Happy Thursday! First things first: What They Don't Teach You is now on Spotify!!! Head over there to follow and listen!
°°°
So pleased to have recorded two episodes of audio delight with Toshe. The first episode discusses his move from a small town in Bulgaria to working in the City in London. The second episode discusses his coming to terms with his sexuality and Toshe gives a no holds barred account of what dating guys is like!

답정너. This Korean word describes the moment when you ask a question to somebody and already know what they are going to say, regardless if they respond or not.

This summer has been the best in a long time. I’m usually over it by August, but so much has happened and changed over the last few months that it’s hard to see it go. Oh well, time to see what autumn has for me! .

Probably the time we had less than a 100hrs of sun in an entire winter. Was when I learnt to REALLY appreciate the value of a warm back. The privilege of slipping into sandals without the grit of the cold floor to prepare myself for first thing in the morning. Central European winters can be a force to reckon with sometimes. They made a bit of a warrior out of me. And maybe just a little less of a lover on some days.

For now though this is me saying thank you to Mannheim for one of the longest summers I‘ve ever had in Germany. Feels like the kind of thing thats apt to remember an object of love with. So thank you.

Do you send postcards to friends and family while traveling? -
I am going old school today, by sending some friends some cool postcards of #Toronto. I like the idea of staying in touch without having to send a text or email! -

Long before @crazyrichasians came out as a film, I was obsessed with the books not only because it was a fun story set on a sexy backdrop, but because I loved this reflection of a world I knew. I grew up culturally Chinese in Manila and culturally Filipina in the US; and while I didn't consider myself as a Third Culture kid growing up, I def became one as an adult, when I began spending my life across the USA, Asia, and now Europe. .
.
.
When I lived in Manila in 2012, it was normal for me to have friends who were Fil- Brits or Fil- Aussies or Fil- Kuwaitis, and I always wished my friends from the States could see how much more diverse our diaspora actually was. Now that I live in Paris, I share my life with a French-Laotian, and I am blessed to be a part of his family of mixed Asian heritage, all rooted in France. .
.
.
@kevinkwanbooks and @jonmchu created a story about this world that looks a bit like the one I live in, and I'm so glad everyone else can see how beautiful the diaspora really is. I can't wait for it to come to Paris in October!
.
.

PS. Beyond the opulence, the story really is about so many other things: love, family, and culture. Besides that, it's just a really good rom-com. And I LOVE rom-coms! ❤️✨ .

When you think life is easy and everything just comes and falls into place and not have to give every second of your time fighting for what you believe in. Life isn’t about that it’s about spending it with the ones that you care about the most and what to be with for your whole life. It’s about being with the people who will help you become great. We are human we are all the same but only rare amount of us are loyal to there angel. #thirdculturekid #thirdculter #worriedface #surfer #beachbum #dickiesclothing #skullcandy #loyaltothebrand #music #angel #dreamgirl #oneofakind #braincellsonfire #surferboychef #blueeyes #workhardfornothingb

WOMEN INSPIRE ME
Don’t get me wrong. This isn’t some women empowerment and men bashing post. I love my husband and am so proud of him. I’m grateful for the amazing men around here.

I’m just so impressed with all the ambitious women in my life right now. Their dreams and plans are out of this world!! 🤯 Seriously.
Whether it’s a goal of having a conference
Becoming an IG influencer
Testing out something new without worry of perfection
Giving away millions
Becoming a reverse tither...
All of you are amazing!

You are the rockstars! I’m so blessed that we can RUN together!

Lift up the women who inspire you by tagging them below. ⬇️ Also, let me know what some of your big goals are too!

You all are powerful beings perfectly created for a phenomenal work! 🔥⚡️

#thirdculturekid and the winds of change... do we bend or break? Are we deep rooted or do we break away, displaced? Or are we so used to the movement of change that it is stillness that we find more challenging? #growth #rootedness #lifestory

Spilled by Tb (@ohyesdefinitely), a queer, 2nd generation Viet-Am 'little sister' and early prototype Cyborg using multimedia to share their Asian American experience. This story is about their identity in relation to their family's cultural history. Trying to root up deeply embedded intergenerational expectations. And clarifying real intimacy/understanding with their mother, which feels possible through eating a lot of Banh Mi.

