Enjoying Tagaytay with the Family on a Rainy Holiday

We didn’t have enough time to plan our Tagaytay trip. We were supposed to stay home over the holidays but nearing Christmas, we were dying to get out of Manila to breathe. That’s how toxic our year felt, haha! So we went looking for a place and after browsing for hours, found one with a wonderful view at SMDC Winds through AirBnB. Travel time was a killer! Jay frequents the roads through Tagaytay and anticipated about an hour or two of travel time. But because the holidays bring so much commuting woes (and because we took the bus), we had […]

Motherhood’s been a priority the past few weeks which is why it took me a while to blog the second part of what we’ve learned at the Marriage Boosters seminar we attended last February 21.

Bowling with the family at SM Bowling Center

We decided to take the kids bowling yesterday. We were at SM Megamall last Monday for my appointment at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) for my passport renewal and we had some time to go around and check out the new things they have at the mall. We found out that the skating rink has been moved to the fifth floor and on the same floor, you will find other recreational facilities such as Gandiva Archery and SM Bowling Center. Me and Bowling don’t match Jay had been asking me to go bowling for as long as I can […]

Bean heads in Baguio

I fell in love with Baguio when I was a teenager. The cool breeze and the smell of pine trees have always had their way with me, me being a hopeless romantic and all.  Back then I would always imagine myself living in that beautiful city, wearing layered clothing and walking the peaceful streets or reading a book while sipping coffee at a quaint coffee shop somewhere in the hills. And at one point in my once young and foolish mercurial mind, I though about entering the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) after High School. The only thing I hated were […]
