    Weeks before the big day, my wedding gown didn’t fit despite dieting and kickboxing. To make it worse, the seamstress had to unstitch the back of my dress so I can get out of it. It could be increased muscle mass due to high protein diet plus kickboxing or my thighs just got crazy fat. Regardless, […]

  • Three Nails and a Tire

    Today was an exhausting day. I spent the whole morning driving from north to south to meet a client (I spent almost 5 hours on the road just to have that 45 minute meeting). Then this afternoon, I dropped by the laundromat to pick-up my clothes. When I got off my car, a man caught […]

  • When an Adult’s Childhood Toy Gets a New Life

    Before all my Barbies, Star Wars, and Doctor Who toys, I had this Tiggr stuffed animal. It’s been with me for more than two decades!

  • Usapang Commute

    Kung mayroong isang bagay na gusto ko sa aking trabaho, ayon ay ang matagal na biyahe. Sa totoo lang, hati ang aking damdamin tungkol dito. Una, dahil humigit-kumulang 4 oras ang aking biyahe pupunta at pauwi galing ng opisina. Isipin niyo nalang ang panahon na binubuno ko kakatunganga sa bus pauwi. Ang daming naaksayang panahon […]

  • Life Lessons from Lolo and Lola

    I always hangout with my grandparents when I have spare time. When I hangout with my lola, we just talk about current events, teleseryes, and AlDub. The most memorable bonding that we had was when she’s in the hospital last year. She can’t sleep so she turned on the radio and listened to old songs. […]
