Finally, I am sitting in front of my laptop, typing away all my thoughts away. It's been two months since we have moved here in Australia and the boredom is slowly kicking in. When I finally learned to budget my time while doing the household chores and taking care of Leon, I begin to feel that I needed to do something more. Then, the husband finally said - it's time.

It's time to buy me a laptop. 
I didn't expect that boredom will creep in so fast. In under two months since we started this new life, I learned - probably mastered a lot of things. Suddenly I became a cleaning expert, a laundry woman, an instant chef, a nanny and most importantly, a homemaker. It was a quick transition -- fast, but very very hard. From someone who works more than 8 hours a day in the field, talking and interacting with a lot of people, it was hard to stay at home all of a sudden. There was a bit (and still is) a bit of loneliness I feel everytime I find myself exhausted from doing tons of …

Finding Our New Home in Sydney

Finally, I had the opportunity to write something personal since we have moved here in Sydney, or more appropriately, New South Wales. I must say that I have slowly adjusted to this new life we have here. I am finally able to manage my time, learn the household chores (which I'd like to write about too, soon) and master the art of being a stay at home mom to Leon. There are a lot of new things I'd like to share, hence the birth of my facebook page,The Mommy Roves to dish out all the new things happening.

Anyways, among the new things I'd like to share, let me start with our house hunting story. I have already posted a video about it a couple of weeks back on The Mommy Rovesbut there are still a lot of things I'd like to write about - the hunt, the emotions, the confusion, the decision making in finding and getting our house.

My Experience at Polarity Physiotherapy Center

It has been a month since my family and I moved here in Australia and I have a lot of stories to share. I honestly do not know where to begin but let me work on some things that I have failed to write up moments before our flight. Just posting this cute photo of Paolo and my son the moment we landed in Sydney.
A month ago, I had the opportunity to try the one of the manual physiotherapy sessions at POLARITY PHYSIOTHERAPY CENTER located Examiner, West Triangle, Quezon City. Initially, I thought, is Polarity a rehabilitation center? Is it a gym? Is it a spa? I also had those questions in mind when I was setting my appointment to the center. Turns out, Polarity is more than just a spa or a gym. Polarity is an advanced manual physiotherapy and myosfacial release center. They specialize in assessing, treating and prescribing programs to help clients prevent or recover from injuries. Or if you are a regular person like me, they can alleviate a muscle pain that you constantly complain or eve…
