After losing all our savings last year because of a setback, I have, ever since, learned how to wait on God’s will for our lives. It doesn’t literally mean we stop making plans of our own. Actually, 2020 is full of life-changing plans for us. The kids and I were supposed to fly this month… Continue reading Peace During the Coronavirus
A new decade had begun and I am ringing it with a short essay about our family paying tribute to our mistakes in 2019. We started doing this family tradition 3 New Year’s Eve ago where we review the past year through all the photos we took. My husband, Mike, would prepare a slideshow creating… Continue reading 2020
Ever since Mike left his corporate job eight months ago and tried to start a business, life has given us more lemons than we could ever imagine. There was all these constant worry about rent, bills, our children’s education, and my worst fear: a sick family member. Up until this point, I honestly couldn’t believe… Continue reading A Setback, Singapore and Today.
I almost drowned last year in Boracay when I bravely (I’d like to think I was) snorkeled a little too far from where our boat was. Mike was heading back but I somehow (and thankfully) managed to shout his name and he immediately swam towards me to pull me in and save my life. Ever… Continue reading We Are Welcoming 2019 With Nothing
Our kids are known to be on the slender side compared to other kids their age. In fact, there was a time where I would still buy my then 5 year old daughter, RyRy, clothes from the toddler section and she would be able to use it for a very long time which didn’t cost… Continue reading The Tale of a Broken Shirt
It’s a typical tradition for most people to make a list of their “resolutions” every New Year. But my husband, Mike, would rather call it “setting goals”, making it sound more like a bucket list that also goes very well with our family core values—one of which is being intentional especially to our kids. Mike… Continue reading Coron
Can you imagine a world without trust? A world where you constantly fear that you will get cheated on so you kind of decide that everything and everyone is just evil? Well, I did. I’ve lost my faith in humanity and I had to lose my dog to finally regain it. What I love the… Continue reading Lost My Dog, Found Some Friends.
I still owe a lot of you this post and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you another story on how to practically start homeschooling. Ever since I posted a photo of my DIY activity for my 3 year old son, I had a lot of moms messaging me asking how I do… Continue reading How To Start Your Homeschool
I believe things, whether good or bad, happens for a reason. We may not always understand why, as Alfred, Lord Tennyson once said: Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die. I was not to question the Sovereign God why did I have to come from a… Continue reading A Broken Family Does Not Mean A Broken Life
It’s the most wonderful time of the year indeed! But do you agree that it is the most expensive and stressful time as well? My love for Christmas rooted from the family I was born into. For us, this is the most joyful season of all, we start decorating in September, finish wrapping gifts by… Continue reading Jesus Is Born! Give Gifts?
