The thing with this serendipitous couch is that I get to find things, people and incidents by “fortunate chance”, and share them (or their stories) with you as a patient candidly does with his shrink (*evil grin*).  Normally my articles get prepared a few hours before deadline (no news there) and until the very moment […]

  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 […]

  In a few days, 2012 is about to end, and we usher in the New Year.  We are still here, living through the end of the Mayan calendar, and despite chilling prophecies of doomsday, one even involving Psy and the Gangnam Style dance craze. Would you have done any differently in your remaining days […]

  It started with Pablo wreaking havoc in our country on the first week of December, when people should already be preparing for what is usually the most wonderful time of the year.  Three weeks later, the death toll has reached more than a thousand, and families affected by this killer typhoon seemingly have nothing […]

It’s Christmas time once again, time to draw that Christmas wish list in the hope that some Secret Santa will find it and give us everything on that list.  It’s been a while since I made a list like that, so bear with me as I share this: (1) a Samsung Smart TV (46″ D6600 […]
