Be Delicious

I love being single.  And the best thing about being single is the freedom to live my life the way I want it.  I do want I want, eat what I want and wear what I want when and how I want.  But a friend also told me once that you can easily notice the single girl in the group by how much attention she gives her appearance.  True, every single girl wants to always look their best.  Afterall, as they say "If you are single, everyday is a great day to meet someone special".  My take on this is not so much on appearances.  Those of you who know me would agree that I am not a pretty girl.  But...yes there's a but.  I take care of myself.  I make sure that I appear decent if not somewhat presentable.  And my best advice?  Wear a signature scent.  For me, nothing says beauty more than a clean, fresh, subtle scent.  My scent?  It has always been Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden, which smells like light citrus on a cool sunday morning.  But recently, I have discovered an even amazing scent...DKNY's Be Delicious.  Its a light and fruity apple scent perfect for summer.  I wear this scent whenever I need to feel an extra boost of confidence.  Yes, even perky single girls have low moments. But this one will certainly get you that one extra attention and compliment to feel beautiful.  So, take a bite, wear this scent and smell and feel delicious.

*DKNY Be Delicious comes in Red and Green Apple scent.  For more info go to

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"

The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.

Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

Barrio Fiesta - A reunion

I am proud to be a part of a family that values its family heritage. It has been our family tradition to hold a grand reunion every 3 years. For me, this signifies a commitment to stay in touch and get to know one’s relatives. Reunions provide us a sense of belonging as well as offer a chance to look back at our family history. It is a great time for the elders and the younger generation to meet and spend time together.

Last April 10 and 11, our family held their grand family reunion at Candon, Ilocos Sur.  It was a star studded event participated by relatives from Baguio, Manila and other provincial locations. Even those living abroad flew in to celebrate this event. 

The Manila chapter (mostly the Medina side) were in full force consisting of our dear Nanay Naty and 6 of her children, several grandchildren and even great grandchildren.

The theme for this reunion was “Barrio Fiesta”. Participants were requested to be in their best Filipino attire and those who did not follow were fined…

The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof

I remember writing about this same topic  in December of 2011.  And now, around Christmas time, when everybody else was so preoccupied with wish lists and Christmas carols, thousands of our brothers and sisters has suffered from the recent typhooon...again.

But if there is one thing admirable about the Filipino people, it is our resiliency.Our capacity to take what is given to us with smiles on our faces and hopes in our minds. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can keep us down.
And we have this uncanny way of turning even the worst disasters into moments of fun and creativity.

Like these:

At this time, the Ayala Museum has called out to fellow Filipinos out there to churn out their creative juices and submit entries relating to the phrase:  The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof And here are some of the examples:
