Restaurant Review: Kuya J Restaurant

I’ve always wanted to try out Kuya J Restaurant since I first saw its Jericho Rosales ads. Not that I’m a fan of Jericho, but I’ve always been a fan of Crispy Pata and I saw that they have it in their menu. I also liked how the food looks in other blogs, so I made a mental note to visit when I finally have the chance. I’m not sure if BGC already has one, if there is, it must not be along the routes we usually take. Otherwise, we would have eaten there a long time ago. The one […]

5 Online Shops and Services that Make Motherhood a Lot Easier

I distrusted online services. I’m one of those that took a while to warm up to them, especially to those that require you to input your credit card or bank details. Thankfully, geniuses have come up with brilliant solutions to my concerns with services like Paypal, VISA payment cards and C.O.D. (Cash on Delivery) options.

We wanted to raise our children to know Jesus and to adhere to the scriptures in how they live their lives, young as they are. We strongly believe that a child’s first 12 years are most critical in their character foundations. I have to admit that because our children have been closely […]

Parenting & Homeschooling: Music and Discipline

I have been silently observing my eldest son’s progress with the keyboards the past few days. He only knows one song, he just had his first lesson with his dad last Monday, after all. But he’s been turning on that keyboard several times during the past two days and had been practicing the chords without prodding and singing along with it. I try not to make a big deal of it, at least not within his hearing. He’s turning 12 on Monday and no longer appreciates being fawned upon like a little boy. Pablo has always shown interest in the […]

Taking Time Out!

It’s been pretty quiet in my blog email the past two weeks. The invitations to events have dwindled from less to zero, and sponsored posts have stopped coming. As a blogger, I know I should have been worried that this happened, but the truth is, I’m quite relieved. This is the way it should be. I’ve got one last client to write a blog for, but I’m going to need to find the time to visit their branch and register for their class to be able to do so. Other than that, I’ve got no plans on signing up for […]
