Testing The Waters


       It have been feeling bored lately. It seems like I have drifted off to a long slumber until  I was slapped with the reality of my sister’s illness and eventual demise. After she left us last month, I realized life is too short and one should make the most of  the time at hand. Take chances, try something new, don’t be afraid of changes and create memories with the ones you love.

       I have been in Qatar for more than a decade and yet I barely enjoyed my stay here. It has always been work, home, malls and yes, remittance centers hahaha! Surely my boys and I could do better than that and this tiny fabulous country has a lot to offer.

     Lately since my sister has gotten ill and passed away, I found journaling therapeutic. It has given me the much sought after outlet. Barely approaching 40 and yet I feel so old and jaded. Life seems to have turned mundane already or perhaps going through the daily motions made me this ungrateful little brat who can barely appreciate life’s many blessings?

     So here I am, trying something new, hoping to find myself again. Once more, I want to feel what it is like to live and not merely exist. To actually enjoy what I do. I will once again  allow myself to try something new, make mistakes and be humbled by them. I will start this blog to have a creative journal, record my hobbies and my family’s little adventures and hopefully meet like-minded people.

     I love food and travel so I will most likely be talking about them here.  I can’t wait to get started! I will be taking pictures using my trusty Huawei Android phone only since I don’t have a camera. But this will do for now. 

       I should have done this a long time ago when I still have my number one fan and critic around, my one and only sister Baby. She recently passed away after succumbing to breast cancer.

     Baby, we never had the chance to leave the comforts of our home and explore places and cultures together.  I will try my best to live this life to the fullest and share them on this blog in your loving memory.  Your happy disposition and zest for life will always be my inspiration. This one is for the both of us…I love you.
