ballot

I lose in every election. Not as a candidate – I have never and will never put myself on the election block – but as a voter.

i love you

“Your eyes like stars, like diamonds in the sky… Your smile so sweet, like candies I can eat.” Hango iyan sa makabagbag-damdaming tula na ipinadala ng isang masugid na manliligaw ng aking pinsan noong sila pa ay high school. Cute, di ba? Romantikong-romantiko ang dating dahil sa kaniyang kainosentehan. “Alam mo, mula nang nakilala kita, nahulog na ang loob ko…Read More »

CHINESE NY PC

Ang aking Lola Crispina (nanay ng tatay ko) ay mestiza Chinese.
