Hi, I’m Caris.


I live for the ordinary days. Sunny mornings, late breakfasts, slow hours of writing, whispering hymns, overcoming anxiety, sleep. There are no fireworks or dance parades, just breathing, just living the mundane minutes as they go. They’re boring, I know. But lately, I realized that ordinary days make the most of us if we decide to make most of them. For when we sum them all up — quiet epiphanies, solemn sermons from random sit-downs, making strangers smile, meeting old friends and weaving new memories — they occupy the biggest spaces in our hearts. Or, at least, in mine.

I am from the Philippines. I laugh a lot and I am not very tall. I love stories. I hope you feel not alone here. x

See me on:

Tales by Trees

The healing wonders of forest bathing
There is something glorious about wandering deep into the forest; like magic, it transports you from the stress of daily life into a strange, pleasant calm.

Molecule Design

The redemption of the recycled
With the density of plastic milk jugs, experts look forward to at least a thousand years before it thoroughly decomposes into the soil.


Thirty, single, a woman, Asian
Nobody here likes it. Nobody wants to pass that bridge. When you’re thirty, the shimmer of your twenties fades away. Dread enters the floor.
