Repatriation Blues8:04 AM
I was wondering why I suddenly broke down crying while I was walking along EDSA on my way to take the stairs of MRT Station in Quezon City. It was triggered by being sent back and forth to different government agencies just to register my daughter in the system after an entire week of endless struggles to obtain identity in my home country.
Travel Recap: Southwest Beaches of Mahe6:27 PM
|Anse Takamaka, Mahe, Seychelles|
Summer is not far away. Where we are, summer is synonymous to dry season, but don't be fooled because intense humidity will make you wonder what makes it a dry season. I'd love to hit the beaches right now but we're currently stuck with paper work and administrative errands. Hence, my days are spent taking public transportation and walking under scorching heat. So I'm posting photographs of the Southwest beaches of Mahe, Seychelles instead.
Goals and Lifestyle Changes6:02 PM
Is it just me or the days seem to be running like enthusiastic athletes in a triathlon? We're in the second quarter of 2015 already. This brings me to evaluate where I am in my goals for this year.
"Purge the unncessary and decrease clutter."
Yes and yes to that! Evaluating and letting go of things we have to part ways with before leaving Dubai was such a therapeutic experience. It feels so light! So many things can be accumulated without us realising it. We are presently in Manila for a temporary stay at my Mom's while we wait for the shipment of our stuff to be cleared and stored. The sorted items have been painstakingly thought through which we will need, once we find a permanent base.
Travel Recap: Rice Terraces of Batad4:53 PM
Stepped rice paddies as a honeymoon destination? Why not? Well, it was ours. After our wedding 9 years ago, we took the entire family with us for a trip to the rice terraces of Banaue. One week spent in this tranquil landscape , hiking and exploring made my family and in-laws happy.
There are many rice terraces that can be found in Banaue. Batad is my favorite.

As we prepare and brace ourselves for an upcoming typhoon to hit the Philippines this weekend, I'd like to share images of the eerie sandstorm in Dubai today. Strong winds in a brown cloud of sand.
