Foster Boy

I never really knew what a foster child until I met one.  I first met him when he was around 5 years old.  I didn’t know he was a foster child until I heard from my daughter and a school staff that he was.  I didn’t know that the lady who always brought him to …

Beef Sausage Rolls

It has been a very busy past 2 weeks for me hence I wasn’t able to write at all. Wow, last night I saw in the news Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.  It was a shocker, to say the least.  And I felt a twinge of sadness for her.  My family used to watch Hannah Montana …

My Lola

19 years ago yesterday, my beloved Lola left us.  It was the saddest night of my life. A few hours before she passed, I saw her in the hospital.  I was with my cousins and we have just visited my Lolo who had surgery and we were about to board the elevator on the way …

My Very First Job

I had then just graduated from college and was waiting for the result of the CPA board exam I took.  It was kind of weird not having to wake up early to join the morning rush going to school.  Weird, but also nice in a way. I was just bumming around the house, pretty sure …

Lent to us

For Catholics all over the world, the lenten season is a season of sacrifice.  A lot of people who are of the same faith give up something for at least 40 days as a way of following Jesus Christ’s example. In this day and age, “sacrifices” include not eating meat, giving up coffee (for a …

Happier Year

It hasn’t been easy celebrating the coming of the New Year… Horrible news before the year ended consumed most of the time that should have been left for planning what to do to celebrate.  The shooting of the children in Newtown.  The brutal gang rape and murder of a 23 year old Indian medical student …

Simbang Gabi Down Under

I finally managed to squeeze in some writing! I said writing — the finishing and the publishing, I am not so sure when 🙂 Every year, after Christmas, things seem to slow down.  As in before Christmas came, it was like whoa, it’s coming! It’s coming! Then on the 26th, things go slow mo’.  Sleep …
