The Yellow Tomorrow Show put the spotlight on dads who have successfully transitioned to the home-based life as online English teachers with 51Talk.
It’s not everyday that you get the chance to have light banter and play fun games with the country head of the leading online English education company. In this episode, Ms. Jen Que let us in on her personal life and quarantine activities while still staying on top of things in her workplace.
Mommy Blogger, businesswoman and Taxumo’s Chief Operating Officer Ginger Arboleda joined the Yellow Tomorrow Show to share productivity hacks for moms while TJ Monterde played games and sang live for the viewers.
The Yellow Tomorrow Show is an online show that we launched in the middle of the pandemic as a means to share the good news about 51Talk and keep our home-based online English teachers engaged through online fun, special guests, and interactive games. In the first episode, we had Nelli Samson and Louie Wells as our teacher guests who shared stories of their 51Talk life. Teacher Nelli has been with the platform for 7 years and this has helped her support her family, while Teacher Louie is a stay-at-home dad who’s made big investments with his earnings from 51Talk. To provide entertainment, social media star Benedict Cua joined in for a short chat and to perform some songs.
The Yellow Tomorrow Show goes live on the 51Talk page on Thursdays at 9pm.
Entrepreneur, baker and solo parent Bettinna Carlos launched her first book under OMF Literature which details a time in her life where heartbreak after heartbreak came and how God taught her to be more dependent on Him in the face of a health scare and her inability to work during that period.
Singer and songwriter Abby Asistio launched her new sound and image via her latest track “Maria Clara,” which is a delightful fusion of modern beats and the traditional kundiman sound.
I am an advocate of life-long learning and believe that it’s truly beneficial that we make it a habit to pick up new skills or knowledge through books, classes, workshops or pursuing higher education.
Did studying in Europe ever cross your mind? Does the thought of learning alongside people from different nationalities, cultures and disciplines ever excite you? Don’t you want to give your career and credentials a boost with world-class higher education? If finances or fears make you hesitate, I encourage you to attend the European Higher Education Fair 2019 which will be held at the Shangri-la Mall Atrium on October 26, 2019 from 11am-6pm. Interact with the different universities and schools, find out about scholarship grants and financial aid, and listen to the stories of the EHEF Filipino Goodwill Ambassadors who have varied experiences of their student life in Europe.
Those who live in the south and are interested to join, you can also head to the Lyceum University of the Philippines Cavite Campus on October 28 for the second leg of the fair. To pre-register and get more details, visit http://www.ehefphilippines.com
Did a bit of early Christmas shopping at the #OMFLit Booth at the
Manila International Book Fair.
My suggestions for those who are going:
1) Best to go early if you can. I attended the first day and IT WAS CRAZY PACKED.
2) Payment options: They accept cash, credit and debit cards naman.
3) Bring a trolley bag/maleta. I totally forgot that. Ang sakit tuloy ng likod ko. Walking around the halls and booths while carrying your books can take a toll on your arms and back. Don’t make that mistake. 🙂
4) Wear comfortable shoes for the book hunting marathon.
5) Make a list before you go. If you’re buying books as gifts, list who you’re buying for and what kind of books you’ll be getting for them. Having a list also helps you discipline yourself that you don’t linger too long and buy stuff you don’t actually need.
6) ENJOY. ENJOY. ENJOY! Having started school in seminary, we’ve been given a mix of physical books and ebooks to read. Ebooks may be more handy and convenient, but nothing beats the feel of turning the pages of a real book, highlighting and attaching sticky notes with your annotations.
