Yeah, November babies were conceived on Valentine month, February. Hubby and I have 2 Valentine babies, beat that! One was born on the 1st day of November, the other was born on the last day! I know, extremes! So, November is a busy month for our family. We just finished with the birthday celebrations! My… Read More November Babies are Valentine Babies
For moms in countries where a nanny is a rarity, I am sure we all have stories to share on how we cope up with household chores and taking care of our kids. This is how I get things done: Kids (usually my Firstborn has the say) choose whether they watch TV or play computer… Read More How Do I Get Things Done?
Perhaps I have written about my husband’s travelling a number of times already. But each time I write about it, there is always something to tell because each time he leaves there is always a certain amount of loneliness that I find more and more difficult to conceal from my perceptive 4-year old boy. Though my… Read More Comfort From My 4-Year Old
There used to be only 1 toddler who loved to get into his daddy’s Samsonite luggage whenever we do the usual preparation for my husband’s business trip. Now there are 2: It’s double the fun and double the delay. But of course, we wouldn’t want it any other way… Happy weekend!
Have you ever used your smart phone for shopping here in Seoul? I just did and I went home smiling. Hubby gifted me with Shinsegae gift checks (**wink**) last February 14. When a girl friend learned about it, she was so excited to accompany me and she showed me how to use her Smartphone for… Read More Perks for Smartphone Users in South Korea
It took us longer this morning to go down to the lobby to bring Little Dynamo to his waiting school bus. The reason: Baby Dynamo was crying for his brother’s school bag. To put a stop to his waling, I also put on a little backpack for him. Not yet, baby, not yet! Mommy’s going… Read More A Schoolboy Wanna-Be
Little Dynamo has his own batch for playmates here in Seoul. I’m glad my children do not lack this important part of their childhood. But what’s so special about Baby Dynamo’s friend in this picture? For one, their mommies have been friends for 4 years already. We had been together almost everyday until last… Read More Another Batch of Playmates
This is a good year of friendship. I love our life here in Seoul and I love the people here in Seoul. For an expat wife like me whose attention and focus are on her children and husband, friends are a great bonus and they add spice to my life. It isn’t a boring life.… Read More Temporary Goodbye… Seoul
Mother-in-law was granted a one month stay here in Korea for her C4 visa courtesy of her “modelling career”. The visa was set to expire on the 18th. But due to hubby’s sudden (when was it ever not sudden?) business trip, we need her here at least until the 24th. Thanks to Jaz who sent… Read More Extension of C4 Visa
Mother-in-law is back! She is back with a free round-trip ticket for Manila-Incheon-Manila courtesy of her modelling “career”. It is a good story to tell – to her friends, her grandchildren, her grandchildren’s children. It all started with a phone call from Jaz. She phoned me one day asking if my mother-in-law was still here in… Read More A Free Rountrip Ticket
