Forging on in 2016

Forging on in 2016

It wasn’t that long when we ushered in 2015 and now we’re bidding it goodbye. It came like a spring breeze and in a few hours it would be gone. It sure wasn’t the easiest of years for me what with the multiple dengue scares, marital troubles, personal dilemmas (midlife crises?), to name a few. […]

Gone and Done It

Gone and Done It

I hate myself sometimes. Well, ok, hate is too strong to use on myself, but it’s the most appropriate for the anger that I am directing at my person. I’m just in a rage of gigantic proportions right now! If you’ve been doing the Comment Exchange rounds via BC Bloggers since the start of the new year, […]

Ella’s 5th Birthday Celebration + The Baker’s Triumphant Return

It was our first gathering of the year and a double celebration at that! We spent the day with family and friends to celebrate the Feast of Sto. Niño and my Ella’s 5th birthday. Ella’s birthday wasn’t until Monday, but because we always spend Sundays over at my parents’ house I decided to hold the celebration in advance. […]

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. I know I’m not the first nor the last nor the only one whose significant other has “abandoned” the Family ship to […]

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 […]

My Dream Gadgets for 2015

My Dream Gadgets for 2015

I consider myself a techie, a person who is either an expert in or enthusiastic about technology. Well, I’m more of the latter; technology excites me but I’m no expert. I can very seldom afford them, but I look forward to new gadgets even when it usually means I can only read about them. Now that […]

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 […]
