I'm Katherine on paper, Kaye growing up, stuck with spelling Kaich to strangers, and called by many other names by circumstance. I love animals, especially my Sharpei Bruce, eating and cooking, singing and performing, occasionally knitting, breathing in new places, CrossFit, Super Mario Brothers, and my small, filtered circle of family and friends 💛

Greta Thunberg and Kodi Lee

Behind Every Kodi and Greta

I’m a little late to the fanfare, but this week, I finally had the chance to sit down and catch up on the Internet. Two people named Kodi Lee and Greta Thunberg were very prominent on my feed; so I clicked and followed links, like a moth lured by the social media flame. I watched videos of America’s Got Talent‘s newest champion, Kodi. He was introduced as a 22-year old blind man with autism, and his audition blew me away. Next, I read up on Greta, a 16-year old environmental activist. Only in later articles did I come across the […]

An Addictive Personality & Learning a New Language

This past April, while visiting at my friend Ekay’s house, she introduced me to a Japanese reality show called Terrace House. We didn’t even finish an entire episode, but it had piqued my interest enough that I decided to look for it on Netflix a few days later. I’m not sure how it happened, but suddenly I was watching it at every spare moment. I even downloaded episodes for when I was out of the house, and finished 3 seasons in a month. 😅 I’m a believer of the theory that what occupies your mind manifests in your life, so […]

A New Season in Sydney | Winter Wedding, Part 2

My sister is currently on their honeymoon, and I’ve only gotten around to posting about the day of the wedding. 👏🏽 Can I have a slow clap for being so good at this? 😑 Picking up from where I left off on my previous post, here’s a timeline of how things happened on July the 20th. Some photos of this destination wedding by Ry, some grabbed from the wedding suppliers, but most are my own. 05:30 I was soaking in the silence of the place as the sun made its way slowly overhead. My sister appeared calm, but I knew […]

A New Season in Sydney | Winter Wedding, Part 1

I left 5 days before the big day to help with whatever my sister needed. That meant errands, crafting, and just being there for her as she was about to transition into marriage.

Day 2 of the 30-Day Writing Challenge: (First) Recent Heartbreak | Remembering Bruce

Bruce had such a distinct personality even as a puppy. He came into our home with 2 full-grown Labradors, which made it all the more apparent. He was so tiny then; but when I set him down and let Chili and Kani sniff him for the 1st time, he stood his ground and even let out a few warning barks as if to say, “I’m not scared of you.” Within days, I knew he wouldn’t be like my other goofballs, with their in-your-face style of I-Love-You-So-Much. Bruce was somewhat aloof, came mostly when he wanted a morsel of what I […]
