Happy birthday, Tukayo!

February 23rd, 2015

holding onI know today you turned 37. I am sure you had a birthday celebration with your family and close friends. I would have been there except that we’re no longer friends. We stopped being friends more than a decade ago. In fact, we stopped speaking to each other since then.

We used to be the best of friends. You used to be the person with whom I could tell almost anything. You were the one I could talk to for hours and hours and still feel like we had so many things we haven’t talked about yet. Anything and everything under the sun. We liked the same songs. We were both bookworms (I am sure you still are)! And we have the same taste in men. Older, wiser, and much like the guys in the romance novels we’ve read.

I miss you, Tukayo! One of my biggest regrets in life was my inability to patch things up between us. But I guess, no matter what I did then, we would still end up like this. No longer friends. Not even acquaintances anymore.

I believe that whatever role you had to play in my life ended that day. And vice versa.

Happy birthday! I still wish you all the best in life.

Essential Features of Great Graphic Design Online Portfolios

January 29th, 2015

If you are considering creating a web portfolio for your graphic design business, it is important that you create a real impact. There are literally hundreds of online portfolios for graphic design services, so you need your portfolio to stand out as truly great. Fortunately, there are several essential features which are common to most great portfolios. By ensuring your portfolio has these features, you can increase your visibility and properly showcase your skills and talents.

The Must Have Features of Online Portfolios

Most web portfolio websites allow users to customize their profile to suit their preferences. While this can be a great way to create an impact, it is important to fully utilize all of the features. There are several components which are often overlooked, yet can have a significant impact on your portfolio. Great online portfolios tend to feature a professional business name, which is often accompanied by a business logo for the brand or company. You should also consider adding a tagline, which can define your skills and services. You should list the services and products you offer and always include an “About Me” page to demonstrate your professionalism and reliability.

Making Your Portfolio Stand Out

When you are creating your web portfolio, you are likely to want it to stand out from the crowd. While this may seem like a real challenge, it can actually be quite easy to create an impact. The main consideration is that you look at your portfolio from the perspective of a potential client. Does the portfolio show your skills properly? Is there an obvious method of contact? Does it look professional? Is the design clear and simple? If you can answer each of these questions from a client perspective, your portfolio is sure to address any issues a potential client may have.

Better tomorrow

January 29th, 2015


When I think of the future, I don’t only think of myself. My future includes my family, my relatives who are close to us, and my friends. It’s the one thing that I couldn’t help myself from doing. I have grand plans for all of us. Plans that involve a comfortable life. Plans that involve a better tomorrow.

It’s a noble idea to think of everyone else’s welfare. I am not noble but I do want a good life for me and my family and for everyone I love.

A Brief Guide to Choosing the Right Designer Diaper Bags

January 29th, 2015

These days having a baby need not mean that you need to sacrifice your sense of style and fashion. You can now simply trade in your designer handbag for any of a great range of designer diaper bags. Personalized diaper bags can not only be a practical accessory but can provide a stylish touch to your outfit. However, rather than buying the latest celebrity diaper bags, you will need to consider which type of bag is right for you.

Designer Diaper Bags for Active Moms:

Whether you enjoy outdoor activities or are simply an active mom, you can choose a backpack style of designer diaper bags. This allows you to keep your arms free and allow you to multitask wherever you are. This style of personalized diaper bags can be equipped with several compartments and pockets to ensure that everything remains organized and you don’t lose items into the depths of the backpack. Just ensure that the bag is made from an easy to clean material such as nylon in case of spills or messes.

Tote Style Celebrity Diaper Bags:

If you are looking for the perfect diaper bag to complement your other accessories, you may wish to consider a tote style design. These are typically smaller than other diaper bags but still contain all of the space needed for a diaper change or feed on the go. Most tote designer diaper bags have front and back pockets in addition to side pockets for smaller items such as keys cell phones or your wallet. This can make it easy to swop out your usual designer bag without needing to worry about space for diapers, wipes and bottles.

Messenger Style Diaper Bags:

These are great for organizing all of your baby supplies on the go. They typically feature a main compartment with plenty of pockets for all of your items, together with outer pockets for smaller items. The back can be easily worn over worn over one shoulder or across your body to ensure that you always have everything you need on hand.

Settling down.

January 17th, 2015

The couple made sure they saved enough money to buy their wedding bands platinum. They already have everything else prepared, paid for. The only things left are their wedding bands and they are ready to buy it.

I remember accompanying my brother and sister-in-law in getting their rings. Looking for a pair of rings which will symbolize your commitment towards each other is not easy. Couples not only look at what looks good but also if it will last them a lifetime. And I would like to believe that my brother and his wife were able to find a good pair for them.

Be sure to buy quality rings to last you and your partner a lifetime.

Welcoming 2015…

December 31st, 2014


About time I should!


I have decided to finally, once and for all, cut off the negative out of my life. There are ‘friends’ who no longer inspires me to become a better person. Those friends who elicit only negative emotions in me are no longer worth being tied to. I am cutting them off my life.

And the negative things? Off to those, too! I have very specific goals for 2015 and I am following everything to the T. It’s crunch time for me since I plan to ‘retire’ from corporate life by the age of 40. I plan to enjoy life by then. Travels, food trips, and just lazing around reading all day long…

Happy New Year to each and everyone of you out there!

Here’s to a 2015 filled with bountiful blessings and surrounded by positivity and love!


Mochi’s babies.

December 18th, 2014


Please welcome the addition to our growing brood of pet dogs at home. Three new Shih Tzu puppies! Two girls and one boy for our Mochi.

Sooo cute!


I am praying that they become healthy dogs as they age each day. Can’t wait to see them open their eyes and start walking/running!
