The 90/10 Principle

Yesterday, I went to an Oriented Happy Hour again and had the chance to rub elbows with the ABCs and expat community of Taiwan. It was held at Que Pasa, and the place was just brimming with people! “My gosh, it’s so hot in here!” exclaims my boyfriend, lamenting the lack of AC in the […]

“Saved!”

Just finished watching, “Saved!” the other day and it was a pretty cool movie. It reminded me of the time when I used to go to church regularly — and why I stopped going a year after I arrived in Taiwan. Don’t get me wrong, and don’t tell me I’d go to hell because I […]

Spark — Justified or Overrated?

Why are we so much a martyr and allow ourselves to be tortured by some impending doom? I know what will happen and still, strap myself tight and go for the ride. I know I’ll get hurt sometime in the future, and yet, with two eyes open, I decide to still go through it. How […]

Still hurting but alive…

I’m still hurting, but I feel a lot better today. I guess, spending some quality time with your boyfriend does help a bit and an hour or so with a good friend will definitely cheer you up. To respect the privacy of people involved, I’m still mum on what happened, and thanks for not asking. […]

Please respect my privacy

I had an interesting and painful weekend. I don’t want to talk about it. After talking about my problems whenever they pop up with everyone I know (I’m a Libran, remember?), for the first time in my life, I think I should deal this on my own… Some things should never be spread out to […]

Part II: Glimpses of my Auntie Anita

My Auntie Anita has already passed away. She was buried two to three days after, leaving a couple of apartments that was her source of income over the years, and two children. Sadly, none of her children even flew back to the Philippines to show up for the funeral. And no, I didn’t even shed […]

The Tucker Max blog

Here’s a blog entry I wrote way back in September 2004 (one of my firsts!)! Kindly see if there’s any difference between my writing style then and now! šŸ™‚ My gosh, it’s nice to look at your old entries. Oh, and warning, crude entry coming up… read at your own risk! Before, I’ve used to […]

Don’t ask — Don’t get

A lot of women are very funny. No wonder guys find it difficult to understand us. For them, they usually say what they mean. Plus, their needs are pretty simple — food, sex and sleep. Not usually in that order, of course. But women, we want them to care for us, cuddle us, pamper us, […]

Funny — I Love Beans

*I found this joke to be hiliarious! So funny that I couldn’t help but reposting it on my blog. Enjoy! šŸ˜€ Once upon a time, there lived a man who had a terrible passion for baked beans. He loved them, but they always had an embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction on him. One day, he […]

How would yours read?

My epitaph would be: “Through laughs and tears, she loved and lived life the best way she can, given the time and opportunities given her. She gave it her all. She was a great daughter, a good sister, a loving mate, and a noble person of society. And she hopes, till the time she passed […]

My love affair with writing

One of my earlier blog entries, written in September 2004! My gosh, how time flies! The best story I’ve ever written When I was young, I would write down short stories in notebooks I’ve long since forgotten or lost. I remember a horror story that I wrote that was just 2-pages long. It was about […]
