On Friday, March 27, around 4:30 in the afternoon, we decided to go the hospital for check-up, then to our shocked I’ve been suspected of COVID-19 together with my brothers. Why? simply because of our symptoms and maybe the travel history of our parents. Japan are very strict when it comes to the hospital protocols and guidelines especially there’s COVID-19 going on. They suspected that we might have COVID regarding our health conditions and since our parents are recently got back from the Philippines (starting April 3, Philippines are included in Japan’s travel ban.) They think that our parents might be asymptomatic carriers that’s why the hospital recommended us to take a COVID-19 test for our best assurance and less worrisome.Continue reading “What it feels like to be suspected of COVID-19?”

Are you just like me? Not having too many friends? Nowadays, it’s easy to say “oh she’s my friend”, “yah! we’re friends” but my overthinking asks are they really friends? As in seriously?! I remember someone saying in an argument proudly saying, “Look at me, I have so many friends, and you’re not!” Hmm… my eyebrow suddenly raise (like The Rock) and thought to myself “Tsk. Tsk.” that’s not what I’ve known or heard from your so called “many friends.” It’s not about the number of friends you had. Friends are family too, like you know the real one. It’s rarely to find a genuine friendship. If you have one or two, you’re lucky so keep it for real. If you don’t have one, it’s absolutely okay, you have you’re family, and that’s one of the best friendship you’ll ever had.Continue reading “Why It’s okay not to have a “lots” of friends? Is it really okay?”
In every corner of the world, we are fiercely facing fear and anxiety of this pandemic so called COVID-19. Just this Friday, we had the second case in Hiroshima City, located in Onomichi Town, where are town are almost 19 minutes by car. Am I scared? Surely YES. That man who got positive in COVID-19 just recently travel for business trip and came back in Japan, no symptoms at first then few days suddenly turn weak and become the second case of COVID-19 in our city. I’m freaking worried and scared because my mom and my father-in-law just got back from their travel in the Philippines, same airport where the man land to, but not the same flight or day, but still it scares me, that’s why we keep on praying for their continuously protection from this pandemic and each everyone of us.Continue reading “Thought for Today: “We are one” in this COVID-19 battle.”
When you came back home for so long and missed being with them, all you wanna do is sketched a plan of indelible get-together with those special old and new in your life. And definitely a big oh YES, it is one of my check lists so that’s what I really did. Of course, not everyone can possibly met and bond ‘cos they might be busy and too far I guess however I’ll be glad and thankful for those being in it, and that makes my day special.

Yey! After (7) seven years, we finally made it to travel and come back home for a one month vacay in the Philippines, sabi nga nila “There’s no place like home.” and indeed it is. We planned the trip for so long but it’ll be a little bit surprise to my in-laws, where we decided to stay . It’s thrilling to see their reactions if they see their apo’s for the first time especially the two bulilits.
So the day comes, I even posted a facebook live while on the train going to Kansai Airport but the post titled are something twist so that my in laws will not be suspicious and yet the journey continues. We booked and fly with Jetstar airline, well it’s one of the cheapest flights aside from Cebu Pacific + we’ve been rewarded to spend our waiting hours to a VIP lounge, a great ambiance with over looking airplane runway + food deli to eat and kids can even spent their time on coloring books. ‘cors got coffee, sushi, coffee and dessert.
When we’re about to land in Manila Airport, It feels like my heart will fall while the airplane was landing para kaming nasa rides, scary! ramdam mo talaga and those people shouts makes you more nervous haha! Anyways, we landed safe naman.Continue reading “WHERE MY HEART IS”
As expected, God is full of surprises and in the end it’ll always give you the sweetest smile to wear in your beautiful faces. We didn’t expect that God will give us another blessing, a new love, and another added to the Fronda’s family.
I know, I know it’s been 3 months since I gave birth to my second child Grey, not too long and yeah so early, and that’s when I notice that I’m preggy again but how could we spurn such great love, a God’s lagniappe. I admit, I’m frightened, jumpy and even doubted it at first, because I really don’t know what to do, thoughtfully asking myself, “Kaya ko ba?”, keep catechizing my hubby “Kayanin ba natin?”, praying and asking for guidance, telling him, if these is your plans so let it be and we will be happy to received it.
As Albert Einstein said, “Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” I’m very enthusiastic about my passion in arts and it’s contagious. Whenever my little girl have spare time like she’s having a day off school, one of our bonding recipe are making arts & crafts, and it’s one of the treasure that I’d like to pass and share with her, and it’s like building a happy and healthy mother-daughter bond.
She loves to doodle, colouring and paint with her scratch book. I always keep her works at pin board, so it’ll inspire and pursue her to do more plus the feeling of enjoyment every time she did her best effort.
After five years of trying to conceive, carefully bearing 36 weeks and gave birth in the month of August day 3. I can finally glimpse, listen and touch everything about him, a new member of the family, my sweet number two, and yes I finally have a son.
We named him “Grey Avery“, I’m guessing that you might have an idea where we get his name. Yeah I know, some are asking me If we named him through Fifty shades of Grey, or the hottie Christian Grey.
I indeed adore Mr. Grey (Sino ba naman ayaw kay Christian Grey! haha!) but actually we get it from the TV series ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘, my husband and I are so hooked watching the series, not only because the characters and plots are truly amazing and interesting but also because we’re both relates or interested in science, the operating room, the setting, and of course the emergency rush. We have great fondness to Meredith character and I’m the one who insist that Avery will be his second name from Dr. Jackson Avery, sugar crush. Haha!Continue reading “LITTLE SHADES OF GREY”

