About | Memento Vivere | A Lifestyle Blog by Andi | Asia

Hey There, Welcome to my Blog

I'm Andi Griffiths, a digital content provider and freelance communications consultant from the beautiful Republic of the Philippines (proud Filipina). I like flowers, coffee, and anything creative. 

This website started as an online diary that has evolved into a lifestyle blog with fresh, original content. All articles are my own unless stated otherwise.

Apart from sharing a few personal things, I intend to inform or provide inspiration with every post. Your time is valuable, and that's one of the reasons why I do my best to make the entries as insightful as I can.

I hope you find something that suits your interest or curiosity. 

It's nice to have you here, and again, welcome!

Make sure to check out the planner printables on the homepage. You can download them for free!

Well, what else can I say? No hate, just love 💖

See you when I see you; if, for some reason, our paths cross.

Let's Get Acquainted

For starters, I'm an ambivert; I'm cool with spending time alone or enjoying the company of others. I'm a simple and easy-going person. I like sensible (or sometimes just random) conversations over coffee.

I was born and raised in Pasig City but have also lived in South Luzon, where I attended university. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Major in Public Relations from DLSU-D.

Music is my first love. It was a big part of my life when I was a gigging musician who performed original songs at local bars back in the day (I miss those days, I've become so rusty and couldn't even play now lol).

What Else? Hmm..,

I love cooking for my family, reading books, and shopping for stationery items. I also love karaoke and snacks. 

My favorite color is Purple, but I like to wear clothes in Earthy hues (forest Green, mustard Yellow, Beige, etc.). 


There may be a lot of things that I share on this blog, but I keep far more things private.

Memento Vivere | What's w/the Blog Name?

There comes a point in a person’s life when one realizes what the phrase "life is short" truly means. 


This realization can be the effect of a life-changing event, a period of reflection, or a series of simple moments that emphasize how time does not stop for anyone. As for me, it was kind of all of those things.


I renamed my blog from A Sanctuary of Thoughts to Memento Vivere because I like what the words stand for.

The phrase is also a great way to remind ourselves to live and not just exist.


Embrace the highs and lows. Keep growing.

Let your light shine. Let magic happen.

Do what you love and what makes your heart happy.

Memento Vivere. Remember to live 💖

That's it for now. Thanks again for being here, I appreciate it.
