Too bored to function

Despite the cozy room assigned to her and her brother, this young lady still looks bored. The load of assignments and projects must have exhausted her the week before our scheduled overnight stay at Torre Venezia Suites.


Mom, I’m bored.

This is their assigned suite. Unlike our room (Roma Suite), this one is wider and has functional shower area.

Give Your Kids the Gift of Time

happy family

Whenever special occasions come up, we rack our brains out, trying to figure out the best gift to give our loved ones, most especially our kids. The thing is, we don’t have to wait for a special occasion to give our kids the best gift possible – our time.

We parents do lead busy lives, what with having to juggle work and household chores. We should remember though, that if we want our kids to grow up mentally and emotionally healthy, we should carve out some time to be with them.

For example, if you are enrolled in school or an online degree program yourself, studying together at the table creates memories and bonds relationships.

We don’t need to do anything extravagant for them. They may not verbalize it, but our kids do appreciate it if we sit down to watch their favorite TV show with them, or stop to ask them about how they day in school went. All it takes is a few minutes each day. Set aside some time to do something with them, or listen to them. It will make them feel more loved, secure, and confident to take on the challenges of life.
