Just this morning, I went to 168 Shopping Mall with my mother, sister and two of her friends. As expected,  hundreds of shoppers are found in that mall. I’ve realized some things I should have prepared for a hassle-free shopping:

500 Days of Summer

This is the official trailer for 500 Days of Summer starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschannel. The first time I’ve watched Zooey Deschannel was on “The Happening” opposite Mark Wahlberg. 500 Days of Summer is a story of a boy meets girl, as its tagline. However, it is not a typical love story, don’t expect a fairy tale ending. I haven’t watch it, yet some of my friends who did are not happy with how the ending goes.

Love and Sorrow Story of a Swallow

Just received an email about love and sorrow-not of a human specie but of a Swallow bird. The first picture shows an injured female Swallow on the road. Her mate or husband came to feed him. When the male Swallow came back to give her more food, he was shocked to find out that her wife already died. He tried to move the female Swallow to a safe place but to no avail.

Dooms Day for Crocs

It was only two years ago when I learned about Crocs. That time, Havaianas were selling like pancake. But actually, Crocs begun selling in 2002 and became a huge-seller. Like Havaianas, Crocs only has outlets in Metro Manila. Then, Havaianas reached Pampanga thru its outlet in Robinsons followed by Crocs in SM.Until you see almost everyone you meet wearing Havaianas and Crocs-unable to distinguish which is original. You see in market the well-copied famous flip flop brands and colorful foam…

Hospital Realizations

For the first time in my life, I was hospitalized. Definitely, it’s not something to brag about, but why do I write about it on my blog? Well, being confined at Mother Theresa of Calcutta in San Fernando, Pampanga for 3.5 days had made me realized lot of things. First of, I’m overwhelmed by the love and care (physically, emotionally and financially) of those people around me. I know I’ll be forever grateful and someday, I’ll be able to return…

Maleldo 2009

Maleldo or Mal a Aldo is a Kapampangan word for Holy Week or Mahal na Araw. The old practices and tradition of Christ’s passion and death is a common trait for all Filipinos.

Every Good Friday, local and foreign tourists flocked their way to Cutud and Sta. Lucia in San Fernando, Pampanga to witness the re-enactment…

NBI Region III Office: A Disaster!

I remember on summer of 2003,  I took a summer job at NBI Region III office. I was assigned on the Special Investigation department wherein I became the agents’ assistant. I had fun working with the agents. On Monday, I went to NBI Region III office at Clark, Pampanga to get a clearance, and I found out that they are already assigned in Manila. Back then, I remember that one can get his or her clearance only a day after…
