| March 26, 2013

The “Bunny and Pumpkin Ilocos Adventure” covered Laoag, Vigan, Pagudpud, and Paoay; and lasted five wonderful days. We patterned our trip on this blog entry and made the necessary changes according to our needs. Our hotel, Ilocos Rosewell Hotel (thanks to elementary school classmate Lloyd for the recommendation), was in San Nicolas, a stone’s throw away from Laoag [...]

– finishing the second draft! By far the ultimate thank-you I have in the past week was finally being able to send my manuscript to Doc Bau. What the feedback would be is an entirely different matter though. Still, one step closer to finishing the novel and graduating. A close second is: – Christmas dinner [...]

Talk on Global Pinoy Lit

| November 24, 2009

I am so starved of literary conversations and events that when something comes up, I get really, really excited and mark it on my calendar as soon as I hear about it. So excited that at some point I would remind myself not to get my hopes up too high because it might turn out [...]

– Chapter 7! Vacation leave well spent. And then I was supposed to work on Chapter 8 on Saturday but got sidetracked by… – “500 Days of Summer” Finally saw it with Anna. Very nice. I just didn’t like that part when he gave this over-the-top speech before he resigned. But overall, definitely worth watching. [...]

Anne Carson’s Short Talks

| August 2, 2009

Because there are tons and tons to read on the Internet, I usually find it hard to pry myself off its clutches whenever access is free. And although it is completely acceptable in this age to get most if not all of one’s reading materials online, there is also a part of me that feels [...]

I ended up watching “Adventureland” because really, after reading this review, I was pretty much sold. Never mind the stupid title. And I love it! It is sweet and [...]
