    Meet You in Singapore | 2023

    (Here I am again, writing something months later from when this actually happened, sorry.) If you have been following me for quite some time, you might well know that me and my friends have this annual thing every Valentine’s season.

    38th | And my August Pt. 1

    Here we are again, late in posting as usual. I have to get back to my habit of writing for sure. This year’s August was memorable. Marks the first time I get away since being locked down by a global pandemic (that just had to happen in my lifetime!) almost 3 years ago. But first,…

    The Kids are Out | Holy Week 2022

    Writing this in the rainy season to maybe remind me, us, some remnants of summer. First proper vacay out of town for the kids, finally out after 2 years! Now off to Boracay Island! Road trip took maybe 4 hours if we haven’t stopped by some Mcdonald’s and Jollibee to eat. Aftermath of the typhoon…

  • Grey and Yellow

    Grey and Yellow

    2020 was life-changing, it was exceptionally challenging that I canโ€™t even put in a good word. It was unremarkably heavy, a burdened weight unnecessarily shouldered for the past 10 months. Suddenly, everyone had to forego with comfortable, we did not have a choice and that was frustrating. Life had to hide behind the mask. Loss…

    35th | Bag Raid

    As I’ve said, I stopped celebrating my birthdays when I turned 20. And ever since family and friends would throw me surprise parties where, for the most of it, I would come under-dressed or unprepared, obviously. I am not really big on surprises but I’ve always appreciated their efforts, even when it’s also finding a…

    35th | Middle Earth

    Photo set | Northern Island, New Zealand I stopped celebrating my birthdays when I turned 20 for silly reasons most people wouldn’t really understand. Not that interesting so don’t be curious.

    Annual chaos with my forever dates — part 2. Was supposed to be a week-long vacay in Sydney but this momma had well, responsibilities so I caught a later flight in the week and actually just stayed for 4 days. Too short! And the hell I had to go through before getting on that SYD…
