Family Travel with Three Children Under Seven

For the kids’ last school break hurrah, we decided to take them all on an out of town trip. We wanted to gift Claret the experience of flying in an airplane for her fifth birthday since she’s making us kulit about wanting to ride an airplane. We chose Bohol for our first family travel destination.…… Continue reading Family Travel with Three Children Under Seven

My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Lifestyle)

The second item in my “Rich Legacy for Kids” series is minimalism and sustainable living. I would like to raise my children knowing that quantity does not equate success, wealth or happiness. They don’t need a lot. I’d like them to realize early that they can do more with less and be beautiful/handsome in simplicity.…… Continue reading My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Lifestyle)

My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Experience over Material Stuff)

Legacy may be too “big” a word to use in this post but I think I’ll stick with it. Over the weekend, I backed-up all our photos taken from my phone over the last three years. Inevitably, I had a trip down the memory lane. My children have grown so fast, I couldn’t really grasp…… Continue reading My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Experience over Material Stuff)

Better Days Ahead (Two Powerful Scriptures that Sustain Me)

I missed my blog!!! I terribly do! It’s not that I didn’t have anything to share but I didn’t have enough juice to beat after working all day. This closing/audit season is one for the books: ONE HELLUV OF A RIDE! Thankfully, “war” (on numbers and disclosures) is over and we’ve finally entered the endgame.…… Continue reading Better Days Ahead (Two Powerful Scriptures that Sustain Me)

My 2019 Lenten Reflections

ConfessionI grew up not comfortable in confessing my sins to other “appointed” people, aka priests. To be honest, all my confessions were only because I needed to – for first communion, confirmation, and marriage. There were times that I felt like I wanted to and needed to confess my sins but fear and shame always…… Continue reading My 2019 Lenten Reflections

#TummyBliss The Boiling Crabs and Shrimps Plus Le Sucre Lab Dreamcakes: Gastronomic Adventures

Today is the most-awaited Friday and no motherhood or money post from me. I’m not surprised to find it difficult not to talk about these two topics in which my world seems to revolve around. But, I also quickly realized how necessary and healthy this day is for me as I am forced to refocus…… Continue reading #TummyBliss The Boiling Crabs and Shrimps Plus Le Sucre Lab Dreamcakes: Gastronomic Adventures

When Things are Not Blissful

Who is excited for the Chinese New Year? I am!!! I am usually not but this year, I cannot wait for the year of the pig to arrive. It’s because my January 2019 has not been good.

By now, you might have noticed that it’s missing. I did not look back on the year that was because I…… Continue reading What I Will be Seeking First this 2019

Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas – once nothing but a joyful season has become a rushed, intense and exhausting time as I grew older. It is not Christmas’ fault. I know that. It’s people’s perception of celebration, expectations, and superficiality. When I was in college, I used to strive to complete all nine mornings at three in…… Continue reading Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

#TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1t9Y5C2fGc&t=114s If there is one thing in my pre-mamahood life that I terribly miss, it would be my travels, yes, even more than my pre-pregnancy body! I used to hoard airline tickets on sale, albeit local only. And every time I get stressed out, I would just open my drawer and see all these tickets…… Continue reading #TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat
