Hi, I’m Caris.


I live for the ordinary days. The boring ones, the silly ones, the ones that seem to go on forever without anything happening, if not a mishap or two, for blessings are few. But lately, I realized that ordinary days make the most of us, if we decide to make most of them.


My ordinary days: waking before dawn, sunny mornings, late breakfasts, slow hours of writing, hearing the laughs of the people I love, whispering hymns, appreciating the rain, overcoming anxiety, staying steadfast, looking into hopes unseen but are promised to come. There are no fireworks or dance parades, only gentle kisses; lingering embraces, new friends, and old memories. For when we sum them all up, they occupy the biggest spaces in our hearts.

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.
