Toddler Scribbles

The little girl scribbled this on a piece of paper. After which, she identified each as “cake, ice cream, lollipop”. Clearly, we have a budding ‘sweet tooth’ in the family. I asked her to write her name (not knowing what to expect) and this is what she came up with. She wrote the T first, … Continue reading

The Phantom

Last night was truly epic. As I type this, my head is still swooning from all the beautiful music that filled my evening. It was quite the sensory overload and it’s all because of this… The husband was supposed to watch it with me but since he was still sore and could barely walk and … Continue reading

Meet Katana

I know, here I go again giving names to inanimate objects. Sorry I can’t help it. It’s my thing. Meet my weight-loss program (lost 14lbs since August). Yup, it’s a new bike. Something that fits my frame to a tee. I chose the bike frame but it was the husband who added in the other … Continue reading

Puerto Princesa’s Unique Eats

While on vacation, I completely threw my diet out the window. I’m pretty consistent when it comes to choosing the food I eat. But I’ve realized now that once you throw in a vacation into the mix, everything goes Phhhhffft from there. I know that’s not even a real word. On the upside, I guess … Continue reading


October is fast approaching and that means my little girl is turning another year older. Around this time of year, the wheels in my brain are already turning as I try to cook up a birthday celebration that’s going to be fun, memorable and well-executed. The “well-executed” part is the events person in me talking. … Continue reading

Puerto Princesa – Day 1 Highlights

I’d like to share with you the day 1 highlights from our recent vacation in Puerto Princesa Palawan. This post is going to be photo-heavy but what better way to tell a travel story than through photos right? This was the little girl’s first plane ride. I was actually quite worried that she might panic … Continue reading

Close Call

Today I received one of the most dreaded phone calls ever. The kind of call you never ever want to receive in this lifetime. EVER. My brother-in-law called to say that my husband got into a biking accident and was rushed to the hospital. My mind went numb. I don’t remember what happened next. It … Continue reading

September Getaway

I know I’ve been M.I.A. for quite a while. I went on a much-deserved September getaway with my family. These were some of the sights that welcomed our senses. Any guesses where we’ve been? 🙂 My old blog post should give you an idea. I’m excited to share my travel stories but that will have to … Continue reading

Losing It

Contrary to what you think, I’m not referring to my sanity with the title above. When I started documenting in August my journey towards living a more healthy and active lifestyle, I can safely say that I am now reaping the benefits of my hard work. I feel more energetic and light on my toes. … Continue reading
