Mixed Mess

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like a Messy Christmas!

I still can’t believe there’s only a little over 10 days before Christmas.

Half of me thinks it’s too soon (wasn’t it just yesterday when I was preparing for Christmas 2015???), while the other half of me couldn’t believe it is still December 12. My calendar is almost full!


Just last Saturday, I spent my day in Kidapawan City, North Cotabato. It’s just 3 hours away from Davao City so I didn’t spend the night there. I came there for two events – my dear friend JM’s daughter’s Dedication Day and my cousin Kuya Jason’s pamanhikan. It was just sheer coincidence that both of these important events were scheduled on the same day and took place in the same city!

Off to Kidapawan City 😎

It’s the Dedication Day of my second goddaughter (and third godchild), Mia! She’s sooo purdy I can’t even. Hope you enjoy Ninang’s gifts!

Welcome to the family, Yvonne! 👯

Kuya Jason and his fiancee, Yvonne, are actually set to be married on the 22nd, so this pamanhikan was just for formality. More relatives will be arriving in the coming weeks so it will be a lot busier!

And during the day that I happened to be out of town, I got called twice by couriers, informing me of the delivery of two different packages. I’ve been receiving packages almost every day. That’s how my Christmas seasons always look like lol.


Because I was out the entire day last Saturday, I made sure to finish all the Christmas gift wrapping the night before. I also had to make a mad dash to buy a gift for my baby in the Mommy Bloggers Philippines gift swap, have it wrapped (I ended up buying a Christmas-themed box to make the LBC staff’s life easier), and then have it shipped. I actually already bought a gift earlier last week but I had a last minute change of mind. Continue Reading

Life as a Real Estate Broker

Working from home must be one of the most un-glamorous jobs out there.

…and there is even less glamour when you’re working from home while cleaning the house and looking after a toddler who never seems to run out of energy!

But I have a personal stabiliser: my being a real estate broker.

I consider myself an infant in the real estate industry. After all, I’ve been one for barely a year; I just passed the board exam just June of last year and got my license later that month. And I haven’t focused on real estate fully. I am holding a full-time job with Stay At Home Mum Australia and I’m loving my work there. However, when opportunities arise, I make use of my fairly new title.

My mother, who is in the real estate industry, too (actually, she’s the one who pushed me to take classes and take the real estate services board exam), likes to take me to events to expose me to the industry, the movers, and the people in it. I like attending events because aside from the exposure, I like to eat food. LOL!  Continue Reading
