5 Big reasons why you should stay at Seda Atria when in Iloilo City


I was still in my elementary school years when I last set foot in this city of love, Iloilo City. My mother is an Ilongga. Her family came from the town of Calinog located in the central part of Panay Island. I grew up in an Ilonggo-speaking household in a Bisaya community hence, I feel lucky to converse on both dialects.

When my family decided to go to Boracay for our summer vacation this year, I right away suggested that we flew to Iloilo and do the bus ride to Caticlan, the jump-off town to the island. I thought we’ll be hitting two birds at the same time - do beachin’ in Boracay and we get to see Panay countryside and explore Iloilo City thereafter. And that’s exactly what we did.

Iloilo City is a contrast of fast becoming an urbanized city outfitted with modern conveniences with still much of its old and historical character remains an integral part of its culture.

My mom, Elizabeth. A Marks and Spencer Mother’s Day Story

Elizabeth Lopez Unlay: Marks and Spencer Mother's Day Story 2019
My mom is wise in a lot of ways. I learn a lot from her.


At 44, Elizabeth Lopez Unlay, Abeth as she is fondly called by her friends, is a wife to Dave, mother to four kids and a businesswoman. Being all that, she says it’s a blessing and an everyday challenge, and in all the roles she scores high. Though her days are centered around the family, she manages to find herself me time, which is good. 

My name is Francine Cassandra Unlay. I’m 15, the second child and the eldest daughter. Let me tell you why I have the best mom in the world.

Here’s the big picture. We are four siblings, two boys and two girls, aged six to 18. Imagine what my mom is faced with? School work, teenage dilemmas, varying hobbies, age gap management, varied food preferences and mom manages them all quite well.

Deconstructing Bisayan Dry Humor – ‘Itlog mu, noy – orange’



Hello, there my dear readers!

This post came out of my pre-sleep routine watching vlogs of foreigners who came adventuring the Philippines. To be honest, I find some of them annoying and amazing sometimes seeing how they enjoy/dislike navigating Filipino culture and documenting it on their vlogs (and exploiting the gullibility of C-D segments of Pinoy social media netizens to amass subscribers. Well, you may disagree on me on this one but that’s just how I see it, it is my opinion.)

Anyway, If I’m still into ethnography research right now, these vlogs are actually a wealthy source of qualitative information coming from the etic observers outside of Filipino culture. But since I'm so out of school already, it's a suggestion to those who are planning and or still are in the early stage of their research.

How to Balance Work and School More Easily

How to Balance Work and School More Easily


Today, university education has become more and more essential if you want to get the career of your dreams, with many entry-level jobs requiring you to have attained at least a bachelor’s degree. But, the high cost of studying has made it even harder for many students to get through college without working-part time to cover the cost of tuition and living. Even if you are eligible for financial aid, you may still need to work in order to pay for your rent, bills, and other essential living costs while studying.
