Dakak in Davao?

Dakak in Davao?

In several conversations with friends in the past, I’ve remarked that Filipinos generally have a tendency to be poor in geography. Case in point: the only geography lesson I remember ever taking was in 2nd Grade. And now here’s photographic proof! My brother took these photos at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport II.

The crutch of intelligence

The crutch of intelligence

Recently I was engaged in an online exchange of ideas regarding atheism. I’d met Benj of Atheista.net at a bloggers’ get-together in Manila last week, and checking his blog last night, I was regaled by a lengthy treatise on intelligence and belief systems. I respect Benj and I wouldn’t insult his intelligence by engaging him [...]

Living beside school

I live in a compound that sits right beside the Ateneo de Davao High School campus. I’m up early for my flight to Manila — actually, I’ve been up for an hour already.

Christmas break

Christmas break

Had a wonderful night-out with a close friend of mine last night. Pam’s been in Cagayan de Oro all these years, so we rarely see each other anymore. So we made sure to spend some quality time together yesterday. We met up at my favorite coffee shop, Basti’s, then proceeded to Nezz74 Café for dinner. [...]

Rainy Monday

Grrrr!!! I was supposed to go to NCCC Mall this afternoon and show off my red WordPress t-shirt, but the rain decided to show me off. And it’s so rare for me to even think of going to NCCC — I go to Victoria Plaza most times (because Basti’s Brew is there). Mondays are depressing [...]

The Christmas season is again nearly upon us. For those who are no longer at the receiving end but are in fact at the giving end of Christmas gifts, it’s a yearly struggle to think of that adorable gift for family, friends and colleagues. A friend of mine, Aloysius, has a great set of gift [...]
