No cancer03:14 PM Wednesday December 17, 2014 |

I am still crying up to now. Parang na-trauma ako. I just couldn’t help but feel terrified and sad. Sad for losing Jazzy. Terrified for the worst that could have happened. I also feel guilty. I was the one who hired that guy. When he was brought to me, there was some hesitation in my… read more

Jazzy goes to heaven10:44 PM Tuesday December 16, 2014 |

We lost our dearest dog Jazzy this morning. It’s doubly painful because she didn’t deserve to die like this. She went through a lot of medical issues and yet she beat them all. She fought for her life many times. This morning, in between sobs, my daughter said maybe we could still save her, we… read more

A very sad morning03:34 PM Tuesday December 16, 2014 |

It’s a very sad morning for us. Until now, we are still shaking. Edmund said it’s only now that it’s beginning to sink in. He’s so mad. Me naman, parang mag ne nervous break-down ako. My knees are still shaking. Accidents do happen, and in our case, it happened this morning, inside our garage. One… read more

Tragic Morning01:47 PM Tuesday December 16, 2014 |

Today 8 am while I was in my bathroom, while Edmund was in his bathroom, we heard a very loud crash followed by the sound of broken glasses. It was so loud that the whole neighborhood must have heard it. My first reaction was to run to the window, I didn’t see the garbage truck…. read more

Friendly greetings11:23 PM Monday December 15, 2014 |

My daughter told me I am not mabarkada daw. She said it would be nice to have barkada. That’s true. I’ve observed that many women’s closest friends are those they met in school, usually from elementary, high school, or college. They are more comfortable with people they’ve met when they had no inhibitions yet, wala… read more

Sakura Lunch08:35 AM Monday December 15, 2014 |

The first two weeks of December was full packed. My last week’s schedule was insane. Puro kain lang naman. Christmas lunch and dinner parties. My friend and I had our annual luncheon party for two people in Sakura, the Japanese restaurant on the 6th floor of Alphaland in Pasong Tamo. I was there at 12:25… read more

10000 Yen & Tori Burch01:32 AM Sunday December 14, 2014 |

I thought someone sent me 10000 Japanese yen for shopping in Gotemba. It’s for OMB Charities pala. Ten thousand yen is equivalent to approximately 3,700 pesos. It can buy two sacks of rice for the lugaw feeding program. Thank you Det for your generosity. BTW, there’s a Tori Burch supot that came with the Yen…. read more

Lugaw Feeding04:41 PM Friday December 12, 2014 |

I was dead tired last Monday. When I left PGH I was feeling like a vegetable. I couldn’t even open my eyes. When I reached my office, I couldn’t sit straight, Edmund came and saw me literally on my desk. “What happened?” Nakasubsob ako sa lamesa. Even after I took Biogesic and a tiny pinch… read more

Martin Nievera and art09:07 AM Thursday December 11, 2014 |

When I paid for our Martin Nievera tickets at the village admin office a few days before the event, I asked the staff how many songs would Martin sing? Baka kako tatlong kanta lang eh bitin. She said what’s written in the contract is six to seven songs. The “to seven” I would suppose is… read more
