The Last days of Pope John Paul II
Posted on

Tomorrow, April 2nd, marks the 8th death anniversary of Pope John Paul II.
I wrote such a brief entry about the event, even though it affected me profoundly during that time.
Last night I stayed up late watching this CNN documentary on the weeks leading to his death in 2005.
Finally it made me understand why the Pope chose to stay in position while physically suffering and deteriorating before our very eyes.
The documentary reminded me how blessed I am to have known him as Pope for 26 years, and helped me appreciate the subsequent election of Pope Benedict XV.

How to scramble an egg inside its shell
Posted on

Happy Easter!
I know it’s a strange greeting. I find it weird whenever people say that, but I just heard the Pope say it on TV, so it must be a legit greeting.
Speaking of Easter, my husband found this cute video on how to make a scrambled egg inside its shell. He finds the weirdest things online. Enjoy!

Just say no
Posted on

I don’t understand why Sarah Geronimo has to wear a bad wig in her movies with John Lloyd Cruz.
She’s a pretty girl with nice hair. Can’t they just dye it or curl it, if they wanted to make her look “Americanized”?
Why resort to bad wigs?
Just say no, Sarah G.
Surely when they make you wear a bad wig there’s a this little voice telling you this looks wrong. But maybe you’re too nice to complain. Someone has to say it.
If you’re not sure about what the director is telling you to wear, consult a stylist.
Consult Liz Uy, Millet Arzaga, Alodia Gosiengfiao, or something. Consult a woman.
If they wanted to hire someone who looks like Eugene Domingo, they should’ve hired Eugene Domingo.
I enjoyed your movie with JLC, A Very Special Love but this one, I’m just gonna say no.
P.S. John Lloyd can also say no. He can say, “I’m not gonna kiss that bad wig. Nope. Not doing it.”
