manila adventures pt 2

manila adventures pt 2 is the spiritual sequel to my post Four Hours in Manila, which featured me walking around Luneta Park, the National Library, and more. I also had a blog post on my tour of the Museum of the Filipino People with my sister (though to be honest I think I’ve been to…

College Graduation!!!

Well here’s a long overdue post. Last May? 2016, I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Science in Biology. I’d like to thank my mother, fam, friends, thesis partner, professors and the UP Manila community at large. And, of course, the Filipino people.
