Men, You Are God’s Gift to Women.
Disclaimer: I wrote this as a creative challenge to myself more than anything. (Putting that disclaimer up for my dad more than anything 😂). Isa, dalawa, tatlo, apat, lima Binibilang ang araw hanggang tayo’y muling magkita Isa, dalawa, tatlo, apat, lima Binibilang ang beses na sinabi sa puso, tama na Isa Alam mo bang ako’y […]
You Deserve More Than Secondhand Love
I’m not talking about the guy who arrogantly flaunts and flirts and personally tags himself as God’s gift to women. (Hi. If that’s you, I’m telling you straight up: you’re probably not, actually. Sorry). I’m talking about you who care so much about Biblical manhood that you’d invest time and money into learning how you can […]
To be honest, from the moment this blog blew up back in 2015, this has been one of the things I have always wanted to say. This was something I constantly expressed to my friends, but somehow had a difficult time putting it into words considering how ironic it would be to come from someone […]
Dear Future Daughter: “Am I Pretty?”
"It's okay. Break. It's okay to break. It's okay to be broken." How many times do we have to tell ourselves that our brokenness is forgivable? This, this is one of the greatest things He has taught me. That we can be undone, and it's completely okay. Some pain could be self-inflicted. Some pain could […]
Dear Ladies: Guard His Heart
I can already picture it. You at 3, in your favorite white dress all sparkly and poofy, coming up to me with eyes wide open with curiosity. A flick of hair here, a twirl there, and your heart begging to be delighted in. "Mommy, mommy, am I pretty?" I'm going to look you straight in […]

Bro, Don’t Me.
Just a little confession: I am in no way an expert at this. I have loved and I have lost and I have spent months and years in an emotional limbo, hopelessly stuck in a place I don't even think I want to move on from because it's the only place I can still find […]
This Is Who You Are
Based on a thousand true stories of malilinaw na malabong usapan, though not one of them mine. Rather, these are the collective thoughts of males and females alike who are close to me and have been in such circumstances before. Let’s make it clear before this gets too far. Like a puppet-master with a string, […]
Dear Student: What To Do When You Like Someone
Take a long look in the mirror right now and tell me what you see. Hips too thin, waist too fat, arms too flabby. Look closer. Tell me what you see. Eyes too far apart, nose too flat, acne scars too deep. Closer. Look deeper. Don’t you see what I see? There, right there, swimming […]
Speaking from years of trial and error.
