HELLO AND WELCOME! My name is Kim. I am a firefighter’s wife and a mom-boss based in the Philippines. Mom On Duty is a family and lifestyle blog where I share stories and lessons on nurturing a happy marriage, positive and active parenting, and managing an online business from home (and anywhere!). I also write about family-friendly destinations, restaurants we love, products and services we recommend, as well as events that the whole family will enjoy.




Arjay and I tied the knot in May 2011 in a civil wedding and renewed our vows before the Lord in a Paris-themed Church wedding two years later. It was a bumpy ride to I do, but we made it through as stronger individuals and an even stronger team.

We have three minis: Kelly, Caleb, and Charlie. They are three adorable and smart little ones that have never-ending what’s, how’s, and why’s about anything under the sun, moon, and stars! Their curiosity can sometimes be exhausting, but it is something we encourage since we believe in learning through exploratory, creative, and independent play.

Aside from raising little humans and sharing our stories through this blog, I work closely with women entrepreneurs to help them grow their business. I offer Virtual Assistant and Online Business Management services specifically to women in business because I understand very well how difficult it can be to juggle so many glass balls. Through my business support services, I give clients the time freedom they need so they can do more with their time.
