Weekly Photo Challenge: Smile :-)

8 Apr

This week’s Photo Challenge is “smile”. The challenge is to post a photo that makes you smile or one that has a smiling face.

Here’s mine. My two-year-old, who has been feeling under the weather for days now. She was feverish for three days with a nasty cough. This was taken this morning while watching the movie, “Three Men and a Baby”. She’s getting better now and, hopefully, on her road to recovery.

Mobile blogging from my side of the globe,



Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

Oh, how I love this week’s photo challenge, which is an interpretation of a family.

My little buddy, the latest addition to our small family. Hubby and I are crazy about this little one. We are, indeed, blessed to have him in our lives.

Marcus, my baby, I love you.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

16 May

We see patterns everywhere. They make up a structure’s overall design, tying all those small details in to achieve visual perfection. They are desings.

In Barcelona, I had the chance to see aesthetic patterns in awe-inspiring structures and cathedrals. These are some of my snapshots during my second visit to this glorious Spanish city in early 2012.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

7 May

Taking photographs from above, seeing things from another perspective. I love doing so when I take (unprofessional) snaps of food, photos I share on my social networks. I believe by now, everyone’s doing it.

Like when we celebrated a colleague’s birthday at Khansama Restaurant last week, a couple of my colleagues snapped and shared their lunch on Instagram. Sharing, whether we like it or not, is here to stay.

Pots after pots of curry lined the buffet spread. They all looked the same to me, except for the food labels that were in Indian. Good thing the names were translated in English. 🙂 I helped myself to a serving of chicken curry, some veggies in curry sauce, prata (a flour-based pancake) and some fish crackers (or prawn?).

Of course, I wolfed them down with Coke. Who doesn’t love Coke?!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up (Looking Up)

20 Apr

Up. Look up and feel the greatness of the world around you. It’s amazing how towering structures and even nature could make you feel like you’re just one small being, along with others, in the world you live in. But then, it becomes an experience like no other, like you realise that the world offers you enormous beauty and a shelter you call home.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

20 Apr

When I’m way up in the air and flying, I feel free. I know I am blessed because I get to see the world’s most amazing sights: the sun slowly peeking through the clouds, the clouds that look like giant marshmallows or cotton, enormous mountains, tiny islands, the big blue sea and the endless horizon.

You don’t get to see these very often from this perspective that’s why the experience is incredibly refreshing.

When I fly, I am excited because I know I am off to some place I love. Like home (Manila), Bali, Phuket, Barcelona or Paris. New places mean new adventures, and I’m all up for ’em.

As cliche as it may sound and as the song goes, these are the moments I thank God I’m alive. Really.


Good morning! I am officially in Europe!

Chasing the (Monday) Blues Away

8 Apr

This is not the usual Monday Madness post. I’m simply blogging randomly, hoping to chase the blues away. If I were not doing what I’m doing right now or if I ain’t where I am at the moment, I’d be…

Chasing twin rainbows…


Lucky enough to catch this. View from the AYE overpass one fine night. (Singapore)
