Welcome to KFTI

Hey there! 

I'm Krisha and I'm from the island. :)

I guess you can say I'm lots of things:

a registered nurse by education
a writer and digital marketer by trade
a former slave to the BPO industry, recently emancipated
a tone-deaf emo kid who loved picking apart melodies she can't sing
a pet mother of two
an obsessive overthinker

But mainly:

I am a Cebuana, born and raised.

And one who loves to tell stories with photographs and words.

When I started this blog back in 2014 I didn't have an idea of what it was going to be about. I simply needed something to do with my time while recovering from a nasty oral surgery that will always and forever scar me from ever going to the dentist ever again (but that's another story).

During that time I was bored half to death and was itching to do...something. So I scrounged up my photographs and stories and put them all in here. It started out as a biscuit tin of oddities---places I traveled to with friends, food places, photo walks and ramblings.

And then over time, it became a chronicle of how it was like to grow up in the Queen City of the South, Cebu.

Because wherever I go, I'll always be that island girl, see.

So in this little slice of the internet you'll find: 

my mediocre attempts at photography 

chronicles about being a Cebuana millennial, which also includes shady advice on life, love, the creative profession, and adulting

secret food places you have to seek out

AND! misadventures in traveling in and out of the island

It's a little piece of what I enjoy most; a slice of home in the big, wide internets. 

I've been blogging for the past couple of years, and KFTI has gained me the opportunity to write for awesome online magazines, blogs, and brands like:

...and collaborate with really awesomesauce organizations, individuals, and creatives:

Nominated for the Bloggys 2015 and made it to the finals!

Well, that's it basically. 

On my free time, you'll find me busy with a book and writing about it (more writing?!) on my book blog, right here:

I hope you enjoy your stay here!
