Blessings you pray for • You do get but may not see • Disguised, probably.
Do you ever feel guilty about being blessed? How often do you board the train that takes you on a guilt-trip? For Catholics, guilt comes easy. For an Asian Catholic, guilt comes even more easily. I am an Asian Catholic. It is expected that I will sometimes write about guilt as I did a little…… Continue reading What is your bottom line?
‘Settle in El Paso’ has this post about achieving financial freedom. I understand how it makes a whole lot of sense to so many people. It talks about using the 50-15-5 rule. Saving for the future is a huge part of it, but spending below your means is the heart of it, I suppose. The…… Continue reading On being blessed: guilt and gratitude
Diamonds couldn’t be my best friends. I didn’t have the fortune to afford them and the men in my life were less fortunate so they couldn’t give me diamonds either. The lack of fortune still holds true. Luckily, I am not crazy about jewels. I’d take them if they are there for the taking but…… Continue reading A girl’s best friends
I am utterly piqued by people’s impertinence. Soon, I can officially say that my nerves are shot. It’s not that I’d like that. Not even for some dramatic effect, no!

This is that moment! Life surprised me a little (with unexpected hypertension despite being fully aware…… Continue reading Expressing appreciation
This is a copy of my post on Food | Travel | Tour but slightly modified to suit this blog I am saying goodbye to a year that has not been fabulous. Heck! The year had not been good. In fact, for many of us, it had been taxing, challenging, tough, sad, awful, and so…… Continue reading 2016, in retrospect
I wasn’t going to post tonight/today so I could sleep early. I don’t always follow the plan. I do sometimes. Having a full time job means I write, prepare/edit pictures and read [your] posts in the evening – before, in between or after spending time with my little princess, supper, doing dishes, tidying up the…… Continue reading Gratitude
To all of you my dearest blogging friends, You inspire me to keep writing, to keep posting. The likes and comments you generously send my way encourage me to write more. Your continued presence and support motivates me to be present even on days when I think I can’t due to time limitation. My mind…… Continue reading 100, 1000, 200
