I had been in and out of Singapore in the recent years to visit my husband who works as a Creative Director in the city. We thought visits were not enough and in the last quarter of 2012, we decided to be together in just one home and in just one country.
Many changes took place since the decision. I quit my five-year old job in Manila, me and my daughter moved to Singapore, my daughter joined a local school and I embraced a more domesticated lifestyle. And oh yes, to save my sanity, I started blogging.
As a tourist, I keep coming back in the Lion City because of its fascinating mix of cultures, the variety of food in every corner and the different places of interest. However, living Singaporean style 24/7 is but a different story… crossing my fingers that despite the adjustments, this becomes a fun and rewarding family journey.
Please join me as I narrate some of my experiences as an expatriate Filipino mom in Singapore… my challenges in finding Malunggay leaves in the local market for my Tinola, getting lost in the MRT interchange, my bouts with squat toilets, and learning that Kopi O is for black coffee and Teh O is for tea without milk.
As this is my very first post, allow me to thank my two loving supporters who have their quirky ways of telling me they are fully behind my back… My Johnny and my Jodee. Also my thanks to family and friends who gave their worthwhile
suggestions as I pondered on the title of this blog site.

P.S. This “about” page had undergone several changes in the same manner that there had been happy, crazy changes in my mommyhood. From raising an only child to – double the dose – a teener and a toddler. This mommy is still writing from (and still exploring) the sunny side of Singapore and wishes to reach out to as many moms and dads.
