I was approaching my 4th year in BS Industrial Engineering when my late paternal grandfather told me the message from my dad “Di ka daw muna mapapag-aral sa susunod na sem. Uuwi na si daddy mo. Wala na syang trabaho.” I was literally crying the moment I heard those words. We were at my tita’s house that time. I knew it was hard for my dad to break the bad news straight up that’s why he asked his father to do it for him.
I didn’t ask a question though because I have seen how much my dad has struggled in the past months trying to make the ends meet to support my schooling. I had a choice to continue and self support my needs but I opted not to. My family needed food and other necessities to survive. What I had in mind was “No hard feelings”. I can continue anytime I want, whenever I already can. I called my closest college friends and broke the bad news. They gladly took it the positive way which gave me hope not to continue as how it was.
Few days later, I found myself in front of a British Employer, in a job interview. Read more »

I have not been feeling well for the past days and thought I’d pass this weekend to our artwork day, but Deye won’t spare me. I just couldn’t think of something. I told Deye to give me a few minutes and see if I can come up to something. I, then, went to the terrace to actually get some fresh air but ended up picking a small guava leaf and thought of something for this week’s artwork!

If there’s one thing a working mom would love to have is a much needed break with her family after a long day of working, a never ending discussion with her boss and sleepless nights with a sick baby. But that just don’t happen overnight. It needs proper timing and budget. Most especially, the place should also be child-friendly and perfect for a family.
While I dream on having a grand vacation with my family overseas, I took the liberty of browsing the net and see if I can find a perfect place for us, in case this dream pushes through. Read more »

I am an early riser, no matter how exhausted I was the previous day, even if I partied all night with work colleagues and cousins, if I had to finish some online tasks or I need to be awake because my girls are sick, I still get up at 5am on working days. On weekends, I only get lucky to stay in bed up to 10am if my mom takes my youngest to their house and sleep over.
At times, I really think it’s about aging. I noticed that people who are a lot older than me wake up as early as 4am. Oh well, I have been like this since. Most of the time, I get up before my alarm clock strikes at the set time.
