Nadine In a Nutshell
Hi! I’m Nadine Smith, a lifestyle and personal blogger from Manila, Philippines. I’m a 35-year old lady who’s not really 35. I’m only 8 years old as of this writing (I was born on a leap year, February 29, which only comes once every 4 years). A friend once said that my extraordinary birthday is a metaphor for my fun, crazy, unique, and quirky personality. I tried to check this site to see if her statement was on the money, but to my dismay, February 29 isn’t even listed! Even Facebook believes February 29 is an imaginary date (my birthday alert is always set to March 1). I guess this means I’ll be forever young. Fine with me!
Basically, I look like a woman, I sometimes act like a boy, I play like a child, I work like a dog, I eat like a horse, and I laugh like a hyena. There. I hope that was informative enough.
I am a happy wife to Mike Smith or Miguel Lazatin. No, I don’t have two lovers. Long story, but anyway, Mike and Miguel are the same person, even if airport Immigration Officers don’t believe him when they check his two passports. For the curious: he’s part-Filipino and part-Spanish but is an Australian citizen (he lived there for most of his life before moving to Manila). Oh, and he doesn’t speak or understand Tagalog, except for some basic words and phrases like “oo,” “hindi,” “ayoko,” “ano ba yan!” and “charot.”
I am also blessed to be the mommy of my adorable, smart, funny, sweet, and sometimes bratty and naughty toddler, Andromeda Eve (“Andi” for short). She’s our Little Star! I could go on and on about her, but if you want to know more about her, you may check out the hashtag #AndromedaEveSmith or her IG account, @andromedaevesmith.
- I pay the bills by being a freelance event host and have hosted hundreds of events such as weddings, kiddie parties, debuts, corporate events, and more.
- I work as a voice talent for TVCs, digital ads, radio commercials, and so on.
- I am occasionally a singer. I used to be a lounge singer for hotels, a pop and acoustic singer in bars, and an entertainer at the Venetian Macau (would you believe I was a gondolier?!).
- I am a blogger and vlogger. You probably know that by now if you’re here in this site.
- Lastly, I’m a freelance writer.
Obviously, I can’t sit still doing just one thing. Yep… I wasn’t kidding about the “working like a dog” bit.
Want to talk? Got a question for me? I would be happy to hear from you! You may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I try to respond to all e-mails as much as possible (unless you’re really creepy).
For inquiries about my wedding & events hosting (and/or singing), you may also get in touch with me through my event hosting page. I’d love to make your event more fun!
