How July saved our Marriage

It’s a running joke between me and Jay that he put our marriage on the rocks because he lost our wedding photos, haha! And it all started when our old laptop conked out and we had to transfer files from the old laptop to the new. To free up more space, Jay thought it would be best to temporarily store our wedding photos in an external hard drive which turned out to be a bad decision because the hard drive ceased working and Jay had to extract the files and transfer them again. 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.

Bahay Tsinoy in Intramuros

I’ve been wanting to take the kids to Bahay Tsinoy in Intramuros eversince I’ve come across it on my news feed. We weren’t able to when we first toured Intramuros because it was closed on Mondays. Bahay Tsinoy can be found along Anda street in Intramuros. In some ways, it’s a lot like the Lights & Sounds Museum where there were life-sized figures that depicted our history, but this one is specifically dedicated to reminding us of how far back and how tight our affiliation go with our Chinese friends. I know it doesn’t seem that way right now, with […]
