The Last Piece

I'll start with why I loved you. You harbor constellations within your darkness. I saw them the moment we started talking and I never finished trying to connect one star to another while trying to figure you out. You are an ocean filled with sunken pirate ships and lost treasure chests. I have braved to… Continue reading The Last Piece

The Girl Who Broke His Heart

I ruined us. I ruined what little we have left after our fights. I'm sorry for holding the string too tight and breaking what fragile thread keeps us intact.

A Letter of an Insecure Girl

I look at the mirror and always hate what I see. I'm sorry I don't feel pretty. I don't think I deserve to allow myself to believe that I am beautiful—not with all these scars I carry. I am hideous. I am a distortion of physical flaws and mental instability. I look at other girls… Continue reading A Letter of an Insecure Girl


Lower Magat: a tour in the wild

They say that when you lose yourself, you try to find what's missing in the wild. Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park, Nueva Viscaya provides a variety of wildlife experience. With an entrance fee of just Php 50.00, I was in for an unexpected treat. When I crossed the gate, I was plunged into a dreamlike "into… Continue reading Lower Magat: a tour in the wild
