About Me

I Love NY

“Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.”

I’m Filipina. I moved to New York city in 2005, and have been living here since then, except for a brief time in Connecticut in 2013. I don’t always love NY, but I try my best to, and this blog is an attempt to keep that love alive.

“In Real Life” I’m a web developer. Aside from traveling, taking photos, and eating (which are all very evident on this blog), I also love cooking, baking, watching TV (mostly sitcoms, animes, k-dramas, and anything Aaron Sorkin created), playing video games, reading books (I’ll read most things, but I love fantasy especially), and hiking.

This is my cat.

She was found in the Hamptons. Therefore she’s fancy.

This is my dog.

He’s a ball of cuteness.

I love baking and photography.

Which is why this is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.

I love planning walks.

And Central Park is one of my favorite places to do it.



I love K-dramas.

And I fly my k-drama freak flag high.

I love animes. And cakes.

Ouran Host Club’s Honey senpai is the embodiment of both.
