True happiness in a face

What is true happiness?

In the hustle and bustle of this technological age, what actually makes us happy?

The answer depends on the person – personality, needs, wants, etc. Each and every one of us has something that genuinely evokes true happiness. Many are driven by the desire to acquire wealth in the form of real estate, gadgets, appliances, clothing, cosmetics, etc.

If you will look back to your younger years, what made you smile?

It can be as simple as the delight of enjoying the warm waters of a shallow bay with black sand in your hands.

If you surround yourself with objects (or even people) just to make up for an emptiness in your heart, it might not be true happiness at all.

Time to wake up


True happiness.

What truly makes you happy?

This is a wake up call to those who are actually wearing a mask of joy, when they are actually blue inside.

Take some time away from technology and work by spending a day in a tranquil island or bask under the warm sun in a scenic beach or simply spend time with family members. It might be time to go back and rediscover your true happiness.

If you are wondering where the first photo was taken, it was during our vacation last year at Palina Greenbelt Ecopark at Brgy. Cablatan, Cagay, Roxas City. The second photo is taken at Sampaguita Gardens in Kalibo, Aklan.

This is definitely a Face that is worth sharing.

A picture of pure and true happiness.


Motherhood – What is life?

It is not too late to greet every mother out “Happy Mother’s Day!” A mother has always been there from the start even up to a point where you already have your own family. You can count on your mom to listen to your secrets and heartaches as a youth up to family issues that are inevitable part of life.

Just like with other first-time mothers out there, being a first-time mother can be tough. Obviously, there are a lot of changes I had to go through but I am glad to say that I am contented and happy where I am right now.

Missing the perks of youth

While some mothers still get to enjoy the perks enjoyed while young, most actually do not fully engage on these so-called thrills in life.

This is applicable to me since I rarely go out to parties, night outs or other thrills enjoyed by the youth today. Of course, some social events cannot be avoided, still they are fun but you will always have your family in mind. Understandably, it is not just about you anymore.

As a stay-at-home mother, I was able to watch over my child while working at the same time as an online writer. Actually, it was tough at first, since some do not grasp what my online work was all about. After some time, it was eventually accepted and I consider my work as a blessing.

Responsibilities, responsibilities

Of course, as a mother, the responsibility starts piling up and you have to face them all. Well, that is an inevitable aspect in life and I am steadily adjusting to the added load.

All it takes is perseverance and patience as well as the mindset to make it through. Before you know it, you are simply playing out a regular routine in life.

Motherhood is definitely a blessing in a woman’s life regardless of other factors unique to each woman out there. Even though responsibilities pile up and fun is “not” fun anymore, at the end of each day, it is truly everything and worth it.

Once again, “Happy Mother’s Day!” to all mothers out there. Just remember that it is not only one day to show how special your mother is, but make it a point that each and every day is special for her.

We all deserve a hobby

What is your hobby?

Gaming throughout the years

Even at a young age, I have always been a gaming enthusiast. It all started with my wish to get a hand-held “brick-game” from a mall. I always check out the stall, eying any of the games there. In no time, I was given one which I devotedly played on.

Of course, my fascination did not stop there. My gaming needs just moved on to the next level. At that time, I was already immersed on computer (PC) games with some simple ones that kept me entertained for hours.

The next gadget that was given to me was a Family Computer where I played various games.


I was definitely a gamer and it eventually move on the next level – Gameboy by Nintendo.

When I first heard about this gaming device by Nintendo, I was eager to have one as well. I had mine back in 1996 and was able to play various games that provided me with hours of entertainment.

With the availability of other more advanced gaming consoles such as the PlayStation by Sony, I also wanted one but sad to say, I was not lucky at that time.

The Sims fever

Since I was not able to try out the other gaming consoles, I simply settled for PC games. I initially started playing first-person shooter games (Doom, Counter Strike) or even war games that involves tanks and airplanes. Later on, I discovered a game that became my all-time favorite until today – The Sims.


The Sims by EA Maxis was one of the PC games that brought out the gamer in me.


The Sims 2



The Sims 3 has greatly improved gameplay along with great expansion packs.

Until today, I am playing The Sims 3 but not that often anymore. Now that The Sims 4 is available in the market, I am planning to purchase one to try it out.

What I like most about The Sims games is the building mode. I have always enjoyed creating a house and arranging the furniture, appliances, etc. It is one part of the game that I literally spend hours on.


The Sims 4 is one of the much-awaited game last year.

Hopefully, I might be able to try out the latest games in the next coming months. Here is the system requirements for the game.

Aside from the usual hobbies that many enjoy such as reading, watching TV, shopping, etc., each of us has one hobby that truly speaks of oneself. As for me, I have always been a gaming enthusiast, I admit it. Well, there you have it, an overview of my gaming hobby throughout the years.
