Be a World Vision Sponsor
I learned about World Vision from a previous colleague. She just mentioned that she’s sponsoring a child and from there I made my own research.
World Vision is a humanitarian organization with presence all over the world with more than 60 years of experience in helping. They work with families, children, and their communities. They have so many causes such as giving clean water, clothing and shelter, ending hunger, education, women and children advocacy and the like, and all are child focus. (more…)
Gourmet Society has sent me their infographic primer about Filipino Food Dining Etiquette. I thought it’s funny and really informative for non-Filipinos on what to expect whenever they dine with our tribe 🙂

Baby Shower Game Ideas
I asked my cousin, Shayne, if she wants to have a baby shower and I volunteered to organize it for her. Short story, she just asked me to take care of the activities part and assigned me to host the event as well. Now, I don’t do hosting really. No one asked me before so I’ve never tried.

I actually have another blog, www.youdeserveit.me which is where I am writing my thoughts about personal finance, savings, positivity, and everything else in between.

But I still want to talk about my travels, my food adventures, and my kids. So what can I do? The solution – create another blog and that’s how Filipina Expat was born.
What Filipinos Should Expect Living in Dubai?
We might have different reasons why we took that brave move to fly in another country and live thousands of miles away from home. Either we are looking for adventure – new scenery, new life, new people, new environment. It might be a career move for some. Or the constant search for greener pastures and improve our quality of life.
Although our mind is already set with the move, it can’t be avoided that we will feel anxious, uncertain and doubtful if our decision is correct. Assimilating to a new country is not easy. Different culture, different language and you shouldn’t expect that life will be oh so rosy! You need to research about the country and see if you will still be interested once the excitement wears off. (more…)
So, let’s have some real talk. You might think that my life is oh so rosy, full of energy and positivity. But reality is, just like everyone else, I have moments of doubts, fears and mishaps! (more…)
