My Only Accessory

My Only Accessory

I’ve tried earrings, necklaces,bangles, headbands, what not. But I always found them either heavy or annoying. I suppose my mom isn’t giving up because she still gives me some items — items that would usually end up in my drawers. But, this I can readily say: I’m quite particular with nails. Call it a fetish … Continue reading

Easy Omelettes

Easy Omelettes

Omelettes are good to jumpstart your day. It’s nutricious, heavy, and delicious. You can just cook it with tomatoes inside (I’d recommend you add onions and garlic, though) Or add tuna inside… Depending on what’s available, you can add bacon, noodles… Or rice. Then enjoy it with hot chocolate or coffee. Wakey, wakey! Your breakfast … Continue reading

Hello, New Year

Hello, New Year

As a kid, our teachers would usually ask us to make a list of new year’s resolutions. Phrases and sentences would start with “I will not… again” or “I will be more…” made up most of my list.  A few years after that, I’d include “I’ll try to…” and “I will…”. But as I grew … Continue reading

My Homemade Spaghetti

What I love about the holidays is that you’ve got more time in the kitchen. Plus, there still are ingredients left from Noche Buena, that feast you serve on Christmas eve. I’ve, also, learned from a local celebrity chef that a good cook can make something delicious out of whatever is available… Hmm…let’s see, onions, … Continue reading

Guilty Drama Queen

Guilty Drama Queen

This is in response to the blog: And So the Telenovela-ish Drama Continues. For any person to believe a good actor is understadable. But for any person to insist what she knows is bible truth? Sinful. I have met interesting people, acquaintances, and friends in my life and I’ve met one that doesn’t even compare … Continue reading

Kay sarap ng pinanunood, pinapalakpakan Layunin ko di hamak ang ako’y kanilang pakinggan Ahhh, nadarama ko… ako’y bida na naman Mataas yaring aking entablado Mga props at costumes at assistants laging karay-karay ko Lahat ng mga ito at ang aking nakakatawang mga kwento Hindi biro ang maging isang payaso Ang pagkuha ng atensyon ng tao’y … Continue reading

Forgiven, Not Forgotten

Forgiven, Not Forgotten

I know I’m using The Corrs’ song title but when another year is about to end, one can’t help but look back at the months that passed — sometimes, even going as far back as the years before that. And when you look at triumphs and joys, it’s inevitable that you look at the hurts … Continue reading

Domus Dei: When Priests Retire

Domus Dei: When Priests Retire

“Kung pari ka, hindi ka nag-ma-mass, parang hindi ka pari.” (When you’re a priest and you don’t celebrate mass, it’s like you’re not a priest, at all.) I-Witness once again impressed me with another TV feature, Domus Dei (“Bahay ng Diyos” or “House of God“), hosted by Peabody Award winner Jay Taruc. There have actually … Continue reading
