About Me



Hello, welcome to my blog!

I am a mom to two adorable girls and wife to a rockstar husband. I am also a loving ATE to annoying yet supportive siblings. I am a dedicated friend and kick-ass corporate slave among other roles.

This is actually my second blog. The first one I named after my eldest daughter www.alessaundrei.blogspot.com. But then when the second kid arrived, I decided to create a new one and hopefully the last.

Why, www.lifes-a-maze.blogspot.com? Aside from the word MAZE which is an acronym for Mhalou, Alex, Zabbie and Earl, I also think that life is like a maze. It's like we're in this one huge labyrinth that we need to unravel and figure out which way to go. But no matter how far we've come inside this maze and often find ourselves lost, the maze always ends somewhere. That's for sure!

So join me in my quest in solving this one big maze which is life. But you can also hang in there, watch me in my daily conquest and if I ever fall, please do give a little push and lots and lots of love. Okay?

TITAN

More than three months ago, we added a new member to our small family. At first, there were some hesitations especially coming from the husband. My daughters have been begging to have a pet dog since time immemorial. After nonstop prodding from Alex and Zabbie, husband finally gave up and we welcome the first family pet named Titan.






Titan is mix breed of Dachshund and Yorkshire Terrier according to her previous owner Tina. He came to us when he was still a month old and our life totally turned upside down from then on. At first, we thought that it was a bad idea having a dog. Aside from the additional expenses for vaccination, dog food, dog shampoo, accessories etc., Titan is quite a handful. He nibbles almost anything from slippers to furniture and even the grocery bag lying on the floor. My favorite pair of shoes was one of the casualties.
But despite that, we learn to love him and considered him part of our family. In fact, we sometimes spoil him like a baby and bring him along to f…

One Proudest Mommy Moment

When it comes to parenting, I'm not really the hands-on type. I am a working mom and sometimes work gets in the way and you leave it all to the yaya to do some of the roles that a mom should portray --- like for instance, being the tutor. Yep, I'm guilty as charged when it comes to assisting Alex review her lessons and study for an exam. I'm just happy to have a yaya is also smart enough to teach Alex although I am a bit worried especially when it comes to pronunciations and some things that the yaya may not be knowledgeable about.

Well, I got the biggest surprise of my life yesterday when my daughter Alex received 3 medals and another recognition during their graduation and recognition rites. She got the Silver Medal for Academic Excellence, Best in Logic and Best in Reading. On top of these 3 medals, she also received a certificate of recognition for being a Remarkable Reader. It was one proudest mommy moment indeed! However, I was disappointed because the husband wasn&#…

Palawan Experience: Part Two (Underground River)

This is the highlight of our trip. Excited would be an understatement. The Puerto Princesa Subterranean National Park is now among the new 7 Wonders of Nature. I say, the place deserves to be called as such.
We were picked-up as early as 7:30am. It takes a lot of effort from both me and my husband to wake up that early but we have no choice.Showing again some photos for this experience...

Pit Stop --- stuff sold here are overpriced!

We arrived in Sabang Port after more than two hours. Our tour guide tried to get us to the next boat ride to the Underground River but was told to go back at 11am. So, we're having early lunch then the tour. 
For lunch, we were brought to this stretch of resorts and restaurants in Sabang. The lunch wasn't ready so we took pictures while waiting. 

Nice beach...I wanted to take a dip but the waves were huge!

A new high-end resort...one of the episodes of Going Bulilit was shot here
This was lunch...yummy!!!
Finally, the boat ride that will bring us to the 7…
