About Grass

Hi! My name is Grass and I’m a Geologist at your service. Beside me is a four-decade old petrographic microscope I’ve used for analyzing thousands of rocks in thin sections – most of them volcanic rocks obtained from 3 kilometers below earth’s surface.

Here are things about me:

I’m a self-confessed introvert. I find myself feeling at peace when surrounded with books, art materials, and my family.

I love singing too.

This is me as Cosette.

And this is me as Susan in the play, Tick! Tick! Boom!

I love acting, doing theatrical acts at home, for my kids’ amusement. The only time I did an actual theatrical performance on a stage in front of a sizable audience was in 2011 during our stage camp. It is yet to happen again (maybe once they consider an asian Elphaba for the next Wicked).

I love creating with my hands. I created a private group on Facebook where I conduct live demo of arts and crafts, mostly watercolor painting demos. You can visit some of my works here.

Science is, and always will be, my favorite subject, that’s why I took Geology in college. Although not a geologist, I think Albert Einstein is brilliant.

Teaching science has become a personal advocacy. My Geology Tours was born out of this love for teaching science especially to fellow homeschooling families.

I’m also into aromatherapy and natural wellness. I believe that aromatherapy is complementary to modern medicine. Three years ago I founded my team, Oilista Manila, along with fellow geologists and moms. The support team is dedicated to teaching about essential oils through our free classes and our Instagram and Facebook page. Do follow these social media accounts for class announcements. 🙂

I dabble in watercolor now – a hobby that I got into during the start of pandemic. When I’m not painting on my craft table, I am creating resin jewelries.

I made this blog because I tend to express myself better through writing. If you happen to meet me in person and I looked snob, my apologies, in advance. I swear it’s just the eyebrows and my resting bitch face. Tell me a few jokes and your life story and you’ll find good listener in me. We’d probably be friends for life too!

Finally, these two are the very reason why every day is a miracle. I love them both so much. Like me, they love the beach and the great outdoors so much!
