Being Asian has its perks. For one, you can speak another language aside from English. That makes you multi-lingual! You also enjoy the best of both worlds in terms of food. Take for example having kare-kare and bagoong for lunch and a quarter pounder with cheese, large fries and coke for dinner. In movies, you also get to enjoy the latest flick by Sharon Cuneta as well as this summer's Hollywood fare. Music, Literature, even gossip! It would be boring talking about David and Victoria Beckham all the time! So despite the poverty-stricken, highly polluted and waaaay over-populated country that I belong to that's almost in the dumpster what from the recent politicking...there are certainly some positive aspects to being an Asian and a Filipino at that. Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

Long Time, No Blog!

I've been swamped with work! I haven't had time to blog. I'm still alive so it is then a fallacy that no blogging is equitable to a sure, slow death. However, I have been dying a little each time I miss to express my mediocre thoughts in this e-diary or sorts. What bothers me really is the fact that I have somewhat become addicted to this site that like my usual cup of coffee in the morning, posting a blog is a part of my daily routine. And therefore, not having to do it means a disruption of that routine. It's like missing to take a bath or not brushing your teeth or being unable to do your daily "business". The question now is whether this habit is good or bad. Whether it is healthy or beneficial to me as a being. For that, I will have to keep on blogging to investigate long-term effects!

Mother's Day

The UK and most of Pan-Asian/Arabian peninsula celebrate it in March. North America and it's peripheries, including the 1,707 islands of the Philippine archipelago celebrate it in May.

Motherhood has indeed changed me into a more caring individual. I celebrate it everyday as I experience my daughter's growth and changes. Each mother has her own personal experience in being a mom. But as sisters we share a bond not only in the scars of pregnancy and giving birth, more in the dream of great things for our offspring.
