My Blogging Journey

I started blogging mid of May 2010. Scoop and Snap is not the original name of my blogsite. It was Charms Around. This blog became my baby for a year before I decided to buy my own domain. Later on , I venture on creating another 2 blogs of different niche. 

Why do I blog? Well, better to say my thoughts in writing than loose my sanity of doing nothing. Plus, what will I do with loads of photographs my husband and I have taken during our trips here and there? Better share them, right? 

Scoop and Snap is basically a travel and photography blog. The name of my blog says it all, "there's a scoop in every snap".  I try to the best of my ability to share the story behind every picture I shot. If words don't come out so easily, well, I will just let the picture do the talking. Just like my first blog post, Powerscourt Gardens

As I mentioned above, I registered two more domains to feature two different niche that I love 1] food (Luto Ni Nanay) and 2] health (Pinoy Pharmacists). The food blog is my kitchen adventure and love for food. While the health blog is sharing what I know on health and medicines as a Pharmacist as well as reconnecting to all Filipino Pharmacists worldwide. The positive feedbacks I received from my readers inspire me to keep going until now (even if I'm not very active recently). 

Advice to New Bloggers

Who said blogging is easy? No, it is not. But do not give up so fast. Your patience, courage and determination are needed to succeed.

The important thing is you know your goal and work on that goal. Post regularly and enjoy blogging as well as connecting to other bloggers. Many great things will follow afterwards.

Another Dream Come True

11:15 AM 0 Comments

 " A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep."  You bet it is but I'm glad mine came true just recently.

I'm a year older last month and I'm blessed to celebrate it somewhere else with my husband and my little girl. Yes, we spent days at Disneyland Anaheim and it was truly magical. Our little escapade started at our bedroom. Look at the picture below. The headboard says it all especially when you turn on the switch. When I saw it, I almost cry and sing with the lovely soft sound coming from it. 

Believe me, I have more pictures to share with you. But for now, let me leave you with this marvellous snap of our room for 9 days. 

Mesmerising View and Sound

Traveling constitutes the idea of seeing the other side of the world, enjoying it and making memories every single minute of it especially when you are sharing it with your love ones. 

Our recent trip was at Disneyland Park Anaheim, Los Angeles. We thought at first that it was not a good idea for our 32 months old girl. But everything turned to her way. Okay not all rides are for her but there are plenty of good ones that brought flawless smile and laughter in the air. The joy and the excitement grew with every ride and attraction. 


Thank you to the gift of technology to capture sceneries that I may not see again and sounds that I may not hear again. We were so delighted that we got every moment using our cameras. (Good thing selfies and groupies are not so awkward nowadays. 😉) And hey, Disneyland now have photographers posted in different beautiful spots to take picture of you and your family and friends. Those shots are uploaded directly to your online account by scanning your Disney Photo Card. It's free to view but can be printed for a good price.
