Family Bonding at Hamilo Coast, Pico de Loro

Just before the merry month of May ended, our family had our last minute summer outing at Hamilo Coast (Pico de Loro Cove) in Nasugbu, Batangas. Relaxing on the stretch of Pico de Loro’s fine sand 🏖 was worth more than 2 hours of land travel for our Metro Manila-based family thirsting for Vitamin SEA….

Birthday staycation at Seda Vertis North Hotel

I just turned 33! 🎂😎 Thanking God for life and love. 🥰 I really wanted a week-long out of town birthday R&R, but for some reason I could not afford to be away for too long and too far on my birthday week. 🙄 The nearest to what could satisfy this tired mommy’s craving for…

Mother’s Day 2019: Letter to My Mom

Dear Mom, My 2 years of being a mom to Tash brought me back to your decades of motherhood. Somewhere in my sleepless nights and other mommy challenges, I remember a young version of you going through the exact same things I’m now going through. I saw you patiently wait for me to pee on…

Family Pictorial by Andrea Zubiri Photography

Most of our little family’s photos are not “Instragram-ready”. That’s because my husband just usually takes a quick groupie shot of us while his other hand is carrying our 15kg toddler. 😂 Well, because we don’t have a helper, it’s either we settle with the blurry selfie 🤳 or we beg a random stranger to…

PETA’s Charot play

Being a big fan of Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) after watching the popular Rak of Aegis play three years ago, I didn’t think twice when my sis in law invited us to watch Charot. Charot is a Filipino colloquial term that means “just kidding”. A comedy intelligently written, Charot gave me the dose of…

Riding the Gondola at Venice Grand Canal, Venice Piazza

Weekends are worth waiting for! ❤️ Whether in our bedroom or somewhere outside our comfort zone Quezon City, quality time with these two is a perfect breather.  Out of my 32 years as a QC girl (exagg, I’m definitely older than this mall), it’s my 1st time to visit Venice Grand Canal or Venice Piazza….

Like other young couples, my husband and I have many dreams for our little family. We dream of buying that dream house and saving for our daughter’s education.  We hope to set up a business of our own, travel more often, build a stable reserve fund, and eventually save for retirement. While dreaming of these…
