Mama in a Red Fitted Tank Top


Monday Meanderings





I picked up my brother and family early morning Tuesday, brought them to my Mama’s place..and lo and behold. But who welcomed us? A vision of senior citizen ‘sexiness’ came forth to greet us!!! Mama was outfitted in a very form fitting neck-plunging tank top bought by Sharon, a cousin. Thanks to the ever reliable foam industry her missing breast was not missed at all. :) (She has had a mastectomy).


After telling her that she looked gorgeous and ravishing, I said to her, ‘Ma, don’t you ever go walking in the boulevard like that ok?’ ‘Why not?’, she impishly smiled.



 Our popular Rizal Boulevard where everyone loves to stroll and hang out.



‘Because when I come back and visit you, you might have a foreign boyfriend already!’ I also naughtily retorted – with a big laugh.


And you know what my Mama answered? ‘Why not? hehe’


Right at the moment when she said this a sudden gust of wind coursed through to where we were all seated and toppled over the vase of flowers my mom loving arranged for Papa. Of course the vase broke and the flowers were splayed and scattered all over the ground.



 I love this picture of Papa and Mama



‘Hala, Ma, Papa is here with us and is showing that he is furious with what you just said’ I was just joking and we all laughed, but then we looked at each other as if saying, It could have really been Papa! Peace Papa. We love you very much. We know you are in heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ. ♥


I think the message was very clear to my Mom. That clinched it no scheduled sexy strolls on the boulevard for my dear mother. Her hot red-fuchsia cleavage revealing tank top remains for domestic use only. Thank goodness for that huge gust of wind! 😀



 Me and Mama



My Mama has a Phd in Instructional Technology from Syracuse, New York. She has retired but continues to be very active in church and the community. She shares the Gospel every night to her extended family. She loves to garden and do constant research on the health benefits of herbs which she grows in her yard.

Tiny Apartments: In a Hongkong State of Mind


Saturday Space Matters





The title of this post is a tad misleading. I started looking for those tiny apartments or flats that I used to live in while I was working for an airline in Hongkong. But I slowly veered to the luxury serviced flats. Need you ask why? Take a look at what I came across. At prices ranging from HKD $20,000 to 35,000 – which roughly translates to PHP 110,000 to 191,000 – I look around at my cozy home, at barely a fraction of what these Hongkong flats are asking for, I feel like I am in Buckingham Palace for free!


Makes me want to sell my provincial lifestyle to all the foreigners willing to pay a hefty premium price for a tiny space in a congested city and say ‘You guys are in the wrong place!’ But shhhhh…I think I prefer that my little haven remain my secret. :)


Don’t worry, I go back full circle to my original intent of intriguing, captivating and mesmerizing you with the innovative ways one can stretch a tiny space into one spacious dwelling. At the end of this post is a video that does just that. It is all in how you look at things. This video is an example of ‘thinking outside the box’ at its best.


In the meantime scroll down and enjoy the images. On the way to the video, you can pick up a lot of design ideas for a relatively small home. Take a look:



 This orange service flat in Sheung Wan is at Hkd $20,000/month









 Boutique Economical Flat in Sai Ying Pun at USD $165 a night







 Likin’ the red sofa.  This flat at Wanchai goes for Hkd $29,000/month



 Jordan, Kowloon…going for Hkd 22,000/month





Take note of the black Chandelier – really nice



Glass tile blocks enclosing the kitchen area



 Swivel TV – great idea



 A good use of space. I am getting a lot of design ideas here.





 Below the dining table is  the washing machine. I guess the table folds up.


Gary Chang, an architect, calls this the “Domestic Transformer.” Check out the video of Chang in his apartment below.


He designed his 344 square foot apartment in Hong Kong to be able to change into 24 different designs, all by just sliding panels and walls.”




You should have seen how I managed to stretch my teeny tiny Hongkong flat then. Now I wish I took a lot of pictures. The lesson is that no matter where you live and what address you have, how big or how small your living space is, a creative mind will always manage to transform any area into a beautiful house that one can call ‘home’.
