Over the past 10 years or so, I've assumed different voices in blogging/writing, in that my perspectives have become more specific and interest-oriented, creating what I thought was the need to have various clandestine blogs. What I've done thus far is combine those various blogs into one big mess that is tetkelly.wordpress.com. A few highlights:… Continue reading Amalgamation, Complete
The first time I tried using Uber in the Philippines, my driver drove to my destination without me. I simply wasn't ready to go, having only woken up a few minutes before my "conyo" Uber driver turned up. Apologies were given of course and I said I'll definitely pay for the ride, I didn't have… Continue reading My Uber Story: Before Uber Becomes A Thing of the Past

Also, I've been cautious to not scare my mom in case she reads it, not that there's anything to be… Continue reading Long Overdue Update
What is that smell? It's from the next block, but I can smell it. #supersmell I don't have nausea today. Am I still pregnant? I wonder if I'm having a boy or a girl? If we are having a boy, second hand clothing from my son! If we're having a girl, I can't wait to… Continue reading 10 Random Thoughts
Once upon a time in the land down under, there lived a not so young lady who was with child. She would conjure up dishes reminiscent of those from banquets she frequented in her former land. There were days when she would cook up a storm in her kitchen, using select ingredients that could feed an… Continue reading The Little Hungry Lady
After a couple of weeks of feeling so enslaved by my bed, today is looking upward indeed, with my nausea completely lifting. I feel so much more energized. Maybe it's a coincidence or that the sick phase is over for now, but I wanted to document what I had done differently today: I've completely eliminated… Continue reading Back from the dead!
There are awful days, then there are woeful days. The past two days have been such. Tiredness, headaches, nausea pretty much all the time except for a few hours during day when I feel fine enough to get up and do stuff. And I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but I'm just looking forward… Continue reading Woeful days
