Oh, Hello There!

I am Aileen. My name means light. My nickname, Ai, means love in Chinese/Japanese.

I was born and raised in Cebu. Fifteen years ago, with sheer insanity and P800 in my pocket, 
I moved to Metro Manila to work for the United Nations
A good part of my life was spent doing development communications work. 

Some years back, I took a leap of faith and pursued what I have always been passionate about -- photography.
Last year, I retired from photography and started my own shoe business.

I love to eat and travel, so I maintain a travel/food blog.

I also love to spend time with my family. I’m crazy over my nephews and nieces. 
I'm fiercely loyal to family and friends, curious about the spiritual and the mystical, 
loves art and life with the same intensity, grateful for pure experiences and true friends.

This is my home in cyberspace. Please tread softly.


Pin It!
