Being stuck at home on most days due to the pandemic and with all those social distancing protocols enacted by the Government has left us with no choice but to pivot and adjust our daily patterns to make working from home convenient and hassle free for all of us.
We all know how integral it is to take care of our health, especially during these troubling times. From tending to my infant as a newly minted Mom, to working my 8 hour shift for my day job, to managing orders and sending it to my clients for my Online Store https://www.instagram.com/sourcedbylou/, to managing our new household since we just moved in to a more spacious unit a few days ago to slowly being more consistent and getting back on track with blogging, one of my first passions since I was back in the grades wherein I used to create poems and short stories in my notepad while I was waiting for my school bus to arrive and pick me up from school.
It’s been almost 7-8 months since the lockdown started, how have you been? How’s your mental health been doing as of late? 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride for all of us, not only were we shaken up from our comfort zones but we were also isolated from our friends, family members and co-workers who we used to chat up and catch up everyday at work.

As I turn another leaf over of the year that was 2019, I cannot help but fathom everything that had transpired during the course of the last 12 months. From quitting my seemingly stable Corporate Job to starting my own budding start-up, to getting engaged, travelling to various parts of the Globe, learning the ebbs and flows of the Business, starting a family and getting right down and dirty to my Finances.
Just last week, I got invited to this very insightful and interesting event spearheaded by The Asian Institute of Management ( AIM ) Master of Business Management ( MBM ) Batch 1995.
The Event was called “Notables at AIM”, a nontraditional speaker series hosted by an array of luminaries with expertise and insight on relevant topics. Thought leaders and captains of industry are invited to engage not only with the AIM community but with the public in attendance as well. The speaker series kicked off last Thursday, November 28 at the Fuller Hall, AIM, Makati City.
Just a few weeks back, I was invited to witness the awarding ceremony of this nationwide competition pioneered by ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation and Phoenix Petroleum Philippines in collaboration with the Bayan Academy for Social Entrepreneurship and Human Resource Development.
Since I was pretty much free during that day and I was already within the vicinity of the area I decided to check out this event. Who knows right? It might be something worth my while. I got to the ABS-CBN Production Studios just in the nick of time coming from a nearby hotel in Quezon City after a late luncheon event. Ms. Helen, their Media Relations Manager as well as Ms. Ems from their Media Relations Team were very welcoming and accommodating throughout the whole event.
Around 2 weeks ago, I was invited to attend one of the events in Robinsons Magnolia wherein they would be conducting a workshop on how to color and treat your hair with this new hair color brand without the harsh after effects or usual ammonia content that most hair coloring products contain.
I haven’t blogged in what seems like forever! 2019 had been such a whirlwind of experiences and new beginnings and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in the year 2020! From quitting my Corporate Job in a well-known Conglomerate to venturing it out on my own to start up my own Digital Agency and navigating the world of Entrepreneurship to traveling across Japan, the local beaches of Siargao and my One Month Adventure in the land of Uncle Sam traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast!
Visiting relatives that I haven’t seen for such a long time and relatives that I have just gotten acquainted to recently. It had been nothing short of amazing, that it should have another blog post dedicated to just that. What else is new this year? Oh yeah, I got engaged and soon enough tied the knot with KD just a couple of weeks back 🙂 What a journey it has been indeed!
Thank God for days off! 🙂 That is my mantra for today as I filed for a day off from work to attend to my errands which needs my immediate attention and action as the days pass by so quickly.
Of course, even though my days are mostly filled with various activities here and there I should not forget relaxing and indulging myself in the things I love doing the most like blogging and food photography. So when the opportunity came to blog about this reputable food joint near my office I immediately confirmed my attendance and signified my interest in attending this dinner.
The restaurant is located inside Sapphire Block where quality food establishments abound 🙂 I love eating in Sapphire Block as the quality of the food always passes my standards and you can converse with your friends all night long as the establishments close at a later time than the usual.
