Max’s introduces treats to beat the summer heat

I believe I have a lifelong affair with Max’s. Okay, that might not sound right, but am sure you know which Max I am talking about–the restaurant, of course. And indeed I have. From my parents’ wedding reception, the studio recital of my voice and piano students, my daughter’s baptism, reunions, meetings, or any time […]

Touringkitty Travels: Dating, European-style

We sang, we traveled, we ate. This is how we conquered Europe for the first time as husband and wife. We got to do it for almost a month. And even if we were traveling with a group, we cannot miss the chance to go out on a just-us date. So, on that one free […]

Buy a ticket, help reach our target!

The Shrine of Jesus has been more than a church for us, it’s our second home. There, we have built our first family, even before marriage. My husband and I formed a children’s choir in 2006 from among its churchgoers and relatives of other volunteers. We have taken part in so many Holy Masses, liturgical […]

Vuelo 2018 Music: Juan 14 (Mary Katherine Trangco)

Programming music. One of the most difficult yet the most basic block in any choral group. As a chorister, I get excited with what’s going to be the repertoire for a certain concert I sing in or watch. Always interesting to know the hows and why of putting a set of songs together. For the […]

Express yourself with Novelina Zeelke Cream Hair Color

Jet black hair. That has been our hair colour since birth. But with ever changing world, plus the inevitable grey strands, one has to keep up with having their hair coloured. I am not so much of a fan of colour, but about four years ago, my “virgin” jet black hair was subject to colour […]

Schatzinfinity: Ten years of marriage

#blessed is never cliche If I were to sum up the past ten years of being married to the love of my life, only one word comes to mind: GRATEFUL. That my husband and I are stronger together, and we’ve proven it to each other and to other people many times already. That we have […]

A foundation that supports breastfeeding

While formula and follow-on milk formula are enjoying the limelight in the marketing scene, it’s always nice to know that there are still institutions who dared take that road less traveled and support only the best–breastfeeding. I got a chance to attend a forum on the Mother-Baby Friendly Philippines program of the World Vision and […]
