Oregano (Scientific name: Origanum vulgare) is also known as Wild Marjoram, Mountain Mint, Origanum, Wintersweet and Winter Marjoram.

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.

Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars

"Poison & Wine"

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice but I'd still choose you

Oh I don't love you but I always will.
I always will

Turbo Replay

I'm getting old. I used to think I'll never get tired of watching cartoons. Apparently, you tend to lose interest once you have kids. I am so tired of watching the same movie over and over again. I'm not sure how many times the girls have watched this film.

It's that time of the month again where EVERYTHING sucks.
I feel sad for no reason.
And I have a godfvkin awful temper.
And everything and everyone irritates me.
My hormones are all over the place.
I took it out on my hair. I have bangs! Really short one like a 2-yr-old hacked the damn thing.

The Tooth Fairy

Paige lost another teeth.  And yes, we've been doing the whole Tooth Fairy routine.  Maybe someday, Paige will read my blog, so here we go, "Yes, baby, there is no Tooth Fairy. It was all just your crazy mother who has this insane need to create a bubble world for you where everything is sugar and spice, sweet and nice."

Why do I do that? Why?! Why?!

The One That Got Away

Nov 15, 2013

I am














fucked up.

Right now, rioting emotions are pulling me from all sides. My heart feels like it’s about to explode.  I know why. Of course, I know why. It’s just too much, so I needed to clear my mind. Thus, I blog.

How have you been?

Musings of a Mediocre Writer

Sometimes, I still can't believe I get paid for writing. The longer the content, the higher the pay. And to think I just used to give people 25-page letters for nothing! Imagine how much that would have cost them now!

It's amazing actually - to get paid for doing something I love to do, something I 
take for granted like breathing.

And it all started the day I decided to start a journal.
