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.

The 2015 Year-End Survey

A Postcard Project


A few months back, I chanced upon this blog post by the DiploWife about a small shop in Berlin selling pretty souvenir items and paper products.  She shared pictures of the beautiful Berlin postcards she acquired from her trip in that shop, all of which looked fantastically 'real' because of the 3D-like effect. The idea of a postcard challenge came about from this blog ... READ MORE

Things that occupy my mind lately


A lot of things have been occupying my mind lately, which left me feeling exhausted these past few days (hence the absence of blog updates). First, there's this wonderful proposal to partner up in a business that I am very much interested in - jewelry.  In fact, I already have a  business plan for it, ready to be discussed with my interested partner.  It will be an online ...
