What’s wrong with my Hair?

Two months after I gave birth to baby Z, I notice that my hair has been shedding more than the usual. And it actually bothers me a lot. The volume of my hair loss doubled more than the usual hair loss. It even made me think I might be suffering from cancer. I did a research and it helped me not to worry much about it. According to baby center, it is the occurrence of hormonal change that causes hair loss more than the usual. These usually happen 12 weeks after giving birth. In a day, we normally lose about 100 to 125 hairs but after delivery, mothers might be losing about 500 hairs a day. Though it’s normal and therefore inevitable, there are still

Earthquakes: A Sign of End Times

An 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Japan that rattled Japan’s eastern coast unleashing a deadly tsunami that killed thousands of people, 5.7 magnitude quake in metro manila and nearby provinces, 5.4 magnitude earthquake in Mindoro Philippines, 5.8 magnitude quake in Afghanistan and the 6.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Myanmar and Thailand that killed 70 people where just among the series of earthquakes in just a month. Isn’t it scary? What on earth is going on? This series of quakes has been very alarming for me. It reminds me that Christ is indeed coming soon. In Matthew chapter 24, Jesus gives us the Signs of the End Times. At the Mount of Olives, where His disciples come to Him privately they ask him “Tell us,” they said,

To Take or Not to Take

It’s been seven years now since I graduate from College with a degree in Architecture. And Up to now, I haven’t taken yet the licensure examination for Architects. Two years after graduation and after completing the required two years working experience before taking the board exam, I have attended a review classes but I actually did not proceed on taking the exam due to some personal reasons. Despite of being an unregistered architect in the Philippines, I was still able to get a job in the Philippines and have given a chance to work overseas as an architectural detailer and eventually become an assistant architect. Now, that I choose to become a fulltime mom and will be base in the Philippines very soon, I am thinking

Traveling with Infant

I always thought that traveling with infant is stressful. But our first travel experience with our little one is the opposite of what I thought. Through out the travel time, he’s been behaving very well, giving us comfort and worry free travel. As long as you are prepared to travel with your infant, I’m sure you will have a comfortable and worry free travel experience. Here are some tips when flying with an infant. Take note that most airlines required atleast 2 weeks old baby to get onboard. Other’s allowed 1 week old with doctors permission. 1. As much as you can, choose a day flight over a night flight. For me, it’s more     comfortable to travel when you have enough sleep before and during

Little Twinkle

When baby Z’s Pediatrician heard about Twinkle, he thought it was his new found girl friend. Though they didn’t meet each other I’m sure our pedia will find our Twinkle cute. Twinkle is Baby Z’s first ever buddy. She makes him laugh and mollify him. Whenever he starts crying, Twinkle is there to tell baby Z not to cry. She’s been a good buddy and she’s always there to help mom pacify baby Z. Are you ready to meet her? Here she is…Twinkle is baby Z’s colorful chime toy. She’s been baby Z’s buddy for three months now. We end up calling her Twinkle because mommy use to sing twinkle Twinkle little stars while gently shaking the chime everytime baby Z cries.

A WAHM Wannabe

I have been a regular employee of mostly architectural firm for almost seven years now. Three years in Philippines, two years in Dubai, five months in Mumbai and almost two years here in Kuala Lumpur. And now that we have our little one, I just feel the need of becoming a full time mom. I don’t want to see baby Z grow under the care of a nanny especially on his early years as a baby and a toddler. I just thought of becoming a Work at Home Mom will give me an opportunity to take care of my baby, witness his milestones and watch him grow while earning at home. Hubby and my petite earnings online (hopefully it will increase by next month), have

Goodbye Smiles

Normally when we leave for work, Baby Z is sleeping. But this morning, just before we leave for work, he woke up with big smiles. We greeted him good morning with smiles and asked him how his sleep was. He replied with all smiles plus his normal baby talking that sounds telling us that he just had a very good sleep and a sweet dreams. So cute that it made me grab my cam and fired the shutter to capture this goodbye smiles. What a lovely morning for us, it made me sad leaving him again for work. Little milestones like this make me wanna pursue my plans of becoming a full time mom or atleast a work at home mom. I just have developed

Big Thanks

A big thanks goes to those who came on our little one’s dedication last March 6, 2011. Thank you Pastor Garry for officiating the said event. Bro. Win, Kuya Allan and the whole NCCM Family for the assistance. My sister for helping me organize the event and to all secondary parents, officemates and friends, Thank You Very Much! Above all thank you Lord for the privilege of dedicating a child to You. I believe that children are gift from God. And the Bible said so, “children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Psalms 127:3. As a believer, we are to recognize that children first and foremost belong to God. This is the reason why it is important

Obedience to Ponder

Everyone was taught to be obedient, at our house, school, church and even in our workplace. As a child it is our duty to obey and as we grow, we learn to rationalize. It’s always easy to advice people to obey, but the hard part is when you put yourself on that situation and you were told to obey…and even harder is to put that into action. Recently, something had lead me to a realization that obeying is merely giving up your desires, your plans, your thoughts and even your character to something that’s obviously better than yours. It was the act of accepting and believing that someone up there is better than you. It was turning down your ego, accepting and believing that you

Getting Ready for Baby Z’s Dedication

On his third month, baby Z will be dedicated to Christ. He just had his third immunization today. He started sucking his thumb and baby talking before he turns three months. Another addition to his little milestone. Just before the day end, we made sure that everything is ready for tomorrow's event. And since he had his shots this morning I am glad that he didn't had a fever. He's been brave enough for the past three immunization. And its good that he never feels sick everytime he receives shots. Everything is set. And i thank my sister for helping me organize the simple event.

Shopping for our Tiny Box

It’s been more than a year since we acquired our two bedroom condo unit somewhere in the city. We call it our tiny box since it's not that huge. Up to now, it is still bare and unoccupied since we are based in Kuala Lumpur. By second week of March, we will be going home for a vacation. I thought of buying some stuff that I could bring home for this tiny box of ours. So right after work, hubby and I went for a home shopping. It’s been a long while since we had our last home shopping. Since curtains, beddings and rugs are cheaper here, I decided to grab those items for home. I just love shopping for curtains here in KL for
