But I’m a Cheerleader

I’m not a dark person. In fact, I’m pretty preppy. I mean, what could be more preppy than being cheer captain and prom queen? I have a perfect life in my perfect house, with my perfect parents. I’m not dark at all. I’m happy, always have, always will be. I don’t like feeling sad. I have a perfect life! I didn’t have a bad childhood, in fact, I had one of the best—ones with summers spent in our summerhouse at The Hamptons. My childhood was very picturesque. I’ve had all I could ever need, and all that I have ever wanted. Continue reading


Love is patient. Love is kind.

It is our humanity that makes us human beings, when we lose that, we are no better than animals. I have tried to remain silent, to let the issue pass, to sit in my own bubble and stew in my opinions, but it’s just not me. I was taught to stand up for what is right, therefore, I will.

Mona Lisa’s Smirk

I can see that the world they live in is very different from mine. It is a world where women weren’t allowed to be their own person. They can study, yes, they can hold degrees and doctorates, but it was all empty titles. The most important thing was still to find a man, settle down, pop out a few children, clean the house, do the laundry, cook for the family, and be an obedient wife-always waiting, hand and foot, on your man.

Behind Every Great Man…

Behind every man that has ever been born, every soldier, politician, king, or president, is a woman, more importantly, a mother. To say that being a mother is the hardest job in … Continue reading


We’ve heard that saying before, “Timing is everything.” But it is most often said in the context of romance. We think this only applies in that certain area of life, but dears, timing IS everything IN everything, even the small things. Continue reading

The Filipino Spirit

I was given a chance, not many are given, to experience, side-by-side, two completely different cultures. Continue reading

Losing Lola (Grandmother)

It is said that in this world we do only 2 things completely alone: (1) we are born, naked out of our mother’s womb, crying; and (2) we die, alone. But I don’t think that we truly do anything alone, there are always people out there, ready to welcome us, to send us off, to … Continue reading

***Disclaimer: Spoilers for How I Met Your Mother Finale below. Proceed at your own risk.***   I have an addictive personality. When I love something, I have no problem overindulging myself. So when I first laid my eyes upon How I Met Your Mother albeit it be through commercials via Star World and small clips … Continue reading

Dear Mr. Self-Righteous

I haven’t written anything for well over five months now but the devastation that has fallen on my country is too much to bear for me to remain silent. It breaks my heart. It changes perspective. And it shifts paradigms. Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) has left thousands of deaths in its trail. It … Continue reading