Where are you really from? How can you speak such good English if you're not American? Are you Hispanic but a convert? Why did you come here from Mexico and not Pakistan? Wait, you were born in France!?They have THAT name in your country too?! These were some of the questions I often got asked while I was studying in the US.
.
See, I speak Spanish, American English, Urdu, a little bit of Arabic and was fluent in French ( I pretty much lost the language over time 😐). And add to that my name - Maria!! So yes, as you can imagine, I confused people a lot lol.
As human beings, we tend to make sense of things by putting them in a certain box otherwise, it leaves us perplexed to our core.
Anything that doesn't fit in one of the boxes usually ends up in the 'weird' box.
.
Let's all learn to embrace each other as we are, regardless of the skin color, features, race etc.
When I meet someone for the first time, I see no color, no ethnicity, no religion, no race because that's how I was raised by my parents.
What I truly see, is a whole person - a human - perfectly imperfect. And I know one thing for sure - whoever I meet for the first time is bound to be from somewhere on planet earth. And that is enough for me. Ta Da!

Wow! Big E's first self portrait. In the past he has told us his scribbles are himself or daddy, etc, but this is the first drawing where he really shows control using a variety of shapes/lines.

When we are together, we speak a mix of languages and are always learning about different cultures from one another. My parents are from Poland 🇵🇱 and my sister & I grew up in the States speaking Polish at home and English in school. My Dad is totally a language person and still speaks German 🇩🇪 (and Russian too 🇷🇺 ). My husband is Croatian 🇭🇷(he’s great at languages and speaks so many). My brother-in-law is Italian American 🇮🇹🇺🇸 and always teaches us about true American customs when we’re all being a little too Euro. My niece and nephew are Polish & Italian and #bornintheUSA 🇺🇸 they love when I read books to them in German! I’m so grateful we got to go to Poland together and make so many memories ❤️ Does anyone in your family speak another language? #Kampršaroni #NaszaRodzina

“A family is not just something that you become, it’s something that you DO!” - so grateful for this little family of mine! I love to keep things real. Our lives don’t look so happy like this picture every.single.day but we really DO try to keep doing our best, loving and caring for each other and in my opinion, that’s what family is all about.

“Família não é algo que você se torna. É algo que você FAZ.” Sou muito grata pela família que tenho e por tentarmos fazer o nosso melhor a cada dia, amando e cuidando um do outro. //// Nem a família do comercial da margarina é perfeita. Um dia descobriu-se que a tal da margarina idolatrada e sorridente era uma grande falsiane. Boom! 💥 Aqui a gente não é perfeito. Tem arranca-rabo e pega-pra-capar, mas também tem amor e manteiga de verdade. ❤️

“Whenever I get asked on what I consider to be home, I always say it's both The Philippines and Hong Kong. I could never choose. When I was growing up, I kept going back and forth between the two. Then, when we finally decided to stay in Hong Kong for good, there was still a part of me that yearned for The Philippines.

Cut to, I guess I just found myself somewhat stuck in the middle. I spent most of my childhood in PH but whenever I go back for vacation, there are some things that I just can't seem to relate to or agree with. On the flip side, being in Hong Kong, I don't necessarily connect with the 'local' culture.

Yes, I have a complicated and somewhat confusing history but it's something that I'm thankful for. Having the best of both worlds, I learned to appreciate what I have and fight for what I deserve. It wasn't easy but it was definitely worth it.” — Abegaile

I dont travel fancy. I travel comfortably.
My all time advice when traveling, yes, it is true as a woman, i would want to look stunning everytime and everywhere, but i've always been this simple gitl who doesnt like a lot of stuff in my body or wearing colors. And it happened also when im traveling somewhere. I dont have this particular fashion statement, unlike girls who are quite consistant with their style (and i think thats gorgeous and awesome), i dont have any, i stayed simple ever since, so when it comes to traveling i prefer to use comfortable clothes (probably sweater, jogging pants or leggings, oversized jeans, and sneakers). Make sure to be comfy when sleeping or walking or eating during traveling ✔✔ #traveltips #tcktravels #thirdculturekid #travelculture #weekend #KL
