About Me / Contact

My name is Alice. I also go by the name Isis, which is my nickname, but I prefer to be called Isis since it sounds friendlier to me. I am a 29-year old stay-at-home mom based in San Jose, CA and I used to work as a Trainer for Customer Service and Language.

I was forced to get out of the labor force when I was 2 months pregnant because of some complications that made it difficult for me to focus on my tasks. My son was born via emergency c-section a few weeks earlier than expected because of pre-eclampsia. I had 2 seizures that day and my blood pressure shot up to 200+. I thought I was going to die then. And I was ready. I remember saying a prayer while everyone was panicking at the hospital. I told God that if my last purpose in life was to give birth to my son, I’m okay with it. I just prayed that He take care of and guide my husband as he raises our son and that He give comfort to my mom who’s on the other side of the planet.

But, yes, I’m still alive. And my son is now a very active 18-month old boy.

Aside from blogging, most of my time is spent taking care of my son and a friend’s son. I also lead worship at our church so my Saturdays and Sundays are devoted to worship rehearsals, fellowships and services. That’s the reason why I rarely blog on weekends.

I started this blog as a coupon/deals site but it has since evolved into an all-purpose type of blog where I share my thoughts on products, offer free stuff, announce deals, write about my family and blogging per se, and tell people about what’s up in the Bay Area.
