Today I am faced with the harsh truth that I suffer from a yucky skin disease called eczema. It runs in my family, and having had ultra sensitive skin all my life, I knew I had it coming.
I’m guessing it’s a combination of bad eating habits, a shift in weather, stress, and my cocktail of cosmetics and beauty products that triggered the first spot to emerge last Christmas. Since then, not only has it grown, but it’s sprouted friends in other places including my face. Sigh.
Must schedule a visit to the derma ASAP.

My husband has just crossed over to the dark side. The very same guy who has teased me countless times before about my always being online and my being hooked on mobile internet has just purchased his first smartphone. At present, he is tinkering with the news feeds, the settings, and getting acquainted with the interface. Before long, I’m sure he’ll be downloading his first app, and I’ve got a feeling it will mark the start of a beautiful friendship between Mr C and his Samsung Galaxy Y.
Welcome to my (forever online) world, sweetheart. Hope you like it here as much as I do.

When my in-laws came home for our wedding last year, we really did our best to make the most out of their time in Manila. One of the places we got to visit was Ark Avilon Zoo in Pasig. Originally, my father in law wanted to visit the big Avilon Zoo in Rizal, but since we were short of time and the weather wasn’t all that friendly, we decided to go for the simpler destination instead.
It wasn’t the kiddo’s first zoo visit, but it was the first time he got to feed animals in an interactive environment. He had so much fun with his dad and grandpa, and this made me really happy that we chose to go. Thing is, I’m not really the type who considers spending time with animals as a fun weekend activity, and so I was extremely glad that we only went to the mini zoo. The nice thing about Avilon is that it’s clean and well maintained, so at least I managed to calm my nerves after a while.
I’m glad that the kiddo got to spend lots of time with his Lolo Bach while they were here. I know how important it is for grandparents and their grandkids to spend time together so I really hope we get to see them again soon, whether it’s back here in Manila or in the US.
