ON MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIPS





MARRIAGE 101. I love talking to other married or single women about relationships and marriage and exchanging notes and experiences. I just got married last September 2015 and I have a long way to go in figuring out the married life. hahah. Being with your husband/ partner is blissful and challenging at the same time. You always have to find the right balance between staying true to yourself and being a part of the duo that you are now (because when you get married, you're one with your husband). It's about contributing to the relationship and also giving, to make it work. :)

I have been following Patty Laurel-Filart (www.pattylaurel.com) for a while now (peg ko siya, forever. hehe) and she with Kelly Misa-Fernandez and Nicole Hernandez-De Los Angeles have this series of videos/ episodes of Eat, Drink and Be Married - just a casual, unscripted series of 3 Real Life Friends. In this video, the ladies discuss their thoughts on making relationships work. It's a fun video to watch, just wanted to share it here as well. I hope you enjoy it!

Here's to marriages and relationships that last, forever! :)

BE STILL


BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD. These past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride. This January, we found out that I was pregnant. We were so excited for this precious gift. Then the worst happened, 7 weeks in, I lost the baby in my womb. We went in for a routine ultrasound 2 weeks ago and got the biggest shock of our lives : our baby had no more heartbeat. 

Our doctor explained that the baby had developmental problems, the abnormalities would have made it hard to continue with life. There was nothing that I could have done to change the situation (bed rest, less stress, eating healthier, etc), it was something that was out of my control. As a first time mom, I was really devastated. I cried so hard in the clinic where I had my ultrasound ; cried for my baby who I so longed to see and hold.

ART AND FAMILY : THE CHAN LIM FAMILY OF ARTISTS AND STUDENTS EXHIBIT



ART AND FAMILY. I love art and family is also close to my heart, so the Chan Lim Family of Arts and Students event last Sunday was a treat for me. Last time I was able to hold a paint brush was way back in architecture school when my professor asked us to paint the landscape outside. So it was fun to get to practice painting again.

SOMETHING NEW

Family is love. :)

NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNINGS. Hello again from my computer! :) I know I said I would blog more last year, well this year, it's time to implement those new year's resolutions! :)

Lots has happened in the past years, I got married to the love of my life, changed jobs and said goodbye to my 8 year long relationship with my last archi firm. So much has happened, and one thing that I realize, change is always happening. :)

IN BANGKOK

I've always loved travelling and exploring new places and cultures. It gives me a sense of adventure, and fresh perspective. So since last year, we have been planning trips, starting first with Asian countries. We take advantage of the amazing promo fares that the airlines have to offer, and thanks to them, travelling abroad is possible. :)
