Now I know why Master Yoda speaks that way. Try fighting Count Dookoo (is this the correct spelling?) the way he did and see if all that twirling and turning (at such speed) don't get the words all jumbled up in your head.

Yesterday, I gave my three-month old daughter Ali a detachable round part of her wrist rattle just to see if she could already hold on to it. She did and even proceeded to wave it in the air. [more]

I try to carry a notebook and pen with me wherever I go. This way, I can always take down information that I want to remember anytime. It can be information on places to visit, books to read, movies to see, places to eat at. Even thoughts and ideas that hit me, for short entries like this, I write down. [more]

Where's that lightsabre when you need one? Didn't I tell you it would happen again? In the whole of Luzon, people probably breathed heavily and noisily as they sweated it out even more in their homes, offices, and wherever misery found them yesterday, as yet another blackout came upon us. [more]

That was an interesting entry my husband had last Friday. About how having a son shortens a mother's life span by 34 weeks and how a daughter lengthens it by 23 weeks. Don't ask me though how my husband finds such bits and pieces on the web. He just does. [more]

"I shouldn't have eaten the cheesecake last night," my hubby complains as he wakes up the next morning with a sore throat. To Manuel, everything (particularly if you start to feel sick or not too well) boils down to what one eats. [more]

It was Mother's Day yesterday but I bet, most mothers, still really didn't spend much time doing things for themselves but went through their day caring for their families. It's just in their nature, I suppose. [more]

Can't wait to watch Episode 2, Attack of the Clones. Never mind if my husband says that people generally didn't like Episode 1. The Star Wars prequels, just like Spiderman (didn't you think Peter Parker was pretty cruel, what with his hospital dialogue with MJ and then "sorry, friendship is all I have to give" at the end?), are movies that I classify as "have to see it for myself no matter what other people say". So what, if it turns out to be really horrible? At least, I can do my own lambasting... [more]

Any person who went to school here in the Philippines must have planted monggo at one time or the other. It's just something that a student here has to do or experience. For one, most kitchens have the beans in stock and for another, the plant grows pretty fast and easy, allowing our teachers to demonstrate whatever principle it is they wanted to teach us. Not that we remembered... [more]

The maternity leave is over. The 78 days zipped by so fast that now I suddenly wonder where they went. [more]
