Meet Winkie

Winkie is a 30-something corporate slave who simply considers blogging as her stress-reliever from all the hustle and bustle of her daily office life. She maintains this online journal to keep her friends abreast on some worthy-to-share ongoings of her life.

She’s an only child and lives with her ever-kalog Mom. She loves to travel and explore places at her own pace. She’s a self-confessed coffee freak and caffeine addict. She can’t live without Coke Light and Starbucks Mocha Frapuccino (venti!!!). She’s a shoe afficionado and Havaianas collector. She’s a true blue mall rat, loves hanging out in malls with or without the company of friends or her Mom. But above these all, she’s a friend. She values her friends a lot and consider them as one of her greatest treasures.

May this simple personal blogsite give you a short, fun and sometimes melodramatic peek into Winkie’s world.

Happy reading, dear friends!

      umm…can you tell me what exactly a blogger does :$ — sorta new to this whole thing and it makes me wonder – thanks 🙂

      hi dion! according to, a blog is a journal (online diary) made available on the Internet/web by any individual. Thus, that individual is called a blogger. 🙂

      so, are you a new blogger? why not leave your url so we could also visit your blogsite.

      hey, thanks for peeking in 🙂

  5. February 13, 2009 11:15 am

    sus, konti pa nga lang yang pics na yan. liliit na ng sobra pag nilagay ko pa ung iba. di naman halata na adik ako sa pic, de vah?!

    oist, wag mo ngang ipagkalat na naging tayo! baka isipin ng mga tao na mababa ang standards ko! 😛

    Hi Winkie! I’m Micah from Summit Media. Sorry, I couldn’t find any other way to contact you apart from leaving a comment. I wanted to ask if I can interview you for an article I’m doing about singlehood (specifically, about how it’s okay to be single). Please let me know if you’re willing. 🙂 Medyo rush siya (sorry, I just found your blog now! 😀 ) so I’ll need to get your thoughts, if ever, by Tuesday morning. You can email me at the address I put. Thanks very much!

    Hi Micah! I glad you found my site. I would be more than willing to participate in that. 🙂

    Hi Miss Winkie.. Just dropped by your site.. Got your blog from Jason’s.. Hehe, I’m new in the modern blogging industry.. So I’m just dropping by to meet and greet other veteran bloggers.. Hehe.. 🙂

    I aim to be a regular here.. 🙂 TY..

    Thanks Dick and welcome to the blogosphere. Naku, I’m no veteran blogger… this is just my simple online diary. Puro kakulitan lang ang mga sinisulat ko dito. But just the same, thanks for thinking about me that way.

    You are very much welcome to be one of the official “tambay” of my e-tahanan.

  27. September 26, 2009 4:13 pm

    Very entertaining visit on your blog. Got your blog from rickspot which is also a work of a pure genius.

    hello winks, malaki ba yong bag mo pag nag travel ka? baka pwede akong sumama….

    basta ba 15 kilos ka lang eh… pasok ka sa luggage ko. otherwise, excess baggage ako! hahaha!

  30. November 10, 2009 8:20 am

    Hi Winkie (ganda ng name),
    Bagong salta lang po galing sa goodtimesmanila, at napansin ko agad parehas pala tayo ng template pero mas maganda ang site mo kse may magagandang pix sa header at higit sa lahat nakakatuwa. 😉

    And I will definitely drop by more often kse nde ko pa nabasa at na-browse ang ibang postings about you and your Mom’s adventure and journey.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂


    Hi Metalpig,

    Oo nga, pareho tayo ng layout. Mahilig ka rin pala sa simple and clean layout. Apir tayo jan! 🙂 Artist ka?

    Marami na akong posts on travel with Mommy. Feel free to browse my older entries… at nawa’y maaliw ka sa pagbabasa.

    Salamat sa pagbisita… asahan ko ang pagbalik mo! 🙂

    P.S. Ano sa tagalog ang metalpig? Bakal na baboy? O Baboy na bakal? May difference di ba? Hehehe! Panggulo lang po! 😛

    • November 12, 2009 7:41 am

      G’day Winkie!
      Nde ko alam kong matatawag talaga ako na artist, kse nde naman ako lumalabas sa mga pelikula at lalong nde ako marunong kumanta… ang gulo rin ano? 😉

      about metalpig? naisip ko lang kse na pwede akong magnegosyo ng baboy o kaya magbenta ng bakal, pero sa palagay ko bakal na baboy. Nung una gusto ko metalboss, kso lang parang tunog talbos ng kamote ang dating kaya nagdecide nlang ako sa metalpig… heheheh

      anyway, bumalik talaga ako rito para manggulo este magbrowse pala… 🙂 kya kung okey lang sa’yo paminsan-minsan papasok ako dito para magkomento ng kung ano-ano.

      Syanga, maraming salamat sa espasyo! 😀

      Gud day to you too, Metal Pig!

      Napansin ko lang na puro work of art ang features mo so I thought artist ka. Mali ba ako?

      Natawa ako sa MetalBoss… sounds like “may talbos”. Di nga maganda pakinggan. Metalpig is a nice screen name though. Very creative.

      Naku, feel free na manggulo dito. Pwedeng-pwede ka rin makigulo sa mga comments sa posts ko… and my other readers/blog friends 🙂

      Sick now,

  31. November 25, 2009 8:08 am

    Hi Winkie,
    Just stopping by to show some love.. I’ve read all your blog entries… Such a fan ba? Just admiring your wits and humor…


    Hi Nori,

    As in you read ALL??? Wow, it must have consumed your time so much. But hey, thanks! Hope you had fun reading them 🙂

    Thanks for peeking in. You are most welcome here. Bisitahin din kita 🙂


  32. February 4, 2010 7:43 am

    hi winkie! first time here. hope to visit you more often. looks like am going to enjoy visiting your site from time to time.

    thanks for having me. see you at my tambayan too! 😀

    Im a heating & air conditioning contractor, but that’s not why I logged on. seems I posted some photos on google earth, & I am looking for the exact location of a place I visited in Thailand. Its called Nanooch gardens, about 1/2 hr drive south of pattaya, towards Rayong.





    Hi Mike!

    Thanks for peeking in my site. I have been to Thailand just recently and yes, I went to Nong Nooch Garden. I can’t remember much the exact location of that place as we hired a taxi to take us there. I think it’s along Sukvimit Road in Pattaya (I dunno if I got the name right). It was 90 minutes from Bangkok. But it’s really worth the trip. My mom and I had a great time when we went there.

    I visited your site. Nice business you got there, eh? 🙂

  34. June 9, 2010 5:34 am

    It’s my first time to drop by here. You got a cool site.

    Keep posting!
