Philippines, my home.

PLACES LIVED

  • Manila (1989-1994, 2010-2011, 2014-present) My Parents have been living in Manila since they were teenagers, finished school, started working and finally met each other through my Mom’s bestfriend who was related to my Dad. This is where I was made.
Manila North Harbour

  • Davao (1994-1999) My Dad brought our family when he was assigned in Davao as a Regional Director in one of the government agencies. Davao gave me a lot of sweet childhood memories

  • Ormoc, Merida and Isabel, Leyte  (1997-2002) Both of my parents’ roots are from Leyte. When my Dad was about to retire, my parents decided that we would start moving to Ormoc to get ready for his retirement within the next 2 years where I finished my primary school.
My childhood in Merida, Leyte means living right by the beach.

  • Cagayan de Oro (2011) – Though I have only lived in this place for a couple of months, it’s still a very special one because this is where I gave birth to my beautiful son. However, we had to move back to Cebu a day after typhoon Sendong hit the province.
