Star Wars is kinda my life. I first saw the movies when I was around five years old. I made my brother watch it while he was still in diapers. I joined Star Wars Philippines, a local fan club, in 2003. That’s where I met my husband, Oneal.
In 2005 Oneal and I became members of the 501st Legion, an international organization of Star Wars fans who dress up as the bad guys and girls from a galaxy far, far away. (Oneal’s 501st page | my member page | Philippine Garrison) In 2010 we got married in a Star Wars wedding that people are still talking about.
So yeah, Star Wars is my life. Because everyone knows this, editors often ask me to write about Star Wars. They ask me to write about the 501st, about the new movies, about the toys, about the charity work.
On a whim, I decided to compile all the links to all the articles I’ve written related to Star Wars. And apparently I’ve written a lot! Check it out. Most of the photos are mine too!

Really cool post! If you love geeking out and writing about it, I’m wondering if you post on any other movie websites and so on? 🙂
Thanks! Mostly I write for print and online publications here in the Philippines. If I get invited to contribute to other websites though, I’d be happy to!
Will do! Thanks for the offer!
