Blogopolis 2015: Steadfast Blogging


When Nuffnang invited me to give a 10-minute talk about steadfast blogging, I was super excited and yet super nervous at the same time. I mean, how can you talk about something you've been doing for almost 4 years in 10 minutes? Ang hirap lang di ba? I know fo' sho' I'll blabber & chika my way given I talk a lot when I'm nervous. So I opted to quickly summarize what I've learned 4 years after I gave blogging a chance. Like any other blogger, I started blogging because I felt like it was ... [ Read More ]

Couch Potato


I can't remember the last time I was a couch potato. Lounging in my usual house body outfit- no, I don't wear sweat pants, more like an old dress or shorts & shirts that are too frail, spitting on them is likely to cause the cloth to rip apart heehee, eating junk food and indulging in my favorite TV series or book. I miss lounging, doing nothing else but just enjoy and relax. These days the only time out I get are bathroom breaks and pockets of moments when the lil' GJGs are taking their ... [ Read More ]

Thank you 2014!


Today is the last day of the year 2014.

The Go Family Portrait 2014


It's becoming an annual thing for us to have our family portrait taken. However, what makes this year's portrait different from the previous year is that we got to shoot it outdoors. The thing about shooting outdoors is that there are a lot of things to consider: weather, natural light, venue and the mood of the people involved. These are some of the things we had to keep in mind when we agreed to shoot outdoors with the super cool, talented and rising life + style photographer, Louie Arcilla. ... [ Read More ]

Why I Work Out + 3 Tips To Get You Started

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Realizing I am no longer in my early 20s nor mid 20s made me feel oh-so unaccomplished in the fitness & health department. You see, I've always been thin. Weight was never an issue for me until after I had given birth to lil' Ms. GJG. Not that I was bothered with my weight, it was more about how I've been really lethargic for the 20 plus years of my life and the unhealthy eating habits that made me gain weight. I couldn't remember the last time I had a good sweat or enjoyed & sticked to ... [ Read More ]