Participating in a bazaar was a good and gleeful experience. Let’s talk about the feelings I’ve felt. Well it was really exciting but nervous, because it’s my first ever bazaar and it’s like questioning myself ‘oohh..what to do?’, ‘what to sell?’ etc.; of course busyness & challenging, need to overworked and finish all the handmade that I’ll sell (imagine the time that I’ve spent to my working table and my butt to seat-in, ugh! kinda hurts.); and yeah exhausted but perfectly overwhelming. It was held in Mihara, Hiroshima, Japan. It’s a bazaar project of Mihara Catholic Church. Thanks to Father Arnaldo and my friends for supporting me.

Tips for today:
I was experimenting earlier, making and practicing Mokume Gane then i have some hard clays that’s not easy to condition or knead. And then ideas just bumps into my head, but just wondering if this might really work to make my clay soft and easy to knead. I don’t wanna use liquid softener for clays because sometimes my hand and clays are getting sticky and messy.
So i try it and it really works. What did I do?
I just cut some hard clays then i blower it (hot) yes i used my hair blower to make my clay soft in about seconds or minutes i guess, all you need is to check or touch the clay if it’s already softening. And yeah it really works for me.
Try it and don’t be afraid. 🙂
Good day! 🙂
This is my humble handmade entry for Jingle Ornaments challenge at Art Nouveau Philippines. I used styro-ball and a plastic christmas ball to make my jingle ornament. My thoughts and imaginations wanted to explode cos I don’t have great ideas on making my ornament though I have my materials I just really don’t know what would be the finale designs.
So I just get my thingy on my working desks, and start creating the ornaments, then my first ornament turns into a shades of yellow with the green grass effects on the top with some red flowers; Second turns into a simple crusty ornament with red ribbon; the Third one becomes a See-through reddish galaxy with golden wire; Fourth one turns into a sweetie-licious ornament filled of chocolate icing, biscuits and ice cream; and the last one turns into Vines of love.
And I guess that’s the spirit of Christmas that your handmade turns into a wonderful and merry one.
I’d also like to share and introduce the other ornaments entries of my co-artist in Art Nouveau Ph with their very lovely handmade ornaments with their own description.
“I really want to make the ornaments with a styro-ball but unfortunately all stocks at NBS were sold out, so I made a few out of a flat round wood cabs I have in my stash.
And finally, I also get my Six (6) donuts from my co-artists at CFSPH or also called Clay Friends Society Philippines. Each donut are made from different clay artist. Remember the donuts I made for my first ever swap; and now here’s the donuts I received for the swapping activity that we had.
They are so cute. I want to make something in this donuts that will result on more than display thingy.
