Painting the Town Red

Painting the Town Red

Unlike most women, I’m not very diligent when it comes to wearing makeup. I have nothing against women and makeup. Whatever one wants to do with her time and her face is her business. It’s just that vanity and I have never been the best of friends. If anything, I find it cumbersome (as in, REALLY […]

Stop the Time!!!

Stop the Time!!!

There’s really no point to this post except to lament the end of the long Christmas break. Tomorrow the kids will start school again and I will go back to work-related craziness. How fast time flew! I will surely miss playing with Baby Yna and taking siestas with all four kids. Still, I’m happy and […]

Bring It On, 2015

Happy New Year, everyone! Despite having to endure the hardships and loneliness of being a single parent while waiting for my husband to finish his contract in Ethiopia, the past year had been generally good for me and my family. So many things have happened – both good and bad – but I will only […]

Struggling with Resentment

Struggling with Resentment

It’s been five months since my husband left us to work in Ethiopia and while the pain of separation had slowly numbed, I find myself struggle with something else: my feelings of resentment.

The Birth of a Baker

The Birth of a Baker

I have always been interested in baking, but it wasn’t until December 2013 that I finally started doing it because my husband was so against it. He is usually supportive of my hobbies. He lets me do the things that I enjoy because he believes that “a happy wife means a happy life.” It’s just […]

That Color Purple: Ube Cupcakes

I should be inserting something witty, funny, inspirational here before the recipe but I don’t have time to spare right now. Well, not that I have it in me to be witty, funny or inspirational but a friend is waiting for me to post this thing (Hi, Jo! :D). Truth be told, I’m not really […]

A Failure Yet Again

A Failure Yet Again

This I can easily admit: I really suck at blogging. Judging from this blog’s performance in the past year, it’s not a stretch at all to say that I’m a crappy blogger. Four posts in a year? Yeah, pretty pathetic! It’s not that nothing much is happening in my life, because there’s so many I’m […]
