My Two Cents on The 2016 Philippine Elections

  There will still be some special elections on May 14. But why is Mrs. Robredo claiming the Vice President post as if she was already proclaimed as the Philippine’s VP? Will her party try vote buying again? Philippines is still a democratic country, right? So I guess I can still express my two cents on this issue. The Philippines has been governed by different generations of Cojuangcos and Aquinos not only in the presidential post but also in different government agencies, government organizations and sects, and even in entertainment. Since it’s already there and we can’t really change the fact…

Of Marriage Proposals

This blog post was posted on my WordPress account on March 10, 2015.   Mag-a-anim na taon na kami. Ilang beses na kaming tinatanong ng kung sino-sino. Relatives, friends, schoolmates, strangers, etc. Kung kelan daw ba ang kasal?

Kaya madami sa aking mga ka-trabaho ang nag-file na o mag-f-file na ng resignation dahil sa dami ng kailangang gawin sa trabaho. Bagong taon. Yan ang trend ng mga tao ngayon. Lilipat hangga’t kaya. Paubos na kami at miski ako, may ilang porsiyento rin na gustong umalis at lumipat. Tama na…

Commentary on Love, Ideals and Stability

This is my first commentary about Love. It is originally posted on my Tumblr account on July 6, 2014.   I have become the kind of person who doesn’t write something about love regularly. However, I couldn’t brush off the topic because I guess, it was an interesting thought that I could entertain once in a while. When I was writing this, I was thinking about my response to my colleague’s question one evening. He asked me about my ideal type and my thoughts on stability. We know for a fact that I’m not a love guru. If I hadn’t…
