Important Things I learned from Childhood 07:04
If there would be lessons that has made an impact in my life and somehow contributed to my core values today, those were learned during my childhood. Just like everyone else, we had experience childhood. Nobody will get to his or her age without becoming a child for once in this lifetime. I can't say that i had the perfect nonage, but neither do i had a worst one. I had a normal and pretty good share of childhood memories and experiences that i treasure a lot. And I've always been so grateful because i am blessed to have a solid family foundation- my parents who had instill good moral values when i was a child.
More than the values they've taught me, i am thankful for the life experiences that they allowed me to face, it has shaped my character and has taken me to places that i never thought i'd be. And now that i am a Mom, I'd like to pass on these values and life lessons i learned from my childhood to my offspring and to all the children and my co-parents as well.

To any moms, or possibly to anyone in general—whether a yuppie taking responsibilities in her new apartment, a dad in charge of the house for the day, or the teenager designated to do the chores over the weekend—laundry day remains to be the day most people would rather skip. With piles and piles of clothes waiting to be washed, it can truly be overwhelming.
One of my resolutions for the year is to read more and surf less. I've been putting this thing on my yearly resolution but i always fail. I'd like to believe that it's normal for the kind of work i have right now- taking reading out of the equation. However, reading has always been my favorite thing to do. I read because i love reading and i love books apart from the knowledgeable take aways i get from it. And when i don't read, it makes me feel dull and empty. While e-books are much more convenient nowadays, still, nothing beats the feeling of holding a real book, turning pages, and the smell of it. Bookworms can relate to this, yeah?
Why hello there! This is supposedly a year-ender post which i forgot to publish because i am so lacking with time that the hustle of the new year preps consumed me and so here i am today contemplating if i would still be publishing this overdue year-end post or not. But i decided yes, i should! There's just sooo many good things that happened in 2016 along with some minor struggles and challenges too which has taught me valuable lessons. So, just let me share the good side of my previous year to spark positivity for this new year and i hope you'll find this inspiring and entertaining.
Being a true blue Southerner, i could say that the thriving Filinvest City in Alabang is probably one of our favorite go-to escape when we needed to shop, eat fancy or perhaps stay the night away to spoil ourselves with the most needed rest and relaxation. Weeks before my birthday my husband's asking what's my plan. And i said, all i ever wanted for my birthday was to REST and to shop (a little) for the holidays for the kids and our family as well. I was looking at my bucket list and was contemplating if we should to go back to Crimson Hotel which is my favorite, or perhaps try other hotels on the list, until i came across Somerset which was the newest in the area. So, there we agreed to book a room for my birthday.
With the unbridled congestion of the metro and the widespread contamination of our surroundings these days, i would sometimes pray for the abundance of old-fashioned things like fresh air, sunshine and farm lots. Why not? Perhaps, its the most luxurious boon that i can give to myself so i could breath obliviously. Well, talking about fresh air, on one of my occasional explorations, I've discovered a ranch house turned cafe somewhere in the sleepy town of Taal, Batangas where lush greenery and a breath of fresh air was very ordinary.

‘Tis the season to shop ‘til you drop and be jolly! Isn’t it? I hope you all have completed your gifts or at least half way done ticking it down one by one. For those who hadn’t completed it yet and still adding one at a time, fret not, 'coz the holiday season isn’t over yet until new year! Hahaha!
Have you noticed that fashion trends are repetitive? Looking back at photos of my mom in the 60's and 70's, I've seen quite a number of wide leg pants that she used to wear during her youth days. Not the flared jeans or bell bottom pants but those loose, flowing and stylish pants that are just so pretty like maxi skirts. Palazzo pants are head-turner these days and they are just gorgeous!
