Welcome to my blog. My name is Blessie Adlaon. I am a Filipino work-at-home mom.

I used to hold a full-time job, first as a public school teacher, then as a writer/editor of English teaching materials.

In 2010, I took a homebased writing job because I felt I needed to be at home to properly raise my headstrong daughter. Yes, we had a yaya, but she could only keep my child alive and healthy. Discipline was a little beyond her pay grade.

Today, I am a work-at-home mom. (That's the one-sentence summary. Click here for the full story.) I am also my children's homeschool teacher.


I started this blog because I got tired of reading articles that required me to buy materials only found abroad, or gave leads to jobs that only accepted North Americans.

This blog talks about Philippine concerns and Philippine opportunities. My promise: You will never need a U.S. address, a dollar account, or relatives abroad to use the information you find here.
