My Blog Through The Years

This is our story.

On a beautiful day of August 13, 1986, across the field in a beautiful province of Nueva Vizcaya, I was born.

Growing up I’ve always been fascinated by advertising, magazines and fashion that I always wanted to take up Bachelor of Science in Advertising. But the only college offering that course during that time was College of St Benilde, La Salle. I gave up on the idea that my parents had to sell this little portion of land we own to pay for my tuition fees and settled on the truth that we will never be able to afford it.
Fast-forward to 2017.
Life has a funny way of helping you chased after your dreams. I started the first three years of my young career working as an Accountant in an advertising company in Makati. I’ve worked with the few creatives in the industry, igniting what have been (supposedly) the focus of my entire teenage years but money put it on the sideline. And that’s when I realized, I’ll go cross-country pursuit of my childhood dream. I wanted to become a writer.
During that time, I started my blog “expatpetitemom” as a weekend hobby. And after a few months, a Thailand fashion site Zalora discovered my blog and reached out to me for a year long collaboration. Then an Asian budget airlines “Airasia” follow suit sponsoring us a 3-days-2-nights free trip to an expensive city of Singapore. I’m always thankful for these brand and more international store reaching out to me, for the confidence they always had.
Two years later, my husband and I welcomed our tiny little miracle, our greatest blessing Chloe. And this blog grew up along with my kid. And we will always be moving forward and up with these babies, all the days of our lives.
Thanks a lot for reading. Please feel free to email me at or find me at

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
