Hey there! I'm Cristina
Born and bred Filipino turned Canadian, I am a mom of three wonderful children and a proud superwoman-wannabe.
I initially created this space to become my channel in sharing my personal experience as a Canadian immigrant, as this blog continue to grow with me, I’ve decided to make this space to be more versatile. As you read this now, I don’t just share my journey as an immigrant but as a financial advisor and mortgage professional, I want to help families to capture opportunities and build resilience by providing access to useful financial information through this blog. It is also my intention to use this space to share my parenting experiences and the wisdom and life lessons that I acquired and will acquire as I face my midlife.
All these and everything in between in one cup.
I am delighted to see you here, welcome to my “Cup of Tyh.”

do something worth writing."

Momsie's Journey to Bringing a Welcome to Remember to New Immigrants
It was December of 2015 when I first came across Welcome Pack Canada, I decided to post a story about this because I thought it is something interesting for new immigrants. This article became one of my most popular posts until I had a chance to collaborate with the people behind these boxes – – – this is where www.momsiecle.com introduced this newcomer’s kit to Winnipeg new immigrants.
I can still recall how I just reach out to my friends to help me with the distribution as I need help in bringing 30 of the 20 lbs. cases (150 gift boxes) to the distribution area. The first distribution was held at Bakerite, being newly-arrived immigrants themselves, the owners of Bakerite, Manny and Emily Adao instantly said yes when I approached them if I could use their place as the venue for the distribution. The supposedly 2 days distribution was cut short to a 6-hour distribution because all boxes were claimed. And from then on, we distributed the box almost every month and each month, we would distribute 300 to 400 boxes to newcomers in Winnipeg.
