We recently hired a new yaya. She’s quite young. In fact, she just graduated from elementary a year ago. Habang nagpapakwento ako sa kanya ng buhay niya, I learned that she graduated with honors. Sa mga pagkakataong iniiwan ko ang anak ko sa kanya, I hear her reading books to my child. At...

I used to be the type who’d plan ahead and buy gifts months before a special occasion. Back when I was single, I’d go Christmas shopping as early as August. If I’m too busy and end up buying by the beginning of September, I get stressed out. I feel like I’m already panic-...

The Philippines is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire where almost 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur.  Because of this, it is prudent to have a first aid kid, fire extinguisher, battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries.

Accidents, calamities, the death of a loved one… all of us are vulnerable to things which can alter a life in one clean swoop. Recovering from a tragedy would at first seem close to impossible. Making the decision to try to move on is the first step. It will be difficult, but it will get...

The moment I realized I was pregnant, one of the things I was so excited to do was to shop for the baby. But it was only until I was 7 months pregnant that my husband and I made our first purchase for the baby – tie-side shirts. Being obsessed with lists, I asked family and friends for...

I am sad to announce that my sister has ceased to be Filipino. Walang tabo sa banyo niya. I do not know how I will survive three more weeks living this way.
