I'd like to express my excitement about my new business venture, Happy Shift PH! I will be offering mommy and baby items starting this AUGUST 2017. So, if you are looking for a quality, cute, and essential items for your baby, you can trust me with that.

I'm also open to take you to my shopping spree! Hahaha!

How I Found My Way to the Kitchen

Image
Truth be told, I'm a picky eater. I didn't like vegetables growing up and I always go for the usual - fast-food and lutong bahay from the nearest carinderia. My lola, my mom, and my titas are great cooks hence the pressure to know some of their recipe. And since I'm a picky eater, I tried cooking for myself (initially), from scratch, from ingredients I personally like.

I grew up with my lola acing the kitchen with her home-made dishes crafted from her inventions and experiments. I always watched her cooking but never really had the chance to navigate the kitchen until I went an independent living and... ahem. fell in love. Hahaha!

I started from the most basic of all... frying! Of course, there goes the kids' favorite - hot dogs. Then it grew to luncheon meat, logganisa, tocino, and eggs. Hehe. When I was living solo, I tend to eat at fast-food restaurants or ~posh~ restaurants alone or with friends. I outgrew every little menu they have and I decided to live healthy.…

How to Ace Your First Trimester

Finding out you are pregnant can be surprising and considered to be one of the happiest days of your life, especially if you want to start your family. It can also be scary because there's another life forming within you whom you need to nourish, accept, love and commit your life with.

So, if it's a positive for you mommy, CONGRATULATIONS!

We all might be under different circumstances when we found out we were pregnant. Some may consider their situation uncalled for and other might consider it an ultimate wish granted.

It is the stage when your baby will start to develop his/her vital organs (well, actually everything he/she is) and you needed to take extra care. You will also feel a lot of changes in your body. Some of these changes can be tremendously hard, by the way.

It is true that every pregnancy is different. It can vary from woman to woman. All our systems are deem diffe…

A eulogy for you that never was

Image
As every Sunday is a Sunday to remember. We all couch and get lazy at home and probably watch boxing matches on TV with Papa. Every weekend can be filled with ice cream or spaghetti, and of course, softdrinks - oh how can we forget?
For the past 40 days, everything has been so different. We are still not used to the fact that you are not around, well physically. And more, we will not be used about it all. They say, time will heal all our wounds and our longing. It can be lighter sooner or later but I don't think it will be forever gone. You will always be part of us and will always be dear to our hearts. No matter what the season is. No matter where we are and will be.
I opt not to speak during the time of your wake when it is our turn to give you a eulogy. Because first, I can't do it. I have little to nothing of strength to tell you how I feel; second, I should have told you this personally when I got the chance to do so; and third, you will not be truly gone from me, from…
