Because marriage and motherhood doesn't come with a manual.

We’re Having a Boy!!!

Tim and I were supposed to wait until early September to get my Congenital Anomaly Scan as it was suggested by my OB that we take it then after my Glucose Tolerance Test. But Tim couldn’t wait! Haha! Honestly, I am more cool about the gender than him, perhaps it’s because I have a strong feeling from the very beginning that we were gonna have a baby boy. Although Tim

Weddings & Babies

Tim & I celebrated our first wedding anniversary last month. It’s still quite shocking that it has already been a year since that lovely day. Cheesy as it may sound, I think my wedding is the best — for me at least. So many things went wrong or were changed last minute due to unforeseen circumstances but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Personally, I remember going to Greenfield District almost every night a few years ago while I was still working in Ortigas. Since it was so difficult to hail

Phantom of the Opera Live

One of my biggest dreams is to see a live production of Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera, and although I have passed by the chance to see Les Mis in 2016, I made sure that I didn’t miss Phantom. I am a lifelong theatre fan, and although Tim doesn’t share my love and interest for most of the arts, he still came along and watched Phantom with me.

WIFE. MOM. WRITER. ENTREPRENEUR.

Coming from years of being a singleton who's so in love with her career down in the big corporate jungle, marriage and motherhood doesn't come naturally to me. This blog chronicles my progress through this part of my life, all the while I try to fulfill my dreams of successfully working remotely as a Social Media Manager, Content Writer, and Professional Cake Taster.
