Dear Liam…

Today is mother’s day. I woke up with tears of pain after you pushed the jar that dropped on my head. It was not your fault… But that jar really woke me up. 🙂 It made me realize how time flies so so fast. It felt like yesterday when you were still in my dreams–blurred dreams that never revealed your face. And today, you were right beside me, pulling me out of my dream. There were times when I feel lonely and guilty for working days and sleeping through nights away from you. I want to sing more lullabies for you before you get to know Justin Bieber. I want to spend more play time with you. I want to be that person proudly strolling around the neighborhood […]

On fandom wars and class officers…

Photo credit: Mar Roxas Official FB Page The fandom war among AlDub, JaDine, KathNiel, and LizQuen fans had been put to rest for a while (at least not that loud), thanks to DuCay, BinGo, RoRo, PoeChiz, and YamBong. I’ve always thought that mix-matching political tandems isn’t fair as it isn’t even easy for love teams to switch partners. For one, the choice of partner in a political arena is more than just a chemistry that clicked then sold. It required a lot MORE because we deserve MORE THAN A SHOW.

  “I have never believed that hatred and recrimination can solve problems.”  That was a message printed on a card placed at the entrance to the wake of a 4 year-old child brutally beheaded near her mom… And that message came from the mom herself, Claire Wang. I shared Wang’s story more than a month ago when I thought it was very timely to help make people see that it ain’t too late to have more faith in humanity… But it seems it wasn’t shared enough. Our sympathy always go to the innocent. What exactly could appease a victim? Justice, we say. But is justice always equivalent to punishment? And is death really an acceptable punishment? We’ve been clamouring for justice too […]

Maria Jamie Chenee

Chenee, my dear… Soon your life will change. We don’t know how, we don’t know where, And we may die not knowing why, But something is meant to pass. It will transform you in ways you’ll never know— It can push you away, break you or ask you to let go. It will make you the person you ought to be—may not be who you wanted to be. It may not be who you thought you’ll be, but it is the reason you were designed to breathe. Jamie, my dear… Someday we’ll figure out, How the days we shared food and traveled a lot, The nights we laughed and sang too loud, Will bring us where we were called and […]
