A cheat-sheet on me

Hi there!

I’m Pat.

It has taken me months to figure this “About me” Page because how can I can’t summarize myself in a sentence. So instead, here’s a cheat sheet to my life:

What do I do?

I write. Basically that’s pretty much it.

If I’m not in Manila I’m in:

Singapore or Canada. Most likely. I like Hong Kong too. And even if I’d love to go to Australia… I just don’t have the funds. Or I’m somewhere using this hashtag: #TeaPatTravels

Currently reading:

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I don’t read that much any more because I read/write for a living. Also, Big Magic is one of those books you wish could never end so I’m taking my time reading.

Biggest achievement ever:

By far? Having the license to name Sunnies Studios’ planner colors and Sunnies Cafe’s  milkshakes. That’s the moment I knew I made it.

The most expensive over-priced thing I ever bought:

Balmaination shirt from H&M. I waited 3 hours for this lousy shirt. Of course, I blogged about it.

The best time of my life was:

Anything from college onwards. High school was filled with sloppy bitches and bullies.

My favourite days in a week:

Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. Monday suxx.

Artists I could listen to until I die

The Beatles, Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith, Yuna, Foxes, Vance Joy, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, San Cisco, CRWN.

Best Concert I’ve been to:

Oh Wonder with Lany as the opening. AH-MAY-ZING. It was an intimate concert (more of a  get-together) at the Calgary Flames. You can really feel the songs hitting you. I almost cried.

If I’m mad at you I will forgive you if you feed me…

Macarons.  Ramen/sushi. Village Ice Cream. No need to say sorry. Just feed me.

The first TV series I fell in love with:

8 years old. Sex and the City. The gospel according to Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. And then I met Blair Waldorf, another prophet. Oh, and how can I skip Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating.

Job titles I have so far:

College theatre actress

Marketing/Branding chick

Writer (and self-proclaimed editor) of MyHome and CondoLiving magazine

Blogger at BridalPod.ph

Copy chief for 11:FiftyNine

Copywriter for Sunnies Studios

Coffee shop socket hoarder

Things I wish I had more time for:

My dog. This blog. lol.

Thing I never expected would happen in my life:

Getting my first boss fired. Sorta. She resigned, technically. Long story. PM me for deets.

Clients I’ve worked with:

Topshop, Miss Selfridge

Chef Sau Del Rosario


The Municipality of Malabon

Philippine Star

Appetite Magazine

Travel Now Magazine

Guiness World Record (as a host of an event. Yup, this is for real)


Life goal I’m currently working on:

Get that blue checkmark thing on my Instagram bio.
