Hello there! My name is Karina (Kaye for short), and I’m a WAHM (work at home mom) and a Bulacan blogger. Born, raised and lived most of my life in Bulacan, I am a Bulakenya through and through. I’m a 30-something quintessential tita, and I often describe myself with these eight words: pseudo-geek introvert with a dash of awkward.

fam facts

I have a daughter (Svetlana), who is the reason why I am a WAHM today. I live with my best friend, personal chef, chauffeur and partner in crime life Paulie, who is a graphic artist and the person I usually blame for my muffin top. We have a Bichon Frise (Niall) and three rescue cats (Luffy, Nami & Robin), making for one chaotic household. I am ate to three sisters, tita to two nephews and one niece.

Designing WordPress websites is our bread and butter. Paulie is the creative brains behind the operation, while I take care of the technical side of things. We’re super thankful we can do it all from the comfort of our own home since 2008. We own Squeesome Design Studio, where all our services and portfolio live together. We can’t wait to see you there soon so we can work on a web project together!


I’ve been blogging since 2008 under the name WAHMaholic. I decided to focus on promoting my beloved hometown of Bulacan in 2019, with the main goal of sharing Bulacan-centered information and helping local business startups gain more exposure. Thus my rebranding to La Bulakenya.

A few of my  favorite things:
