A Final Talk Between Mothers

Ladies and gentlemen, I knew this took quite a while, but this is the final part of my “Talk Between Mothers” trilogy. We’ve heard Mother Russia speak her mind in broken English and then there was Mother South Korea’s story. Now it’s time to listen to the story of another mother making her way in […]

Happy and independent, is the Filipino?

How timely! A triumphant Fil-Am donning the PH flag-at-war during the 28th SEA Games in Singapore! Whoever stitched that on, must have been inspired by the honest mistake of the website of the Office of the President’s in May 2011! Ah this “wardrobe malfunction” just makes me go on a throwback on a May 2011 […]

It won’t be much of a Mother’s day for Mary Jane, Celia and PH

There was an outpour of sympathy from Indonesians and Filipinos for Mary Jane Veloso, days before she had to face her death sentence by firing squad in Indonesia. Mary Jane is a Filipina MOTHER who has been declaring her innocence over a conviction for drug trafficking since Day 1 of her 5-year ordeal. The hashtags: […]

The burden of a historical baggage

November 23, 2009 was the day 58 lives were massacred in Maguindanao when an election convoy came under attack by uniformed men allegedly under the payroll of a powerful Ampatuan political clan. Eight years later, carnage once again stained the history of Maguindanao as more than 40 elite policemen of the Special Action Force (SAF) […]

Another Dialogue Between Mothers

Okay, here’s a sequel (of sorts) to my other article A Talk Between Mothers which is, in turn, inspired by the articles Minsan May Isang Puta and Putak Ng Anak Ng Puta by Mike Portes. Again, I would like to state that “Minsan May Isang Puta” and “Ang Putak Ng Anak Ng Puta” both belong to […]

A Talk Between Mothers

I have only recently read Mike Portes’ Minsan May Isang Puta and its sequel article Ang Putak Ng Anak Ng Puta and was thoroughly moved by their realistic takes on Filipino life and mentality. Mike Portes is certainly a master at what he does and I was quite impressed with the fact that his work was immediately […]

The call of Pope Francis turned to cash.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Argentine Jesuit of Italian bloodline, assumed the Papacy as Pope Francis on March 13, 2013 and it has never been the same for the Catholic faith as the refreshing messages on unity, humility and respect transcends religious boundaries. The large crowd which the Pope drew from predominantly Buddhist Sri Lanka (nbcnews.com) is evidence of […]

“PH Society, be my bitch!” says They!

If my eyes can taste, these images leave with me a flavor that’s one for an up chuck! Both bilious are  Stylebible.ph‘s photo of the S & M tinged number taken at a sexually amped-up “fashion” show of a leading garment brand and the viral shirt photo posted by a writer as it was being […]
