I want to remember all the moments. My work life is well documented on my instagram account, so for a change, here’s a little journal of my offline life this 2018, with the people I love the most. ?
The year’s mantras.
Peej and I watched Cynthia Alexander concert at the Music Museum, Passion Pit in SF.
I learned that intimate concerts are my kind of thing.
I was invited back to Poveda for a talk about my watercolor life + Spent a weekend in Fuego with my Poveda barkada
I learned that some things don’t change, and that some friendships are 5ever!
Took a quick break to La Union with Mikko & Macy + Yoga in the village
I learned that little breaks make for a sustainable work life.

I learned that I DON’T want to be a botanical watercolor artist. ?

I learned how to make ink from plants, and I learned how much I am loved by my family and
I learned (again) how beautiful the Philippines is, and how each of us needs to do something to make it better.

Grateful to everyone who was a part of my 2018!:)
