  After a one-night love affair with enchanting Vigan, we drove towards Laoag City where we would be meeting Hubby’s college friend.  Our Tres Mikaelas, who are such mallrats, got excited to see Robinson’s Laoag (after travelling from Vigan to Laoag, they were dying for cold drinks and a fully airconditioned place); unfortunately, it was […]

  We are presently celebrating the festive Panagbenga season, and reportedly there were 2.2 million people in the audience for both Grand Street Dancing Parade and Grand Float Parade over the weekend.  My family and I had successfully avoided the crowd the past two years, probably due to exhaustion for actively “participating” in both parades […]

  Last week I could not help but laugh at the realization that there is actually a need for PAGASA’s “official declaration” that summer is here.  To date, despite the sweltering heat in the afternoons, there still is no official word so we are seemingly still in weather purgatory, neither here nor there, neither hot […]

I wasn’t prepared for motherhood.  My good guess is that no matter how old you are when you become a mother for the first time, no amount of preparation is ever enough to really prepare you for actual motherhood duties. I feel younger than ever, despite the fact that my waist line seems to be […]

How is the “execution” of your new year’s resolutions so far?  You might say, “Here she goes again…babbling about new year’s resolutions like a self-declared, nagging conscience constantly reminding her couch chatmates.” I read your minds.  I’m not nagging, rather consider it as a defense mechanism since I am finding my main new year’s resolution […]

How is 2013 treating you so far? I hope you are having a good start, and that you managed to actually take the first steps towards your goals for 2013.  The other night, while watching the news, I came across this report on “post-holiday blues” – specifically that feeling of (semi?) depression after the holidays […]
