Cosmos

Not sure what this is, but I was reminded that in the drought, in the dryness, something beautiful and healthy could still grow. Just like cosmos flowers that might show its full bloom during fall (yes, fall), it takes “fall” season for some to come to full bloom too. You might also be that cosmos […]

When a chapter ends

A season that lasted for quite some time has finally come to its end. Yes, an end when everything seems to be crumbling right before our eyes — plans, timelines, bucket lists. Yet endings are also beautiful. It makes you anticipate what comes next after you take those brave steps towards another door. Another chapter. […]

Me, too

Hi reader, I have something intimate to share to you today. At least, I’ll share to the best extent that I can.

Doon sa hindi nauubos

New normal. Kasama na sa “new normal” ko simula nung lumipat kami dito sa probinsya ang pag-iigib ng tubig sa gabi.

Why don’t you ask?

Hello Love, I’ll Wait

Stronger is the love that waits until love finds its way back. This is what I thought as the scene zooms out of Ethan and Joy and into the airport, the sky, and the different people you meet anywhere you are. They are two different people with two different family backgrounds, two different sets of […]

Broken to beautiful

Recently I attended a singles’ talk in church where the speaker mentioned about a Japanese art called Kintsugi. Kintsugi is an ancient Japanese form of art wherein gold is used to fix broken pottery. With gold added, the finished product then becomes more expensive than when it was still in its previous form. What is […]
