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. We lost our parking slot. Our TV and aircon unit got broken just weeks apart. My kids got…… Continue reading When Things are Not Blissful

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

#InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Seven years ago, I named this blog Blissful Thoughts out of my wedding bliss. While most of my posts (especially the recent ones) were essentially blissful, there were still some which weren’t. That’s life if you’d ask me, in its authentic picture, with all its pain and glory. Not everything and not every day is…… Continue reading #InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Young Love Kilig Over Netflix’ The Kissing Booth

Are we moms and wifeys allowed to get kilig that doesn’t involve our partners? 😊 Okay, before you think of anything outrageous about me and in case the hubby lands on this post, I’m not referring to any guy I know. I got so kilig with this film on Netflix I happened to watch a…… Continue reading Young Love Kilig Over Netflix’ The Kissing Booth

Note To Self: I’m in My 30s and I’m Doing Just Fine (as a Working Mom)

Time flies like a busy fly! 😊 I cannot believe my last post was eleven days ago. This is an absolute setback for my blog’s traffic. Anyway, there is nothing much I can really do. I was soooo absorbed by the new (or not-so-new?) standards we need to comply with in the office. I attended…… Continue reading Note To Self: I’m in My 30s and I’m Doing Just Fine (as a Working Mom)

♥ Leftover Makeover ♥

Like most homemakers, I treasure the time I spend in our kitchen, whether I’m merely cleaning the countertops or I’m cooking a delicious dish. I love baking too! Back in my singlehood, I did a lot of baking. I still tried to bake when I had my firstborn but when I had my second child,…… Continue reading ♥ Leftover Makeover ♥
