5 Tokyo places I missed because of Wolverine

Nostalgia seeped in my consciousness again when I watched The Wolverine over a month ago. Granted I’m not a fan of anime or manga movies, but I watched this one to complement the 2009 X-Men Origins and X-Men: the Last Stand I viewed back then. Thanks to the friend, who invited me. All throughout the… Continue reading 5 Tokyo places I missed because of Wolverine

Juan Ponce Enrile: A Memoir

I could vaguely recall the years when martial law prevailed in the Philippines. I was born in 1980 and the recollection I had of one of the darkest moments in the country’s history was when I was six years old. My mom used to bring me to work in Makati City where we would coincidentally… Continue reading Juan Ponce Enrile: A Memoir

The Day the Circus Came to Town…

I feel fabulous this month. I am thrilled to be able to watch Cirque Du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco”–the much-awaited circus show in Manila. True, I’m not fond of circus shows, but this one’s different.

The month of May was really a very hectic and toxic month for… Continue reading And I’m Glad It’s Over…

Thanks to Mr. Chris Mirang, one formidable hyperrealist painters in the Philippines, whom I had earlier featured here in my blog and at the lifestyle section of the Manila Bulletin.
