There will be a particular set of people you’ll come across in your life who will bring a certain light and lightness. Inexorable. Glowing. Fated. It can be one specific thing or an amalgamation of everything. You’re touched by the openness of their smile, generosity of their heart — a personality that’s unfeigned, unadulterated, unpracticed.

Believe it or not, I had planned on sharing this story back in November 2013. But a whirlwind came into my world and asked a lot from my time and energy that I only had time to do this today. Quite happy that I found the photos I had worked on then, saved a lot […]

Let me first tell you about my new hair. It’s a month in now, hence, normal to most haircuts, they would look twice better as when you first step out of the salon. Oh yea, I haven’t been in town for the last few months — with just the occasional popping in to take care […]

“For folks who really know me and how I celebrate my birthdays, this year offered a colossal difference to how I went about my special day. Moving to a new place (a different country) with no friends and family, I had to make an effort to fashion the occasion to be less depressing than one […]

Last minute decision to head off to Filinvest Tent in Alabang, I sent a quick message to my friend to meet me there. With the weather suffering indecision, unsure if the bit in the program I was looking forward to will still push through. It did; as I had shifted my car to park a […]

“Chance is a tornado.. the door open to adventure and unknown, just like lips ready for a kiss.” Delicately sparkling and endlessly romantic, a young floral fragrance dipped in Gabrielle Chanel’s belief in the power of chance. A scent created by Jacques Polge in 2003 that’s made for women who dare to dream. Yes, delicate […]

All is fair in love and war, an old adage sings. Taking calculated risks, hoping for a more controlled outcome, or Murphy’s Law in effect, regardless, things happen — good or bad. Playing the blame game is a waste of time; swimming against the tide may prove futile. In most instances, it’s best to expect […]

I’ve given up the thought that I’d ever be one of those fitness buffs wherein one would set aside time in a week esp for sweating. May it be to play badminton, run or jog, or perhaps yoga. BUT this doesn’t mean I can’t hope that circumstances and leanings can change down the road, now […]

Plate’s been full since beginning of last week and there are still a few more important errands to run for the next couple of weeks. It’s funny how these things seemingly conspire to happen all at the same time, sometimes. Leaving you no spare time and quite exhausted on some days. So, before the backlog […]

After filial responsibilities for a nation’s tradition to spend time and celebrate Todos los Santos at the cemetery, I dashed off to mark the holiday in a more Western way by 12:01. Halloween party at Black Market. Backtracking to 2 days ago, “Costumes K!” — a friend’s text message. I was, like, WHUT. How was […]
