I thought my daughter was joking when she texted me “MOMMY NANALO KAMI”. She was so thrilled because they won the coveted Best Student Short Film of the 38th Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) on Wednesday night (October 12, 2016). She and the whole group, namely Gabbie, Rio, (without Maja) and adviser were present at the event held at the Star Theater, Star City, CCP Complex in Pasay City.  My daughter said they were nervous the whole time and didn’t expect to bag the award so they were surprised when their entry was announced as the winner.

I knew how my daughter and her friends (Gabbie, Rio and Maja) worked hard for their thesis which is an 8-12 minute animation about the parable of the prodigal son, aptly titled The Prodigal Son. They struggled all through those sleepless nights, sweat and tears, to be able to finish the project despite having to attend to their other classes for the entire school year. Now their hard work has been recognized by the prestigious award giving body for its significance to the community.

Indeed, I’m so HAPPY for them, especially for my daughter. We thank God for all these blessings. #proudmommymoment  #thankful  #blessed

Three years in a row

Just happy to share that N qualifies for another scholarship for school year 2016-2017. This year has been very good to our daughter in terms of academic achievements. She was able to pass the Maya certification exam and recently, won the best 2d artwork. It’s such a blessing indeed to see your child slowly realizing her dreams.

(If I could give her a gift, I would like to give her a musical instrument. Besides drawing, she wish to learn to play a guitar. The good brands, I think, are from this site because Musician’s Friend sells lace pickups and other accessories.)

We may have share of concerns these past few months, but here’s one good news that uplift our spirits. Our daughter passed the Maya Certification exam this week and now she is a Maya certified professional.

Congratulations, anak!

I was at the hospital when I received the good news. My daughter forwarded a portion of this email to me:


I’m not a technical person so in order to understand what does an Autodesk Professional do to help my daughter in her future career. I’m copying some information from this site:
