Lights, misery and fitness

One of the things that’s keeping me sane and healthy is my recent return to health and fitness. A recurring theme in this blog is my never ending woes about my health and weight issues, which usually led to a lot of respiratory and reproductive problems. Following my office’s transfer to the Central Business District (CBD), I started a…

…buying gifts for guys

What it is with men and the fact that it is so hard to get them gifts? I am sure that once in your life — you came stumped on what to give your dad, your brother, your boyfriend or your husband. I mean, what do we get these guys? GUIDE 1: We all know…

I hope you survived the Holidays —

More than us surviving the so-called Apocalypse, as “predicted” by the Mayan Calendar, I think what’s more commendable is us surviving the insanity and Holiday rush that we all know too well during Christmas.

All I want for Christmas is yooooooou…!

Seven days before Christmas and I am unveiling my Christmas wish list. I pretty much stopped wishing and asking for a lot of material stuff, mainly because the Lord has been very kind to me–my husband and I. He has given me too much, and even answered some of my deepest wishes and fondest dreams….

Christmas + Manila = Hell

I’ve just been to hell and back, and I survived. If you don’t believe in hell — spend Christmas in the Philippines. Stay in Mega Manila and decide to shop for presents from 2PM-onwards on any of Manila’s biggest malls and shopping centers. If you’d like the “Singapore shopping experience” then head to Makati, to…
