I'm back

Hello everyone!

It has been quite a time since my last post. I have been MIA for a long time.


Well, in the last several weeks I have been busy preparing everything for our trip here in Doha, Qatar. Yes, we're finally here just last Thursday. It was more than nine hours journey from Manila. Just imagine how tiring it was! But not for my little girl as she seemed to really enjoyed the trip. I have experienced air sickness and it took me a while to really feel "normal" again, unlike my daughter who didn't showed any sign of air sickness.

Sign of aging, huh?

First time, that is!

By the way, we left Manila 10:45 am and we arrived at Doha around 3:40 pm (time here, we're 5 hours delayed) but hubby said our flight was delayed for 15 minutes, I am not aware of that though!

Hot weather welcomed us from a not too hustle and bustle city of Doha. Well, that's just my initial observation. It's too quiet compared to the cities back in Manila.

Well, gonna write about living here in Doha in the coming days.

As of now, I'm enjoying my free time before doing my daily chores. The time here is 7:24 am, and I'm up since 4:00 am to prepare meal for hubby. And he's out for work now....

Pretty Yellow


Yay! So I missed several days of posting here...

Well, there are times I want a sacred space and to be alone. Sometimes, I lack inspiration or motivation especially on posting photos which I really love to do.

Somewhere (hmm.. heart or brain?) in me wants to do something, but I'm still figuring what it is until now.

Sad. Lonely. That's what I feel.

Or maybe....

Withering Beauty

Macro Flowers Saturday badge 1


Took this one late afternoon at the back of our house. I love the color and the reflection. For me this is one relaxing sight that I always love to watch.

I Need a Replacement

One thing I learned from motherhood is that high heels and babies don't go together. I don't know if all Moms would agree to that.

I could not remember the last time I wore sexy shoes like that, but I did when I really need to. Wearing high heeled shoes is something I could not bring myself to do. Its because I'm not comfortable. End of explanation.

I'm more on flats and flip flops. 

The main point here is my ever favorite sandals (Sanuk ) is going to retire soon. The most comfortable pair of sandals that I have (the only one).


Yes, I need to replace it hopefully soon...

Beautiful White

Love is Sacrifice

Jesus showed us what really love is.


Now I wonder if I am capable of that too, loving by sacrificing...

I'm praying that God will give me wisdom to understand everything what is happening in my life. I trust Him more than anything. I am really praying He will heal my broken heart.  I will keep my faith and stay strong whatever I am in now.

If God is showing me that love is to sacrifice my own happiness for the sake of others, then I am asking God to help me with it.....

Benefits of Facial Treatments

I claim to have the ugliest skin. Zits are popping out regularly. I have a sensitive oily skin and that makes my problem more serious. I have to consider two things, my oily skin and the emerging pimples all over my face.

How do I ever get rid of those unwanted elements on my face?

I used to visit skin clinics before but I stopped suddenly because almost always I became too lazy especially applying those beauty products religiously.

But out of whim, I went to Let's Face It early today. Been planning to get my face back to treatment because it looks terrible already. So yeah, I hope I could be able to fight laziness this time. Anyhoo, I got my face cleaned and treated. After 3 hours (it took me that long, that means my face is seriously what? name it!lol) of patiently fighting the urge to stop the session because the pain was becoming unbearable but I decided to go on anyway, it felt so light. And I loved it!

I've learned that facial treatments depend on what skin problem you have or what you are looking for. Some treatments are designed to deep-clean the skin and offers moisturizing benefits. Facials, face packs and other facial procedures help to cleanse the skin caused by pollution, grease and dirt. It reduces the amount of sebum thus avoiding skin problems such as acne and blackheads. Facial cleansing open the pores of the skin, removes  dead skin and toxins and clean the surface of the skin.

One of the benefits of getting a facial treatment is it helps to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells.It also offers a soothing relaxation and a good feeling. And most importantly, it also slow down the skin aging process and offers a youthful, supple skin.
