half year

My son has just turned six months old, and I’m getting emotional (save the happy tears for the first birthday, momma!). Allow me to indulge in some baby-centric narrative. His first two teeth are about to come out. Bottom front. He keeps on feeling them with his tongue, making it appear that he’s sticking it […]

2pm cocktails

I’ve been staying away from alcohol since I found out I was pregnant almost a year ago. Now that my siopao is four months old, I finally felt comfortable with the thought of consuming negligible amount of alcohol…starting with refreshing cocktails I shared with a dear friend (and former boss!) at two in the afternoon […]

[photo diary] la union

Today being the last day of 2018, I initially planned to write a year-end entry with the lovely La Union sunset photo. It was taken May of this year. I was 18 weeks along, hence I jokingly refer to this weekend getaway as my babymoon. Thought of also sharing a bunch of snaps from my […]
