Family Traditions

Let's talk about a girl named Eeka (Erica) which is me of course. This picture is from April 2010 when I went to visit my family in California and this is me and my nephew Joon (Kevin Jr.) in Vegas.

A lot of people ask where the name Eeka came from. Well, in the Filipino culture we have a lot of fun traditions and one of them is family nicknames. My nephew in the picture couldn't pronounce his r's when he was little, hence Erica came out as Eeka. and BAM! It stuck. My mom has always called me Eeka, so it's okay if you call me Eeka too. As far as the Cupcake part goes, I just really love cupcakes. Like a lot!
