October Halo-Halo

We are finally now getting into halo-halo weather! Halo-halo means “mix-mix”. So here is my monthly mix of my favourite sites, tools and ideas which are definitely quite random this month – a trend that I’m sure will continue as we head towards the end of the year.



September Halo-Halo

Another month, another halo-halo. Halo-halo means “mix-mix”. So here is my monthly mix of my favourite sites, tools and ideas with a definite light-hearted and fun tone this month in celebration of holidays. Warning – procrastination tools ahead!


Reflecting or Redirecting Reality

For many, television supplies a blissful escape from reality. It offers us the opportunity to sit back, relax and take the opportunity to engage with someone else’s dilemmas, discoveries, disasters and dreams. But has the divide between pure entertainment and real life begun to blur with reality TV shows?


Positive Spin

I like to think that I can put a positive spin on just about anything – very much a glass half-full person. However, there are times when this can be incredibly challenging. There are times when even the tiniest frustrations start to pile up and then niggling negativity starts to creep in which makes dealing with every new challenge that little bit more difficult. So I am reminded today of the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto and his work on positive thought.


Shoe Biz – No Need to be an Imelda!

In light of the fact that I have been in the Philippines for the last ten days, I thought it would be fitting (pun intended) to mention shoes in a post.

Long has been the battle in PDHPE to encourage students to bring full sports uniform to change into for practical lessons. This may also mean that they need to also bring another pair of shoes to school, depending on your uniform policy. At my school, black leather school shoes are required to be in correct uniform and students need to change into sneakers/joggers for sport lessons. This can add significant bulk and weight to students’ school bags. Therefore, it is not surprising that shoes are the most common item often “forgotten” when packing sports uniform into the school bag.
