Mama & Nate's Weekend Playdate


My cousin, who stayed at home for a few weeks for her interview with the US embassy gave Nate 13 game arcade tokens. Since the day Nate got it, he kept telling me to go to SM so he could use them. I told him we'd have to wait 'til the weekend to go there. He agreed, but the next day, he would tell me the same thing again! lol. So, finally, we went to SM San Mateo last Saturday so he could play and then we'd buy grocery after.

The Story About a Broken Friendship


Which is more painful? A friend you had a serious fight with before you decided you'd just separate ways or a friend you thought was your true friend but suddenly disconnects with you without saying a word?

I think any "friendship break-up" (as I call it) is painful. I just had one recently and I'm still trying to move on from the pain.

This is our story...

Nate's Heartbreaking Hospital Experience



As I was browsing my Instagram wall last night, I realized I haven't blogged about Nate's hospital experience yet (well, I did, on a previous post but it was not detailed). So I'd like to talk about that today. This happened about a month before Nate turned three years old.

Nate does not get easily sick. However, when it comes to colds and coughs, we've noticed that he gets those easily. And these two are always partners. If Nate has a cough, a few days after, colds will follow, and vice versa.

Nate's 3rd Birthday Celebration x VBS 2017 Thanksgiving


Nate turned three more than a week ago, yay! Because it falls on a Friday, I thought it'd be great to celebrate the day after instead. When I asked Nate what he wanted for his birthday, he said he wanted to go to the beach. Nate loves going to the beach and pool, just like most kids (but he does not like taking a bath, lol!).

To All Mothers Around the World...


You who had mixed emotions the moment you see those two lines on the pregnancy test you bought at a local drugstore; 
You who suffered nausea, headache, dizziness, and morning sickness;
You who happily watch your tummy grow little by little each day;
You who was completely shocked the moment you felt your child's first kick;
You who endured hours of labor pain that felt like it was killing you;
You who could not stop those tears from rolling down your cheeks the moment you first saw your little one - 
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

WAHM Diaries: Nate Talks


Breaking the negativity from my previous post, I'd like to talk about our my funny convos with Nate recently. Don't we just love the kids' little minds? They amaze us in ways we don't expect. It's wonderful!

One afternoon: 
Nate: "Ma, 'di na ako baby e, youth na ako. Just like ate Juday"
Me: *Jaw dropped*
(Juday is one of his "ates" in the church)

Did Smart Pay Me to Bash Globe?


Two days ago, I wrote a post I thought was a heartwarming message for my son to read when he grows up. Little did I know, that post would lead to a controversy and would make others think that I am being paid to say negative things about a telecom - Globe to be exact.

In my post with a title mama's love letter, I talked about Nate and how happy and proud we are to be his parents. However, before that part, in a three-sentence paragraph, I mentioned that Globe was down in the area and that I had to use Smart so I could go online for my committed time at work. Additionally, I added a hyperlink on the anchor text 'Smart LTE' to direct it to the said telco's website.

Mama's Love Letter


Last night's a stressful day at work, I didn't have a stable internet connection since yesterday and the internet promo that I registered said that my data usage was too high so they would slow it down because of fair usage policy. This happened at exactly 9 pm (start of my shift). I had no choice, Globe LTE was down in the area so I had to buy a new Smart LTE sim so I could work. (READ: Did Smart Pay Me to Bash Globe?)

I told you I needed to go out and buy a new sim card and you asked to go with me. I told you I couldn't take you with me 'coz I was in a hurry and I needed to be back asap, and besides, it's night time already. You bargained and said if you wear a jacket and a hat, I could take you. I said I still couldn't but promised you I would be back as soon as possible. You ok'd and I left. Oh, Nate! You always choose to understand!

5 Reasons Why I Applied for a Secured Credit Card


I am one of those who does not like to use credit cards. Well, that was before. I think I was just too afraid to own one because I do not want to be like the many credit card users who ended up in so much debt, most of them were unable to recover from it. It is also because I cannot provide the requirements to getting one.

BPI Secured Credit Card


Today, I got my very first BPI credit card. It's a credit card like no other, lol! It's a secured credit card. :) It is for those who can't provide the requirements for a regular credit card.

Although the process felt like forever to complete, I'm happy it's finally over. For one straight week, I kept going back and forth to BPI San Mateo and they could not accommodate my request because every time I go, the system is down, haha! Lucky me!

DVBS 2017 Experience in One Word

VBS team singing a song during our VBS graduation
Our Vacation Bible School 2017 was a success! Our five-day VBS ministry was concluded last Saturday, April 29th and it we are thankful for God's provision throughout the 5-day activity.

During our last evaluation after the graduation day, we had everyone describe their VBS experience in one word. I was the first to share and with humor, I said that my one word would be "headache". I had a headache for three straight days during the VBS so on Thursday and Friday, I decided to skip and rest.
