December thinking

In as much as the topic is morbid, considering the best way to manage funeral funds is important. Although for now I would not want to think about it so much. I have other things to plan, including our family Christmas trip. It is less than three months away and we have not decided whether we would be spending the holidays here or in Manila. The reason being, hubby might not be able to get time off from work at that time. So, we might have to spend Christmas locally, and just go to Manila after Christmas or New Year. To make the whole situation even more complicated, one of my sisters has not advised us if her wedding is pushing through this December! My other sister who is getting married as well is nearly finalising her dress, suppliers, venue, etc and she is tying the knot in January!
Oh exciting times! I wonder how my parents are taking all these, in less than three years they will have had: three grandchildren, three daughters marrying! I suppose these are all good news so nothing to be sad about! Just possibly shockingly exciting events!

Ah, what's time management

Since I started working from home, officially last week, I struggle to find time for everything. It is overwhelming! I suppose I shouldn't pretend I am supermom and try to not make impossible goals. Frustrating! Hopefully I get better at this.
I am both hands up to those working at home moms. It is not as easy as it sounds. Not at all. Log on time is pretty much anytime, and one is on call the whole day/and night!

Amidst all the work and home duties, I am wishing for more time to do things I enjoy... cooking, baking, blogging. Hmm, perhaps next year will be a better year to do these things. When my little one is older.

Missing my grams

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

My grandma is not as mobile as she used to be, and as much as I wish I could be there to wheel her around the mall or even just keep her company every so often, I can’t. I am glad though that she has a caregiver with her to assist her with all her needs. I know how tough and challenging it can be to work as a caregiver since I have close friends in Sydney who works as one. They tell me that sometimes there are issues with the equipments they use on their patients which just makes their job more difficult because of faulty fittings, etc. An NMEDA qualified dealer would have been able to assist, since they are able to conduct on-site assessment to custom fit motor vehicles to suit individual needs. Come to think of it, everyone would need certain things which other people may not have a need for. This goes the same for the equipments and vehicles used by disabled people.
Perhaps if my grandma was slightly younger and stronger, she would have been able to benefit from NMEDA dealers’ assistance on her car requirements that way she can visit the shopping center more often! Okay, now I really wish I was back in Manila!

Raising bilingual kids

I am pretty proud about our eldest being able to speak my mother tongue (Filipino). As young as one year old we taught her to speak Tagalo...
