Oodles of Goodles (
Oodles of Goodles is the eclectic blog of Glenda, a self-proclaimed jill-of-all trades. She was once a corporate rat who decided enough is enough and proceeded to spend her time with people and things she cares about most. And to save the world, one blog at a time. She has never looked back since.

Buhay Bahay-Bahayan (
An online journal of a husband and wife team going through the roller coaster ride of playing real-life playhouse (bahay-bahayan). Rico is the husband, and Riza is the wife. Read on as Rico narrates his thoughts, dreams, interests, and opinions.

viva la vie boheme (
Gail. Twenty four. Has a love-hate relationship with the world. Bohemian. Writer. A philomath. I express myself better in written words and photos. I like taking out lines from lyrics, movies, and good books. I like getting lost in another world through reading, listening to music, and writing.
