Dear 2021…

Oh, 2021. What a year you have been for me and Josef. It was mostly great, so thank you! January Because I had the chance to come home to the Philippines in December, you started positive where I spent the new year with my family back home. Fun times, laughter, tons of home videos, birthdays, […]

The 6ix

Ontario has started to reopen. The province has just moved to Step 2 of its 3-step reopening plan and people are just very excited to be out and about! A good percentage of the population in the province has been vaccinated and are ready to socialise and enjoy the nice summer weather! Josef and I […]

Random walks in the park

We live in the city of London, here in Southwestern Ontario. It’s also called “The Forest City” because it’s surrounded by acres of land and parks with a view of the city, built at the fork of the Thames River. Here’s a quick video with snippets of our random walks in different parks around the city.

The power of perseverance

My husband and I moved to Canada without knowing what awaits us. A leap of faith, as what we always call it. We left our families back home, and thought, “we are going to try and live our best life in this new country.” Our eyes lit up when we planned and spoke about it […]

Leap of Faith

I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to just get out, let go of the past and just start over. Almost 32 years of existence, I thought of finally just getting out there, and plunge into the unknown world. I am a dreamer. A passionate one. I need constant purpose and intent to […]

First ever vlog!

The husband and I started vlogging just for the fun of it. It’s such a great feeling learning a new skill. He is better than I am now, but I will definitely take credit for some of the ‘artistic’ clips and the directing of the video overall! LOL! So anyway, here’s the very random one […]

Impact of Workplace Culture

I’ve always believed that one key factor in having a motivated and performing workforce is the workplace culture. It is very important that an organization defines the values, vision and mission; and obviously not only simply define them and write them on a piece of document or post it on every wall in your office. […]

Busy working couple? Read on…

I have been in a relationship (now married) for almost 9 years, as of this writing, to a super busy professional. During the years we’ve been together, we’ve both been young professionals, trying to build our careers and excel in our separate worlds at work. To give you an idea, he’s part of the corporate […]

Preparing for your Hong Kong trip

Hong Kong is one of the most popular destinations for vacation and shopping for Filipinos. It’s just roughly a 2-hour flight from the Philippines, and with several seat sale options from different airlines, it really won’t cost you a lot in terms of air fare. We went to Hong Kong last year, in August 2016 […]
