A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the paper, you probably will never see it.

Tracey Connelley, Baby P's Evil Mom, Shows NO Remorse

I have never been affected by any story as much as Baby P's story has affected me. Yesterday evening, I found myself sobbing twice! I just can't get over the sheer horror of the story.

Baby P's Murderers -- Why Are They Being Protected?

In my country, it has never happened before that the media and the people have been forbidden to actually reveal the names and faces of TC and SB, the murderers of Baby P.

That Winter The Wind Blows Finale: Did Oh Soo Die?

Over the holy week break, I spent the entire four days just watching the 15 episodes of this Korean show. Yes, I am a self-confessed Korean drama addict. I already have my favorite actors and actresses; albeit, I don’t know their names.

McDo - love ko to!

I love McDonalds! love it, adore it!

and i hate pizza hut, loathe it, despise it!

i am never going to eat in pizza hut..(unless of course someone else is payin')

it has been almost a year now since pizza hut has opened... and for months, erbe and i would just glanced at it, and tell ourselves, "we gotta eat there sometime" mindful, of course, of our paltry salaries.. (unlike tinay) hehehe

anyways, one day i said, "we gotta eat there now!"

so we were sitting there, and i was dismayed with the prices of the food, and i wanted to get out, everything in me was screaming, "get out! get out now while u can!"

erbe though has this thing about going out when the waiter has asked for the order 4 times!

so, i swallowed this big lump in my throat and ordered apple pie, which happened to be this teeny little pie, and erbe ordered a chicken, which happened to be this little pathetic piece of chick-en!

but we ate it while our wallets bleed.

and we went out there and we were blaming one another..
i was almost crying because with what i had paid, i would have eaten and gotten really full at my McDonalds and Jollibee..

and so i had a new resolution: Down with Pizza HUt!

LESSON: McDonalds rocks!
