An Insult to a Heritage

Why would a pension fund sell into auction one of its most valuable assets, a notable art collection of Manansalas, Ocampo’s and most prized among them, Juan Luna’s  Parisian Life? According to GSIS’s PGM Robert Vergara one of the main reason why he was considering the sell out was that, to qoute: “We do believe […]

our life markers, when we finally sit back and think…

You know what  life markers do to us? its like a highlighter pen marking a line paragraph of an indelible memory distinct in your storyline. It’s a stain in your life fabric, one that never washes out no matter how much we try, how much we want to over lap. It remains so defining, unreconcilable, […]

Do you even know why its called an Achilles heel?

It refers to one’s weakness, the one thing that topples everything down. Cez moi? nahh… I don’t have a weakness. I’m mature, I’m elegant, I’m a good looking hardworking woman who has got all the wraps and bases covered, that’s why I’m living this fabulous life… whatever. Except when I received an email that I […]

Connecting Dots…

Rainy Monday mornings and officially declared as “no work due to inclement weather” would always seem like a bonus, but when it continuously rains like the clouds were on unlimited mode, that’s when we all get worried. I’ve read a favorite line that somehow I’ve forgotten now reminded : If you don’t get what you […]

Counting days… not to the end, but to to part where we get to be freaking awesome.

“No one wants to die. Even people who wants to get to heaven don’t want to die to get there, and yet death is a destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it and that is as it should be. Because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is […]

men weren’t meant to fly… #man of steel

I can only be a mother and a woman at that #fathersday

It’s the small things that cut a big deal when you look at life in the big picture. Before his last year in high school ended for my son, there was an activity that pulled the students together to a reflection camp of sorts. They were taken out from the comforts of school and home, […]

Over reacting or nipping in the bud? Still on pugad baboy

I wanna move on. I’ve said my piece on the Pugad Baboy strip and I think I’ve already laid out my opinion well enough. After all that’s been said and done and if it’s any consolation, I happen to like the Pugad Baboy comic strip, I just didn’t like the June 4 issue and just […]

Why “pugad baboy” (pig’s nest) is so living up to its name

A cartoon strip not very funny and so outright insulting to think that its editors and publishers can be so insensitive. It speaks volumes of prejudice. A decibel exceeding what your ear can tolerate no wonder Pol Medina can only think logically by graphic swine speak. His cartoon strip speaks out his narrow-minded views on […]

When you think you deserve better part II

Why do we sometimes choose to be in lopsided relationships? It’s a rut. Some just do it for the game, which is fair as long as both sides know it is just a game. Some just go into it blindly, trusting their feelings, the novelty of having someone else treat you special, thinking finally here […]
