Disappointed, frustrated, a little angry, but not really surprised. Through the years, I’ve stopped pinning my hopes or love for country on the elections. My job requires me to work with the government in the local and national levels, so I’ve learned to play with the...

Over the weekend, MUNI invited me to speak in a panel entitled Sustainability + Social Media to discuss ~conscious communication. The guide questions prompted me to think about where I was when I began using social media and where I am now. Wuw, bigla akong napa-soul s...

Gia's Despedida de Soltera

Mess Hall, Makati

Gia and I are first cousins, born 10 months apart. Since I'm a bit older, I took it as my responsibility to be the older sister she never had. To say Gia and I are close would be an understatement.

Having grown up with Gia, I c...

Every year, my friends and I choose a theme to guide the coming year. 2018 for me was grow. I knew I was moving out of my parents' house and I would have an opportunity to work abroad for the first time, so it seemed appropriate.

I was scared to work in the Pacific Isla...

I started listening to podcasts because Metro Manila traffic was driving me crazy. I usually listen to music or sing songs from Disney movies/Broadway musicals in the car (the only time I flex my vocal cords nowadays), but the hours and hours spent in a vehicle was mak...

In 2017 and 2018, I committed to read more books. I read a lot for work - policies, articles, reports, references - but I always crave non-required reading, which usually means a non-fiction novel. I'm so proud to say I have been succeeding! 

I've be...

Early this year, I had the birthday blues for the first time. I was about to turn 30, and I was reflecting on, you know, life and what I’ve done and what I haven’t. I thought about other people born in 1988, like Adele and Rihanna, and felt like a such an underachiever...

I come from a family of women with perfect skin: low-maintenance, blemish-free, invisible pores, smooth, and soft. My maternal grandmother’s skincare regimen is anchored on her fear of the sun — she never engaged in outdoor activities, and to this day, needs an umbrell...
