From the bottom of the deepest chambers of my heart, thank you so much to those who availed Bittersweet during its PRE-ORDER period! I hope that you’ll find your own story through the pages of prose and poetry that I put together. I poured my heart and soul into it. Hope you enjoy! 🍰🍭🍨
Trivia Time 🍰🍭🍨
BITTERSWEET’S BOOK COVER was done by the fabulously talented, Kaed Paras.
After trying different color palettes to my liking, we finally ended up with the light blue and slightly greenish colors and incorporated light pink as well for the font.
We decided that the theme will be minimalist and will show something like a tea party as I wanted to convey how you can get the best out of this collection by reading it while sipping tea or anything warm ☕️ The combination of the two will spoil your heart 💙
It was also my Momma’s wish to put a cake on it hahaha! And since I love her so much, I agreed! She even instructed me of details like it should be just a slice and she’s also the one who suggested to put those things in the table as well as the fabulous chair.
Momma and especially Kaed have made this beautiful. Kaed has always been this good. We worked on small projects before and this is our first big project together. I hope we can collaborate again in the future.

Sometimes, I find myself confused. People of my age have these attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors… sort of like their collective persona. The problem is I usually find myself not having the same attitudes and it really worries me. I often find myself alone because of that. In turn, I often think that maybe I have a problem. But I’m torn because most of the time also, I know that I’m on the right side.
First, you’re not alone. There are people out there who resonate with you. You just haven’t found them yet. Second, what’s the problem with being different? It doesn’t necessarily mean wrong.
