Back from the Blogging Hiatus


Hello, everyone! I’m back from the blogging hiatus to say I’m still here and that I missed you all (naks!). Things got really busy at work and at home last December, that I was able to publish only one (1) blog post (Day 4 of our Tokyo trip).  I also skipped documenting all the holiday happenings here in the blog, something I was used to doing in the past years. Instead, ... READ MORE

The 2015 Year-End Survey


Thank you Aggie for tagging me!  I had fun (and lots of realizations) after filling out this survey.  Sobrang late ko nga lang natapos (2016 na!) but I think it's not too late to share this. ************************************* What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before? Swim with sea turtles at Apo Island in Dumaguete! Did you keep your new year’s ... READ MORE

TVolution Stick: The “Magic Wand” to a Game-Changing Digital Experience

Another year is about to pass, a year that has been so big to me (due to a major career shift) and which has brought me to new heights.  As you have probably noticed, I blogged less this year as I dealt with my now bigger role in our workplace.

Colouring for Mindfulness


I have to confess, the trend of adult coloring books was at first totally unappealing to me.  I mean, I have a lot on my plate already, how can I still find time for this?  Also, they're just 'coloring books' and yet they cost more than P500.00? Crazy, right? Since most bookstores have started carrying these adult coloring books (even occupying most of the display tables and ... READ MORE
