Currently February 2017

I’ve been struggling with my writing again. I’m just forever exhausted for some reason. I  have a long backlog of posts that I need to finish and hopefully I can do that before our trip! Anyway, just to update .. 

I AM CURRENTLY …

starting to be mindful of what I eat. I need to maintain (if not lose!) the current weight for health reasons. It’s been a struggle for a very long time. Back in late 2010, I took charge and started running. A few months after, I found out I was pregnant with B. I never got “that” active again after the pregnancy so here I am now. Don’t get me wrong, I did try but somehow I never got my groove and inspiration back so it was all stops and starts. :/

enjoying the cool weather still. A little bit too cold for the beach but we’ll get to that sweet spot where the temperature is just about right. Not too cold, not too hot (and humid!).

planning our US trip (still!). Tickets are booked, visas secured. We just need to find out where to go aside from Disneyland! LOL

celebrating my birthday month (March)! Woohoo. It’s also my blog anniversary so watch out for some giveaways (ehem looking for sponsors. Ha Ha!) 

…feeling … exhausted! LOL. I’m thinking maybe a vacation is just what I need. But then again, with the time difference and the unforgiving jet lag, I’d probably be more exhausted after that trip. 

So what’s up with you? Share in the comments section!

A conference on Innovation

I recently attended the BOLDTalks Innovation 2017 event. This event is something that I look forward to every year because the topics are very engaging and relevant. This year’s event included the a Chef as one of the speakers. You’d ask yourself, what does a Chef have to do with innovation?

How to Pay for Philippine Travel Tax Online

Many Filipinos are unaware that they can now pay travel tax online . For Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) this do not apply. OFW’s are exempted from paying travel tax provided we have a valid Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC). However, we do get visitors from time to time and any amount of time saved by eliminating unnecessary trips to the Department of Tourism or waiting in line at the airport is time that we can spend better on other things.

Blogger in Focus: Working Mother of 2

Blogger in Focus: Working Mother of 2

I’m Haneen, 27 years old, mommy behind Working Mother of 2. I’m Lebanese moved to UAE 5.5 years ago and now living and working in Sharjah. I have a 2.5 years old daughter and a 10 months old son.

Working Mother of 2

How did you start blogging?

I started in November 2015 when I found myself advising expecting and new moms & answering too many questions on motherhood, experience with my kids, deliveries, balancing life between family and work so thought why not giving it a try. Plus, writing is something I love since ever. And thus Working Mother of 2 was born.

What do you write about?

Working Mother of 2 is mainly about my personal experience with motherhood journey. I only write about things I’ve been through, things I tried before & things I’ve learned since 2013 when I had my 1st baby. My primary goal is to help mommies out there in a way or another as I’ve been through it all and maybe what worked to me, will work for other moms and the things I’ve learned might be of benefit for others. So why not have each others’ backs, support and share our experiences and get to learn from each other. Read more
