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.

Got goosebumps while reading this!👌

Never knew that C.S. Lewis was an atheist. If you have read The Chronicles of Narnia and have felt his devotion to his faith in God, you’ll be totally surprised by this revelation.

And just reading the names of the celebrated writers whom George Macdonald has touched, you’ll be amazed by him.

First Poetry Collection COMING OUT MARCH 2019

20 Over 20: Year-end thoughts of a 20 year old

When I was a little girl, I swore to myself that one day, I’ll have my own ISBN (International Standard Book Number). I said that I’ll have my own book and I’ll be proud of the first ISBN that will be assigned to it. I dreamed about it because it symbolizes that you’re a real author. That you have your work in the market. That it’s legit.

My book has been released, but still in digital format as of now as numerous paperbacks are pending in the publishing house. In the publishing house’s website, you can read the first three chapters of my novel. It’s just a preview, so a lot of pages are hidden. Then a couple of days ago, finally, my publisher sent me MY COPY of my debut novel in digital format. And when I saw the ISBN, I just felt my heart jumped because this is it.

My book has been released a long time ago, but it still fascinates me how dreams really do come true after all the passion and efforts you’ve poured out. I get to have my ISBN (not technically mine, but still haha!).

And just a couple more days to go, I might get my anthology of prose and poetry as well as a new novel of mine in a contract deal with another publisher. The waiting time is almost over. Cross fingers, hoping, praying. And by next year, through Sir Pong’s help (he’s my Film Appreciation and Production professor), a bigger opportunity is waiting.

The joy in my heart is already up to the brim. I’m looking forward to becoming a writer who won’t be boxed in only one line of work or genre or whatsoever.

2018 has been a wonderful year for my writing career.

To the people who have been by my side all throughout, you know who you all are. I love you!

‘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.
