Christmas Gift Ideas in Pastel Tones

It’s officially 43 days before Christmas! Where did the time go? It’s a bit of a shock to realize that we’ve pretty much consumed 2017 but we’re also thrilled because the holidays are always a treat. We get to bond with loved ones, eat sumptuous treats (a.k.a....

Ayala Malls Cloverleaf Mural

It's 11:33pm and I'm actually supposed to begin working on a new project due next week but I just can't seem to bring myself to do so until I've written all everything down about the past week.  I'm currently sitting down on our couch with thoughts brimming in my head...

9 Books for Kids & Kids at Heart from the MIBF

I wasn't really planning to create a post about Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).  To boot, I didn't bring my camera as I usually would. I didn't have planned shots in my mind. I didn't brief my family that I will be covering the event. *Woops. Now you know what...

La Union Family Roadtrip

I've been debating with myself whether I should blog or not. After all, I've pretty much documented on video a good chunk of our roadtrip to La Union. 🙂 Then again, I realized, I have so many thoughts as usual that I can't express through moving pictures. 😀 I'm...

New Workshop Format: Live Sketching

Baby Spamming: Happy One Week Riley!

Well, this is it! I can't believe I'm actually writing a blog post about our son Riley. These days, I'm always thinking "He's here! He's finally here!"  But, days before I gave birth, after ten months of waiting, the thought of having a son was still an idea.  I said...

5 Stages of Anger

The other day, I was busy fixing some quirks on this website.  It felt like such a chore.  It required me to visit most of our old posts. Anyway, as usual, I'd easily get lost and distracted and I would start reading older entries.  Some would make me cringe I want to...

It's the end of the year and I know a lot of you must be working on a new set of resolutions, some plans on what you will do for 2015 and how to make them happen. I already told myself that I'll try not to blog about anything else until I finish all my travel posts...

5 Arts and Crafts Projects You Can Do with your Printer

Being Inspired Versus Copying

This was supposed to be my post the other day but Ponggo told me that it was too frank and that I'm just begging for unsolicited reactions.  This time, it's not even about my work.  Sure, I've seen so many headless Googly comics online (i.e. comics shared and...
