Ohmaygahd!!! It has been 6 months since my last post…. What can I say, time really do fly fast when you’re so preoccupied with family duties. How’s everyone around here in cyber net? I hope you’re all doing well and haven’t forgotten Busog! Sarap!
To summarise my 6 months hiatus…
- I did none stop cooking gigs last year before the TRIBE went for our 7 weeks holiday trip to the Philippines to top up our holiday budget. Going overseas with a 2 year old was pure torture, specially the plane rides. I think our next big overseas trip would be when the youngest turns 5-6 years old, just saying! The kids had the biggest blast overseas….it was me and Mr H who was depleted by the time we came back home. End of January was the start of school here in Australia, so I was a bit busy with Ms M’s and Mr Adventurous school lists and uniforms. It was Ms M’s first year of secondary school and also being apart from Mr Adventurous. Mr Adventurous took some time adjusting without his “Ate” (Older Sister) as a school mate…. so he needed a bit of Mommy time this year.
- Anyone who thinks SAHMs (Stay At Home Moms) roles are easy….. are freaking dead wrong! I swear it is the hardest role you can ever have. It’s like trying to organise a bunch of marbles inside a circle with a bit of turbulence and you have to collect each one every time they roll outside the circle nonstop except when the marbles are sleeping you get a bit of a break. You’re a personal assistant, housekeeper, handyman, a cook, gardener, a nurse, wife, mother, friend and some instances have to be the wicked witch so that the little ones follows rules/etiquettes and learn to be nice to each other. I thought once the kids grows older it will be easier….ngek! I am so wrong, lol! Being a SAHM, makes me so busy & stress at the moment but I won’t have it any other way. It is one of my main aim in life to be hands on with my kids as I did not experience it when I was growing up, as both of my parents were too busy working.
- ‘Lately, I’ve thinking long and hard about Busog! Sarap! purpose (am I happy with it?). I need to reignite that intensity of passion when I first started this blog of mine after seeing some my Busog! Sarap! cropped pictures printed in banners in Manila without permission, it was a bit disheartening to tell you the truth. To the Brisbane lurkers (free riders type) who just snoops for ideas and recipes…. and brags it as their own makes me so irritated and pissed off! I swear…so obvious and as if I won’t know.
So that’s about it! Family life just got little busier and blogging have to take a backseat for the time being. I won’t make promises, I think I jinxed myself every time I say I do something ahead of time….but one thing is for sure it’s not GOODBYE…..it’s HELLO!
P.S. I have to move my computer cabinet outside our main bedroom, as every time I want to use it… the bed draws me like magnet at night and lull me to sleep. I’m running out of space where to relocate my little office….
