A few weeks ago, I decided to retire Filipina Explorer. It would've been 13 years in February.   It was a name that I stuck with because in the beginning, there was much unselfing and relationship dependence I haven’t unlearned yet - an aimlessness that extended to my identity. So, when someone suggested the name, "because you are a Filipina and you like exploring", I simply said, "Yeah, maybe I should.”    My writing largely hinged on movement. I struggled when I wasn’t “out there” not only because my job depended on it, but because my spirit needed the bustle of new experie ..read more

The real root of why foreigners always find opportunities to exploit our weaknesses is our misplaced sense of identity. We, Filipinos, think so small of ourselves and consider the white man's opinion superior. Mind-boggling when you realize that we have everything we need here to feel worthy. More than 7,600 drool-worthy islands. Kayumanggi skin that is coveted by Westerners. A long line of bold and mighty warriors - princesses some of them. An intelligible pre-colonial writing system. Over a hundred ethnic groups, each with their unique traditions. Beautiful native languages and dialects ..read more

For many would-be yacht owners, like the ones already deep into the hobby of boating, the dream is to order a brand-new yacht from a fine boatbuilder.

These days it's easy to get discouraged to look forward to anything. "You know you are okay, but there's that sadness that comes and goes. You wonder what you're living for," a friend recently shared. I feel it too. That sadness, fragile, like a scab constantly aching to be scratched and bled.
