  • When I was little, I get too pumped for traveling.  We didn’t have the money to travel anywhere exotic or expensive.  Although it was mostly road trips to the beach, I get so giddy I couldn’t sleep the night before.  Can anyone else relate? 🤷🏽‍♀️ Now, years and many destinations visited later, I still get the same giddiness the night before an adventure - big or small!  I probably slept 4 hours last night, but hey, aren’t layovers meant for catching up on sleep?

  • I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be. | Peep my $12 Warriors shirt from the little boy’s section. My favorite section to shop in - what’s yours?

  • A year ago, I became a Canadian Citizen.

When we first arrived here in Canada, my mom would always tell us to keep our Permanent Resident cards with us at all times. Being newcomers, our family was in constant fear of being questioned, that we had to be ready in case we had to prove that we belong in this country.

I knew later on that no one has the right to question my status, but I carried this fear with me wherever I go, with whoever I meet. I internalized this fear thinking that whatever I do and whatever space I take, I will be questioned. I've had the constant worry of not being taken seriously in my profession, in doing the things I love, in becoming an entrepreneur.

Becoming a citizen somehow eases this fear. I remember feeling incredibly happy the first time I voted, thinking that I've contributed enough in this society to be able to have a voice, so perhaps I really DO belong here.

I continue to have my own anxieties and worries; but the encouragement I get from the wonderful people in my life and from people supporting my work really impact my sense of belonging. With people like you, I feel valued and safer in this space. 💛

P.S. If you haven't been, please check out a citizenship ceremony. It will be one of the most genuine, heart warming events you'll ever experience. ✨

From a nature organization society, @goharibon evolved into an organization dedicated to reversing the tide of environmental degradation happening in the Philippines.  Haribon is the country’s pioneer environmental organization. Founded in 1972, the organization, and the individuals it trained and nurtured were instrumental in the formation of other environmental organizations in the country, giving birth to the Philippine environmental movement as a whole.
In celebration of World Biodiversity Day, May 22, I support forest restoration activities in denuded forests around the country via a nation-wide movement called Forests for Life, which aims to restore our forests.  Adopt a Seedling donations not only provide for the cultivation and planting of each seedling, it also ensures its survival for the crucial first 3 years of growth with the help of People’s Organizations maintaining the tree planting sites.  Thank you Haribon Foundation for this opportunity to participate in your reforestation project especially my last  name means “of the forest”. #BringbackPHforests .

  • Good morning, folks! It’s Gemini season and to honor one of my favorite Gemini, my mama, i’m opening pre-orders for “Gemini Moon”. It’s in pre-production and will be available to be mailed out in approximately 2 weeks but I’ll be offering a preorder sale.

8x10- $18 ($25 plus shipping after sale)
4x6- magnetic print - $7 ($10 plus shipping after sale)
11x14- coming soon

Venmo, PayPal, Zelle Ana ca$h accepted. “Gemini Moon” is what sisterhood and collective healing looks like. On the the flipside, it also means to me what self love looks like.

  • I used to be so insecure with my own skin, but looking at it now, I am more than proud to flaunt it.

  • #ICYMI I wrote a post about the word I'm using to guide myself this year. (the link is in my bio, of course xx) But guess what? I'm about to double advertise for my blog posts because I actually just posted a super #vulnerable post about bullying and my thoughts of #cancelculture ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As 2019 approaches the halfway mark, I think of my guiding word, "create." I told myself I would create more, rather than staying in the background & just consuming content day after day. This is symbolic in my involvement on instagram more often, as well as my increased presence on my blog. Which leads to me to say...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
9th grade me would have been scared to put herself out there on the internet. To create and have my voice/opinions heard. It was a scary place back then. I was consistently cyberbullied & wondered when I would be able to go to school without having a water bottle thrown at me, people watching my every move, or people posting online fabricated stories about who I was (which was actually just who they "thought" I was). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wasn't the most mature back then, & I know I had problematic tendencies as an insecure girl. But I never wished for what happened to me to happen to anyone else, and I saw so much of what happened in the #jamescharles and #tatidrama similar to what I experienced back in high school. Which shows:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Drama should be contained in private & not publicized
- More good comes out of talking to understand, rather than talking to be "right" or "win an argument"
- People can change, and their past mistakes may not be excusable, but they can be forgivable. If you choose not to forgive, then that is on you and no one else. Do not bring more people in if they didn't need to be involved. - You can recover from reaching rock bottom. - Even if people hate you, there are people who know you for who you are. Ground yourself in their love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The world is already easily swayed by hatred -- what would happen if we allowed ourselves to be swayed by love & hope for change?

  • “Im telling you, she doesn’t belong. Not to one person, not to one place, not to one set of ideals. Her mind changed her heart, which changed her mind, and she was nothing, if not completely free. Maybe we’re just afraid of anyone who is constantly searching. And anything that didn’t clip her wings, or make her feel caged, was exactly where she meant to be. You’ve got to respect things that aren’t afraid of going off path. She would always be the type to lose herself, trying to find her own ways. I suppose the river doesn’t compete with the earth. It carves its own path anyway. It doesn’t brag, or boast, or beat its chest. It just flows. And the moon doesn’t try to outshine the stars. It just glows. The flowers, amidst the trees, that radiate and create life - even all that, only grows. She wasn’t free because she knew were she was going, she was free because she didn’t need to know.” -J. Raymond
