“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 […]

  The sweet journey continues.  After spending the night in Davao City’s very cozy Domicilio Lorenzo Apartelle, we spent the next morning visiting the Cathedral and having breakfast buffet at the Marco Polo Davao.  I got worried halfway through the buffet, knowing full well we were on our way to the beach island of Samal […]

I have just gotten back from a four-day vacation, and it was an experience I will never forget.  Up until 3 years ago, I have never succumbed to the travel bug, as I would usually just travel out of necessity, be it job-related, or for family gatherings I simply could not get out of.  When […]

Again I would like to blame it on the weather, but I won’t. I love the sound of rain. But yes, for some reason all is not well in my universe again.  After a fabulous four-day weekend, and sleep, lots of sleep, I knew there was a catch. The four glorious days in bed was […]

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.  […]

Turning the pages of my mothersmother diaries, I distinctly remember our heartache last year, a very painful experience we went through when our little diva Nadine was accelerated to Grade 1.  Ok, let me take a step back as you might be wondering what “heartbreak” that was, and why it should be painful when promotion […]

I just turned 38 last week, and I still do not see any need to lie about my age.  Truth is, I would rather lie about my waistline, not my age.
