Happy May12:01 AM Sunday May 01, 2016 |

It’s May 1 na pala. Malapit na pala birthday ko. Sana when that day comes, my depression is gone. My problem is solved. Kasi ngayon feeling ko para akong jeep na palyado, atras – abante. There are moments that I am in a hurry to run, move forward, but there are still moments that I… read more

1. My son is not dieting. I occasionally buy Nestle fruit yogurt for them in case they wake up in the middle of the night looking for food. 2. We woke up early and drove up to Tagaytay. We stopped at the Starbucks in Petron for Edmund’s morning coffee. We chanced upon a group of… read more

Ask and you shall receive11:19 AM Friday April 29, 2016 |

I visited the Our Lady of Lourdes church one afternoon to offer candles. There was an afternoon wedding being held. I left the main church and moved to the side chapel where candles were located. Different color for different prayer intention I lighted different colored candles but basically for the same intentions or wishes Some… read more

1. Our maid overcooked the sliced beef. Ang tigas, tila uuga ang mga ipin ko pag pinilit kong kagatin. I just gave them to Jack and Twinkle. 2. Quezo ice cream and ice cold water don’t help much in this super hot summer days. 3. When my son first started liking this Cinnabon breadsticks, they… read more

Le Miserables in Manila12:38 PM Thursday April 28, 2016 |

My daughter encouraged me to watch Les Miserables at Solaire Casino and Resort. I really had no interest to watch this Broadway musical. Firstly, I’ve seen it a few times in other countries. Baka makatulog lang ako kasi exhausted and puyat lagi. Oyen said kahit daw basta umupo lang ako it may somehow distract me… read more

Spring Cleaning Store not yet open10:21 AM Thursday April 28, 2016 |

I already have a ready tarpaulin signage for my spring cleaning sale but my store is not ready yet. Hindi ko pa naayos yung mga gamit ko and the space I intended to put them is also not yet available. Ang dami ko pang inaasikaso, siguro sa July na lang. At tsaka para hindi gaanong… read more

It’s just too hot10:13 AM Thursday April 28, 2016 |

The heat is debilitating. It’s just too hot. At 7 in the morning, the heat is already very intense. By 8 am, I could not even step on the laminate flooring because it’s nakakapaso. Behind our house is like a jungle, full of trees, planted and ligaw na puno. These don’t help at all. Or… read more

Pasalubong from Letty10:10 AM Thursday April 28, 2016 |

I was at the clinic of Dr. Palafox in Cardinal when Edmund’s secretary called. My friend Letty Lugtu was at Ford EDSA and wanted to speak to me. I spoke to Letty on the cellphone. She’s leaving the next day and she came to drop by her pasalubong. She said she’s been in town for… read more

I’m Quiet12:53 PM Wednesday April 27, 2016 |

I’ve been quiet. Too many things are on my mind. Am trying to get out of depression, hopefully soon.

Disinterested in Politics12:50 PM Wednesday April 27, 2016 |

Before the campaign period heated up, I was so into politics, asking people around who they were voting for. Last December, I even did my own personal surveys asking about two thousand people in total “Sino ba iboboto mo?”. Then I lost steam. I got disinterested in politics. The presidential race is on to the… read more

Bacolod Chicken Inasal12:07 PM Wednesday April 27, 2016 |

Had late lunch with my son at Bacolod Chicken Inasal. We both ordered a piece of chicken with rice, iced tea, plus an extra order of appetizer, baked mussels. We didn’t have appetite but we had to force ourselves to eat. I have lost half a dozen pounds. He probably have lost more, kasi yung… read more

Santo Nino in my son’s room01:13 PM Tuesday April 26, 2016 |

This Santo Nino was a gift from one of OMB readers, named Cristina. From the altar, I moved it to my son’s bedroom, on top of his cabinet shelf. I placed battery-operated candles and left them on the whole day and night. The battery lasts for about three days.

Reading the Bible together08:09 PM Tuesday April 19, 2016 |

Every night I bring the Bible to my son’s room and we read a few verses aloud, together. I photocopied some of the paragraphs and placed it in his wallet. I also have my own copies, so that at any time of the day, when we are feeling low, we could read, pray and feel… read more

Tears10:49 PM Monday April 18, 2016 |

I thought my tears have ran dry. Hindi pala, marami pa ring tumutulo.

Sedation Day05:37 PM Monday April 18, 2016 |

Tomorrow is sedation day. I will undergo gastroscopy (upper gastrointestinal endoscopy) and colonoscopy at St. Luke’s Medical Center. I’ve had two or three colonoscopies in the past ten years done at Cardinal Santos Hospital. This would be my first gastroscopy. I am terrified with the thought that I would undergo this kind of medical procedures… read more

There’s an electronic billboard (LED) on the facade of Ford EDSA’s building and it’s for lease. It’s very visible to commuters and motorists passing through EDSA day and night. Advertise your products and services and be seen by thousands or millions of potential customers. You may rent the LED display for a month, 3 months,… read more
