SIKWATE.ORG is named thus after the memory of my Lola (grandma) and of that delicious drink she used to brew for us, her grandchildren, when we were little. She was the typical grandmother — doting, kind and nannying. She used to spoil us a lot, and the best that I could do  is to name this little journal after my sweetest memory of her.

The blog is generally an ambitious attempt at encapsulating into mere words this age’s Zeitgeist — the soul of the generation, its hopes and its sorrows. While I pen these stories, some of these are lived by others and I cannot but be grateful for the privilege of telling them.

The blog talks about the concept of gratifying life in general, perhaps, in a more modern perspective. We ambitiously delve deeper into the known elements of happiness and see if these still maintain relevance in this fast-paced and shrinking world we currently have. We also dare an attempt at understanding our generation – millennials as we are known, the psychology behind us and the things which make us tick. Despite the stigma and labels stuck on us, we firmly maintain we are in no way inferior than those who came before. We simply are different for obvious reasons. After all, the unprecedented rise of technology brings about a new set of realities which, in turn, breed a new set of thinking.

Still, it is a long way ahead. We are hopeful, nonetheless. We believe it is high time we show the world what we are capable of doing. Millennials need not be dumb. Let us beat the label. And, now!

You see, we are ambitious and we are loving it. After everything is said and done, what matters the most are the things we did and not those that we could have done.

  1. What an interesting page this is! It didn’t take me long to work out you’re from The Philippines. We’ve been there once when we travelled to Manila to bring our adopted son home. Such an interesting experience – and such a colourful country of many contrasts.
    Thank you so much for following my blog – I’m going to travel around yours a bit now !

  2. I love reading your blog because it is very rich of vocab I’m not familiar of and I get excited to search on the web every time I spotted unfamiliar words. So yeah, I learned so many words from you. Keep writing and I love the way you craft every title of your blog post. It’s captivating. 🙂
