Albularyo, hilot at mangkukulam08:00 AM Tuesday June 28, 2016 |

I grew up being familiar with albularyo, hilot, balis, kulam, mambabarang, etc. Lahat ng tao sa Binangonan eh naniniwala dyan including my own parents. When someone is sick, the first thing that they call is a hilot. Baka may pilay kaya nilalagnat. Baka inoorasyunan kaya lumalaki ang tyan. Baka nakulam kaya nagsusuka. Baka nabalis kaya… read more

Tweets 1. I have always wanted to buy a clothes steamer ever since but never did because I knew the maids would just accidentally destroy it. My daughter bought one the other day. It’s the same brand as the one used by some boutique shops. It removes the clothes’ creases fast and easy. No worries… read more

Tweets 1. For dinner, I cooked the big dalag I bought from the market. It was my first time to cook pangat na dalag kasi we only ate pangat in restaurants in Rizal. I put more soup kasi we liked soup. When Edmund went to the dirty kitchen and saw what I was cooking, he… read more

Tweets # 50 1. We all know that all bacons are fatty. And yet we still keep on buying them. I found a pack that’s less fatty because according to the label, middle cut daw. I fry them crispy and place paper towels on the plate to absorb most of the fats. Sometimes I slice… read more

Trying Times10:11 PM Monday June 13, 2016 |

These are trying times. It’s like traveling to my favorite farm house where there’s fresh air, fresh eggs, cool breeze. Where you look forward to the moon shining brightly, looking up, waiting for the shooting star to appear so you could make a wish and pray it would come true. It’s like going to bed… read more

Who wants to change?08:24 AM Sunday June 12, 2016 |

I’ve been this way for more than half a century. There’s always that desire within me to change myself for the better. But just like what my father used to say, when you’re past 32, matigas na ang butu-buto mo, mahirap ng baliin. It seems like impossible to change the kind of person I’ve always… read more

Veggie and Fruits in a capsule! No need to buy, wash, gayat, gisa ng gulay at prutas. Just pop pills and let the vegetables flow into your body. I found this product in the supermarket.

Feel Better08:36 PM Saturday June 11, 2016 |

Husband needs complete body rest and mind relaxation. He is feeling dizzy. He suspects he has vertigo. He lacks sleep, energy and appetite. He had a very bad cough a few weeks ago. Because his immune system was down, he caught another virus. Feel better tart.

Sipol at Sipon10:44 AM Saturday June 11, 2016 |

Edmund and I were watching the nightly news when they showed the video clip of the now infamous sipol of Pres. Duterte to a lady journalist named Mariz Umali. Duterte belongs to a different generation. Nung kapanahunan nya, iba ang style ng mga tao. Maraming nagbago na sa higit 50 taon lumipas. Nuon, men give-up… read more

Digong Duterte and his One Billion Peso09:12 AM Saturday June 11, 2016 |

Someone told me that some candidates who lost in the most recent election gained more from the campaign fund contributions. They’ve become richer daw, and very liquid indeed.
