Beers All Around!

In Seattle, Washington, two friends are now the proud parents of an 8 lb., 11 oz. baby boy. In Barangka, Marikina, a boardmate just passed the UP Law Aptitude Examination.

One Touch Easy

Globe Telecom subscribers can now donate money via SMS for the Philippine National Red Cross' operations in Southern Leyte. There's no way to know if the contributions will indeed go to that purpose, but I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. My donation wasn't that big, anyway.

This Is Where The Magic Happens

Whoa, the Hotel Sogo along Aurora Boulevard in Cubao has theme rooms! It has a Card Room (playing cards are painted on the walls), an Under the Sea Room (painted with deep-sea scenes), and a Ship Room (painted to look like boat cabin, complete with portholes). Best and/or worst of all, there's a Mickey Mouse Room. One guess whose mug adorns the walls.

I don't know about others, but getting it on in a room full of Mickey Mouses, er, Mickey Mice is just wrong. But I won't knock it 'til I've tried it.


Red Bull beat Purefoods last night and won the PBA Fiesta Conference crown in Game 6 of the best-of-seven Finals. Former Ateneo Blue Eagles Enrico Villanueva, Larry Fonacier, and Paolo Bugia now have a PBA championship to their name. Too bad Rich Alvarez and Wesley Gonzales, key players during Ateneo's UAAP championship run in 2002—the year of Red Bull's last title—play for other PBA teams.

Okay, Okay, I Get It Already

An officemate gave me a rosary last week. And because I admitted I wasn't familiar with the new "Mysteries of Light," the day after Valentine's she gave me a pamphlet on praying the rosary. Then yesterday, she gave me an "Our Daily Bread" devotional. Wow.

Ika-Siyam

Napagtanto ko nang hindi pala ako adopted-putok-sa-buho-singaw-ng-lupa-napulot-sa-basurahan tulad ng dating suspetsa ko. Marka kasi ng angkan ng erpats ko ang pagkakaroon ng nunal sa mukha. 'Yung mga tito ko meron, 'yung mga pinsan ko meron, 'yung mga utol ko meron. Kanina habang nasa dyip ako eh napatingin ako sa side mirror. Aba, may nunal din pala ako sa mukha! Hindi siya buhay na nunal pero nandoon siya, nasa may parteng kaliwa ng baba ko. Nalaman na tuloy ng lahat na hindi ako marunong manalamin.
