Day One in Seoul: Garden of the Morning Calm, Nami Island and Le Petite France

Korean drama had the soft spot in my heart and ever since I watched my first one - Weightlifting Fairy, my eyes sparkle when I would start watching on a new series.  I never realized I had it in me, I thought Korean drama was just any other drama, since I'm a cry baby and I could never hold back any tear from my eyes, I'm just a softy when it comes to scenes that pulls on the heartstrings. 

Envisioned Kitchen Experiences with Tough Mama Appliances

In our time when you're building your home, you start with kitchen appliances, or maybe with a comfortable sofa and TV.  But however you choose it, Filipinos can't deny the fact that we love eating and therefore cooking is a next to living.  But choosing an easy cooking lifestyle can pose a challenge especially if you're confined on a budget and you don't have any idea which to prioritize to buy.

Duty Free Philippines Welcomes the Year of the Pig

Are you curious for what's in store for the Year 2019?

As the Chinese New Year ushered in last February 5, I was one of the lucky media personnel who witnessed the Chinese New Year celebration with a blessing at Duty Free Luxe.

The spring celebration culminated the night before and will be running for 15 days, so the Fest will be until Feb. 19..  According to Feng Shui expert Princess Lim Fernandez, the best way to celebrate this is in the company of family, friends, valued colleagues, clients and generally happy, positive people.  Fernandez is the owner of Yin & Yang Shop of Harmony, she guided the guests to Chinese traditions and best practices to achieve happiness and prosperity.

But what exactly is the earth pig, as for those like me who isn't Chinese by nature or someone who is educated in the Chinese traditional ways, this was the perfect means for me to learn a little about what ever fortune or misfortune is along my way.

This #Realmom Speaks Her Heart Out, Thanks BabyDovePH for the Reminders

Please tell me to never feel guilty for starting again.

I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I have wronged the family for being pregnant again.  It came to us as a surprise, I felt scared and wary at same time.  Giving birth to four amazing humans seemed I have cheated death that many times.  Now, I'll be dealing with all the pregnancy hullabaloos all over again.  It's so ironic feeling alone (but we are actually two lives living in one body, duh!), and how it felt so unfair.  "Can I hear Amen among the crowd?"
