Should Proper Parenting, Spending, and Scheduling Be Taught in Philippine Schools?

It’s amazing how the dysfunctional mindset of Filipinos permeates the entire society, and that it’s not just the monopoly of the poor and uneducated.

A Sunday Rant: Things That Matter In Life

Okay ladies and gentlemen, it’s Sunday again so time for another sermon!
