Alyzza Acabal is a blogger, freelance writer, law student, and virtual assistant based in the Philippines.

So you finally discovered my little treasure chest where I post all the things that I love! “alyzza|speaks” actually began as a passion project back in 2016 when I decided to compile all the things I learned in the past 10 years of having worked as a Filipino virtual assistant.

In this blog, I share my little tips and tricks as to how I started my professional online career. From creating an eye-catching resume to applying for your first job. I also do a bit of graphic work and some post-production photo editing. You can get free access to my Lightroom Presets by dropping me a message on my Instagram (@alyzzaspeaksph)!

As you dive deeper into my blog, you’ll notice that I have a love-hate relationship with traveling. I’ve always wanted to explore new places and immerse in their culture. Unlike most wanderers, however, I don’t consider myself to be an adventure junkie. I love serene, colorful places with just a bit of touch of history.

From time-to-time, I’ll be documenting my “not-so-adventurous” (and often chaotic) experiences. I also committed myself to visit all 81 provinces of the Philippines. Learn more about Project 81 here.

I grew up in a small town called Surigao City, somewhere South of the Philippines. Today, I have two beautiful young boys who inspire me in everything I do and a lifelong travel buddy (who also doubles as my photographer).

To drop me a message, or if you simply want to connect, you can catch me on Facebook and Instagram or comment on one of my blog posts.

If you are a brand, business, or fellow blogger and wish to collaborate with me, you can email me at

That’s all for now!
