Me & My Dad Camp: Why dads should take their kids camping

I had a quiet two days last week. My husband, Jay, took the two younger kids to the annual Me & My Dad Camp event with our church. The venue was in Clearwater Resort, Clark Freeport in Pampanga. It was really just an overnight event, but since my husband was a member of the staff, he had to go to the site a day earlier to help out in the preparations before all the dads and their kids who were joining arrived. I appreciated the silence and the company of our 13-year old, Pablo, who mainly kept to his books […]

The BEST Mother’s Day Gift I have received….EVER!

How did you spend Mother’s day? Me, I spent it alone in the house and sleeping for hours. Yep, that’s how good my day was. And it was the best Mother’s day gift I’ve received ever! How did I manage to get it? I asked for it. I celebrated my birthday a few days ago. We usually celebrate it with dinner or lunch as a family, and we did so a couple of days later. But on my actual birthday, I asked Jay to take our 10-year old to his musical theater workshop. I told him to take the two […]

How we lost our wedding photos There […]

Home Dating with the Hubby

I love spending time with my husband. He’s my most favorite companion in the world. Not that I can live without friends (only some of them, LOL!), but my favorite moments are the ones I get to spend with Jay. Jay and I try our best to set time for our dates, but it seems a little challenging for us in our current season, especially that we don’t have a nanny to look after our kids. But you know, I’m proud of us because we’ve figured out creative ways to ”date” even when the children are around. One of these […]

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 […]
