Like with everything these days, the days are quickly whizzing by. Just like that, it is the last day of January 2021. I know that I am always happy for the weekend to come along, but the speed by which the week goes by is sometimes really just surprising. (Which just also means the weekend […]
Day 1 of my attempt to live trash-free.
Makeup For Dummies… and Boyfriends
Overheard daughter on the phone with her almost-new boyfriend talking about make-up. For the purpose of this narrative, and because I am a bit squeamish using the “b” word (uhm, that’s “boyfriend”, not the other “b” word), I will now dub boyfie as KBB. (Because we call him Kylie Boi Boi. Not his real name. […]
I am not one for drama or pretense, but maybe because this armed conflict in Marawi, Lanao del Sur, Mindanao has been raging for quite longer than expected, and maybe because I have many times imagined life if we were in their shoes, that I am personally, genuinely, beset with anxiety about how people are […]
Text-text na lang
At dyan nagsimula ang maiksi naming balitaktakan ni ex-hubs. Medyo matagal syang hindi nagparamdam. No call, no text kahit na sa mga holidays o birthday. So hindi talaga expected na susulpot na lang siya bigla. Anyway, kamustahan lang naman ng anak ang naganap, so don’t panic. Since 18 years old na rin naman yung nagiisang […]
“Na-ano” nga ba?
Anong kaguluhan ‘to? Mukhang madaming nainis sa komento ni Sen. Tito Sotto sa Committee on Appointments hearing kahapon, nung nakasalang si DSWD Sec. Judy Taguiwalo. Eh kasi naman, pagtapos tanungin kung totoong single siya kahit na may 2 siyang anak, nag comment pa ito na, “na-ano” lang daw si Sec. Sinong hindi maiimbierna, di ba? […]

Monday Musings: Boss Battles
I get it. Power is addicting. It doesn’t matter if your sense of power comes from the major things, like running a country, or the little ones, like being able to boss your spouse around. Most especially, I guess, if you have low self-esteem to begin with. Once you are put in a position where […]
This is my first post for the year, so late new year greetings are in order: Happy new year, friends! We’re always excited about what the new year has in store for us, and I was especially excited because my bananas were finally going to be ripe enough to pick. (What? You thought I had […]
Who You Gonna Call?
A few days back, I had driven home early in the afternoon, because I had wanted to take a nap before heading out back to work for a meeting I needed to attend in person that evening. I got to my neighborhood in good time, but suddenly heard a *flapflapflap* coming from the right rear […]
