During Holy Week, Bea again had Visita Iglesia in which she visited churches in Bulacan, La Union and Baler. She has been doing this almost every year. She is really devoted to God despite her busy schedule. She serves as a good example to the Youth. Despite her fame now and busy schedule, she always did her best to practice her faith.

Watch her on Carmela which will be broadcast-ed in GMA, April 28, 2014 Monday. She will play the role of Eunice, and will probably be a love triangle with Carmela.

Indie-Pop Geniuses’ Return

cellar door opens


Phoenix | Bankrupt |

The band behind incredible indie pop tracks such as ‘Lisztomania’ and ‘Too Young’ is still standing strong with their fifth album ‘Bankrupt’. The album stuns you with a Chinese – like chime in ‘Entertainment’ that just gets you going and continues going with a chorus that gets you on a high “entertainment, show them what you do to me.”

It progresses with tracks like ‘The Real Thing’, ‘SOS in Bel Air’ and ‘Trying To Be Cool’ that leaves you feeling that you’re tapping your feet to the 80’s beat in Chinatown. And that’s not a bad thing, they’re extremely catchy and exhilirating.

But the thing to hear out here in my opinion is the transition from ‘Drakkar Noir’ to ‘Chloroform’. ‘Drakkar Noir’ sounds like a party anthem with the lead singer enthusiastically going on about a “jangle jungle, jingle jump before you stumble.” The end of…

The Hookup Culture

THE YOUNG INTERNATIONALIST ~ Seeing the World with a Global Perspective

It’s all around us, everywhere we go and in everything we see. TV shows and movies, books and magazines, clothes stores and ads. Sex is being thrown at us from every angle, so much so that we have become desensitized to it.

the hookupIn almost every movie and series, there is a scene where two people meet and the sexual tension is suffocating. They have a few drinks, and then a few more, and eventually they head off to one of their houses to ‘get their freak on’. In the morning, it’s either awkward, or one person left during the night, and that’s the end of it . . . on to the next one. This is the hookup culture that permeates society today, specifically in universities. It is also rampant in high schools.

“Hooking up” has become the norm today. Solid, long lasting relationships are rare to find nowadays. Phrases…

North India Explorer sketchbook.


Our summer holiday came early this year, the unconventional timing determined by the destination. India has been on our wish-list for a long time but unless you have a particular enthusiasm for apocalyptic monsoon rain, then two weeks in August – our usual escape slot – is out of the question.

The trip was another gem organised by tried and trusted adventure tour company Explore, who have yet to disappoint. The North India Explorer involved a very full-on 15-day itinerary starting in the capital Delhi and travelling to Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi and finally ending in Kolkata.

It was a lot to take in; we’ve been back almost a week and my head is still spinning somewhat from the experience. It’s a country like nowhere I’ve been before, throwing up a relentless succession of extreme and unfamiliar images, from the sublime to the downright surreal, with no pause to process…

Part Four (iv of iv): Home

On Loving Lucy



I once asked Oldest what she remembered about the day Lucy was born. She was nine then.

She told me about hitting wiffle balls in the backyard that morning, and she took me through the places that they all went while killing time before getting to the hospital: An antique store in my father’s home town that used to be a movie theatre. His favorite barbeque place for lunch; some sightseeing in the country, I think.

Then she told me about being in the waiting room with everyone and watching my mother peering through the windows of the doorway to the women’s wing, and everyone laughing about that. Occasionally, she would slip past and sneak down the hall for an even closer look. It’s possible my mother would have made a formidable investigative reporter.

Eventually word came that Lucy had been born and there was more smiling, more nervous…
