I have done it!

I am moving blogs…

my new blog is http://heyitsrachiel.blogspot.com

Hope to see you on the other side!


Tribute to Motime and more…

Before this blog ever materialized, I had an old blog which housed most of my thoughts when I was still working in the Philippines.

It had all of my angst (I have actually transferred them all on this blog), my fears and my love poems for my then boyfriend, R.

I was very active then and I guess with my friends blogging about their week or about work, it makes me feel connected with them however I guess people moved on by using Facebook and Twitter.

There are still some who blogs (like me and you… and you…) but I have to admit the number of people have been lessened (please prove me wrong!!) so I neglected that blog.

Whenever I read my posts, I laugh, sometimes I can feel that I blush or turn red (because of embarrassment) and at times, sad. With all these mix of emotions, I decided to come up with this blog because I thought, let me start anew.

A few years have passed and a few months back, I have received a notification that “motime” was closing down. I got an email giving me step by step instructions on how I can export my blog should I wish to keep it.

I did.

I felt sad for motime and I really hope they had a good run housing people’s emotional breakdowns, irritating whines about life and love, angst about their partners and so on.

As for me, I thought maybe I can re-do this blog too.

Start anew.

Not really to erase what has been published but… but… I really can’t think of a better word than “focus”.

I might also close down some of my blogs (probably leave this and my portfolio blog which is here) and re-open them when I’m back to writing two to three posts in a week! In that way, I can focus more on where and what I want to write about.

I need to do something on this blog….

I just need to… where do I start?

Maybe I need to purge some of my online blogs so that I can concentrate on one… and then when I get the chance to do more blogs (in future)… then I’d start up.

It’s better to be able to maintain one than none at all right? Now, where do I begin?


A lot of things have happened over the past few months… Let’s see…

  • got myself a Samsung Tab
  • enrolled in a fitness club

I think these two are the highlights of my two months.

I decided to get the Samsung Tab Plus because it is useful on those days when I cannot use the computer (1) because Robert is using it and (2) I can use the other computer but I am more for browsing rather than anything else.

It was a good buy because now, I can skype better with my mom and at the same time, I can read my magazines from Zinio! (which is a nice website by the way)

I think that’s about it for me.

Still pretty much the same… Does that make me boring? I am not too sure…

I have to go now as I need to prepare for my “Body Jam” class! 😛

*hopefully, more to follow! Not next month but like maybe tomorrow? 🙂 *

Checking my old posts…

Since I have all the time tonight / today, I have decided to do some back reading of my posts for this blog. While browsing, I just noticed that a lot of the photos I have linked are broken 😦 and since these images are a part of my post, people will not understand or will not get a picture of what I am saying in that particular post (boo!).

Now, I have tasked myself to really consider if I should leave this blogging platform and move to another one?

Nuninuninuninu…. That’s me thinking…

I need to break this!!!

I have been out of sync for the past few months … I am actually not sure why but I guess:-

1) we went home last March for our much-awaited holiday

2) after getting back from my holiday, I had to catch up with work (yeap)

3) got busy trying to get pregnant (which at times end up with me getting frustrated)

4) ….

Well, the fourth one is really trying to write again. I cannot say that I do not have ideas because I do. While I was in the Philippines, I even wrote topics that I wanted to share here in my blog but I just don’t know why I cannot let my thoughts come together so that I can create a blog.

Even my freelance writing has come to a halt. I really cannot pinpoint why but all I know is I need to be back in the game.

I hope that my starting it off this way, I can get back into my writing groove and start tapping in ideas or thoughts or whatever in this blog!

That’s it for now!


Role Playing

As a first post, I do have to explain my title…


We do this all the time … at the office… at home… in everything we do.

Currently, I am juggling roles from being a personal assistant, a daughter and finally a wife.

At times, I complain but then if everything will work as what they call ‘utopia’… it’s alright.

I guess I will end it here for the meantime…
