It’s a beautiful morning

The disadvantage of being on Eastern Standard Time out here in the west is that your body wakes you up at 4:38AM and soon after, it wants breakfast.

The advantage of being up at 4:38AM is that you get to catch one of the most beautiful sunrises you’ve seen in a while.

Never mind that I was standing on the window ledge, in my pajamas, and folks standing on the street may have thought I was two shakes shy of a cocktail.

That’ll just the be perfect setup for the rest of my day.

    I have been reading your blog for a while now and I’m excited to see that you’re in San Francisco (where I work) enjoying the view! I walked right by that exact spot this morning, a couple hours after you took this photo probably. Enjoy the city, it’s going to be a beautiful day!

    oh Erika ~ it’s days like today i’m grateful for friends like you who get to travel to the West Coast and take photos like this; and then you share them with those of us longing for warm weather and sunny skies . . . as we look out on the frozen tundra that surround us. enjoy your time!

    I just wish one of us had been outside to capture a picture of you taking pictures in your pjs. Cuz the rest of us East Coasters were up, too. :) So good to meet you this past week!

    Enjoy your visit. Hope to read more from you soon, because youre an excellent writer. Take all the time you need to heal from such a devastating event, though at least you all luckily survived. Cried reading about your son saving his grandmother. Sending hugs from the blogosphere!

about me

I write, cook, play music, and make pictures. Not necessarily in that order. I was born and raised in the Philippines, and it shows. That means I eat rice with every meal, love my cousins like my own siblings, and firmly believe that avocados are best eaten with cream and sugar.

If you want to learn more about me, here are 43 things I'd like to do. Here's a little something about my name, in case you were wondering. Here are some other places you'll find me:

One summer night in 2010, our house burned to the ground and we lost everything we had. This is the story of what happened and how life and hope can always rise from ashes.

I'm proud to belong to an amazing community of Filipino food lovers. Together, we celebrate this often-neglected Asian cuisine, sharing our family's treasured recipes and discovering new ones along the way. This is our club.
