Mommy’s Back!!! 

Hello there, as some of you knew, I’ve been away from my kids for a long period of time working abroad. When I came back home, from the day I arrived until this day that I am still figuring out what’s my next step as a working mom, for almost 2 months now I just stays home, I’m giving myself a little time to rest. 

5 years that I haven’t done my duty as their mommy, now that I’m back and my children are grown (16, 13, 9) we don’t need a household help, I do all the chores, waking up 5 o’clock in the morning to cook for breakfast and prepare their uniforms, once they all gone to school, I start cleaning our house. Prepare for lunch and pick up my youngest from school in the afternoon, have dinner by 7 evening, wash dishes and check their assignments, watch TV and go to bed after. That’s our daily routine.

This is also the right time for me to teach them how to cook (at least the simple one like cooking rice etc) – as I myself is not a professional cook and still having accidents on oil splatters while frying. Call me stupid but Yes I did this to myself, now I’m having scar from it. 

At the same time, I am also teaching them to do the dishes, sweep the floor and slowly washing their clothes, why slowly? Because they never do chores before the whole time I wasn’t here, their dad didn’t allow them, not to be lazy intentionally but maybe he was thinking it will be best if they only focus on their studies. Not for me, they need to learn at least small chores not to force them but to teach them “again” step by step which will make them more productive in future and be independent. I am also preparing them that when I start working here, they need to do some of these things by themselves. I am not a perfect mom, I yelled at times they don’t listen or do their things – I think that’s normal at least for me he he he

The important thing is, no matter how nagger I may seem, I can see the happiness in their eyes and actions that I am here with them. Letting do the simplest things may help them to be a responsible person too. To my kids, I love you all but y’all need to deal that MOMMY’S BACK! 🤣🤣🤣

Stranded!

Recently I just posted on my social media a video of rain outside my house and how I miss it terribly, being in the Middle East for five years you’ll only experience rain once a year when its gonna change season from summer to winter and vice versa. 

But for 2 weeks now, it is constantly raining everyday without fail with typhoon signal to nearby provinces and storm forming after another. Hmmm, seems like the heaven gave me the rains that i missed for the past years LOL!

Kidding aside, today, me and my kids were travelling to the city for an appointment and to arrange some of my important documents. I am from the province and to get there we need to travel like 3 hours to reach the city, passing through the mountain roads, unfortunately, there’s a landslide so we were stuck here waiting for the concern department/help to clear the road. 

While writing this, the signal were on and off, photo not uploading and I don’t know if this will be publish on time too. Been here for almost 2 hours. For now, I’ll just enjoy the scenery for a while. 🤣🤣🤣

Take a Break, Breathe

Anyone, no matter what’s your life status, whoever the fuck you are, either you’re the richest man in the world or an average worker, needed a break once in a while… Not just to spend money or for leisure only , rather than to breathe and escape from the crazy world we are at.

We have different choices to release our stress, calm ourselves, meditate, unwind, freshen our mind, soul search, breathe… or whatever you wanna call it.

While some of us might choose to travel out of the country, shopping, visit historical places, road trips –  I choose to be near the ocean/nature, it calms me and my inner soul. The relaxing sound of the waves breaking on the shores, the humming of birds, and the fresh air blowing, seems like it is removing all the toxins from your body. These, are priceless, it’s worth doing every now and then, just to get back your mind to sanity, think properly and come out fresh again.

You? What’s your escape from reality?

It’s The Time Of The Month

 

It’s the time of the month
butt aching, back hurting
hands throbbing
all are cramming

It’s the time of the month
pen, calculators and files ready
eight hours and more, be steady
all needs to be done correctly

It’s the time of the month
all are stressed
reports that they request
Oh dear! I need a rest

It’s the time of the month
when Tylenol is my ally
Migraine are here to stay
if only I can run away

It’s the time of the month
Multi-Tasking & responsibility
Attack! Attack! Again here’s my anxiety!
Finished, done, submitted finally!©

Where Do You Find Courage?

where do you find courage?
to wake up everyday
same daily old routine
working like a machine

where has the passion gone?
sitting here all day long
all stress here and there
have stress everywhere

where do you find courage?
to do it everyday
yet you knew it kills you
sadly you can’t quit too

where has the passion gone?
having it back takes courage
you need to be strong
find yourself by your own

where do you find courage?
act now or just never
be like this forever
All but you, be clever
