Writing Challenge: Moments

We all have significant moments in our lives that we couldn’t (although sometimes we wish we could) forget. Moment #1 As I opened the classroom door, there was this unusual silence. The floor was almost red with petals of roses. I walked towards my table where a bouquet of red flowers greeted me. I was…

Writing Challenge: Why Do I Write?

When your heart is full of love, full of hurt, full of hate and you can’t express it for whatever reasons, the best way to let it out is through writing. This is what writing is for me when I was starting to write back then. I do not consider myself a creative writer. I…

Vegetarian Treat at Corner Tree Cafe

After my daughter’s workshop in Makati, we got hungry so we decided to look for a restaurant to dine in. My Trip Advisor app came very handy in giving us the nearest restaurants, including the rating of the customers who went there. Since it was my husband’s post birthday treat, I asked him if he’d…

Writing challenge: What BFFs teach us

In my younger years, we call it simply “best friend”. Nowadays, it is called “Best Friends Forever“. Years from now, there might be a different term to describe the closest friend or group of people to our hearts. BFFs teach us so many things. Here is what I can attest to. We learned fashion and…
