Back to the Philippines after 10 years – Part 2

It’s taking me forever to write the second installment of our recent vacation to the Philippines.  But here it goes…. One of the main reasons for taking the trip at that time of the year was to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday.  It was…

Memories of summer

Summer came and went.  And what an eventful summer it was.  So eventful that I couldn’t even begin to sum up everything in words.  Not only were there a lot of outings and bonding activities with friends, we also got to travel longer than…

Moms’ Night Out

If you had been wondering what I’ve been up to lately, suffice it to say that I have been working.  Working on myself, that is.   Finally my children are at an age where they are not too dependent on me and I can…

Got Whipped?

I did.  It was Easter this past weekend. In keeping up with Easter tradition here in Czech, the females in my family were whipped by the males.  It doesn’t matter what age, gender is all that matters.   Here, my sister-in-law got whipped by…

Babies Bonding

These past few weeks, I consider myself lucky to  have been visited by good friends.  On my last entry, I mentioned about the Swiss family that visited us.  This past week, our good friends from Innsbruck came by for a visit. My friend Melba,…

A Walk in the Woods

The weather has been slowly getting better in our side of the world, so I took my kids out yesterday for a walk in the woods.  Why the woods?  Well, you might as well say that I am slowly becoming Czech.  The malls are…

My Pretty Girl is Pretty Fat

Perhaps the biggest advantage of being a stay-at-home mom is that you get the see your children grow up.  I am experiencing it now. My little girl is growing up fast.  At 3 months, she is now 6+ kg.   They say that breastfed…

Back from Hibernation

After a very long absence, I am now back from hibernation. Not a lot of exciting adventures lately, as we have been confined at home. I’ve had my own share of motherhood challenges, but everything is ok now. Things are slowly getting back to…
