I am Kernan’s devoted wife and Jamaine and Kalia’s loving mom. Apart from these two most important roles in my life, I am also a writer at heart.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and I’m proud to be a Filipina.
I’ve lived in Manila all my life but I dream about having a house by the beach so that I could witness the sunrise everyday.
I’m a Catholic Schoolgirl: from my elementary days in St. Paul to highschool in Immaculate Heart of Mary College and finally to my college days in University of Santo Tomas (UST).
Since I graduated, I’ve been working in one of the biggest TV networks in the Philippines. Now I’m working with fantastic people in a lovely children’s show because I love kids and happy stories.
Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like had I chosen to be a writer. So for now, I release all my writing attempts through blogging.
The things I love, like and enjoy
Aside from writing, I love to read books on self-development, inspiration and recently, personal finance. I’ve adopted a new mission to read at least two books a month and build my own personal development library.
Most people who know me will attest to my undying love for all things pink. If the color red is said to the be color that immediately catches the human eye, for me it’s pink. My hubby would know when my pink alert is on. I even had a phase in my life when almost everything I wore and owned was color pink. Now I just try to wear and use things with a hint of pink to avoid looking like a walking candy.
I love chocolate. I crave for chocolate everyday. Sometimes, I can eat a chocolate cake with iced or hot chocolate. Chocolate can be my appetizer, main course and dessert. Of course, that was during the days when I can eat anything I want and not gain a pound. Now I try to stick to dark chocolate. Once I get back my pre-partum shape, I’d go for that chocolate buffet any day.
I like shopping but I’m not brand conscious. I believe that you can wear a shirt from Divi or Mango and still look chic as long as you’ve got great taste and a healthy dose of self-confidence. I admire anyone who can endure shopping with me, because I’m the type who scours the whole mall and canvasses prices before I buy. But more than the tag, the quality and fit will always be a priority.
I love traveling. I get excited by breathtaking sights and nature trips. It always amazes me how wonderful this world is and how fortunate we are to be living in it. One day, I aim to travel with my hubby and my baby girl around and explore all the best beaches in the Philippines. And then we’ll take on the world!
I enjoy getting active and striving to be healthy. I’ve tried boxing, bellydancing, Pilates and Yoga. I’ve tried going to the gym, but it bores me to pieces. I have yet to find a physical activity that I can devote myself to other than you know what.
Goals and missions
My greatest goals in life are to be the sexiest Filipina wife, the greatest mother and the best writer.
Actually, I just want to be the best me.
But more than that, my lifetime mission is to live to love, inspire and make a difference.
