Bipolar Album Launch

October 27, 2008

I’m one of the lucky few to be at the venue – stress free! The early birds (rain, sanners and me) catches the front row! Now I finally understood why rain was whining and getting worried about the lighting when we first got in – it was so hard to get a good shot. Majority […]

Remembering Ninoy

August 21, 2007

Today is the death anniversary of Ninoy, I found this article by Elmer Ordoñez of the Manila Times remembering the martyr.

Huntington Here’s hoping that the next generation of Filipinos (I’m no longer counting on this one) will finally see the “bigger picture”. The main difference: progressive cultures are emphasizing and investing in the future compared to our people whose current […]

Hot Hot “Gabi”

June 8, 2006

Another infamous day for fast food here in the middle of nowhere (my office). This got me craving for something Pinoy — Laing!!! "Laing" as it is commonly called, is one of the Filipino ethnic foods, which is a delicacy of the Bicol Region. However, this has also captured the discriminating taste of non-Bicolanos.
