Hi There! My name is Ays. I’m a Filipina wife and mum living in New Zealand. Welcome to my blog!
A bit of a background
I was an IT professional living and working in Singapore for a really long time and I have been blogging since 2004 (can you believe that?!). My old blog is still up and it’s nice to keep it out there, because it shows my journey from a single, travel-obssesed working girl, to married woman and then: mother!
In 2016, our small family moved to New Zealand in search of a simpler and relatively stress-free lifestyle. As of this writing, I am enjoying and learning a lot in my new role as a stay-at-home Mum, taking care of our daughter and slowly getting used to NZ life. Will I go back to the workforce? For sure! We just don’t have a timeline yet.
What my blog is about
Notes From our Corner is my way of documenting our family’s adventures and discoveries as we make a home abroad. I also post recipes that I try in my kitchen, my random finds from the internet, the occasional DIY project and books that I’ve read. I’ll also write down my thoughts–nothing too dramatic, just things that I discover about myself as I experience marriage and motherhood.
You will also find posts about our previous life in Singapore and different places that we’ve visited.
Hopefully, you enjoy these stories and find something inspiring and useful. I hope you come back, yes? Yes!
The fine print a.k.a. Houserules
Since this is my online space, most of the views and opinions expressed in this blog are mine. I say “most” because I do have guest writers whose views and experiences will not necessarily be the same as mine, but they’re welcome here, because I’m open to different ideas too.
I will monitor and not publish nor respond to any profane, abusive and rude comments. Just be nice, ok!
Most of the images on this site are mine, except where noted (I link to the source and attribute to the owner). Please be nice and contact me if you would like to use any of my photos in your website. Photos provided by guest writers for their posts may be edited for size and quality, and will be attributed to the owner.
I never share personal information with third parties–because that’s not nice, and who has time for that?
Or email me (for just about anything) at notesfromourcorner(at)gmail(dot)com.
Work with me!
