Occupation A Wife and a round-a-clock Mom...
Location Chiba - prefecture, Japan
Introduction I'm a "Pinay" originally from Manila. A wife to a wonderful man and he is a Japanese National. A proud mama of three lovely kids. I live here in Japan and I also work part-time as a translator. My blog speaks for itself. I love life!!! I love all things alive e.g. Nature - (trees, plants) ; Human; and yes, Animals. The japanese characters 愛すべきもの全てに is read as Ai Subeki Mono Subeteni, meaning "For all my Loves". Yup, I write about all stuffs I love and for those whom I love. I guess I'm one of those wandering soul who writes in order to keep her sanity intact in this increasingly chaotic universe. Just trying to put what I found into words and would like to share it with people who might care. Also, I write for my own enjoyment and all these thoughts are solely mine. My life basically revolves around my children, my other-half, and my inveterate, lifetime advocacy for AUTISM. Family, Time, and Friends are the things I value most in life. Much THANKS for visiting! Hop along and you're welcome to join me in this life's Journey. It could be a joyous, smooth, settled ride; or a difficult, bumpy, jarred adventure. One thing sure is, it's going to be a changing, roller-coaster LIFE! :-)
