Born a Dragon, Raised a Tiger is a journal created to reach out and share experiences and feelings in the life of a single mom.

I was born in the Dragon year of 1964. Chinese Astrology decribes Dragons as powerful, mysterious, and goal driven. Exactly me. (Except maybe the "powerful" part)

Western Astrology tags me as a Scorpio, being November born. They define a Scorpio as determined, intense, trustworthy and takes their relationships seriously.

From nursery till high school, I attended exclusive Catholic girls' schools. After graduation, I went to college at the University of Santo Tomas, where I had my awakening as a Tiger. In this Institution, I learned to be a strong, "never say die" person. There were so many challenges to face - the long commute, the 10 hour class schedule, the flooding, and the "no failures" rule my parents imposed on me. Just like a tiger, I had to survive in this jungle. These experiences I had made molded me into a true blooded Thomasian - "Maka-Diyos, Maka-bayan, Maka-tao...TOMASINO." ( Thomasian: For God, For Country, For the People)

A Dragon-Scorpio that was raised as a Tiger may bring fear and indifference in others, but this blog is made to show the softer, more sensitive side of it. We care deeply, love intensely, and would be willing to go to the ends of the earth to provide and protect the ones we love.

Sharing my life with you.
