Story behind the blog
The name Finnoy originates from (Finnish-‘Filipino or Pinoy‘)].
During my younger years, I like to write my thoughts and anything that happened to me in a diary form but I do not want anyone see or read those, so I always get rid of my writings after a while. I like to write though I am not a writer. I thought of creating a blog about my life in Finland which I never did because of a busy schedule in school and work.
After becoming a mother, I become passionate about photography. As a mother, time flies unnoticeably fast and my writing hobby get less and less but I make sure to capture every moment with my camera or phone.
Then we became a family of six. During my maternity leave for my youngest, I thought of pursuing my blog which I planned many years back. Having to go through the same stages of children for the fourth time, I thought why not I write about my experiences to help new moms.
We love to explore and travel around Finland too and we started going international now that youngest is getting bigger. Travelling with small children is always a challenge depending on their age and interests. I want to help families with small kids to know Finland destinations in English. Our interests in cooking also include the idea of writing about our multicultural cuisine which can be prepared in a short time.
There is also Tagalog blogs for my kababayan moms who prefer to read in Tagalog.
So this blog is made for you! Yes, for you my dear reader!
