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.

I am a lover of slippers.
A Certified Freakin' lover of Slippers.

Even way back in College, rarye would comment on my going to class wearing slippers -- PANGBANYONG TSINELAS, mind you.

And guess what?

I haven't changed.

I still go to my law classes wearing slippers.

I remember, an ex once bought me, a pasalubong from manila, a pair of slippers, which although was quite pretty, just did not fit right.

Now, baba bought me this.

And it fits just right.

I guess it speaks so much of how right He is for me... No offense to the ex. hehehe.. :)

And if you have some problem about me blogging my freaking slippers, well, magkulangot ka na lang!

The art of NOT keeping Secrets

Image Hosted by

I am a keeper of secrets, or rather, an unworthy keeper of secrets. Really, really unworthy, because I can't keep it to myself... so, I bombard Erbe with all these secrets I have been told.

Sometimes, I wonder why people keep telling me their secrets but would complain about my sheer inability to keep them.

I have realized that people I know from the time I haven't even freakin' menstruated yet have their stories to tell..

Damn freakingly good juicy stories.

I listen and I sit, gaping..


Anyways, read on and read their secrets:

Has gotten married secretly without the parents knowing about it.

Admits that one is very noisy when having sex.

Has a relationship with a married person and cannot stop being with the person.

Is married but is in-love with a single person who is in-love with two people, while flirting with more.

Is in-love with a man but cannot tell her parents, afraid of their disapproval.

Is married but the person one is married to had a number of relationships with serious "consequences", and this one is getting back at the spouse.

Has gotten married but is secretly not in-love with the spouse, just got married for gainful reasons on this one's part and the spouse is oblivious to this.

Is with a partner but crying over the last, still.. while the partner does not know, the ex does not believe.

Is practically living with a partner while one's parents is completely oblivious to it, or so I still think.

Likes to view "anatomies" of others on webcam, but one is married.

Has participated in an orgy, a full orgy, about 12 of them all in all.

There is more. I will not tell anymore.

I have not divulged any names.. and I will never will. Now, can you imagine all the secrets that I am keeping?!?!?

I am not judging anybody -- because I, too, have my own secrets.. more even, some damaging to my soul. (Teka.. on the second thought.. wala naman super damaging..hehehe)

The thing is, I have realized that you might know a person all your life but you'd never really truly know a person --
Because people bends according to how fate takes them..
They have no choice on this matter because it is how life is.
So then they simply surprises you..
With their secrets and more..
