I was born in the Philippines, grew up with all its creepy superstitions, somehow ended up in Silicon Valley afraid to put pillowcases on my pillows at night.
I blog about being a mom to an introverted kid who wants to be called Grimlock, and taking care of aging parents that are afraid of yogurt, their smartphones, and anyone not Filipino. My partner, Futurehusband, is white.
I write from the point of view of these intersections, a point of view shared by many but portrayed by few.
