It’s day-I-don’t-know-what of the Enhanced Community Quarantine or ECQ in Luzon, which includes NCR, my region.

I took an almost three-month hiatus. To be honest, I wasn’t so busy with work. I just felt like I needed a little time for myself, off from social media, for my own well-being and mental health. I wasn’t active in FB or IG too. I missed writing, though. And, like always, writing or this…… Continue reading #BlissfulKids | Art in Island Day
