Colorful Outfits for Kids at Mothercare

My baby is now a little boy. I can’t believe I’m typing this but it’s the truth. While I do sometimes miss the teeny tiny Riley, his two year old (almost three) self has got quite the amount of surprises too. For starters, I always thought that shopping would only be...

Cooking with Kids Easy Hotcake Recipe

If there’s one thing that Riley has been fascinated about since he was a baby, it’s food. At just a few months old, he’d wake up to the smell of sautéed garlic in the kitchen. He loves to watch people cooking, be it his dad at home, the chefs stretching noodles in...

10 Things I Miss About Sagada

I can't believe I tried putting off this blog post out of guilt for so long! I just felt like straight off from vacation, I can't just sit down & relish my vacation. I need to get back to work. However, these thoughts still linger in my mind. I mean, 4 months...

The Design Process

Watercolor and Art Workshop with H&M Kids

I recently had the chance to revisit my childhood: all those years spent tinkering with paper during siesta time, playing teacher and volunteering for bulletin boards all rolled into one as we got to create a backdrop and conduct a watercolor and crafts workshop for...

At the Heart of Ayala Cloverleaf

We're grateful for the opportunity to spread our love for colors as we painted our third heart and this time for Ayala Malls Cloverleaf! I can clearly remember our first heart in Serendra. (Read about it here.) It was just seven weeks after I gave birth to Riley! I...

Hello Guys! Hm...So what have I been up to lately?  As I'm writing this, it's still Ponggo's birthday.  I've been very consistent with putting up a social networking ready birthday greeting but today, hormones just took over my life spending most days nursing the late...

I Think I am Tired

I Think I am Tired

When we're out of the country, Ponggo's the type who walks like a robot.  As it seems, he never gets tired especially when it's around 10 degrees or lower.  He'd be sweet enough to go with me to art supply shops & bookstores. He'd take me to colorful furniture...

The Thing With Power Banks…

I always forget to bring my power bank.  If I ever do, it's the one that I forgot to charge! I thought was the only one then I ran a Twitter survey and got these results: Apparently, there's a lot of us! *Whew!* Hehehe. I don't know why I do this to myself.  I'm also...
