I just called to say I love you.


Me and Lola Santa Clara, circa 2009.

In honor of Women’s History Month, I’d like to profile some of the many sheroes in my life. Some may be gone, but never ever forgotten.

Lola Santa Clara is my maternal grandmother. She was a religious, educated, funny, and giving lady. She taught me many things such as reading, writing my name, and to always take a nap. ๐Ÿ˜› I recall the countless stories she would share with us. She remembered when the Philippines was invaded by Japan and how she & her family had to hide underground. I was quite terrified, but very proud. I would also have to say she was super resourceful.

She was a simple woman who enjoyed word search puzzles, doodling, birthday parties, attending mass, talking on the phone with her siblings and relatives, and making a great salad. I also remember how much she cherished her keyboard piano with the programmed songs. It was a gift from my Tito (uncle) Steve.

Lastly, she was selfless. She had the chance to move up North, but she remained in the city so she could raise us. She never wanted to be too far away from her grandchildren. I will eternally be grateful to her and our grandfather, Lolo Maning.

Dacal a salamat po.

Kaluguran daka,



My week was awesome!!! I hung out with friends, went to Giants Fanfest for the first time in almost a decade (what?!!!), and a second visit to the Color Factory with the sisters.

It was quite busy, but I don’t mind. No rest for the weary. ๐Ÿ˜›

Some thoughts.

It’s been a weird week for me. I feel off. I’m dealing with all of this other stuff too, but it should be resolved in due time.

January just flew by. I am excited for this week because we’ll be celebrating Mom’s birthday! Should be a wonderful time. ๐Ÿ™‚

There’s rain in the forecast. I’m waiting for spring. Come on!!

We just ordered DoorDash. Lol. #junkfood But I’ve been good about my exercise. Yay!

That’s my small update. Will post my weekly entry later.

Good night to all.


#TBT: Beari Bear.

Picture was taken on July 25, 2017. Beari was 6 months here. Time flies.

She’s been doing well this week. Nothing really stands out, except she vomited today. It could be connected to her liver issue. The vet confirmed that to me today. Beari will be on medication. Hopefully it helps her enzyme count and we can proceed with her spay surgery. Going to wait it out for a few weeks or even a month or so. She might need an ultrasound too.

I just feel helpless because she’s so young. She shouldn’t be dealing with things like this considering her age. But it could also be due to her genetics. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

We’re going to continue to monitor her and keep her happy. I hope she’ll be okay. Go Beari! โค

That’s my Beari update. Hope everyone had a great day!



Selfie glam. Digging my lip color. Lime Crime! ๐Ÿ˜€ My featured image was from New Year’s Day. I almost didn’t make it because I had a full day on 12/31/17. Movies, shopping, my poor attempt at a nap, and visiting relatives.

New Year’s Day was fun. I didn’t take too many pictures. I was being obnoxious on Snapchat though. LOL. I was getting a kick out of their countdown filter. Once we got back from Colma, I stayed in bed to rest. Food was waiting for me + The Twilight Zone marathon.

I enjoyed what was left of my holiday break and then back to work midweek. It was a short, but pleasant week.
