How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Broken Heart



Don’t get me wrong ok? I’m not broken – hearted. In fact, I’m pretty much in love with God, myself and my kids. I’m taking a rest from this dating game because I would like to be the best version of myself when the right one comes along.

Anyway, this post is meant to entertain only. Walang basagan ng trip pwede? Minsan lang ako magkaroon ng more than 1 hour of free time from work, so might as well do something creative. Ready?

How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Broken Heart

1. Don’t listen to ‘senti‘ songs – Music is too darn powerful. Kung bet mo ibuhos ang mga luha mo kasabay ng araw ng mga puso, e di push mo yan. Pero if you want to spare yourself from having eye – bags, pwede ba ate – IBAHIN MO PLAYLIST MO!

2. Please lang, huwag ka muna mag Facebook (or any other social – media for few days) – Huwag mo patayin ang sarili mo sa inggit. Magbasa ka ng libro, or di kaya you pumunta ka sa mga isolated na lugar – yung sure ka na walang couples. In short, stay at home brad. STAY AT HOME!

3. Manuod ka ng horror or siguro action, pwede na din ang sci – fi, basta walang kissing scenes! – The key is to divert your attention. Sayang wala ng rentahan ng betamax noh? Pero dude, check online for movies na bakbakan. Or di kaya yung mga suspense. Pasakitin mo ang puso mo sa ibang dahilan!

4. Magluto ka at kumain sa bahay nyo – Sabi ko sayo stay at home ka muna e, tapos mag ala – chef kuno ka muna at magluto sa bahay nyo. Kahit di ka marunong, i – push mo yang perfect corned – beef mo! Or maybe, get that microwavable popcorn para partner na ng movie marathon.

5. Padala ka ng flowers and chocolates sa sarili mo – Ayaw mo talaga paawat, sige regaluhan mo sarili mo ng bulaklak or chocolates. Gandahan mo ang dedication ha. Lagay mo, “You made the right decision!”  Kasi bes, mahalin mo naman muna ang sarili mo! Wag kang ano – kaya ka inaano!

Enough of my sarcasm, in reality, you don’t have to be bitter. I would like to think that Valentine’s Day isn’t only for romantic love.

It’s for all kinds of love.

Celebrate it with family, friends and even your colleagues. Or if you want to be on you own, that’s probably a great idea too. If you ask me, I love to travel when I need to mend a broken heart. And no, I don’t take loads of photos. Instead, I embrace the new environment and use the time to keep things in perspective.

Alam nyo, sa isang banda, ok din ang masaktan. Kasi doon ako naging mas malakas, doon ako mas naging matalino sa buhay. Sabi nga nila, kung ano ikinatalino ko sa acads, siyang kinatanga ko sa pagibig (although hindi naman ako super talino talaga – haha!)  Pero hindi naman siguro pagiging tanga ang pagmamahal. Slight, pero hindi totally ano?

Sa totoo lang, I couldn’t give you advice on love. Putek, romantic love life ko nga zero ngayong taon.  Pero siguro gusto kong sabihin na, hindi lang dapat nakadepende ang saya ng puso mo sa iisang tao. Madami ang nagmamahal sayo – baka this time, sila naman ang pagtuunan mo.


I’ll Be Back Soon – I Promise


I can’t explain how busy I am right now. By far, this is my ‘busiest’. To be honest, I sometimes doubt myself if I can still handle things (work and personal life). But nah, the fighter in me would always win. Maybe I am just in that ‘adjustment’ phase and probably I need to wake up earlier to finish my tasks.

Nevertheless, I thank God for all the opportunities. Maybe He is trying to pre – occupy my days so that I won’t have to think much of things that can bring me down.

To this single mom, go fight!

I’ll be back blogging or vlogging, whichever comes easier. For now, damn I need to finish reports.

Love you!

How Do I Organize my Tasks


If you have been reading my previous posts, you’d probably know by now that I work multiple jobs. Some of my friends would ask me how I do such.

Truth be told, it can get overwhelming. But the trick here is to identify which are the most urgent tasks. List it according to priority and try to target 70% from your list.

And when you are done, treat yourself. It can be a pishbol merienda, or a retail therapy from the nearest ukay – ukay!

I’m 28, Saying Goodbye to Broken Relationships and Welcoming Maturity


So yes, I turned 28 yesterday and I threw a simple party for my family.

If you have watched my video, you’d see me teary – eyed because I feel so blessed, not with tangible things but something even better. I think God has given me the opportunity to spend more time with my kids, while increasing my income month after month (not to mention multiple travel opportunities I had last year).

Again, my life isn’t perfect. I am still searching for a lifetime partner. But that doesn’t mean I’m sad or frustrated. Today, I decided to let go of someone who has been a part of my life for the past  years. I did it with a very heavy heart, but I know it was the best choice for the both of us. Wag na kayo magisip kung sino, but I had a special relationship with ‘Voldemort’ – kasi ang peg nya ‘He – Who – Must – Not – Be – Named’. 

Not just about within the confinements of love, but I now believe that if there are certain things that isn’t working out good and that you just feel negatively over it, you might have to reconsider parking it until such time that you can have a better solution – or just leave it and move on.

I guess, you can say I matured a bit given all the experiences life threw at me, and for now I am focused on being a mother and an entrepreneur, doing crazy things to earn more – and possibly pay it forward to other people.

This is BA,  your YMommyB – 28 (not so young in number, but definitely young at heart!)

Happy New Year from YMommyB!


Ok, while my son is playing at Burnham’s playground, my daughter and I are staying inside my dad’s car because unfortunately, she’s a bit sick. (Hoping she’d get better in time for New Year’s Eve)


Anyway, I can truly say that 2016 has been good to me and my family, but I am pretty much sure that I deserve a better 2017 – no less.  Told you to believe in Law of Attraction, didn’t I?

But this year wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies. In fact, I started the year with a very heavy heart. Dear friends, my heart got broken bad! But you know what, glad that it happened early this year. That was actually my motivation to work harder and to focus on being a mother! Alam nyo naman tayong mga ladies pag nainlove, medyo stupid! 😂

I have to admit though, it took me months to heal – actually, I still am. But what the heck, there are more important things that I can focus myself on to, right? RIGHT!

I guess you just need to do the same. I mean, there are certain things in your life that might be a bit misplaced, but please try to focus on things you can improve rather than drowning yourself in a temporary misery.

I don’t really believe that you need to wait for a new year to change, as I think NOW is always the BEST time.

But let me join the bandwagon. Use the start of the year to make new plans, to reshape or probably to reinvent yourselves. ☺

Happy New Year from your YMommyB!

Note: I typed this using my phone so if you see grammar mishaps or spelling booboos, just try to be logical. ☺

Changing My Theme in Preparation for the New Year


Gosh! I can’t stress enough how I missed writing for my personal blog. But you see, I have bills to settle and BER months are supposed to be costly. So yes, I decided to work my arse off first(which is fine) because I was able to literally fly with my jobs.

Balancing Multiple Employers 

You see, I still have a lot of things to finish. With multiple employers,  my friends ask me how I do it. Well, I always have my pen and notebook with me. Yes, I’m a bit of an old – school and there’s something about writing my plans that keeps me organized. I know it’s not just me!


2016! A blessing 

I have been blessed and ready to receive more blessings. With my jobs, travel opportunities and love I get from my family, I think I’m set for a bigger one next year.

Changing my Blog’s Theme

If you haven’t noticed, I changed my blog’s theme. I don’t know – I have the habit of changing and rearranging stuff when I’m planning something big. It has a psychological effect on me that I have to start anew. It works! Maybe it will for you too.
