      People who hear me say I didn’t know I had straight hair until I got to high school think I’m joking, or exaggerating. I am not—joking or exaggerating. I have childhood photos as proof.

      There is usually a big connection between what’s on our head and what’s going on in our lives. Our hair often reflects our emotions, and drastic haircuts, particularly for women, are nothing new. Several movies have also shown the emotional experiences of women who have gone through breakup and divorce and proceeded to hack off some or cut all of their hair. One can only wonder what was going on in Princess Charlene of Monaco’s head when she suddenly The post Why suddenly changing […]

      I was born and raised in Ndola, Zambia, Central Africa, by my mother, who was an excellent Indian chef. She taught me her most difficult dishes, all-time favorites, vegan/nonvegan samosas. Growing up with this daily repetition of making chapatis and samosas along with other Indian delicacies, I mastered those skills very well. When I was 20, my parents got me married to an Indian businessman here in Manila. We were blessed with five children. Then came an opening in The post Samosas are my […]

      Since COVID has made air travel constricting, many Filipinos have resorted to road trips to relieve anxiety from being cooped up in their own homes.

  • Why do Filipinos eat processed fish, not fresh, during Lent?
    by clopez on February 25, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Growing up with Lola, there was really nothing special I remember of her Holy Week menus. What I remember were the negative musts. No eating meat. No noise. No taking a bath on Good Friday. No swimming on Good Friday or the siokoy (merman) will drown you. Listen to the Good Friday Seven Last Words. Seafood was present every day on our table. So abstinence really wasn’t a sacrifice.

    by Jed Gregorio on February 24, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Joan Didion is often quoted as having said that she writes to understand what she’s thinking about. I have often wondered how much of that statement is an appeal to romance, or an appeal to practicality. Is writing itself a love affair, perhaps with an amorphous phantom entity, with which one’s involvement is a kind of lived, evolving mirroring of selfhoods and values and so on, the same way people would talk about relationships as a “growing together”.

Over a million people marched on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, otherwise known as Edsa, to demonstrate solidarity, resistance and determination. Yellow banners were unfurled on the roads, with images ranging from Ninoy Aquino to the symbolic yellow ribbon. The surrounding environment was gripping; the Filipinos were too enthusiastic to notice the packed roads that gave off an aroma of sweat. Many held up the hand The […]
