Just when I thought that my last week was busy, this week was definitely the busiest I have ever been. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My parents came home from Saudi Arabia to begin their relaxing retirement life. My father have been working in Saudi Arabia for 33 years when we followed him there a few years after. The Sandbox as we loving call it has been our second home to us and it will always have a special place in our hearts. My parents said their bittersweet goodbye to Saudi Arabia last Saturday. I know they will miss the good ol’ days spent there. Before heading to the Philippines, they flew here in Singapore to meet Naj. They haven’t met him since he was born. They were so excited to meet their new grandson.
Usually after work, I would head down to their hotel and I would take them to some food spots and other touristy locations together with Naj, my sister and my hubby.
With my parents being here and me playing tourist guide, I was also invited to three blogger events! Those few nights I was invited, I have to ask my sister to do the sightseeing tour for my parents while I follow them after my events.
This was in one of the blogger events I been. I was happy to bring my hubby as my plus one. I am so excited to tell you all of three blogger events I been and an app that is God’s gift to foodies. I am also very happy that I’ve met Frannywanny, a Filipino food blogger that I have been following for years.
This week, I also took a mini-workshop on food mobile photography and food styling at Bloesem. I know I really need to improve the quality of my pictures and since I am taking a lot of food shots, I really needed it. I learned a lot from Trisha Toh.
Here is a sample of what I did. Please don’t be harsh. I am still learning.
And my activities didn’t stop from there. This weekend also I am having classes for my Family Medicine Graduate Diploma class. Yes, that is a Saturday and a Sunday. My week was definitely very very productive. Phew!

How was your weekend? Was it as packed as mine too? Maybe next week, I will have a little breather and go on a slow pace. Then I can start drafting a schedule for my son and household chores for me and make a weekly menu. Life is best if there is a schedule. I don’t know, thats just me. Bye for now. I am heading to my class now.
