Farewell Nanay…

August 28, 2012


My grandmother on my dad’s side is someone whom I didn’t have much relationship with – maybe it was because my parents worked abroad while I was growing up or that there was a language barrier. Whatever the reason was, I’m still thankful because in the times that I was able to spend with her […]

My nephews

July 27, 2010


My nephews are the joy of my existence! Yes, I’m sure when I have kids I’ll probably say the same thing or something greater, but for now these 2 I have been a part of their lives right after we found out that my sister-in-law was expecting. I love them to pieces and will do […]

Well, I welcomed 2010 with my family and friends. There was a bit of “uhh, what happened?” moment when the countdown on the television stopped at 30 seconds before midnight. It was a rush to eat 12 grapes in 7 seconds, but we managed it and downed it with some Moet champagne – jumping for […]

Family and Christmas

December 17, 2009


I am a Filipino-Canadian living (obviously?) in Toronto. I’ve sometimes wondered why people travel to far off places for the Christmas season, leaving their parents, siblings and other relatives to celebrate without them.
