For mothers and daughters (and sons too)
As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.

Beware of Your Anger
It’s the most dangerous, darkest thing— an unaccountable simmering rage, a bitterness that billows up to bite you when it breathes, that latches on to a body with the fangs of a hydra and the swallowing capabilities of a python. Continue reading
A lot of reality TV shows around the world are in search for “best talents”. Naturally talented people including those that well, uh – trained to have talent squeeze themselves to huge crowd and spend long hours of waiting in long lines just to get a spot on the contest.
Little did we know that each countries have the best talents in their own homes. I know, you’d readily say I’m talking about you. 😀

When I was younger, I remember being late in my classes most of the time. If I remember it right, school would start very early and I’d have to leave home at 6am – but I was just always late. I also remember that whenever I have home projects that needs to be submitted – I was always cramming, trying to finish my projects in the last minute! I really have no idea why I was like that – I just don’t know why. I just realized now that I am a mother that my schedule and “time management” when I was younger is.. well it sucks big time.
When I gave birth to my eldest, I tried to figure out how I can do things for him properly and on a timely manner. See, I was a working mom that time, and I had to leave for work at 8am – so I have to make sure that everything’s prepared for my baby and that I have already bathed and fed him. I tried to organize my time and set schedules trying to fit in everything I can do and prepare in the morning before I leave. I just have so many things to do – wash the bottles, cook food, wash the dishes, bathe Josh, feed josh and put him to sleep. Yes, I put him to sleep before I leave, I don’t have to leave him crying to his lungs. Continue reading

After months of holding myself back – finally I came to create this blog – The Fab Mommy.
So who’s “The Fab Mommy”? – of course me! and YOU! (if you’re a mommy) 😀
I am far from perfect or even a great mom – I just don’t see it that way. I have a challenges every single day. I have weaknesses that I wish would be developed and be my strong points very soon.

I can be a cool mom who loves fun! I love to cook and bake and satisfy my family’s hungry tummies – these are my own fab mommy things. Continue reading
