Grüezi! Bonjour! Hello! Kumusta!

You’ve landed on our Swiss-Filipino family blog. I am Rose, now a mother of three lively boys and residing in Switzerland. I’ve come a long way from being the school girl who grew up in an international school in Saudi Arabia, the college teen who studied medicine in the Philippines, and the tourist who unexpectedly met her future husband in a museum in Rome.


When I am not busy with regulatory documents, I am usually with our boys exploring our corner of Switzerland. When time allows, I enjoy writing and photography where words and images are not so regulated 😉. Here, I also share articles I write and submit to other sites.

Welcome to our version of the Swiss life!

Since moving here in 2008, we’ve been relocating every few years, discovering new regions and new dialects on the way. Though now in the French region, we do our best to keep our identities intact maintaining a multi-lingual home speaking Filipino, Swiss-German, and English while enjoying an outdoor lifestyle around our region.

And because of the circumstances that led us to this life, we are never really sure if we will stay in this country forever either, so While in Switzerland is dedicated to our time here, exploring the country and integrating into Swiss life while preserving our multi-cultural and multi-lingual family values.

Please feel free to look around, this site is a few years old but continues to grow albeit quite slowly. If you enjoy reading about our version of Swiss life and its peculiarities, you’re welcome to join the mailing list and follow us as we raise our children and grow this blog. Alternatively, you can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram. 😉
