We have approximately two months of summer vacation here in the Philippines - April and May. Classes start in the first week of June, usually and ends in March or the first week of April. Then, we have Christmas vacation which is about a week or two, a semestral break of one week before All Saint's Day (for the students since the teachers have to undergo in-service training during the semestral break), and other non-working holidays throughout the year. However, some universities adjusted the beginning of their classes to August instead of June but the majority maintained their usual school calendar.

It's interesting to see the difference in school holidays for different countries.

In April we have a 2 week Easter break (our children went back this week). In May we have a couple of bank holidays and a week at the end for half term, but our summer holiday doesn't start until the end of July and we get just 6 weeks.

In the UK we are not allowed to take our children out of school in term time for a family holiday; many schools impose a heavy fine for this. Is it the same for you?

It's a bit more lenient in most schools here depending upon the length of the family holiday. As long as the learner submit output requirements or extra work to make up for his or her absences, most school admins would give considerations especially if it's just a matter of days.

Are you afraid of the dentist and do you go regularly?

I'm not afraid of the dentist but I do not go regularly either. The last time I went to the dentist was more than a year ago and I am planning to return this summer for cleaning to take advantage of the time when there are no classes.

When I need to go to work, my husband wakes me up at 5:30 AM. But when there are no classes like now, since it's summer vacation, I usually get up at 8:00 or 9:00 AM. :D

Do you go away with your family during the school vacation or do you prefer to stay at home?

We usually go to Manila where most of my relatives in my father's side as well as most of my husband's family are. Actually, we just came home last Sunday from Manila.

As of the moment, it's my family from my father side. There are some growing conflicts and we weren't that way before, back when my grandfather and grandmother were alive. Back then, what's happening right now seems impossible. I am also worried about how time and life changes people and I am praying hard that such thing will not happen to my sisters and I as well as our kids.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Life can be hard at times.

What is your fondest childhood memory?

I hope it will all be OK soon.

My fondest childhood memory is when the whole family from my father's side went on an out-of-town trip which turned out to be more of a road trip. I remember those times when my cousins and I were like brothers and sisters and all troubles seemed so minuscule.
