    by racosta on January 16, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Dr. Raquel Del Rosario-Fortun has been the most wanted woman in the Philippines—for the past couple of weeks, at least. Not because she committed a crime, no, but because of her forensic expertise. When it became clear that the police were bungling the investigation of flight attendant Christine Dacera’s death (Declaring a rape-slay before actually having evidence? Announcing the case solved prematurely? And, Christ Almighty, embalming the body before the autopsy?), many Filipinos had the […]

  • Why you should be reading ‘Tarantadong Kalbo’
    by racosta on January 16, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    “Tarantadong Kalbo” is both an extremely accurate and extremely deceptive description for Kevin Eric Raymundo’s cartoon strip. On one hand, it features a protagonist who is bald, a bit of a wiseacre and is drawn in a simple, somewhat silly style that makes you expect that it’s just nonsensical humor. But then it gets pretty dark, heartbreaking and tender. There’s religion. There’s profanity. There’s social commentary above all else. All this makes it the best strip to emerge from […]

    The former prime minister of Japan Junichiro Koizumi was all the rage when I was in high school. That was a special time when the bookstore’s magazines section was a hallowed place. That’s where the action was. I remember seeing Koizumi on the cover of Time and thinking, wow, that hair looks cool.

  • Healthy granola for postholiday eating
    by clopez on January 16, 2021 at 6:25 am

      Now that the Christmas season is over, it’s time to start eating healthy again. While the holidays may have justified feasting on ham, queso de bola, lechon, turkey and the like, this kind of diet isn’t ideal if one wants to be healthy. Salty food such as cheeses and ham, for example, tends to raise one’s blood pressure. With this in mind, I thought of making a healthy breakfast cereal that’s also tasty and delicious—and came up with granola. The post Healthy granola for […]

We call it the mole hill-mountain syndrome because of the patient’s propensity to magnify small problems into major health issues because of their stress, fear or anxiety. And […]
