Our story

D a.k.a Darna (in photo), Anastasia Bree, & Ruby Famous

Everyday, our lives intersect with so many different kinds of people. Some we may never see again, and some may stay for years.
In our case, 15 years ago.. we met in college and then on to our first call center jobs in Cebu. We came from Bacolod, Dumaguete, and Cagayan de oro and now have all left the Philippines (for now) to go on a grandiose journey of love, life, and self-discovery. We eagerly await what the future will bring to our lives, and we wish to share every special moment with you.
