Carving “Me time” out of “Mom-me time”

Being a mom is one of the most beautiful things that ever happened to me. I look at my kids and I’m still in awe at how good life has been to me despite the road bumps I’ve run into throughout the years. But much as it is a gift to be a mom, it is also one of the most challenging, most difficult roles I ever have to take on. When you’re a mom, you may come to find that most of your time is devoted to everyone else and everything else, except yourself. It sounds a bit selfish thinking of taking […]

Marriage: 7 Reasons why I love dating my husband

I love winning in contests and I love it more when I win something big.  The buffet lunch for two at Midas Cafe that I won from Not your ordinary mum was one of my biggest contest wins this year! Hubby and I were so excited to finally go on a date with just the two of us. These dates are very rare for us. It’s not that we don’t prioritise it, it’s just that it’s kinda hard to find friends willing to look after our three acrobats for a few hours (among other reasons) while we frolic by our twosome.

What’s NIU by Vikings?

It’s been such an extremely busy week that followed Blogapalooza 2014! There were so many commitments to attend to and tasks to catch up on. I reckon that the next few weeks will be just as flurried because the holiday season is coming up and apparently, so many people want to claim back family time during the actual season that all other schedules are being crammed before December gets here. It’s been this way for the past three years for our circles, at least. I don’t mind. For me, Christmas and exclusive time with family are a perfect match! Anyway, since I’ve been hinting […]

The housewife goes to Blogapalooza 2014

Blogapalooza 2014 was hands-down the most anticipated blogger event of the year, BOW! Seriously, almost everyone from Mommy Bloggers Philippines who signed up couldn’t contain our excitement. We talked, planned and prepared for it. Expectations ran high especially for the first-timers, hearing what fellow bloggers who had gone to last year’s had to say about it. One of the things I like about the event was that the venue was just walking distance from where I live. My hubby and I, along with our kids, frequent SM Aura, so I’m pretty much familiar with that mall. The good stuff! The good […]

Homeschooling: Feeding Guinea pigs and Bunnies at Ark Avilon Zoo

Taking the kids to Ark Avilon Zoo yesterday was totally unplanned. We originally just wanted to stay home and relax the holiday away, but the kids appeared bored so, at around lunch time, after checking out several websites on kiddie venues, we decided to take the kids to see the animals at Ark Avilon. If you have more than one kid, I’m sure you get how much time it takes to get everyone ready, plus, we had to pass by for baby wipes at 7-11, as I was pretty sure some small hands were going to get dirty at the zoo.
