If there's one thing that the quarantine has taught Barangay Ginebra veterans LA Tenorio and Jeff Chan, it's how to excel at becoming stay-at-home dads.

In the latest episode of the online videoconferencing show "PBA Kamustahan," they agreed they've had to adjust their domestic routines following the Luzon-wide lockdown caused the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Nabigla. Naging full-time parents kami. Du'n ko na-realize 'pag kasama mo ang kids, crazy pala. Eventually nakapag-adjust kami, marami kaming na-discover," said Chan, who has dabbled in baking. 

"Nagni-knead na'ko, pero taga-press lang. Si Dona (his wife) na ang bahala."

Chan said he has also learned how to cook for his kids.

"Nagluluto na'ko every morning. 'Yung kids nare-request eto ang gusto nilang breakfast," he said.

Tenorio said the lockdown may have taken his time away from practice, but his family has benefited from the change in schedule.

" 'Pag season kasi we cannot play with the kids that much, we spend much time at practice," the Ginebra playmaker said. "Ngayon, marami tayong nadi-discover."

The best thing for Tenorio? He has become better at numbers.

"Gumaling tayo sa math while teaching my kids," Tenorio said, laughing. 

"I'm good at math right now, multiplication, subtraction, division . . . Nagiging creative tayo. It's kind of challenging also for sure for everyone."
