnang staff.
I went with my mom and dad to my very first blogger's event last Saturday. It was a flu vaccine awareness seminar at Sanofi Pasteur in Makati. Mommy is a Nuffnang member and Nuffnang invited her. I was so scared. But I learned that I need to get the flu vaccine so I won't get sick this year. I think I can now audition for the Music Festival when I am already in Grade 3 because I will not get the flu anymore. So boys and girls, tell this to your mom and dads so you will be protected!
