My two friends and I joined a group of other expat-women living in Makati who regularly go for hiking day trips. This was my first time, so I was a little hesitant to spend the day with a group of people I barely knew, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I made new friends and mingled with them all the way up to Mt. Mabilog. Read more
Koh Samui and Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand is always a good idea! Together with a bunch of other mums, I just booked a yoga retreat in Koh Samui. I’m so excited to be combining the two things I’m passionate about: yoga and travel. Apart from practicing our downward facing dogs, we’ll be exploring the beautiful island of Koh Samui, of course! We’re also planning a three-day stay in Bangkok before heading to the retreat. No doubt this ultimate ‘’Mums Just Wanna Have Fun’’ trip is going be an amazing experience. I can’t wait! Read more
I just came back from Kenya, and as much as I wish I had juicy stories to inspire you to book your next safari holiday to this magical land, unfortunately, this time around, I don’t have much to rave about. Our trip was short and it was more work and less play. But inspiration or no inspiration, I can assure you that a visit to Kenya is always a good idea!
The highlight of my stay was visiting The Giraffe Centre with my not-so-little munchkin. Read more

There is something exciting about port towns that is growing in me. The beauty and charm of living next to the sea is quite enticing. I can already imagine waking up each day to the sight of boats sailing back and forth; watching ducks swim and seagulls fly; seeing fishermen leave with their nets and return with their day’s haul; and having the smell of salt and fish in the air. Each day would unfold like a carefully choreographed show, and the thought of it is enough to make the wanderlust in me dance. It’s quite tempting to sell everything, buy a boat, sail away, and live happily ever after near the ocean. That is, until I remember that I love all my shoes too much to sell them. Read more
