Ever wonder what your calling is? One evening I discovered mine, when I helped a beautiful stranger find her way to her destination--despite my trust issues.
What if things happened instantaneously? Let's say I wanted to make banana bread. What if, after preparing the correct measurements and portions of the ingredients and mixing it all up, the bread magically appeared before me? Or what if I arrived at a certain country, expecting to have a job, then after sending out resumes, … Continue reading Life Moves in Stages, so Don’t be in Such a Hurry!
As I write this, I am munching on my almost-midnight snack (appetizer for the actual midnight snack) and hearing only the clicking sound of my keyboard and the rumbling of the AC. I am all alone in our hotel room while my Mom is out partying with her friends. Yes, my Mom is partying. Not … Continue reading My Fruitful Jobless Season & the Fulfillment of my Introvert Dreams
In a short while, we will kiss 2015 goodbye and say hello to 2016. How does this make you feel? Are you overcome by excitement, paralyzed by uncertainty and fear, or discouraged by last year's performance? Personally, I feel all three. Somehow in my jungle heart, all three emotions found room.

I'm baaack, after a 5-month absence! In this post, I share my story of how and why my graduation delayed by a year, and why I'm really, really grateful for it. 🙂

Earlier this evening, I browsed through my Facebook news feed and saw the various activities of my friends in church and blockmates in school: attending & witnessing a prestigious awards ceremony in the media industry; going to the beach with friends; volunteering in the freshmen orientation; attending youth group (ELEVATE) meetings. After a few minutes … Continue reading Missing Out On Life?
Ever since I was a little girl, I've always dreamt of driving my own car, or just driving a car, really. It was so cool being behind the wheel (or the manibela in Filipino), steering it whichever way you wish. That dream of becoming a non-professional driver should have been fulfilled summer last year if … Continue reading I’ve Got The Drive!
Last Sunday (Easter Sunday) and today were amazing. God gave me the privilege of doing one of the things I love the most: hosting or emceeing. Last Saturday evening, I received a text message from my cousin, Miko, asking me if I can host an event on Easter Sunday, 4 pm. Immediately, I thought of … Continue reading The Host is Yet to Come
Exactly a week ago, April 9, I attended the concert of one of my most favorite Christian artists (and since that day, speakers): Jimmy Needham. If his name doesn't ring a bell, go to the end of this post and watch him sing my favorite song of his, "Forgiven and Loved." Seriously, stop. However, if you … Continue reading Jimmy Needham Concert & A Lesson on Appetite
