SaabTV: The Best Mother’s Day Gift

It’s my first time to celebrate Mother’s Day and I was expecting to spend it in the hospital as Pancho recovers from his surgery. What a wonderful surprise it was to find out that things went very well in the operating room and we were able to go home the very next day. Today is…

Heartbroken But Hopeful

This might be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I’ve stayed silent because I think I’ve been in denial. I thought keeping it to ourselves would make this whole thing unreal. This last month, I was in and out of the ICU and I almost didn’t make it. On February 8, we lost…

Build-A-Library Baby Shower

I remember the power I felt when I first learned how to read. I read everything I could. All the books around the house, cereal boxes, school documents, etc. I challenged myself to read things I didn’t even understand! I marveled at my ate Unna’s Archie Comics collection (it was huuuuge and she even had…

SaabTV: Alaska Milk Art Project!

I visited my nieces and nephews the other day and when I learned that my ate Unna’s eldest (Zoie) is now in the 5th grade, I was SHOOKT. Her being in the 5th grade probably means I can’t pull off saying trendy things like SHOOKT, right? Haha! Seriously, though, these kids grow up so fast….

Pop’s Peace On Earth

8 years ago, papa passed away. I used to think his death left an empty space inside of me but now I understand that this space was created for me to keep his legacy alive. I can never give up on this country because of how much he loved it. Please listen to my favorite…

SaabTV: Yoga Challenge with Lulu

I don’t usually think of milk. I guess it’s just not something one takes the time to think of. I mean, it’s part of every shopping list I’ve ever made but I don’t actually take the time to sit down and think of dairy. That would be weird, wouldn’t it? But today I found myself…

Japan Holiday: Tokyo Afternoon Tour

As I said, we went drinking the night before and I cried my eyes out when I learned of Carrie Fisher’s passing. And as promised – here’s the selfie I took that morning. So I pretty much just wore shades the whole day haha! Headed out for an afternoon tour of Tokyo. It’s best to…

JAPAN HOLIDAY: FAMILY VALUES TOUR

*Nope, Jim and I didn’t attend Family Values Tour. It’s just a title. Teehee. For the younger ones: Family Values Tour was a rock & hip-hop festival that started in 1998. For our 3rd day in Tokyo, Jim and I made plans to meet up with my family who arrived in Tokyo the day before….

JAPAN HOLIDAY: SKIING AT GALA YUZAWA

I wasn’t really planning on updating my blog while on vacation but I’m currently on a bullet train to Osaka from Tokyo and here I am typing away. It’s probably because of this e-mail I got 2 days ago: Short, sweet, direct to the point. So here you go: an unedited first draft of a…
