About


Hi! Welcome to my blog, Mumsified.

My name is Josiet. I am a wife and partner to Eric and a mom to EJ. We're Filipino expats currently living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Our family's motto is "home is where the heart is" because we don't have a permanent home. LOL!

Having said that, we have traveled to several cities around the world and have lived in three different countries now: Maldives (3 years); Malaysia (1.5 years) ; and right now, we call Cambodia our home (since 2009).

I started this blog to document my son's growing up days, one sunny day in Maldives. Now this blog has morphed and grown into so many things.

I still write about my son. But mostly, I just write anything and everything about our expat lives and our many (mis)adventures.

Thanks for reading!

UPDATE:

We're no longer expats. We moved back to the Philippines just last month (June 2016). Guess what, I was ecstatic to move back to the Philippines but right now I am experiencing what they call "reverse culture shock". Understandably, Philippines is not what it was 10 years ago. So right now, I feel like being in a foreign place surrounded by some familiar places. Kinda weird. I know.

EJ, our son, asked me how long we're going to stay in the Philippines. I was caught off guard. Oo nga, how long are we going to stay here? For good? For a year or two?

Well, I don't know. Wherever we maybe, as long as we're together, it's perfectly fine with me :)
