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.

The sun is struggling to come out already, but i haven't slept yet. My body clock will have me waking up at 9 a.m. no matter what, and I'd be working with my eyes half closed. Damn those freakin' books. I have finished 5 novels over the weekend. Shit. I'm hooked again. Books are my personal marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine all rolled into one. I should hit the sack now.

Started reading books again - uh, ebooks to be accurate. I have tons of ebooks waiting to be read and I am not getting any reasonable amount of sleep. 

I am devouring books one after another. It's so exhausting but I've never been happier.  It gets depressing in the end though. I hate it everytime I get to the last page. I hate last pages.

Sucky Four Days

Life has been phenomenally unpleasant the past four days. It all started with my father having a stroke. That was seriously  scary. He was slurring his r's and I was really scared, imagining all sorts of crazy things.

This was followed by the missing Philhealth receipts and the unreflected Philhealth payments which had me practically screaming at the people at SM's business center. I was accusing the supervisor of "havin' no heart".

This was topped by Riley's yaya taking a really long break without informing us, and Bek-Bek running off with yet another man, leaving the house without a helper. Bek-bek's hobby is men and eloping. It's the second time she has done that. Bek is our house help. We are  freakin' hopeless without one. So, yeah, these past few days suck. Big effin' time. Whoopee. 😡

Sarong Banggi Cover by Cori :)


Isn't my niece just adorable? My mother hasn't gotten around to teaching her the rest of the song, but you have to admit, she's just awesome - like her aunt. :D

Thank You Cori.

I came across this video I took of Paige yesterday and I was awestruck by how much she has grown. Time is really passing by so fast. Fairly soon, she'd be all grown up. And she won't be this little girl who cries when she couldn't sleep beside me, holds my hand when she sleeps and tells me how much she loves me every day.  Just now she told me she doesn't want to go to sleep yet because I still have a lot of things to do and she wants to stay awake so she could help me out.  I wish she'd stay that way forever and ever, but someday she will change.  She will be her own person and she won't probably want to hold my hand every night before she sleeps.  *sigh*
