HELLO AND WELCOME! My name is Kim. I am a firefighter’s wife and a mompreneur 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.


I am married to Arjay, a firefighter and my and the minis’ hero. We tied the knot in May 2011 at 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 stories on this blog, I spend my time working with women entrepreneurs and bloggers from all over the world through Mom On Duty Virtual Assistant Services.

Travel – Two things I absolutely enjoy are good food and traveling. Read about our family food trips and travels under this category.
