A long awaited dinner affair

I have waited 30 years for this to finally taste my first home-cooked by my mom. I usually get funny expressions when I tell my friends that I’ve never tasted my mom’s cooking before.

Iwahig Prison & Penal Farm

“You went to a prison while on holiday?” the expression is one of disbelief tinged with curiosity. Here’s where I chance on the opportunity to tell the story of my visit to the Iwahig Prison & Penal Farm in Puerto Princesa (PP). Evidently prison visits are not top of the list attractions for most destinations, […]

Still alive and kicking (if you were wondering!)

I’ve left this space empty for far too long! So much has taken place I’ve got a backlog of stories to spill and a bag of upcoming projects to unravel. Life has been exciting, revealing and nothing short of a thrilling roller coaster ride. God has been real and He has been good. A sneak […]
