May 2018 musings: Yes, mothers know best

ADMIT it, you’ve had your share of mom’s sermons (one is running in your head now and it’s making you smile). I’ve had several—“eat what’s on the table,” “clean the house,” and my favorite, “Bangon dyan, magsisimba tayo ng alas-sais (ng umaga).

This month marks her 17th year in heaven. Having...

A number of developers have stepped in and built their high-rise residences across the...

September 2017 musings: Ease & relaxation

AFTER a marathon of events during the Kadayawan month, September was winding down time. It was started with a trip to Dumaguete where all I did was eat and sleep. No long bus rides, no cave exploration, dolphin watching, sea dipping, just eat and sleep. Back in Davao, attended a few events that revolves around ease and relaxation.   Pampering at the new Elsysia Wellness Spa near you. Who doesn’t want...
