Hello world!!!

Hi! I'm Sharon, mommy Sharon now :)

I started my journal in my personal blog in 2004 until 2008 and took a really looong break. I have been wanting to start writing again ever since especially now that I am a wife, a mom, and at the same time, an international public servant.

I have been managing multi-billion dollar development projects since I graduated from university. Two postgraduate degrees and an ongoing PhD later, Im still here :). The thrill and excitement of what I have been doing made me realized that I have so many stories to tell to my children, most especially. I am overwhelmed with my multi-roles now as a mom and as a person with this purpose that somehow all these are worth sharing for.

I became a wife in 2010 then a mom in 2011 and 2012. Oftentimes though I wish I am a full time mom to my darlings, Syene and Scarloe who are now 3 and 2 years old. A dream "diva" where I will be able to accompany Syene to her ballet and art classes and Scarloe to all her Kindermusik sessions. Syene and I can have a mother-daughter bonding lunch in a nice and chic restaurant at least once a week (with no yaya). I will be more meticulous (than what I am now) to Scarloe's wide range of therapy sessions and appointments with medical specialists. Most importantly, I can have at least time (unhurried one) for myself - a few hours at the spa and salon; to experiment on dishes and bake goodies; shop - without feeling guilty. I can also be super OC in finishing family album projects and making all nooks and crannies pinterest-worthy of my more than one year old own new home. With more roles I am into now, I know I know I can all do these!

Don't get me wrong - I love my work so much. I consider myself instrumental in contributing to economic development of not only my country, the Philippines, but also of other Asian developing countries as well. I am thrilled with all the pressures associated with my current position and felt fulfilled every accomplishment. My eyes get bigger, my heart gets warmer while my brain gets fried every time I am in a new less "mainstreamed" country. I will forever be grateful for this blessing of a lifetime.

As I write each piece over a cup of coffee, this happy space is for all the stories to share to my Syene and Scarloe, my life.
