Heaven just hired one more cook yesterday. Our long-time cook, Virginia, passed away in Aklan at the age of 69. She was diabetic and a really bad leg wound caused her to retire two years ago. [more]

Last weekend, out of the blue (pun intended), Adi asked me this question: "Why did Ateneo win over La Salle?"

My son, apparently, still had a hang-over (tagal na, 'no?) from Ateneo's winning the UAAP. [more]

Don't you just get furious when you buy something and the cashier does not have any change? Or when instead of giving you change, asks you for change (i.e. may limang piso kayo?)? Or when you are given incomplete change and the cashier does not even apologize? Well I do. The lack of change is right up there in my list of pet peeves, together with items listed in the menu but are not available and salespeople who hound you when you know exactly what you want or would like to be left on your own to decide.

So, with all the bombings, are you staying away from crowded places? Are you Pinoy? Then probably you're still making your way to those 3-day sales. We were in Megamall last Saturday to start our Christmas shopping and even after the bus bombing the previous night, the mall was still full. Some parents even had their babies and kids with them.

The following story is a Hasidic Tale, quoted in Peacemaking Day by Day:

An old rabbi once asked his pupils how they could tell when the night had ended and the day had begun.

"Could it be," asked one of the students, "when you can see an animal in the distance and tell whether it's a sheep or a dog?"

"No," answered the rabbi.

Another asked, "Is it when you can look at a tree in the distance and tell whether it's a fig tree or a peach tree?"

"No," answered the rabbi.

"Then when is it?" the pupils demanded.

"It is when you can look on the face of any man or woman and see that it is your sister or brother. Because if you cannot see this, it is still night." [more]

Have not been in the mood to write lately. There are things to write about but I can't seem to get myself to type out all my thoughts. I guess those days really come. [more]

Tomorrow, October 12, our first-born, Adi, turns 6 years old. He's excited about the gifts he'll receive but I try to remind him about the most important gift: the gift of life. [more]

No, this isn't about president GMA's sex life. This is my excuse for not having written anything in the last few days. [more]

Now that the Ateneo-La Salle game is done and Ateneo is the UAAP champion :) we can all get on with our lives. Last week, wherever you turned or looked, someone was talking about the Ateneo-La Salle game. About how hard it was to get tickets. Or whom you think would win. In business lunches. During meetings. Some people have gotten exasperated with all the attention given to the event that they said: "Can we get this game over with so we can get on with our lives?" [more]
