The Bourne Identity is in. The Blogger is Out.

Wow... the first week of the New Year 2012 is over!  Why everything seems to be going past forward?

I am counting the passing of the month by marking what was my activity during the weekends so as far as I can remember I was watching the Azkals Sendong Charity Game Dili Kamo Nag-iisa during the first Saturday of January, and I am sure that it was just few days after the holiday specifically considering how the Azkals team (Azkals Alyansa) played against CF Internacional de Madrid.  They seem to haven't shaken off their holiday blues.  After the game, I was confuse on whose team has celebrity players?  Aside from the obvious fact that CF Madrid’s team are excellent football players, they won the hearts of the football fans with their charm.  They patiently rounded the whole stadium waving, talking and communicating with the fans with their sincere smiles plastered on their oh soo good looking faces :)

Anyways back to that Saturday, before I knew it I found myself caught up on a Monday traffic catching a flight for an out of schedule / out of town trip. While the procession of the Black Nazarene is not moving somewhere along it’s processional direction, I am trapped and not moving as well in the EDSA traffic on my way to the airport.  As the devotees pray for miracle from the Black Nazarene, I had my miracle freeing from that horrendous EDSA traffic and able to catch my flight.

The Black Nazarene procession I found out from the news later, took 22 hours to finish and it is said to be the longest procession ever in the history of this annual tradition.


So I’m outta town!
100_9232As I was enjoying my “buko halo halo” so far away from Manila, I learned from the news that the The Bourne Identity cast has started shooting in Manila! Oh no! A little birdie told me that shooting will start by mid-January not now!  I want to personally watch that movie shooting and blog about it. It’s on my list!

The cast who’s now in the Philippines are movie leads Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.  There’s also a rumor that Rachel Weisz James Bond husband Daniel Craig will also be coming over to visit his wife.

David Archuleta is coming in also while the Scottish pop group Simple Minds is done with their concert.

Geez they’re flocking in while the blogger is out! Sad smile

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
