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.

Weird Sleeping Habits

So yeah, this is how I sleep. I always need to cover the upper portion of my head with a blanket. Pretty weird, huh?

Actually, it all started when I moved out of the room I shared with my sister. After watching a scary movie or show like 6th Sense and Magandang Gabi Bayan November 1 episode, I get freakishly scared that I bury myself under the blanket. 

Unfortunately, this can be incredibly suffocating, so to avoid seeing the ghost, but still be able to breathe, I do this. Weird but effective. Over the years, it just became a sleeping habit.

It doesn't end there. Those who know me is privy to the fact that I can't sleep without my "security blanket".

I'm getting even weirder with age. Shucks.

Anyway, I know this is a completely asinine topic - so, why are you still reading this? 😉

Goodbye Girl

Tinay shared this video on our Facebook group page. She drew our notice to the comments section with her "Oh the stories shared on the comment section..."  So, I checked out the video and read the comments. The stories are so sad - one lost love after another.

I read through them and felt my heart squeezing every now and then.  One person said, "I always think about him...I don't know why."  Another told her, "The only answer I could give you are soul mates. Time and space know boundary in terms of affection."  So, Tinay, maybe that's an answer to your "why" too.

This song has a special meaning to me as well. It sort of comforted me a long time ago.  I know now that the song might be true for some, but it's probably not true for most.  So, I thought I'd leave my own little story along with the others. And that's what I did.

In Threes

God, I'm so freaking furious. 
Life shits come in threes, so maybe that was my third.
But I hope good news come in threes as well because we just had one.
Yeah, that doesn't change the fact that I'm furious and that I feel bad.
Crap. Crap. Crap.
