About me

My name is Cat. Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, I am now based in Budapest, where I’ve been living and working since 2016. I speak Tagalog and English, proficient in Japanese but out of practice.

About this blog

I started my first blog in 2004, originally to rant about daily life and work. I’ve never stopped since — blogging, that is (But I guess ranting too). My blog has since evolved and it now serves to document all my life’s adventures, particularly about travel, language learning, and living in Europe.

The name “la hija del sol” means “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. 😀

About the header picture

This is a sunset photo I took in 2016 in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. I firmly believe Palawan has the world’s best and the most beautiful islands in the world!
