I love that Japanese saying :D. I first heard it in 'Makanai' - a beautiful and understated series on Netflix.

I also just figured out why my nickname is Rica (Raphaela Carina). I thought that Filipinos just have a tradition of naming their children one thing, and then giving them a complete unrelated nickname and literally never calling us by our birth certificate name...

Thanks for solving that mystery!
