Blogapalooza 2014 is happening this September (and I am going!)

I first had my taste of blogging when Multiply became a hit among internet users around 2004(?) Okay, I’m not really sure because I was a bit behind in blogging and networking during those years. I had a Friendster account but I forgot my password in a matter of two weeks. Anyway, Multiply shut down and took all my pictures with it. Eventually, I put up my first blog, Raising a King, via Vox but Vox was taken down too, maybe because it wasn’t doing as well as Blogspot and WordPress.

Celebrating our son’s 9th birthday at La Traviesa Hotel Resort, General Trias

All I really wanted was for Jay  not to miss his son’s 9th birthday. We don’t normally tag along Jay when he has out-of-town training and ministry events but we both thought that it would be a good idea that we come as a family this time and celebrate Pablo’s birthday in the company of the ministry we so love. We were happy to find out that Pablo’s friend, Maxene, was also going to celebrate her 8th birthday the same way.

5 Blockbuster reasons why you should go to Movie Stars Cafe

I was so excited when I learned that I was given the opportunity to take my family for a night out at the Movie Stars Cafe at SM MOA by the bay on April 30. Friends of ours had a date there last year via a discount site but I didn’t quite catch the idea of how amazing the place was.  But all’s good because I like pleasant surprises, especially if it’s the entertainment kind. Having been in the live entertainment circuit for a big chunk of  our professional lives, Jay and I are very choosy with the kinds of entertainment that we go to. That, […]
