God’s Answered Prayer-Second Baby Coming

It took me a while to update another blog to my website because I felt so exhausted 😩 last few weeks ago. Reading from the title of my blog, you’ll be able to tell what good news I am about to share to you pretty Mommas.Yes, I am carrying our second baby in the family. 🫶🏼 We’ve been trying for so long to have another child and we’ve actually reached the point when we already accepted that God might have only destined me to have one baby in my lifetime. But then, without us expecting, the most awaited happy blessing... Read More

Cozy Mood

I am listening to the sounds of a smooth instrumental Jazz in Youtube with fireplace effects whilst creating this blog. It adds to the cozy vibe of the nippy weather today. It's spring but still feels like the end bit of winter here in the northern part of England. We started to get more sunny weather a month ago that gave me an opportunity to paint our garden fence but now it is becoming cold again. I can't wait for summer. It's when everyone will complain about how warm it is.I love the warmer season🤣It's hard to please the humans of... Read More

Living Room Sideboard Decoration by Mich

I have attended a funeral service for the very first time here in the UK yesterday for one of my Filipino Kababayans. We aren't close personally but I was able to take part of providing his care when he got admitted to our ward. May he rest in peace eternally and my deepest condolences to the bereaved family.❤️ To those reading my blogs, you know how much I hated big gatherings draining my social battery. However, sometimes we needed to get out of our comfort zones to show our support to those who needed it. I am proud of myself... Read More

DIY Champs At Home-Spring Edition

I kept on staring in our backyard to check how's our newly painted garden fence would look like. It absolutely looked so stunning! I am a happy Momma here. Although our finish output still needs more coat to follow but the current state now pretty looks amazing. I am just waiting for a warmer weather to continue painting. It's spring but UK's weather here in the northern part still feels chilly for me. I need Mr SUNSHINE so badly.🤣 We started our garden makeover last Sunday because our Akyn kept on insisting we should start painting this month. Alright then!... Read More

Tried 42nd East Bakehouse Hull

Two weeks of having Akyn at home during their school break allows us to spend so many bondings together. He's currently at his very clingy stage.Wherever I go in the house,he's there also doing something just to be near me.(LOL) This Momma is enjoying every bit of his clinginess! We haven't booked any travel plans for his short vacation just because we got to prioritize our finances.The fact that we've just paid our processing fee for my visa renewal last month that would mean we are still recovering financially. Got to pay those important bills first Momma! Welcome to the... Read More

Humber Bridge Country Park

With the start of our Akyn's Easter holiday this weekends, we are tied to our mommy and daddy duties 24/7. I always love when our boy is at home because we can spend more time with him. Kids grow up so fast and their needy stage won't last long. Many parents with grown up kids would always advise me to savor the sweet stage moment of my boy when he's still too clingy and too expressive to let me know he misses my hugs when I am at work. Time will come when they will have their own set of... Read More

Piano Solo Invite-Celebration Concert Cottingham

I still can't believe my little man got invited to perform his solo piano performance last Saturday,16th of March in Cottingham. Akyn was so excited and looking forward for the special day to come. Who would have thought we will be able to experience to be part of the beautiful musical event like this in the UK. It was our first time seeing young people performing using musical instruments like the harp, violin and the angelic voices of the children,too gave me goose bumps. It wasn't just an ordinary performance because the participants in the event were mostly winners from... Read More

UK Mother’s Day Plus Back Pain

I'm feeling a bit better now compared to the weekend horrendous back pain I had. Is this the sign of aging?Since I started working here as a nurse, my body had experienced all the ACHES🤣 I never had to endure before especially my back and my arms. These two body parts are the most overused muscles when I'm at work. Last Sunday, I had to ring in sick because of another back pain but this time it was the worst I had before.It was so painful ever! When I lay flat in bed, I can't roll to my sides because...

First Manga Book Owned

Good morning pretties. It's such a gloomy day today here.⛈️. After I dropped Akyn to school, I was walking alone entertaining my inner thoughts. It was already starting to rain a bit and the sky turned darker than it was minutes ago. Although the weather wasn't perfect as I was hoping it to be on my rest day, miraculously my mood wasn't affected. I felt so gracious for everything happening in my life whilst my stay here as an immigrant. The film we watched last night made me more thankful of what I am now.❤️ We watched a movie in...

Five Years UK RN

Let us do a time travel via blog post.😂Five years ago, early morning on the 26th of February 2019, I arrived in the UK with only 30 kilos of personal belongings in my luggage and a pocket money of less than a thousand pounds to survive my one month of stay here. I came here alone with no family or close friends to be with. How courageous my younger self was to follow my dreams, to practice my profession miles away from home, with no security yet if I will be able to pass my OSCE's( the last exam I... Read More

Valentine’s Day and Ice Skating

I've seen a loty of funny memes online when Valentine's day was coming like someone posted,"Those cringe love messages with big boquet of flowers,chocolates, pressies will be flooding in my social media account again!" I want to get real and would agree that social media posts can sometimes be to cringey especially those new young lovers openly overshares their sweetness online.😂 I think most of us had experienced those stage and once we're over it, we now realised that it was too cringey.(LOL) Been there! Done that! 😂😂😂 Regardless if others would consider posting love presents received as annoying, I... Read More

Trying New DIY at Home

Cold morning pretty Mommas.❤️ Second day off for the week allocating to update my blog page. I haven't done so much travel or shopping lately as you can probably see in my recent blog posts apart from the last Ikea trip we had because I'm saving money to process my UK residency. I can't believe it would this expensive just to be continually staying legally in this country. It's way too much to be honest for us immigrants to be charged with the current visa processing. We do pay taxes religiously,never had the right to avail public funds at all,... Read More

First Place Solo Piano Competition 2024

Perfect bed weather to those staying at home on a Monday morning like me.(LOL) Always flexing my rest days at the start of the week while most of the working class are starting their busy week, am I not?🤣Hope everyone's fine doing each of our own task for today.😘 We did a Sunday reset yesterday as a family. I never thought my boy would be so delighted to help me clean the house with us. He amazingly enjoys asking for a task on what to clean in the house to join the cleaning sesh. I was left with few things... Read More

Rock Up

Cold morning pretty Mommas. Winter it is, the time where most of us choose to be cozy and warm at home. For me, this cold season encourages me to finish a blog post rather than going out to shop alone during my time off. With Mon at work and Akyn in school today would mean I own the house this morning, free to do what I want on my rest day. Coffee + Wordpress + Britney’s music= Look at that! Using two screens just to finish one post!(LOL) This is Mon's workplace when he is scheduled to work from home... Read More

Ikea Trip January

Gracing the year with the thought of making our house aesthetically pleasing and trying to be organized by finding some helpful gems in Ikea, Leeds. After we checked out from our Clumber Park holiday, we drove straight to Ikea prior to heading home. The weather was so miserable that day with heavy rains and awfully cold. Thank you Lord for the safe trip we had until we arrived home safely in Hull. This little man spent the whole journey sleeping comfortable. He was still asleep when we were already in our regular parking spot in Hull. That showed how comfy/tired... Read More

Clumber Park Lodge New Year Destination

Happy New Year everyone. It's 2024! That was really a fast year for me. Months going so fast last year that the next thing we knew, it was already approaching the next flip of the calendar. Hope everyone is doing good today. I'm still elated with our recent family travel in Nottingham Clumber Park Lodges. I've been looking for a place to spend with a private hot tub we can use during our stay. Thankfully whilst searching online, a travel company posted a travel package exactly dated during my Akyn's 8th birthday. Without further hesitation, we booked it since October... Read More
