After 24 years

Next year, our high school batch will be the the Silver Jubilarians of Saint Jude Catholic School.  I can’t believe that it’s been 24 years since I graduated from high school! To prepare for our grand alumni homecoming, the batch core group organized a party-cum-planning session under the guise of J.O.’s birthday celebration.  It was […]

Married with kids: musings on Valentine’s day

When I posted this: Secondly, our kids.  We’re now having pleasantly cool weather which I’m enjoying.  But our kids had bouts of viral infections.  My girl even had to be brought to the hospital when she had benign febrile convulsions.  Thank goodness it’s over now but definitely not a good start to the year.  (from […]

Just a little out of sorts lately

January is the month of new beginnings. But in spite of my over-all optimism, I just can’t help feeling a bit jittery. First, finances.  December is really the month of big spending…and limited income.  You see, as self employed private doctors, we only get income when we have patients, and of course, there are less […]

Happy, but…

Every year, cost of living becomes more and more expensive for us.  That means that we have to earn more and more in order to at least maintain our needs and the (simple) lifestyle that we want.  We’re quite lucky in that we still get financial help from our folks, and we’re still living rent-free.  […]

You surround yourself with people you cherish. There is a lot of love in your life. You are thankful for everything […]

Not my day

A sprain and a stalled car.  Those are what happened to me yesterday.  Haaayyyy. I was crossing the street yesterday, when my foot suddenly gave way and turned.  Good thing it was already near the curb.  I guess it was because there’s a depression in the road, but I am not quite sure how it […]


Sometimes it’s so difficult to do the right thing.  Sometimes while doing something which I know is right, I get the feeling that I’m not doing the smart thing and making it easier.  Easier and smarter, but not right.  And in the end, my conscience still will push me into doing what I know is […]


So many things to do, so much that I really do not know what to do first. Shall I update my store first?  Or write the articles that are due?  Attend to kids?  Sleep? It’s so funny when I talk about it, but the reality is not as funny.  Sigh.  Maybe I just bit off […]
