10 Filipino Games to Pass Down to Your Kids this Summer

Growing up in the 90s was the best. We were the last generation to play in the streets without the distraction of computers, the internet, or mobile phones. I mean those probably existed then, yes, but they were foreign objects to us. Somehow the outdoors felt safer then, life was simpler, and more physically active. A lot of our culture is distilled in those games that we played, so we have a moral obligation to preserve them. I taught my 8-year-old nephew patintero and luksong baka the other week. Of course, he prefers to call them “Cross the Line” and “Jump over the Cow” (let’s save this for another topic) but we had a blast! A major plus is most of these games don’t even require any material! So do your kids (and the kid in you) a huge favor–teach them these ten games to play this summer.

This glowing momma-to-be had an enchanting maternity shoot, and the styling by Yvonne Camay definitely deserves a mention. From the warm homey tones that transition to the enchanting browns and blues with an almost vintage feel, I do have to say that the styling was definitely an A+. The candles, the piano, the tulle, the chandelier, and the dried flowers–the end result is sultry and mesmerizing. See the photos from Melbourne Galvez Photography for yourself!
