Introducing ‘Amen’

Amen is a doll, meg’s gift from nanay on her 1st birthday.
when it was not yet ‘mute,’ Amen can recite the ‘Our Father…’ prayer when her hands are clasped together. So her name came from the last word of the prayer which is Amen. it was migi who gave her the name — maybe because it’s the only word he could catched from the prayer.

after a year, here is now Amen. liwat sa tag-iya, kalkag. =)

C as in Simala

my aunt, auntie vilma, from my mother side is on chemotherapy every 3 weeks for 6 months after her breast operation. it is sort of her habit/routine/vow that a week before her scheduled chemo, she will visit the virgin mary in simala to ask for strength.

auntie cling2x and auntie vilma

so before her 2nd scheduled chemo, we joined her family in their trip to simala. it was my first time to see auntie vilma after her 1st chemo. it kind of pull a string in my heart when i saw her almost hairless. it’s just not my usual ‘maldita/strikta-looking’ auntie vilma (imagine highschool spanish/physics teacher), the aunt who can cook killer ‘dinuguan,’ ‘humba,’ ‘patatim,’ and any hypertension-inducing dish. there was no hint of sadness or hopelessness from my aunt, she’s still the usual feisty woman but seeing her hairless cannot stop me from thinking that this can be it. though, i’m not really close to her, but of all my relatives in my mother’s side, her family is one that i get to see most often, and, i do not like to let go of her yet, her killer dinuguan. but of course, i know she will survive this.


the place is beautiful.  enough said. =)

Manuel L. Quezon III post about the glorietta bombing

http://www.quezon.ph/?p=1572
i just heard about the story around 7pm when i stopped by mercury drugstore to buy milksss, and their TV was showing the news about the bombing. i thought it was just some little incident. and when i searched for it over the net, it’s such a sad story. according to the blogs i read, the particular place of glorietta being hit is where kids shop are, and so is frequented with kids and mothers. it’s not good time to point fingers, instead let us unite and pray for world peace!

ayala cebu is having a 3-day sale, so to the shoppers be extra careful.
