Weight of Words: Words Create Worlds

If words could kill, then I’d long be dead. Words are my love language and one of my self-expressions (poetry, writing, and blogging). Sadly, words tried to put me down several times in the past. Thanks to Weight of Words, I rediscovered how powerful words are, how beautiful they are. And how they should matter,… Continue reading Weight of Words: Words Create Worlds

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… Continue reading Max’s introduces treats to beat the summer heat

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.

Vuelo 2018 Music: Juan 14 (Mary Katherine Trangco)

SOundcheck at Santa maria del pi Barcelona

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… Continue reading Vuelo 2018 Music: Juan 14 (Mary Katherine Trangco)

Express yourself with Novelina Zeelke Cream Hair Color

I am not so much of a fan of colour, but about four years ago, my “virgin” jet black hair was subject to colour… Continue reading Express yourself with Novelina Zeelke Cream Hair Color

Ten years: College Graduation

This year is quite a milestone for me and my husband. To begin, this is the tenth year since we both graduated from the premier State University. Exactly as this post is being done–April 27th. And to celebrate, this photo I had to unearth from an AVP shown during our wedding reception. I was in… Continue reading Ten years: College Graduation

What ‘Progressive’ Means for Britesparks International School

The word “progressive” signifies that something is newer, better adapted to the times than whatever it is being compared against. These days, the idea of sending children to a “progressive school”, understandably, is something some parents might still be hesitant to subscribe to, given that the term might make it sound like some fad method.… Continue reading What ‘Progressive’ Means for Britesparks International School

Taste test your fave resto through Maya Kitchen Top Eats

I am (kinda) back to the blogging grind! It was a busy last quarter of 2016 and beginning of 2017 for me (you know why!), so here I am doing what a dutiful blogger should do–attend events and write about them. So, here goes! — Comfort food.
