Just one mistake

My eldest son–Martin Howell–has just made his parents proud again. This morning, he took an entrance exam in Celestial School, a private elementary school in Marikina Heights, Marikina City run by former UP teachers.

He passed the exam with flying colors. In fact, he only got one mistake out of 52 items. I learned that that mistake was regarding the test question: The house is made of ______ a. wood, b. would, c. word. I’m sure that out of eagerness to finish his exam as fast as he could, he inadvertently answered “b. would”. “It’s funny,” my wife Lea said. “That question was one of the easiest.”

Well, Kuya Martin is just human.


  1. Pareng dong,

    First, Congrats to Martin, Di nakapagtataka na mahusay din ang bunga di nga may kasabihan na kung ano sng puno siya rin bunga. Syempre saan pa magmamana yan syempre sa dakilang daddy at Mommy.

    Second Congrats sa inyong dalawa. Na kahit busy sa lahat ng bagay sa pagtulong sa mga magsasaka at pagbabago ng kalagayan ng lipunan whiz mare at pare nakuha niyo pa ring gabayan ang inyong anak. Congrats ….

  2. dong,

    and with his age,
    it’s promising to be
    more than human
    because for sure,
    and just like his
    parents, he’ll be
    growing up more
    humane to the cause.
