Sharing lives with Filipina Home-based Moms
By : Omni A. Larrosa
A lot of you know me as a passionate working mom. However, I am also very open about how I dream of working in my own home office someday where I can just peak from the door and see what my kids are doing from time to time. Bryce and I strongly believe that someday, we can just enjoy the company of our kids and travel the world without worrying about everyday expenses. So while waiting for that to happen, we try to immerse ourselves to communities who inspire people that working from home is indeed possible and even go out of their ways to share best practices to those who are already working from home, or planning to do so – like FILIPINA HOME-BASED MOMS (FHMoms)
Recently, I got invited by my friend Ruth Ramos to join FHMoms, a group of moms who do several types of home-based jobs. I got inspired with the way Maria Korina Cope-Bertulfo, or simply Mommy MK, the founder of the group, shares techniques on how one can be a happy and effective WAHM.

She is so generous to share legit home-based job sites with available job openings, tips on how one can get hired for several types of jobs and even how one can negotiate for a good salary. I haven’t seen any other group like it. There is a genuine interest in uplifting people who get connected with the group.
So when I got invited to the first meet-up, I responded very positively by confirming my attendance. For me, it is a privilege to meet and learn from such passionate moms within the group. And when I finally got to meet them last May 12 at Mom and Tina’s Pasig, I realized, it was a good decision to join the event. Below are some of the highlights and also my favorite parts of the meet-up:

But of course, nothing beats meeting new people, like Mommy Tin in the photo below.

We also learned new mom hacks from the speakers they invite to share insights. One talk that really got my attention is “Making Healthy Meals for Babies” as shared by Mommy Bem.

Thanks to the generosity of Pampers Baby Dry Team for making this event possible. I am a happy user of their product and I sincerely recommend fellow moms to #ChoosePampers.
