Top Things I Learned from Kdrama Itaewon Class

Netflix may be best known for its big-budget American-made TV series such as Stranger Things and the likes of it but thanks to its ever-growing clout especially in the International audience, we’re starting to see more and more diversity among Netflix’s content offerings.

Kdramas have been quite popular in the site as of late, garnering top rankings for many months now. What makes it so popular amongst fans is not only the gorgeous actors with impeccable skin that we see on set but also the seamless weaving of the whole plot and how everything eventually comes together beautifully in the end.

That said, I know that I am pretty much late in the game but hey, everyone has his or her own timeline right? So, I got started with this Kdrama a few nights back called Itaewon Class.

Here’s a quick briefer on the storyline.

When your baby loves your Nanny more than you.

Have you ever experienced this heart-wrenching feeling that arises when your child is sleepy, hurt, or hungry, and they cry for the babysitter to comfort them rather than you?

As working Moms who aside from having a full-time job and hustles also in between to append her income, this might pose as a challenge sometimes for us. As of now, Kaeden sleeps in with his nanny in his room since I get up really early at around 3:30am every day to prepare for my work which is at 4am Manila time and also the room space isn’t really that big to accommodate his crib in our room since we are just renting out a condo space so it’s dimensions, fixtures and furniture are already fixed and there’s not much you can do with the current space so I just have to make do of spending as much time as I can with him once I finish all my listed tasks for the day.

Last December 2020, wherein we went to Baguio Country Club to check-in and spend the Holidays over by sleeping in and just eating good food with this cutie.

AVP Bloggers Event 2021

It’s been quite a while since I last attended a bloggers event and I must say that after a long hiatus and some inconsistencies on my end trying to go back to blogging, I finally came around this pandemic. Since I had some spare time on my hands, not driving to and from work and purely just working from home and with our reliable help at home to help me tend to my son. The situation, forced me to rethink what I really like doing aside from work and my other pressing priorities, which undoubtedly gave me one answer which was: WRITING and Blogging.

After work, I usually just key in my thoughts on my blog and then try to proofread it quickly and then when I deem it to be okay already, I just publish it or just schedule it for posting. I must say, that writing down my thoughts for the past few weeks calms me down and serves as my outlet in a way especially when things tend to go haywire at times.

I really haven’t had that much time to watch other Kdrama’s as of late due to the hour long episodes that seems to eat up much of my time thus making me unproductive throughout the day.

Planning for your Baby’s Birthday and some tea..

They said that nothing great ever comes out from being easy and that good things never came out of comfort zones. The past few days, I have been feeling a little under the weather, it’s like all my motivation to carry on has been lost and went out the window. Maybe it’s because we constantly compare ourselves despite not really meaning to, to what we see on social. People buying this and that at such a young age. Achieving that house, that car and getting to do whatever it is that they want any time of the day. That’s why I decided to just unfollow those accounts for my mental sanity.

That said, I’ll just be focusing on my own personal journey and keep on doing whatever it is that makes me happy which is writing, reading, spending time with people who are closest to me and working on my passion project which is coming up with personalized items and opening up a small scale tea place in the province.

Top 5 Realizations thus far..

This 2021, I am getting rid of a lot of old photos on my phone, deleting them in my internal memory and uploading them to my cloud drive so that my phone wouldn’t be cluttered with various photos throughout the years and also to make way for new memories and photos this 2021.

So before I digress again, let me let you in on my thoughts as we embark on another new year ahead.

2020 made me evaluate better my priorities in life and where I should go from there. I realized that above everything else, health should always come first because how can you progress to your other goals when your health is slowly deteriorating right? Another thing that we should always keep in mind is that our family will always be there for us through the good, bad and the ugly.

A Lookback on 2020, The Year that was.

It’s the last vacation day for me as we resume work again tomorrow morning, or in my case later at 4am EST which is around 1pm PST in San Francisco, CA since the Company that I am working for is based there.

A lot of things had been swirling through my mind as of late, as I constantly question my purpose and my overall direction in life. From being an immature, self-centered single lady who just went with the flow and pushed further to reach her goals no matter what it took, to now being a Wife, Home Manager, Employee, Entrepreneur and a newly minted Mom.


I admit that I still have a lot of learning to do especially when it comes to compromising, managing a household and being a Mom. To be honest, I do not even have all those master chef skills that you see on TV. But, I am making a resolution to at least give it a try and try to learn a thing or two about whipping up a sumptuous feast and surprise my family for once with my cooking even though I don’t really have that innate talent for it. 

So before I get lost again and off track, let me walk you through how these months have been for all of us here as we embark and welcome another new year ahead of us!
