Back to Square One…

I have had this blog for over a year now and have barely updated it. Law school takes over my entire life and so for every month I lapse on posting, it is one month of regressing back to square one of making it a point to write something away from the law school hustle. And so, here I am back at it because my focus has been all over the place these past months and writing has always been one of those things I have a firm (at least, a little firmer) grip on compared to the rest of […]

Counting The Days

I started counting when there were 27 days left. 20 more days 16 14 12 12 more days until I can wake up and afford an hour more of sleep. 12 more days until I can fix my room as pristine as I like it. 12 more days until I can follow a religious work out schedule without my body screaming let me rest!!! 12 more days until I can cook food I want to cook and not have to be subjected to incessant fast food escapes. 12 more days until I can flip pages of non-law books without guilt. 12 […]

First Letter to the President.

Sir, your presidency welcomed a shift in the usual trend of Philippine politics, of Philippine policies. I feared the worst. I feared an era of isolation from the rest of the world, I feared that the laws I am studying would drastically change into a different system, I feared that more lives will be lost than be saved. But in the middle of those fears lies a promise you uttered from your presidential campaign- that you would wage a war against drugs and eradicate the same from Philippine society. In the middle of my apprehensions about you, I gave you […]

HPAIRxHong Kong 2016

Disclaimer: Everything there is to know about the formalities (applications, panels, fees, etc.) of the conference can be found on their website. This is more of a look back on my HPAIR journey. I have always heard about HPAIR in social media sites, college corridors, seminars and opportunity posts but for some reason the timing to apply never seemed right. The Harvard Project for Asia and International Relation in Hong Kong 2016, however, came at the perfect time and place. It was right before law classes start and near enough for the plane fare not to be sky high expensive. Growing up, when […]

On Bravery

To a 6 year old, a television filled with hijab wearing girls, gun slinging boys and prisoners of war constantly brought confusion as to what is going on away from the confines of southern Luzon, specifically in Mindanao, a far region from where I stay in the Philippines. I saw it as a horror story, as a nightmare, as a long cramped ride, a dark room- where all I wished for from the moment I learned about it was for it to end, to fast forward to closing credits, to wake up, to reach my destination, for the lights to […]

We Said Go Travel: Be Part of the Global Travel Writing Community

I first chanced upon the website We Said Go Travel when my mom told me about a writing contest wherein “Bravery” was the topic. When I was browsing through the site, l found it interesting that such a travel contest/blog/website would delve into deeper elements of seeing the world in addition, and moreso, to the beauty that earth has in store. It highlighted, amongst many, the human experience, the stories behind a foreign face, dialogues with shared languages, and connections of different colours. The caches of memories and thoughts present in the global community that is We Said Go Travel […]

Kay Ganda ng Pilipinas

This is a year over due from my trip up North with a couple of friends. As it was my first out of town trip with sight seeing for the main purpose (not training, competition, team building, conference or what-have-you), I was thrilled to be a full time tourist in my own country. I feel proud to have shown what lies in the North to one of my foreign friends, but I am even prouder that I have finally ticked off several regional landmarks out of my list of places to go to here in the Philippines. Kay Ganda ng […]

23:59

Literally ending the 1st of July with our first post. Caches would be a stash of thoughts, travels, moments of 20-something sisters as we go about living our lives. It is promised to be updated as getting a webspace set up is not exactly the least expensive purchase. Certainly is not the easiest to set up either. But more importantly it is promised to be updated because it will store memories and ideas, maybe share them with others. It has yet to have an identity of its own but it is dreamt to be one that entertains and inspires at […]

Christmas Eve Musings

The pandemonium of feelings that I am supposed to have right now is all bottled up so tightly deep, deep, down there that I think there must be something seriously wrong with how I process feelings. I should be apprehensive of the future, sad because of failed expectations… scared. doubtful. agitated. Name it. but if there is anything that repression leaves, it would be the searing numbness. I do not exactly know how to describe it but it is there. If there is anything that holidays 2014 gave me, it would be letting go of things, feelings and yes, people, […]
