musa manila has been swirling around in my head for roughly two years now and I’ve always stopped myself from jumping right in. Excuses include: I need the perfect name. I need material. I need time to refine it. I wonder who will read it. I want it to be perfect. But now I feel the time is ripe. You see, approximately a month from now, I’m going to be a year older. It’s time to do something meaningful for myself.

This blog is about finding a muse in the land I live in and the culture that’s thriving on it. I want to find inspiration in the blood that flows through me because I love being a Filipino. I want to discover how to be more Filipino every single day. musa manila is a  chronicle of the journey.
