Hi! My good friend just opened up a tutorial center near Xavier and ICA, Bright Tomorrow Tutorial and Learning Center. And I hope you guys can check it out. Bright Tomorrow aims to help students achieve academic excellence by providing tutorial classes to complement the student’s current and future lessons in school. Their first center is at 56 Abad St., cor. Gen de Jesus, Little Baguio, San Juan.
They moved closer to Xavier and ICA when they opened their second branch at 81 Xavier. The center offers small group tutorial and enrichment sessions for students from pre-school to high school, in all subjects, including Chinese.
The main advantage of Bright Tomorrow is in their philosophy that acknowledges and respects the uniqueness of each student that enters their center. I think each student has a different wiring and you can’t use a single approach in tutoring everyone. Some prefer to work alone, others prefer to have a tutor close by. Some need a detailed explanation, others can get general principles. In the end, the full potential of each student can be maximized by addressing their individual learning styles.
Apart from their tutorial services, Bright Tomorrow also houses Learning Library. Learning Library is a reading enrichment program that helps children become better readers by using reading comprehension techniques to enhance their reading experience and further develop love for reading. By equipping the kids with good comprehension skills, the students will have a better grasp of their other lessons as well since everything is anchored on reading and understanding what they read.
My tweeners just started with Bright Tomorrow to help them with their lessons, particularly in Math and Chinese lessons. Their math lessons are sooo beyond me already and eek I don’t even speak Chinese! I’m happy Bright Tomorrow is there to help him through.
Trapped Between a Scream and a Hug,
I stumbled upon this quote and thought OMG this is what my mommy friendships are all about. Sharing those, “what you too?” moments that makes us reach for the oxygen when our kids are not in their sunny best and those “awww” moments that makes up for it.
Over the years since I have become a mom, I have forged new friendships to include my circle of moms from my son’s school and daughter’s school. I have also forged friendships with my fellow bloggers, mostly moms as well.
Having a cup of coffee or enjoying brunch that turns into merienda is like going to the doctor for therapy minus the chair and fees. I tell them the truth. The truth that my kids are not perfect, I’m not perfect but we all try. And like a pint of my favorite gelato it always makes me feel better. It tells me that we all have our great moments as well as the shameful ones when we blow our lungs out or cry like the frustrated 3 year old we are taking care of. And it isn’t that awful because they excitedly scream, “OMG! What? You too? I thought I was the only one.”

Trapped Between a Scream and a Hug,
Micarapatan Ka Na. Uplifting the socio-economic status of each and every Filipino is an issue very close to my heart. I believe every Filipino has a right to have a home he can call his own, complete with title and all the decency he deserves. After all, second to the children we raise, we parents consider our home to be our next greatest achievement.
Last week, I was privileged to be part of a group that MICARA LAND invited to take a sneak peek of the affordable housing community they are developing. MICARA LAND is a subsidiary of Pro-friends (Property Company of Friends, Inc.).
MICARA ESTATES-TANZA, situated in the progressive town of Tanza, Cavite is a mere 30 minute ride from Coastal Metro Bus Station and is accessible through Cavitex. The community they are developing will come complete with all the amenities households would need – grocery, church, public transport terminals, security, parks and swimming pools. Numerous schools are along Tanza. Tanza General Hospital and public market is also nearby. Parents can relax in their work and know that everything their children need is just a stone’s throw away from their home.
I was pleasantly surprised when I heard how affordable the house and lot in Cavite is. Their Tricia House has a 40sqm lot area / 30sqm floor area and is only approximately P 695,000.00 for cash purchases and if amortized through Pag-ibig, only P 4,605/month over 30 years. It’s just like renting a house! Households with a combined income of as low as P 25,000/month can afford to have a house!
They also have other affordable house and lot size combinations but the ones available for the current Phases 1 and 2 are the Tricia House and the Portia House. The Portia House has a lot area of 45 sqm and floor area of 40 sqm and is priced at approximately P896,000 for cash purchases or amortized over 30 years with Pag-ibig at P 6,024/month.
All houses currently being built will come with a one car garage and is in ready for move in condition. The floors will be in plain cement finish, painted plain cement finish for walls, ceramic floor tiles for the bathroom with water closet and lavatory, kitchen will come with a sink and of course doors and windows. Here is a photo of the deliverable condition of the house:
But the interior renovations you can do with the property is endless. Here are some samples of how you can finish your home:
30 Sqm Tricia House – Zen Inspired
30 Sqm Tricia House – Modern Minimalist Inspired
Tricia Expanded – Nature Inspired. Expanded versions serve as inspiration for expansion and are currently not for sale.
40 Sqm Portia House Condo Inspired
40 Sqm Portia House – Cabin Inspired. Portia house comes with a ground floor bedroom.
Cynthia. Classic inspired Cynthia is an expanded version of the 40 sqm Portia. Cynthia serves as inspiration for expansion and is currently not for sale.
Another Cynthia, this time resort inspired.
Super nice right! It is amazing how much you can do with a 40 or even 30 square meter floor area! I’m positive kids who come home to such a well-kept house will have a good future on their shoulders. My husband and I are always in agreement that a well kept house reflect on the well being of the children and of course us parents, too:-)
Micara Land (reach them on Facebook/Micara Land or through the Micara Land Website) further assures Micara Land homeowners of a “Maalagang” community as it will take administrative care of the services in the estate. The rules and regulations of the estate will be enforced such as no converting of house to a sari-sari store etc. in order to maintain an orderly community.
Ang ayos hindi ba? The possibilities Micara Land offers every Juan is uplifting. In the end, I think Micara Land’s affordable house and lot in Cavite is more than just the brick and mortar house they sell, it is the opportunity given to every Filipino family to get out of the poverty mindset resting in the knowledge that their dream house can now be a reality.
Pamilyang Pilipino, Micarapatan ka!
Disclosure: Thank you Micara Land for providing affordable house and lot in Cavite to Filipino families. And thank you for the fun trip to Micara Estates-Tanza and for sponsoring this post.
