4th Homeschooling Conference in May

Image
The Homeschooling Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI) recently made announcements that the country's 4th Homeschooling Conference has been scheduled to happen on May 19, 2012. Set to take place at St. Francis Square Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong, the event will gather parents, academe, and homeschooling experts in one venue to promote awareness of the program, as well as provide guests with access to homeschool-related tools and services.

Its a simple, nature-lover, and clean resort. We arrived a little late and decided to rent a table. I also rented a locker so that we can secure our valuables. I've checked the place, and the ambiance is great. The resort crews were friendly and accommodating despite of what I've read online :)

And am so happy to see an olympic size (lap pool) swimming pool. I stayed the entire day 'swimming' and I am planning to 'swim' every weekend for an exercise (if time permits! I need to find a swimming place first).
