Hello Guys! It’s been a while since my last post and I’ve missed all of you. I hope that everyone is doing well.
Like most of you, me and my family are also on quarantine for over a month now due to the COVID19 virus that has been infecting a lot of people and has been claiming lives all over the world everyday. All of us wanted this to end and I know that all of us are hoping that everything will be back on how it was before this pandemic started. But I guess, as we patiently wait on what will happen in the next few days, let us use our precious time, energy and resources in doing something enjoyable, productive and worthwhile while staying at home. May it be spending time with your family, reflecting about your life, creating Tiktok videos, watching endlessly on Netflix, trying out or creating new recipes, decluttering your house, starting a new hobby, reading a good book, helping other people, planning your next travel or whatever it is that will help you cope up during this uncertain time.
Well as for me, apart from spending time with my family and taking care of my kids, I thought of reviving the blog once again and for my first post this 2020, I will just give you a little glimpse on what has been happening in my life lately since the start of this year.
Staying in the Philippines
Currently, me and the kids are staying with my family here in the Philippines, while Tep needs to stay in Qatar for work. I decided to come home last December because I wanted to give birth here. Initially, the plan is to stay in the Philippines until the middle of this year, but I guess, with COVID19 on the loose, it might take a little longer.
Family and Motherhood
If you are following me on social media, then you would have known that I gave birth to a cute baby boy, you can call him Migo, last February. To be honest, I find it hard to juggle my time between looking after Pio (who will be turning 2 soon) and taking care of Migo; it was a good thing that we are staying with my family, so we can get all the help that we need.
I resigned from the Company in Qatar where I worked as an accountant for 5 years. My reason, I wanted to be a full time mom taking care of my husband and 2 kids. Although to my surprise, that Company still offered me a consultancy job, which I accepted, wherein I will still be working for them remotely and only when needed.
Plans for the Blog
Last year, I actually thought of shutting down this blog since I find no time to update it (pregnant with Migo and taking care of Pio) plus I just felt that I have nothing interesting to share with most of you. However, I was surprised, because last October 2019, I had my highest blog views, which I did not expected. This made me realized that my blog is still making sense and it is still doing its job on informing my readers.
For the past years, the blog was mainly focused on Travel and Food and less on my personal life. But now, as Wander with Mi turns 4 and I am on my journey as a Mom, I would also like to share with you my new learnings on life and motherhood which I believe can also help most of you. So from being a Travel and Food blog, I am turning it into a Lifestyle Blog, which will cover a lot of things.
I know that I have not been consistent with my blog posts since I started. But I hope that you guys will still stick around and still support me, since I am planning to publish blog posts more frequently now.
I guess that’s it. I would really love to know what you guys are up to these days. Let me know on the comment section below. By the way, it was also my birthday yesterday and due to the extended enhanced community quarantine here in the Philippines, I just had a simple birthday celebration with my family at home.
