hospital arrest

Apparently, we’re going to spend our third night here in the hospital. It’s our first staycation for the year, probably our 10th (or more) in the last 3 years. It’s a becoming family tradition which we are trying and praying hard to break. This should be the last one. Our youngest is sick – down … Continue reading

helmet diving in boracay, an OA account

Warning: OA account I am a sissy. And there’s something about the sea and huge waves that make me think of morbid thoughts. But I survived my first helmet dive! Hooray!

So much to do, so little time

I barely have free time. And during those rare times that I do have free time, I don’t get anything done. I want to do so much that I end up… browsing and reading celebrity tsismis at or reading Star and OK magazines. 🙂 Entertaining but hardly productive. It’s been months since I finished … Continue reading
