Late post: NJ and NY


And so my very short stay on the East can be summarized into several phrases.


Freezingly ass-whipping cold.


My attempts at exercise was shoveling in front of my aunt’s home and lugging it across the street.




Manhattan was fine. Its larger and brighter in real life.


But prices were goddamn high. A blow dry is 40 bucks. From where I was from, its about 3 -4 dollars. Beat that New York!

I'm Cristina, this username was named after my husband's favorite coffee drink. In a span of less than a month in November 2015, I quit my decade old job as a news tv producer, got married to the love of my life, and flew to California, seven thousand miles from my hometown, the Philippines. Yep, thats how I roll… or how my life ricocheted.
