“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. So that’s my wish for you, and […]

plunder games

One day to go and it will be the Philippine premiere of the movie “Catching Fire”, the second in the Hunger Games trilogy.  I am a huge fan of both the books and the first movie, and I am hoping the second movie is a very good adaptation as well. For those who have not […]

  The planning started out sometime in April, as soon as my bestie Manny confirmed that he is set to come home in October.  I have to admit, the wanderluster in me started the ball rolling, although at first I was suggesting a getaway closer to home, somewhere to the tune of Thunderbird Poro Point, […]

It’s actually my eldest daughter’s fault. But wait, before you think my 14-year-old is into some despicable rebellious behavior, […]

My Mama used to say that we should take time to re-read books we’ve loved when we were younger, just to see if we have the same perspective, and the same reaction to what we read.  Chances are we don’t, not because of any change in the book (none, evidently), but because we have changed.  […]

rainy day reads 2013

  It’s rainy season once again, yet another reason to find yourself curled up in bed with a good book, and probably a steaming cup of coffee or chocolate drink within arm’s reach.  If it were up to me I would also prefer having a bedside commode especially if I were engrossed in some really […]
