Motherhood | My 9 Month Pregnancy Journey

Seven years have passed since I gave birth to Matteo, our first born baby. Over those years, a lot of people thought that we were having issues and difficulties in getting pregnant again, but the truth is, I was not ready emotionally and I was so afraid that the same thing might happen to our next baby. Last year, I must admit that I was pressured because I felt that my time is ticking, I am on my 30s and most of my married friends already have babies, some of them even have two. Whenever I see them playing with their kids, I knew then that I wanted to have one. I remembered praying to God, telling Him to be in control of everything. If having a baby is part of His plans for us, then let it be, but if not, we will accept whatever it is that He has in store for us. 

Then, just before 2017 came to its end, we received one of the greatest blessings, I am pregnant and the monthly journey towards motherhood began.  Continue reading “Motherhood | My 9 Month Pregnancy Journey”

Observing Ramadan | What I Learned from Living in a Muslim Country?

Coming from a country where most of the people are Catholic, I have a lot of questions regarding Islam’s culture and tradition when I first arrived here in Qatar, and some of those were regarding the celebration of this holy month that they call Ramadan. Over the years of staying here, I came to learn and understand their ways in observing this event.

Checking Out Mall of Qatar

Last December 24, 2016, we went to the newly opened mall here in Qatar, which is called the Mall of Qatar. It is located in Al Rayyan, which is near the City of Doha. We used google maps to reach the place, but we still ended up getting rerouted because most of the roads leading there are still under construction. There are signs to follow though, but your eyes should be quick in spotting those. Continue reading “Checking Out Mall of Qatar”

Welcome 2017: Start the New Year Right

2017 is just around the corner, are you excited? Before we bid goodbye to 2016, let us first go back and reminisce the laughters, joys, tears, sadness and all the rollercoaster of emotions that this year gave us. Cherish all our new discoveries, accomplishments and life improvements. Remind ourselves of the lessons learned and let go of all the negativities, in order to start fresh. Some of you may already have drafted their resolutions for next year. Like you, I also created a list which I don’t want to call a resolution, instead I would like to call it the way of life I wanted to adopt this coming year. In order to easily remember it, I used the word NEW YEAR.  Continue reading “Welcome 2017: Start the New Year Right”
