Johan enrolled in Taekwondo for the first time this year. He has been raring to get his first colored belt but he missed his first opportunity for promotion in October because of a family outing.
He finally got his chance on November 25 at the San Beda gym in Alabang He was one proud jin.
Here’s a video clip of his entire promotion test. He was actually quite a bit disappointed because he thought he was going to see some real action. Of course white belters don’t do sparring yet during their promotion test.
His sister, Marielle, took a promotion test on November 25, too. In her case she earned her high-blue belt.
Of course Johan could not NOT have these eye-candy Ferrari Lego models. His mom eagerly collected all of them, including the Ferrari crew.He got 2 pieces of some models, in fact, since he inevitably lost some Lego pieces before his mom could complete his collection.
Moms can get really gullible some time. All for love, of course.
Just like with most of his other toys, however, the fixation was short lived. He already got bored of his Lego Ferraris and he is now all too willing to put them in our “Share Your Toys to the Less Fortunate Kids this Christmas” box.
Johan was just slightly curious to try this slide that seemed to terrify many of the kids in the play area. But his curiosity quickly turned to boredom as he conquered the slide without the slightest hitch.
This short video clip was taken at Kids City in Hard Rock Hotel Macau.
JOHAN went to see Hansel and Gretel, a Children’s Musical, on October 20, 2012, in Star Theater. He was with his mom, Ate Marielle, and Lola Paz.
The Hansel and Gretel musical was another production of Kids Acts Philippines, Inc. (KAPI). Johan and his Ate Marielle are currently enrolled in the Weekends Musical Theater Workshop being conducted by KAPI. Who knows at the end of the workshop some time in March, Johan and his Ate Marielle may find themselves cast in one of the KAPI musical productions for 2013?
Back in June, at the beginning of SY2012-2013, Johan enrolled in Futsal for one of his extra-curricular enrichment activities in Maria Montessori Children’s School. In September, he was among the few students drafted to form a team to represent his school in the invitational football tournament organized and conducted by the Kaya Football Academy.
The tournament was held at the Alabang Country Club on September 16, 2012.
It was Johan’s first real football tournament so his entire family went to watch him play.
Johan is starting to scare his mom and dad with his seeming lack of fear when it comes to extreme adventures.
During his recent family outing in White Rock Resort in Subic Johan could not seem to get enough of the resort’s three extreme slides.
Extreme roller coaster rides do not seem to scare him either. He is actually very frustrated that he is not yet allowed in some rides because he falls a few hair strands short of the minimum height requirement (usually 4 feet). He can’t wait to reach four feet and measures up practically every day to check.
Before going on a mid-school year break by end of October, Johan’s A. Mabini class in Maria Montessori Children’s School had a Halloween Costume party. Johan grudgingly wore a Dracula costume that his mom and dad bought at the last minute the night before.
Oh boy, he was one extremely handsome vampire, don’t you agree?
In their recent family outing in White Rock Subic, Johan got to try riding a jet ski for the very first time. He wasn’t alone, in fact, as his Ate Marielle and even his Dad were to try the jet ski for the first time also.
Johan was itching to drive the jet ski himself but he was just too small yet. Maybe next year.
