Starting Over

Hello Gorgeous Reader!


Have you ever felt “information overload” before? Well I’m pretty much experiencing “life overload”. That’s when life unfolds too fast and all you can do is watch.

I feel like my life has spun 360 in the past year. Home is not what it used to be. My family is bigger that it was. My job is less challenging than what I used to do. Priorities change. And I have changed a lot.


(I got a new haircut ^_^)

I never imagined I’d be who I am now. A “desperate housewife” (LOL) living in a quite (too quiet) suburban neighborhood, doing chores, cooking (seriously?!) and counting the days ‘till I deliver this baby (yup, I’m pregnant) and finally get to have some company in this miniature of a house.

It’s totally different from being surrounded by people all the time at work, reaching quotas, and passing quality audits. Crashing into my bed after work and not having to think about what too cook for breakfast the next day because my mom will have breakfast served by the time I rush back to work and forgo breakfast altogether.

I miss the past and I’m too excited for the future; which kind of makes the “here and now” such a blur.

Sure, my life right now is killing me with boredom but there are perks too; like enough time to sleep, watching TV (I haven’t done that for ages), kitchen experiments, and feeling tickled pink whenever I welcome my husband home from work.

That being said, tons of things happened since my last blog and I’m hoping that I could start over; that I could overcome laziness and get myself into writing blogs again. But where to start?   Crying face


  1. Hi sweety, so great to hear from you! Your new haircut look so pretty. So thrilled to hear your exciting pregnancy news, hope you are keeping well!

    1. Hi sam! ^_^ my life is a total roller-coaster lately... now I just envy all the beautiful clothes in you blog that I can't wear with this bump LOL

      thanks for dropping by, your comments always make me smile ^_______^ have a great day!

  2. Start with something interesting. When I first started my blog I think I opened with a lung surgery or something? Or was it how I met my first serious girlfriend?

    Either way, if someone was talking about it, would you want to read it? That's how I decide whether a story is worth sharing.

    1. Thanks! that's actually a great advice. Your blogs are always interesting. You can turn the worst of luck into the funniest story LOL I just wish I could write like that ^_^

      have a great day!

  3. congrats sis, you're pregnant na! blog more often... :)

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
