Have you ever wondered if long distance relationship is for you? Have you ever felt so strongly for someone but decided to just let those feelings go because that special someone is in a different timezone and the fear of not being constantly together might destroy your relationship? While I am not an expert in long distance relationships, I've been in one for 2 years. He lives in the U.S. while I was in the...

Every Thanksgiving, I always say that I'm thankful for family, friends, and all those kinds of serious stuff. That has been always true but this year, to make it fun, I've decided to turn the spotlight on to the little things that I am thankful for this year. Hot showers - Growing up in Manila where having water heaters isn't a necessity but a luxury, I take comfort in the fact that the water I am showering...

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Bad Moms. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this movie, it is about 3 overworked and under-appreciated moms who are pushed beyond their limits and ditched their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence. You can read more about it here. I liked the movie because the story is very close to my heart, not because I am overworked...

I've been very particular with what my kids eat. While my daughter can eat anything (even unhealthy ones once in a while), my son can only eat the good food - no junk food, only healthy stuff. Whenever we eat something that's not healthy, he usually just stands there watching us - I know that sounds cruel but I just didn't want him to consume anything unhealthy until he's 1. That doesn't mean that he'll be eating unhealthy...

To My Second Born Child, I can't believe it has been exactly 1 year ago (already). While Daddy and I were on our way to the airport to pick up Papa from an almost 24-hour flight from Manila, you decided you wanted to welcome him as well; that's when the contractions started. I ignored them because I thought they weren't the real thing. As we sat in the arrival area waiting for Papa, the contractions became regular and stronger. I tried to be calm...

It was Wednesday afternoon, we just got home from work and school, my daughter put a couple of Minnie Mouse stickers on my arms. I got her sippy cup and asked her to drink. As she was drinking, she saw the wounds on my right arm. She held my arm and said "kiss". I lifted my arm closer to her cute little lips and she kissed my wounds, just like what I always do when she gets...

grabbed from Freeimages.com I have been guest blogging at BayArt and have recently published an article there. BayArt is all about bringing inspiration and happiness; and creating a value and making a difference. Of course, my usual posts wouldn't be appropriate there;  so I had to turn on a switch that hasn't been turned on for a while. This is the first time I have written something like this for years and I actually enjoyed it. Without further ado, here it is. I hope...
