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...

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

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

That One True Love

Just after celebrating our own 4th wedding anniversary, here we are attending another joyous celebration of a beautiful union of our friend. Weddings always give me a happy feeling of seeing how couples share their love and vow for a lifetime commitment. I can clearly remember our Priest during our wedding, Father Amores, once said: “When the time comes you both feel you are ready to give up with your marriage, always try to remember this day, your Wedding Day.” ”Reminisce the overwhelming happiness of your love and remember the promise you made today.” He’s right. It was indeed one... Read More

Akyn’s Monthly Photos for His 1st Year

My Mama loves collecting family pictures and keeping them on a photo album. When I asked her about why she would spend her money to have those pictures printed, she told me that it will serve as our remembrance of our childhood. Those pictures will help us reminisce important occasions, family gatherings and other memories that we wouldn't want to forget. Now that I am starting to have my own family, I practiced the same hobby that my Mama loves to collect. I bought my own camera to capture those memories. I’ll be sharing with you my Akyn’s monthly pictures... Read More

Part of Us That We Will Cherish Forever

Before I slept last night, I gave my husband a random question for him to reflect about our marriage. I love engaging in a meaningful conversation with him because I can sense that he always take my questions seriously and he provides honest answers too. I asked him about his insights and realization about how we are in the past as couples and how it affected our relationship in our married life. He paused for a moment, trying to organize his thoughts. He normally does that whenever I ask him something. This was his response: MON: I’ve realized that we... Read More

Stop The Blame Game

I can now relate to the hassle that parents are experiencing in bringing their active toddlers inside the church. I felt pity for Mon who was the one looking after Akyn when we attended the mass yesterday. Akyn couldn’t sit still in one place. Five minutes were long enough to make him behave. His Dad had no choice but to give in to his demands to walk and brought him outside or else he would make a scene while the mass was on going [caption id="attachment_1129" align="alignnone" width="2592"] Daddy with Akyn attending Sunday's Mass[/caption] I was amazed with Mon, he...

Rules For A Happy Marriage

One of our wedding gifts that I like most is this wooden wall frame with a meaningful message about keeping the married life strong. This was given to me by my college friend. Let me share you a picture of it. Wedding is a one day happy celebration of the formal union between lovers taking their vow in front of God, but after the ceremony it's when the real married life begins. Marriage isn't just about the honeymoon stage. It can't be compared to the fairytale stories in books we thought to be real when we were kids. Marriage needs to be fed by the couples... Read More

When I Crushed His Soul

We had our first team meeting last week in the office with our new teammates for our new schedules. I am thankful that I still got the same schedule that I had last year which makes it easier for me to plan my vacation leaves. I just hope that I will still retain my current schedule for the next 6 months. Change is the only thing that is constant in our line of business and I have learned to adjust to it. Oh, come on who wouldn’t be able to adapt to it if you love your job, right? (sanguine mood) One... Read More

Akyn’s 1st Birthday Preparations (December 30,2016)

Akyn's birthday fall on the 30th of December which is celebrated as Rizal's Day here in the Philippines. December is such a busy month with all the Christmas parties and Reunion parties, that means we needed to book our suppliers as early as possible last year. I was the one who chose the birthday theme for Akyn (mother knows best). As you all know from my previous post (Akyn's Christening) that I had shared about how much I am into bears, so this time I opted to have Winnie the Pooh and Friends birthday theme. I'll share with you some... Read More

I am Here to Serve My Husband

If you apply for a credit card, written disclosures are provided to the customers to be informed of the benefits as well as the terms and conditions of the bank in using the card. When Mama knew about our plan to get married, she gave Mon a verbal disclosure about me and said, “Are you sure you want to marry my daughter?" "She doesn’t know any household chores." "She can’t even cook a decent fried egg?” I was expecting Mon to provide a sugar-coated answer but it was a straightforward response I’ve heard. “I’ll teach her,” he said. What a... Read More

First and Foremost

I am an avid blog reader of different genres of   blog entries. I like reading topics about DIY projects, discussions about marriage and parenting (I am a mother of a cute baby boy), budget travel and latest fashion trends. While reading one of my favorite blog entries, I was so carried over by my emotions while reading the story. Somehow, I felt connected emotionally to the writer. I then realized, why not start my own blog and touch peoples’ lives and share my own thoughts. So this is how it all begun. Let me share my love story as my first entry for my blog.♥ Me and... Read More
