Bittersweet Review!

The Making of Bittersweet (Back Cover)

Take a look at BITTERSWEET’S BACK COVER put together by the fabulously talented, Kaed Paras.

Bittersweet is a collection of prose and poetry about love and life. More importantly, it contains pieces that were the aftermath of the author’s story of naivety― conceited but beautiful at the same time. It will take you to the highs of surreal happiness and to the lows of melancholia. It will make you see that growth is the end of all things good and bad.


Lastly, it is a testimony that bitter and sweet comes hand-in-hand in life. There is no other way around, but to fully embrace it with a genuine smile in the face and in the heart.

The Making of Bittersweet (Book Cover)

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.

First Poetry Collection COMING OUT MARCH 2019

‘I Didn’t Write A Line Or Two’

I Didn't (prose)

And I said to myself, “I won’t write about him.” Because all the people that I’ve written about before, I lost them all. Some I lost gradually. Some I lost in an instant. And I can’t stand to lose him. So I kept myself from writing a piece of poetry or a line of my musing of him. I tried hard not to grab a pen and make him immortal in papers. But still, the day came when I lost him. Now, I can’t blame anything or anyone for I didn’t write. I thought that we escaped the curse of my writing, but it turns out that I’m destined to lose people anyway.

Is it a joke we ask ourselves
The life we live, it makes no sense
Are we being played?
And why it’s like we’re predestined to lose?
Stuck in a haze, unable to move.
