When it comes to elections, I’m a loser. Whoever I’m for never wins—whether it’s a presidential election (US or Philippines) or even Miss Universe.
I know my readers’ opinions don’t necessarily reflect the opinions of the masses, so just for fun I’m conducting a poll of who your top 12 senators are. The results may surprise us.
Choose up to 12 names below.
P.S. One of the candidates is my kamag-anak. Can you guess which one?
Thirty years after its very first screening, Himala remains one of the most celebrated Filipino films ever made. Ten years ago, this multi-awarded film was made into a musical called HIMALA: Panibagong Pagtingin sa Mukha ni Elsa.
Now, in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the musical, a special concert entitled Himala, A Celebration of the Musical will be staged at the PETA Theater.
Barrio Cupang was a community craving for a miracle to rescue them from what they believe was a twist of bad karma.
Elsa becomes the miracle they were longing for.
During a solar eclipse, the Virgin Mary appears to Elsa, who Elsa begins to heal the townsfolk. Soon she becomes a national figure whose miraculous power draws the faithful, the curious and the skeptic to this once quiet town.
What happens when people are faced with the miracle they’ve been longing for? How do they react? What will they believe?
Experience a new perspective of Ricky Lee’s story through the music of Vincent de Jesus and the powerful voices of May Bayot, Isay Alvarez and Cynthia Culig-Guico, as they take audiences into a heartwarming and thought-provoking journey into the life of Elsa and Barrio Cupang. Himala, A Celebration of the Musical will be staged at the PETA Theater Center on March 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.

I never thought I’d get fat.
When I got married in 2000, I weighed 95 lbs. During the ’90s When I was studying in New York, my fattest would be 104 lbs, which would make me not eat for a couple of days to go back to 100.
It all changed when I got pregnant in 2001. Nobody told me not to gain more than 23 lbs. So I went up to 143 lbs—not funny, considering the baby weighed less than 7 lbs.
Two weeks after giving birth, I lost 28 lbs. through breastfeeding and actually managed to go down to 106—until 10 months later when I got pregnant with my second baby.
Went back to 143 lbs. and gave birth. Breastfed down to 118 lbs. which I then dieted and exercised down to 106.
Everything changed when I hit 40 years old. It’s been a constant struggle to lose 10 lbs.
Just 10 lbs please dear Lord!!
Do you remember Ina Raymundo who became famous in 1995 for her Sabado Nights TV commercial?
She appears in the end with a young Paolo Abrera who had hair back then.
Ina makes me feel bad when I see her Instagram photos. The masochist in me can’t help but stalk her there.
In 1999, Ina met Canadian-Ukranian businessman Brian Poturnak, whom she married after their first child was born.
They now have five children—the youngest was born only two weeks ago
Here’s the sad part: take a look at Ina five days after giving birth
I read that Ina gains only about 18 lbs while pregnant.
If you do that and breastfeed, you’ll be back to your normal weight after two weeks, or in her case, less!
Ina Raymundo 12 days postpartum. She is now 36 years old.
Serves me right for eating all that junk food—pregnant or not pregnant.
Ina you are killing me!!!!
I get swag all the time—but not everything is useful. Some gifts I get to try only when I discover them again in my pile.
Here’s one thing I’ve been using and I think it’s working.
For one, I feel like my skin got lighter. Not that I wanted to have lighter skin, but some people have been telling me my skin looks better. I’ve heard some people say “payat” and all that, meaning my face looks smaller. I don’t know if they’re pulling my leg or trying to make conversation.
I feel awkward with compliments when I know I haven’t lost weight and people say I look thin.
