AND I AM HOMESICK AGAIN!

With only PhP 250-worth of facepaint and a taxi-cab-fare, my wife and our kid enjoyed trick or treating in TriNoma Mall in Quezon City this afternoon. And of course, my OFW self  became homesick again! Can you blame me for missing them so much on fun moments like this? Look how my talented wife, transformed…

TRICK OR TREAT 2010

One of the agonies of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) like me is being physically absent in those moments that are supposed to be shared with the entire family. But thanks to modern technology, those memories can reach you in a blink. This morning, my loving wifey, Tina immediately posted photos of our kid, Gabby…

UNUSUAL DINING AT T.BOWL

Back in 1997 when we were still on our first year in Med school, we did cadaver-dissection in our Gross Anatomy laboratory per group.  More or less 10 medical students were assigned to one specimen to study each systems beginning with Integumentary or skin down to the skeletal; that means, from removal of the skin,…

ON MY 86TH DAY

It has been nearly 3 months since I’ve left Pinas for work here in Penang and I can say that I have adjusted already;  hmm, well, almost. I have embraced the fact of being exposed to diversity of cultures, religions, colors, foods, public transpo (including taking a 15-min ferry ride just to enjoy weekend at…

UNTHINKABLE

These strawberries were completely clueless of their fate. They didn’t have any idea whether they will be eaten wholly, bit by bit, crushed, blended, mashed, or juiced. Alas, I forgo with the whipped cream and dunked a pair in my oatmeal+condensed milk. Apparently, no one is certain in this so called life. Every single thing…

SINFUL DINNER AT TGIF’S, PENANG

Last Saturday, my housemates and I trooped once more to the Island to unwind, forget homesickness and kill time as usual. We watched an action-comedy flick, The Other Guys, did little shopping after and filled in our tummies with yummies for dinner. There was no other choice but to sample T.G.I.F branch in Queensbay Mall,…

DO YOU DIG FERRARI?

OK, I have to admit that for few minutes last Sunday morning, my world ceased revolving as my entire attention was focused only on that prancing horse logo. Never had I’ve seen several Ferrari cars parked on a mall and a hotel before; there were at least 30 of them according to the event’s poster…
