First Valentine’s in Canada with hubby

How did your Valentine's Day go? I started mine by making my husband breakfast sandwiches which I shaped like hearts, although I was not actually satisfied with how it turned out.

A night with James Mullinger

A month ago when we walked the Albion trail to New Glasgow, we visited the New Glasgow Square and checked on some upcoming events. One event that caught our interest was the James Mullinger Tour showing on February 8. Lincoln decided to get the tickets.

I miss the Filipino Food!

If there's one thing I miss besides my family, it's the food from the Philippines! We're very lucky to belong in the Filipino Community here in Canada because it's makes a lot of difference. They've been settled here for quite a while, and it's a comfort that you have someone to turn to for advice…

We almost got into trouble!

It was Sunday and the weather was really nice. Since there was a Filipino service in the afternoon at church,  Lincoln and I decided to attend it instead of the morning service so we can spend more time with my step-daughter before she goes back to her mom's place in the afternoon. We decided to…

The Joy Of Simple Walks With My Husband

My husband doesn't have a car. He doesn't see the need for it. Our house is near to the school, library, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and other establishments. I guess that is one advantage when you live in a small town.

How Winter Taught Me To Be Thankful

It took days for it to sink in that I'm already here in Canada and finally with my husband. My first day didn't start very well. When I landed in Toronto airport, I started to  have fever. I was already wearing a jacket but it was not enough to keep me warm, I was shivering.

Old vs. New Philippine Passport

At last, after months of waiting, I finally got my new passport!

Getting a passport appointment from the DFA website was a long wait. I was waiting for a slot since September to renew my passport, but the schedule was full until December! I made it a habit to check the website for a slot, but there was no luck, every time, not until I saw a post from an FB group which I am member of. In that post, it says that there is a site where you can access the DFA real time calendar.

Updating Your Civil Status In Government IDs And Changing Your Last Name

Before updating your civil status, decide first if you're going to change your last name. This is something that you and your husband should discuss. Changing your last name is not mandatory in the Philippines, so have a talk with your husband why you prefer or not prefer to take his last name. Bear in…
