My friends call me Chin chin. I'm a Christian stay at home mom with 5 wonderful kids - 2 boys (Emmuel and Yuan) then 3 girls (Kristel, Janel and Angel). Ang dami no? That's the usual comment I hear from friends. I've been married for 10 years now, so if you do the calculations, I gave birth more or less every 2 years. My family and friends are amazed at how I could take care all of 5 little children (ages between 1 and 9) all by myself. You heard it right, without any yaya and no close relatives (we do not live in our home country). I thank God for giving me a husband who is loving and supportive in taking care of the kids. I also thank God for the strength and wisdom that He gives me everyday.

I also homeschooled my first 3 children during their preschool years. It was a very fulfilling experience being my children's first teacher literally. However, the 2 boys had been going to private school for 2 years now, the next 2 girls will be joining them in school this June. So, I'll be left with my bunso at home while the others are in school.
I started my first blog Inspirational Life Quotes in July 2007. That's when I was introduced to the concept of blogging. I liked it and then started this blog by December of the same year. However, my blogging activity dwindled when I found out I was pregnant with my 5th baby around May 2008. I just became active in blogging again last year after giving birth to my bunso. I have started 3 other blogs since then - Praise Memoirs, Sunday School Lessons for Kids and PeopleString 101. Aside from blogging, I also joined HubPages 7 months ago and have already published 11 hubs. Hope you can also visit my hubs.
That's all for this post for the BC Blogger's Party. Thanks for reading and may God bless you.
