Cat Ramos | バナーを作成

I am an Economics graduate from the University of Santo Tomas and I studied Japanese at the Nihongo Center Foundation Manila.

Now based in Budapest, I work full time in an investment bank. In Manila, I taught Japanese for several years at the Nihongo Center Foundation.

I love travel, books, languages, coffee and beaches. I have always loved writing and my blog is mainly about: travel, language learning, skin care, bento and food art, art and crafts.

What does “la hija del sol” mean?

It is “child of the sun” in Spanish. I’ve been using this as a blog name for over 10 years now and registered the domain in 2010. I love the sun and everything about it. I love having fun in the sun, definitely. But I consider myself sun-savvy. Meaning, SPF everyday – sun or no sun. :D
