Breaking stereotypes

“At 14, I had my own band and my mom got us our first gig playing an ‘open house’ in one of  the wards at Riverview Mental Hospital where she worked as a dietician. The patients went crazy — actually, I guess they already were crazy, but suffice to say they were really digging my little band. …. That was […]

Si Pacman at ang kanyang cherry-picked moral crusade*

HUMINGI ng tawad ang Pambansang Kamao. Tapos, ipinahanda ang isang long table sa magara niyang mansiyon. Pinatawag ang sanrekwang bading ng pamayanan. Pinakain sila ng isang masaganang hapunan. Ayos ‘di ba? Laitin mo ang mga tao, tapos palamunin mo. Para move on na tayo. One hypocrisy after another. Wala akong problema kay Pacman kung gusto niyang mangaral ng moralidad. Si […]

Scaling Mt. Romelo

Scaling Mt. Romelo

Yes, you read it right. I did say scale because me and my buddies huffed and puffed climbing our way to Mt. Romelo’s peak over the weekend. But we weren’t after the peak, really. We scaled the mountain to see Buruwisan Falls, which is just one of the seven falls hidden in Mt. Romelo. Mt. Romelo, which is quite popular […]

Pag-alaala sa mga paring Gomburza* **

EWAN ko kung bakit walang ginagawang kapansin-pansin na pagpapahalaga ang pamahalaan kina Padre Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos at Jacinto Zamora gayong utang natin sa kanila ang ating kamalayang Filipino ngayon. Hindi dapat nating malimutan na ang kamatayan ng tatlong pari sa pamamagitan ng garote ang gumising at nagpaalab sa diwang makabayan ng ating mga bayani tulad nila Marcelo H. Del […]

Historiko ang paghaharap ni Papa Fracsico at Patriarko Kirill sa Cuba*

SA kabila ng pagiging mayorya ng mga Kristiyano sa ating bansa ay kataka-takang hindi napagtuunan ng pansin ng mainstream media ang balita ng paghaharap ni Papa Franisco at Patriarko Kirill ng Russian Orthodox Church sa Cuba. Ang makasaysayang pagkikita ni Papa Francisco at Patriarko Kirill ay maaring maging daan ng pagkakaisa muli ng simbahang Romano Katoliko at mga simbahang Eastern […]

Agape (God’s love)*

THE United States is an exception when it comes to religiosity. Normally, only citizens of poor countries consider religion important in their lives but this North American nation surprisingly bucks this trend. According to a 2009 Gallup survey, 65 percent of the people here considered religion important in their lives. Nevertheless, despite this surprising find, holy week here is observed […]

Mga tula para sa Araw ng mga Puso*

MALIGAYANG Araw ng mga puso sa inyong lahat! Kanya-kanyang diskarte para mapasaya ang ating mga mahal sa buhay. Siyempre, karaniwan na ang pagbibigay ng mga tsokolate, rosas at card. ‘Yung iba, matagal nang nagpa-reserve ng mesa sa mga paborito nilang restaurant. ‘Yung iba naman, sorpresa ang inihanda. Noong panahon namin, iba ang ibig sabihin ng sorpresa. Biglang liko ‘yun. Ewan […]
