Hi. Now that you’re here, let’s talk about (*ahem*) me.
They call me Tita Buds (it rhymes with goods and moods) and this is me in a nutshell: middle child (with all the syndromes supposedly attendant to it), middle-aged (early 40s), and terribly middlebrow (my tastes make some of my friends — them intellectual snobs — roll their eyes).
I live in a tiny house that’s overran by books, mostly-unused kitchen gadgets, a sexy spouse (hehe!), two dogs, and a constant stream of 80s music. I am irritatingly perky, laugh a lot and like to surround myself with people who are similarly inclined. I am aunt to nine pamangkins, thus the Tita part (it means ‘aunt’ in Pilipino, but you are welcome to call me Tita anytime). I collect bookmarks,
haven’t replaced my Nokia phone since 2006, love to travel, love futbol and pepper my sentences with swear words in the Bikol dialect. I also have the appetite of a well-muscled construction worker. That’s of, not for. ;)
What This Blog Is About:
I blog about the places I go to during my occasional travels as a wide-eyed tourist. If you like travel posts with lots of photos and enough detail to make you feel like you’re there yourself, I’m sure you’ll find those here.
In between the travel posts, I also blog about the ordinary and everyday stuff that make me smile.
I post twice a week on average, including weekends.
(Samples of what I usually blog about are in my Top Posts page, including the two (yey!) which were featured on WordPress’ Freshly Pressed.)
I once read a book excerpt in O magazine (see? middlebrow!) in which the author wrote about her ‘House of Love and Bragging’. For her, it was a place where friends and family could talk about anything, including the silly and shallow, disappointment and regret, and happiness and pride, all without holding back.
Well, this is my Blog of Love and Bragging. Come in, pull up a seat, feel free to browse the shelves. And I hope you don’t mind the dogs.
I’d love to hear from you. Just drop me a note in the comments section (so it’s easier for me to find you) or email me at: titabuds(at)gmail(dot)com.
