Our Story

In 2001, four 15-year-old bestfriends dreamed of gifting their batchmates with a newsletter where everyone can share stories, artworks and even get a chance to be featured. So Chiqui, Abby, Kareen and Erchie (collectively known as CAKE) put their dream into action and became the founders of their highschool paper. The paper – pooled from the founders’ own pockets and only typewritten, sometimes even handwritten and then photocopied for distribution – worked its magic and ended up uniting the heartbeats of the entire batch.

Just as their highschool ended, many thought that the black and white highschool paper has also seen its end. Yet the same magic that had already worked its wonders once has a way of taking hold. With the spell cast, the highschool paper that started as a dream turned out to have only bid its time before it breathed into life again.

The story of Heartbeats is a story of how a simple dream can be larger than life itself. That’s why this time, Heartbeats version 2 can only dream bigger. Yet some things remain the same. Now in its digital form and with a wider audience, Heartbeatsv2 continues to pulsate from the heart of a dream.
