  Last week I could not help but laugh at the realization that there is actually a need for PAGASA’s “official declaration” that summer is here.  To date, despite the sweltering heat in the afternoons, there still is no official word so we are seemingly still in weather purgatory, neither here nor there, neither hot […]

We’re still hitting 10-deg-something chilly weather especially at night time and in the early mornings, and we’re once again given a superb reason to just curl up in bed and (apart from sleep), do what we do best on cold nights like these – read, read, read; or else, watch, watch, watch.  These are lazy […]

When I first learned about “A”, I got excited and I wanted to meet him/ her (I was not sure at the time) right away.  When I first met “A”, I was in awe, and my world – in a way – turned upside down. “A” is a 16-year-old who “inhabits” different bodies of teenagers […]

It was only two weeks ago that I was blabbering about the joys of commute with my daughter Gelai, when we took the bus to Manila to visit our relatives in Antipolo. I did not have a change of heart that easily, and I still do look forward to long commute whether through public or […]

Most people hate long commutes and feel too inconvenienced by travel. I have always loved to travel, although that is not to say I have gone to so many far off places. Believe it or not, I still don’t have a passport, but I intend to work on that this year. Anyway as a child […]

staycation

After waiting for so many months (probably coinciding with the length of P-Noy’s term so far), we finally had a long weekend. August 29, National Heroes’ Day, and August 30, the Eid ul-Fitr or the end of Ramadan, fell on a Monday and a Tuesday, respectively. Where did you spend your long weekend? Ours was […]

Where were we? Oh, previously on Bolinao Diaries (pardon me, I’m still hungover from that exhausting season finale of The Vampire Diaries): I was revelling on the paradise that is Punta Riviera at Bolinao, Pangasinan, where my family enjoyed a three-day getaway and re-charged for the summer. I did mention that we got only a […]
