Christmas

Unexpected Christmas Wishes Coming True

It’s true what they say… when you least expect it, that’s when the magic happens. For the most part of the year, and the last 3 years before that, I thought we will have the same Christmas as before — we used to live in a tiny pad, so decorating our home for Christmas was not an option then. Instead, we’d go to a hotel resort here in Cagayan de Oro City and spend an overnight stay for both Christmas and New Year. Although on our first Christmas here in 2017, we celebrated it at our farm with our people. I’ve still yet to blog and vlog about those amazing hotel resort stays we did but I really plan to (next year, hopefully, as throwback features). Oh wait, I did blog about our Seda Centrio New Year Stay.  

Well, this year, (in a way, thanks to this pandemic — we got to transfer to a cozy house — looking at the silver lining here), my long overdue wish of spending Christmas in a beautiful, cozy home I personally decorated, hosting a party if possible, and just chilling and pigging out over a simple Noche Buena feast in our pajamas — finally came true!!! I’m so happy, I really can’t stop expressing it! I’ve been saying it on my social media posts and even offline to Mahal. I’m just really so happy. Hallelujah!

How to Celebrate Major Holidays During a Pandemic: Halloween Feature + a Guide

In case I haven’t said it enough, Halloween is my most favorite time of the year! So we celebrated it in a major way the past month. Maybe because I feel like I’m still a Wiccan at heart (I used to cast spells, call out spirit guides, and share my experiences in my old Wiccan blog), but more importantly, for some reason, I turn into a child-like nymph whenever Halloween is around the corner! Teehee. Suffice it to say that I’d like to celebrate it for as long as I can, even after it’s over. Haha! So this blog post here is my last attempt to still hold on to it. After I publish this, my next blog posts will be about other aspects of my life like Tuz’s exciting 5th birthday, our everyday life, travels, Christmas, etc.

Before the pandemic, and as far as I can remember, during Halloween, I used to go out, attend costume parties, and even host events during Halloween. It’s the most magical time of the year for me and doing those things really made me happy! I know it’s hard now that we are living in this new normal but it is still possible. I made it possible, and I will continue to make it possible. Haha! Watch my Halloween vlog below:

TV5 Guesting: That Time I Cooked On National Television [Throwback Feature #1]

THROWBACK THURSDAY!

This was circa 2009! My online moniker then was Sexy Nomad and I got invited by TV 5 to cook on air at their late-night TV show “How Bout Your Place Tonight?” So many fun memories here! I remember taping this after the segment with Ryan Agoncillo while his wife Juday was just watching the taping of his hubby with me.

Good thing I was able to keep a copy by recording the TV show when it aired. Today, I just suddenly thought of putting it up here and on my Youtube Channel for posterity’s sake. After all,  as the saying goes, you can never reach your life’s destination if you don’t know how to look back at where you came from. And this is one way of taking a look back at who I was before. Maybe, I’ll slowly upload to my Youtube channel those old videos I have of my TV stints before.

Supermoon 2016 and a Magic Spell

It’s full moon tonight and it’s not just any ordinary full moon — it’s gonna be a SuperMoon — scientifically known as perigee-syzygy when a full moon is closest to the Earth you feel like you can almost touch it!

The SuperMoon won’t happen for another 18 years (Nov. 25, 2034 acccording to NASA) and this will be the biggest and brightest in 70 years so better get your telescopes, binoculars and cameras ready for one bright evening tonight! And for a Wiccan like me, better get my magical spell ready too.  Teehee.  Continue reading

Death – Tarot Card of Great Transformations

I first mentioned about my use of tarot cards in one of my first few posts – First Time Mom’s Daily Routine. I have a separate blog about it, babywiccan.blogspot.com, which I don’t update anymore because like I said in my very first post, I want to put all my virtual selves here on MomTraNeur.

So having said that, this is the first time that I am going to share with you here one of my most powerful tarot card readings. Continue reading
