About


I’m a work from home mom, married to an athlete with two lovable kids and an adopted stray cat and dwells in a challenging city called Manila.

One of my biggest dislike about my real person is having a very short name.   My real given name is built in THREE letters only.  I used to nag my parents about this and they explained to me the reason.  Maybe later along the (blogging) way I will write a post regarding my parent's reason.  But don't get me wrong, I love my name.  It's just that my peers grew up being called with their cute nicknames during our primary grades and I just wish I had one too.
So I grew up without a nickname.  Because of this I feel like my real name is over used that when I started writing, I used a pseudonym which happens to be longer than my real name - funny!  This pseudonym is the English meaning of my real name.  As of current time quite a number of people know me by this name.  Alas, I now have a nickname.


However, somewhere in the middle of high school or college, my good old friend Mel started calling me "Balut".  I'm not sure how it started, but I think it has something to do with the last letter of my real name - on how it is pronounced in Spanish.  Anyway, until now Mel endearingly calls me Balut and people started knowing me with this name also.  I now have two nicknames which are both longer than my real name (LOL).

So I am Balut! a certified "netizen" from Manila, Philippines.  I have a PhD in wifehood and motherhood and a non-stop training on running, writing and blogging.  Reading along this blog will make you find out why I call my place a "challenging city called Manila".  I assure you it's not only exciting but informative as well.  So read along and have a taste of my hustle and bustle!  Meanwhile... have some balut :)
