A sister from the same mister :p

I have said that I grew up as an only child. Yes I did and I am…in my mom’s side. But I do have 3 beautiful sisters on my dad’s side – Tyra, Lyca and Bianca. They are based in Dumaguete so I don’t really get to spend time with them as often or as long as I would like to. We have gone on a couple of trips to Dumaguete for 4-5 days long but that’s about it. I didn’t really understand what being an older sister meant until…

Late last year, my 17-year-old sister, Tyra Angela needed an “Ate”…

A lot of people would ask me where I found our household help. I used to get from a particular agency but I learned that it is so much better to get from referrals from the helpers of family. Because I am a full time mom, I am able to observe, watch closely and train them to do work according to my preference. However, I also give some space to allow them to express themselves and work the way they prefer for as long as they get things done. I always make an effort to make them feel like they are part of our family and not just employees….

Ever since I gave birth to Michelle, she has always slept in between me and my husband. I breastfed her purely and directly for an entire year so I’ve gotten used to sleeping with her by our side. She is now three and this routine has carried on. Except now, she sleeps on her own bed beside our bed (Patrick’s side) BUT still moves in between us in the middle of the night. Patrice, on the other hand, sleeps in a playpen on my side of the bed…until recently, when she started waking up in the middle of the night insisting to sleep in between me and Pat also…

I think it was around August when Pat and I received an invitation from Kaye and Paul Jake for us to witness their “I do’s” in Cebu. We were so excited that 2 days after that invite, we were booked! I love weddings in general, what more if its someone close to our hearts! Pat and Kaye have always been close. They go way back – from “Tabing Ilog” days to many more TV shows that followed. Because of this, we got her as one of Michelle’s ninangs during her dedication and since then Kaye has become part of our family….

What a month this was!!!

There’s a saying – “HEALTH IS WEALTH” ……. and i couldn’t agree more!

This was the very first time my family including myself experienced getting sick altogether. It is only by God’s grace and strength that we were able to get over that entire month better… better than ever! Just in time for the holidays!

I have always believed that “PREVENTION is better than cure”. And because I am very hands-on, I can easily observe and…
