Yo! My name is Jade
Born and raised in the tropical island of the Philippines, drawn to all things fragrant and beautiful.
As a kid, I had fond memories playing on the street with my 3 other sisters or driving down to a nearby beach on hot summer days. Our garden is lush and filled with many sorts of plants and vegetables planted by my mom and Lola. Life was basic and easy as it is – or maybe because I was just a kid back then. Probably.
Topics about food and arts insterest me a lot.
From a young age, I already found my inclination towards arts – whether it be cooking, sketching, and even dancing – and I believe it is a passion that will stay with me for as long as I live.
I am currently living in Germany with my husband Martin. Here, I got to learn – and still learning – to live the German way of life. From speaking the language and messing up DER, DIE, DAS, biking around town to get to where I need to go, to cooking authentic Sauerkraut. Though I still don’t understand this Beer-mance (an act of romance between Beer and Man).Don’t hate me.
