the doors of islington

Living near two of the busiest London boroughs can be noisy and disruptive, but we find it endlessly stimulating! Just going about our daily routine we find small surprises, like this Invader artwork outside a busy fast food joint...

Glittery rainbow tiles - maybe Invader was celebrating Pride!

to our well being & health care

wonder | wander | women are great advocates of natural balance and holistic practice.

You can say we arrived at such a state in an unnatural way. Being Filipino from the Visayan province of Negros where sugar has been grown for centuries to supply national consumption and world trade.

Our Ilonggo Desserts

Negros Occidental - our side of the island - has mastered the art of burnt sugar delicacies. We take grand pride and are world-renowned and multi-awarded for them.

Eating with friends: a birthday celebration!

Every birthday marks a new year, so why not treat it like a true New Year's celebration? Some years it's good to spend the day alone in contemplation. Some years we might throw a huge party, or have family dinner on top of the world. This year I wanted some quiet time, but also a touch of sparkle, and the company of a dear friend.

journal adventures

There's a secret side to all the adventures we have as wonder | wander | women. We love to share our pictures and mementoes of the places we've travelled as well as records of changing seasons in our neighbourhoods. At the same time we kept a more personal record - our journals.
