I adore children, especially when they’re tiny and don’t answer back.
A guest on BBC World was being interviewed about the South Korea impeachment via FaceTime when his little girl walks in.
He tries to push her away, but watch what happens when the cutest little baby rolls in in a walker.
It is so adorable.

How to tell if your patient will die
Posted on

I just visited my last grandmother in the hospital.
Like me, she didn’t eat vegetables and drank Coke until 2015. She is 93 years old.
Last March 4 at 4 AM, she went into cardiac arrest. It was a First Saturday.
No family was around to give consent, so the hospital staff automatically resuscitated her.
She is now brain dead.
As a devotee of Our Lady, I know she would have liked to have passed on a First Saturday, as I would too.
I’m glad I was able to hold her hand, kiss her head, and thank her.
It won’t be long now….

Many years ago I found this video which might be helpful to those watching over a loved one in the hospital.
I think it’s good to know when it’s time to call family and friends to come over and say goodbye.
I’m reposting this for my cousin Jay who is watching over Lola Liddy at the hospital.
This video will give you a clue if your patient is about to die.

Be very still

Warren Buffet said, “The trick is, when there is nothing to do, do nothing.”
Today, I choose to do nothing. I have cancelled my appointments.
I have taken my shower and blowdried my hair because if I don’t, I will look like Medusa.
I’ll be in pajamas all day. I’ll be sitting in my office, waiting for my Lenten meal of ebi tempura and rice. A friend is coming to visit me.
Nurse Wanda will come tonight for my enema.
I will be very still today.

Because the Bible says, “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Therefore, I need not struggle today.

Reposting this for anyone who’s looking for a place to stay near Shangri-La Hotel, but cheaper!
We have a 38-square-meter studio at St. Francis Condominium at Shangri-La Place.


I personally designed the interiors with the help of Kellyn and Rex Gapuz.
When you enter, you’ll find the kitchenette which has small appliances—sorry no cooking because we want to avoid odors and critters.


Feel free to hang your clothes inside the closet.


This is the work area, with swivel chair from West Elm. We have free wifi and cable TV plus DVD player if you’re into that 🙂


The two single beds are separate to make the studio more spacious, but you can put them together if you want to sleep side by side.


This studio sleeps up to three people. The couch is long enough to fully recline on. Just request extra pillows and blanket 🙂


The bathroom—though tiny—is chuva-approved. Check out Philippe Starck x Duravit toilet.
We redid it three times until I was satisfied. Wish it were bigger though….


It was basically designed as a hotel room without the room service—but you can order McDo or pizza. What’s a hotel stay without CNN?


Oh, but the condo is attached to the Shangri-La Plaza, which has so many food choices.
We require a minimum stay of two nights. Please recommend to your friends and family.
