To the Man who has been There for me Happy Father's Day

Sunday, June 20

they say to find a great man to marry and have in life is a treasure to keep forever is real with you. it bothers you to read this because knowing our very imperfect relationship, it is still a miracle that we are together. you have endured so much to keep our family afloat and together from being our provider to our constant cheerleader behind the scenes as we create content for our followers. you have supported us in ways you can and ways you know will matter to us. you have showered us with your constant reminders and always showed us the true meaning of the word happiness. being married to you is yet another milestone that i will cherish and be proud of till this day but there is nothing more special than that feeling of having you as our daddy. you are the father of our two little angels and know that you are our greatest support and protector. thank you for always showing us what and how it truly feels to be cared for and loved immensely with no bounds. your efforts to bring food on our table and make sure that we live our best lives is our greatest blessing! thank you for all that you do for us, Pa! Your kids wish you the happiest Father's Day today. You are doing a great job! WE LOVE YOU







Happy Weekends!

Monday, June 27

Hi friends! How's the going?I hope you got an awesome Monday. Last weekend with the family, we get to spend a little more time and I am really happy with it. Our Ameila has been growing fast. So i took a picture of her with this fabric that I got. I love the design and I thought of taking a picture of her on it. The husband was away on Saturday the whole day since he was out for OT. Washing clothes. Doing the laundry. Cleaning the house. On Sunday, they get to bond with Adi and I watched The Huntsman Winters war. Guess what? I loved the cinematography and the story too.
 That's the photo. Not bad. With good lighting and a smartphone I can already take well decent pictures.  Hashtag HappyDance! I immediately uploaded the same on my instagram account. With the hashtags

Natural Living: Surviving Summer the Natural Way

Sunday, April 17


I know how you feel mommies. Really we are going through one of the most hottest days ever. Literally, it is like boiling water hot these days from where I live. Just Last March 12, I collapsed when I tried to balance myself from getting tripped off.

It was also very humid that day that when Adi and I went from buying some grocery items for our little sari sari store, i fell down as in like plunking down. My whole body crashed on the ground like a sack of rice. It went like that mom jumped off from her seat and papa to help me. I didn't know what happened. The last thing on my mind was oh God I am going to fall down now and I cant stop it.

the proof:
The aftermath: Wounds all over. Thanks to the Aloe Vera my wounds are now completely healed.
Here are some things you can do during these days.
1. Plant. and water them. Useful water can be waste water from your laundry. They serve as supplement to plants like Banana and Kangkong which are very water dependent. Aside that theses plants provide food, they provide oxygen. Start planting a garden will save you time from going to the market and money.
2. Wash your dishes outside. It is simple, used water from washing your dishes and kitchen wares can be used for sprinkling on your front yard or back yard too. Get the land hydrated. To keep water from circulating. 
3. Look ridiculous and wear sunglasses while doing the laundry. PROTECT your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun or do the laundry while its not too sunny. I do my laundry in the afternoon, just when the sunshine is at its low point at about 4 or 5 pm.
That's about it. Don't forget to stay hydrated and when it's sunny better take shade, lucky us there are trees and cool fresh air from the yard. 
But still, we take precautions. The hard part of the days are when we can't go out to buy food, so when the afternoon strikes we hoard and buy at the nearby market. It's also good to eat healthy and maintain it. 
Start wearing loose pieces of clothes are a great help too. 
Climate change is real guys. Stay educated and ready against the summer heat. 
Conserve Energy and WATER!

3 Things: The "then" Working Nanay that was Me

Sunday, March 27


Happy Easter All! It's been ridiculously 3 months since I left my day job. And boy oh boy I miss the things I loved at work.

my work station. i miss the pics on my shelf too
First off, you might be wondering about why these 3-thingy, I'd like to showcase a list of three things I find amusing, useful or memorable for the week, day or anytime of my freaking awesome life (just kidding) but yeah, 3 things to remember maybe on this blog. So, off the sail I go and start with this random shots from work.

I've said this over and over that it is been my decision to leave my job and be a stay-at-home mom or maybe in a couple of months be a work-at-home mom, but one can't deny the perks of working in an office aside from the comfy chairs and cool aircon (hehe)


 I really love to dress up and put on makeup. So there, I miss my (1.) freaking lipsticks! and maybe my cubicle but really they are the lipsticks in there girl. I know!(I don't know where they are now since this photo was taken like over a year ago). If you are a working mom like me who spends most time in front of a PC, it's my way of bringing life to my pale look. so hashtag lipstick, hashtag LOTD (lipstick of the day) was my thing way back then. lol! I guess, it was my weapon of confidence that I only stopped putting it on when I had my second baby.

i love this scarves to death. i got them at a thrift store here in Cebu

I suddenly miss wearing scarves, of course I can't wear (2.) scarves at home. It's a tropical country and most of the time it's 36 to 39 degrees Celsius from where I live. So, slash the scarves. I remember they were my sort of armor against the cold Conference Rooms, Training Rooms or whatever-rooms include the whatever-corporate situations you find me in. They are there. but not most of the time. Aside that they are comfort, they are a statement. I never knew dressing up was my thing before. I just was simply influenced but I miss wearing them on.

the coffee by the boss. some perks from working

Working is never complete without a shot of hot or cold (3.) Coffee, it just perks you up.

There are a lot of things to miss especially the trainings from which  I can only get from my very awesome day job. I have the best boss and job which I really love I just don't miss these things though: office politics, the toxic co-workers, tight deadlines and missed accuracy or call-outs.

There is always a bad in the good and good in the bad. We just have to learn to live the hell out of it to just SURVIVE. There are a lot of realizations yes. I guess I'll have another chance to do that in my next 3-things-post.
