The Pregnant Pinay

It was my mom’s birthday last week and I would like to take this opportunity to greet my Mommy a  belated happy birthday! 🙂 I wish you happiness, good health and peace of mind for the many many more years to come!

Receiving the news that her "apo" has been born!

#TBT: Receiving the news that her “apo” has been born!

I really appreciate all the help and advice that you have been giving me with regard to raising Zeeka. I now know how it feels like to be a mom and why is it that you constantly “worry”. Thank you very much for always being there for me and for my family, especially for being there for Zeeka.


It’s true that when you are going through pregnancy, having mom by your side is really very comforting. There are a lot of things that we don’t know, especially if we’re first time parents. We would like to help you out, too, by inviting you to this workshop presented by Manila Workshops, Unilab, Palmer’s and Insular Life.  The workshop is called The Pregnant Pinay workshop.
