"Super dee duper summer"
Sun.Star Davao, March 28, 2009

Coming up with Davao City’s Kiddie Summer Workshops has been a regular feature I started in 2007. Two years later, it has become one of my most anticipated articles. It is very heartwarming to know that a lot of parents and kids look forward to reading ‘the list’ every summer.
