Artsy Craftsy Time at Kiddy arts SM Moa - a Review

This is an honest review of an activity that my kid tried at Moa the other week.

My little boy begged me to allow him to try this fun art/craft thing at SM Moa. The shop has kiddie tables and chairs that kids would use while doing their fun arts/crafts thing.

They've got this cute designs that a kid can fill with colors then bake, then have the feel of a soft, jelly-like output that... I don't know how to describe. Hahahha! (Basta parang dinidikit sa glass/window na decor).

The little boy got a  drawing (about 6x4 inches) which costs P140. The bigger one is P230. Ayaw kong pumayag sa malaki kasi hindi ko naman alam kung anong kakalabasan.

Mr. Hammerhead was his choice

Being a Working Mom is Challenging (but it doesn't mean we can't have fun!)

Being a mom is hard work. But when a mom works full time, things get more complicated and more challenging. I'm not complaining though. I have son who loves me to the moon and back and a husband who has pledged his heart and life to me. Life may have its ups and downs, but I will always be thankful to God for this life.

One example is my trip to the Bicol Region.

Day 1, I arrived in Lezagpi then went straight to Sorsogon to our branch office. After that, we went to San Benon in Sorsogon.

Day 2, I woke up at 2 am, left at 3 am to go to the port in Bulan, and catch the earliest boat to Ticao, Masbate. From San Fernando, I rode a habal-habal (motorbike) for about an hour To San Jacinto, to look for a place to spend the night in. After lunch, I rode back to San Fernando in a habal-habal  to work.
