About Me


Hello people! If you have some how wandered to my page, you are in for a treat! I wanted to use this blog to talk about the things I have passion for and what I feel like I’m an expert in… Life, love and food! I think I should start with a quick intro:

My name is Qybare Pula. Just call me Q – hence the title of my blog 😉 Its a tough name say but you pronounce it like  SH-ugh-bar. Yeah, I know… I had to grow up with questions on how to pronounce my name and where it came from… sometimes that could be annoying but most of the time it helped as a conversation starter. I was born and raised in Monterey, CA but my ethnic roots are Albanian-Filipino. Bat-shit-crazy right?! I bet you have never met an Albanian/Filipino! If you have… you better send them my way. We are a rare breed. I am the middle child of three from my immigrant parents who met each other on the Monterey Peninsula. I am in my late 30’s (we will get into that subject more in my LIFE blog). I am a mom and have a full time job in the Bay Area. My fiancé, Miki, is an awesome support system and knows how to make a girl laugh (we will get more in the “about Miki” section in my LOVE blog… will be so worth the read).  🙂  I love giving advice about life, love and even food to my family and friends. Believe it or not, there is a lot of life behind my “30-something” years on this earth!

I also do have to say, I have a bit of a foul mouth and may make some sexual innuendoes (depending the mood) and probably, most likely in the FOOD blog. So, reader discretion advised.

This being my very first ever blog, please bare with me while I try to tweak the site to make it look somewhat presentable. You may ask yourself “What can I expect to read in this blog?” Well, I plan to blog on a regular basis about the shenanigans that go on in life and love. I also plan to post either a recipe, since I love to cook or blog about some of my cool favorite places to eat. With my weird ethnic background, my cooking style ranges from Asia/Southeast Asia to Eastern European/Mediterranean. Mmmm… I’m getting hungry just thinking about the food!

I would also love to hear from my readers. I encourage comments and feedback, so don’t get shy! But you must comply with the policies I have on this site…or your ass will get booted!

Please feel free to send me a private email with any questions you may have. But don’t get your panties all in a bunch if I don’t answer right away… a girl is busy!


Thank you for reading and I hope to either help or entertain you!
