Mahal = Expensive & Love

Hoy, this is Cybil Joy Pallugna-Saenz AKA ATEh UBEh a storyteller by heart, content creator at leisure, and self-taught multidisciplinary artist living in League City just south of Houston, Texas.

Our mission is to document the Filipino American diaspora through the perspective of a diasporic FILIPINX born by Lake Michigan, bred in the Dirty Third Coast, and occupying land Clear Lake adjacent.

Currently taking a break from Social Media to reset, reflect, and restore our narrative.

We will be returning in February, 2023 with a fresh outlook on story and how to give back to the community.
