About Me


I am Filipino by birth, Chinese by heritage.

I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines.

I am an avid reader and a creative writer. (At least my bachelor's degree says so!)

I am a baker and a cook and a lover of things tasty and edible.

I am a reconnected blogger. I was a consistent blogger in my college years (year 2003-2010) but slowly dropped off when I started my first job in the corporate world.

I believe that beauty isn't defined by size, that brain capacity and richness of character cannot be measured by a scale, that being fat doesn't equate to being lazy, that changing the way you see yourself will make you feel better than undergoing a hundred makeovers, that a kind word and sincere gesture is remembered for years and that knowing your worth will save you from unnecessary heartaches.

I am a belated bloomer. But it's better late than never!
