Hi there! My name is Cristina!
My friends call me Tina or Tin but people close to me call me “Tyh” (and that will always be my favorite!) I am a mom of three wonderful children, I help Canadian families with their financial planning and guide them in their home ownership journey as a licensed Financial Advisor and Mortgage Professional.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and decided to move to Canada with my family more than 10 years ago.
I love documenting my life by writing in my journal and taking photos or videos. Yes, I always love “Show & Tell” (that activity in school where you get to bring your favorite things and show it to your classmates and talk about it) so I guess that explains why I have this little corner in the internet world.
One day it felt that my ramblings cannot fit in the small space in my brain and I thought that a blog is the best place to let it all out. I made a personal blog in WordPress until I decided to take my ramblings into a notch higher – I took the chance and officially came up with “Momsie’s Circle”.
As you are reading this now, my blog name has changed, I want my space to be more versatile where I will not just share my journey as an immigrant but as someone who is in the financial field, I want to help families especially women to capture opportunities and build resilience by providing access to useful financial information in my blog. Lastly, I want this space to become my channel in sharing my personal experience and life lessons as I face my midlife. All these and anything in between in one cup, hence, I decided to give this little space of mine a new name – my “Cup of Tyh” was born.
So, let me welcome you to my new space and I hope you enjoy your stay..
