Saturdates are always something Jeff and I look forward to. Last week’s started off with Electrolux’s Delighful-E Yummy Kitchen Class. For someone who spends hours upon hours every week in the kitchen preparing for my family’s meal, I love to learn more to add variety to my usual kitchen prowess. Haha!

The Delightful-E Yummy Kitchen Class was jump started by Nutritionist Ms. Carmela Taob, who gave us valuable tips on how to pick the freshest produce, fish and meat from the market. It is the first step to guarantee a nutrient-packed meal for the family.  She also introduced the Electrolux NutriFresh™ refrigerator is equipped with NutriLight, a system of patented LED lights that helps improve and retain the vitamin content of your food by simulating sunlight. Talk about innovation right in the fridge to keep our food inside fresh longer.

As wifey and I were busy this morning tidying up the house (so we could have our Independence Day date later) while our little guy was out vacationing with his Ninong and Tita for their ID celebration getaway, I received this sweet treat for Father’s Day from Max’s Restaurant. Thank you so much, Max’s!

The hubby and I had the privilege of fellowshipping last Saturday with fellow Christian Bloggers at OMF Literature in Mandaluyong. Thank you Mighty of MightyRasing.com and Kuya Sonnie of AskSonnie.me for inviting us. It was such fruitful time of edifying and encouraging each other to keep on track and not lose our purpose why we want to get our voice heard via our respective blogs, to start with, as Kuya Sonnie talked on pressing on towards having A Purpose Driven Blog.

We were also pleasantly surprised that it was also the same day that “Turned Off by Church,” Pastor Rod Santos’s book is being launched. Talk about timing! We also got to meet one of our son’s favorite authors, Grace Chiong of Super Devos. I remember blogging about it in 2011 and gushing over the comment she left on our homeschooling blog! Our son totally loves her Oh Mateo! series! Our son practically grew up with it. It is just cool to find book authors blogging. It makes them easier to reach unlike some eras ago. The wonders of social media, indeed!

A few weeks ago my family and I got introduced to the Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT) offered in the Philippines by Encycligent. Through fingerprint scanning, me, my wife and our son were able to find out a lot about our inborn gifts out of the 16 multiple intelligences, strengths, weaknesses, interests, etc. It took only a few days before we got the DMIT results and we were more than thrilled to know more about ourselves, and the recommendations that came with it.

 

There were three recommendations that were given in the DMIT results that I want to highlight:

1. To employ our son’s kinesthetic function in his education since it is one of his major talents aside from the mental and visual functions. Knowing this helped me and my wife put more weight in enrolling our son in a regular sport activity that he enjoys rather than getting him into activities during summers only. The knowledge that we gained from the results also helped us understand why our son is the way he is – always wanting to move, the energetic boy that he is. Understanding this helped us deal with him in a more patient manner.

As we read more on this, here are some of that we have learned. These are some of the Characteristics of Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligent People (Multiple Intelligence):

  • Good at dancing and sports
  • Enjoy creating things with their hands
  • Excellent physical coordination
  • Remember by doing, rather than merely hearing or seeing.
