Touringkitty Sings and Travels: Balesin Island Club

Up until now, I still marvel at the thought that I get to do two things I love the most, even beyond marriage and motherhood–singing and traveling. For my first working trip this year, I was off to a beautiful island called Balesin. Balesin is managed by Alphaland Corporation. It is a members-only resort so […]

In search of a Mommy bag

What’s your current bag, mommies? Mine is like this.     And that’s my ONLY bag now. For any outfit regardless of colour, any occasion, any…anything!  During my college days, I have a collection of bags. Not that much, but enough to switch for any occasion. Now that I’m a mom, I want just one […]

Achieve a WAHMderful Life through this Workshop Series

I realized I have been working at home since college. Teaching voice and piano at our home gave me that confidence to be a teacher (and that extra school baon, too!). In the past years, I have dabbled in various work at home jobs: teaching music, writing, editing, social media management, choral arranging, blogging. Last year alone, […]

Touring tales: Pasinaya 2013

Before, I was part of Pasinaya as a singer of one of the Center’s Resident Companies, the Philippine Madrigal Singers. For the past two years, I was behind the scenes as stage manager. It was tough work, coordinating with 13 different groups through email, phone calls, and endless text messages to put up the Little […]

Sharing my bit of pride today

In both English and Filipino vernaculars, pride could mean good or bad. I did research as I’m doing this post, and found out that pride is positive according to some philosophers, and negative to some religions! It can even be a sin. But of course, we’ll be talking about the positive pride, which I felt […]
