Welcome to my blog.
My name is Nathalie and you can call me nats. I am a stay at home mother of two. I rely on the internet for most of my question. So if there is something that can’t be found and I need to know it in the hard way, I experience it, write them down, and post it online. And that is what this blog is all about. Expect the content of this blog to come from real experiences.
I am currently based in Makati Philippines with my common law husband, my two babies and his family. As of the moment, we are doing a testing stage because we are planning to move in either Ortigas area (we are thinking of purchasing a condominium unit), where my husband is working or if staying in our house and lot in Nuvali. You might be asking why not stay in Makati? The place is not good for the babies since we can smell cats poop etc.
We love to travel as well, not to mention places around the Philippines. We visited Thailand, Hong Kong, Macau, Korea, and Japan. I also been to Malaysia, California and Texas with my mother, grandmother, sister, and brother. Hoping to visit more countries soon when kids are ready to travel. I have no idea when will that be, do you?
During my free time when I wasn’t a mother yet, and when I wasn’t travelling, I love to exercise. I usually get sick when I don’t work out. I am very much concern with how I look because I was raised that way. My mother usually tells herself, that she like to be slim etc. and I made sure I get enough facial time, massage time, and eat healthy food. Now, with my two babies, I prepare their milk, food, fix their clothes, and of course their toys. Therefore, a lot less time for myself. Also, if I have more energy, I fix my common law husband’s clothes and things. That is more like being a nanny and a maid. Now, that I am a mother, what I do during my free time is rest and do nothing.
Before I became a mother, I worked as an agent in two call centers. I also tried to work in Sales but I decided to quit because it was so emotionally stressful. I tried doing business full time but seemed to find my field in the technical world. I was at first in helpdesk, then found myself in the IT industry.
My career now rather as a mother, I am also my husband’s secretary 🙂 I also help out with anything in the house. I am a technical support when it comes to my husband’s parents. Unfortunately, cooking is the last thing you would ask me because I don’t cook. I am not sure if I know the basics of cooking. This won’t stop me from trying though. My cooking category in this blog would be easy cooking. If you have suggestions that I can look up to, it would be a great help me.
Please do share any thoughts or comments with us. We’d like to hear from you!
