DUE PROCESS

“Tawagin mo! Tawagin mo! Kanina pa ko nanggigigil dyan!” nagngingitngit na sigaw ng mama ko sa papa ko. “Tinawag ko na,” sagot ni papa. “Anyare?” napahinto ako sa panonood ng rerun ng Grey’s Anatomy sa laptop ko.

Women For Women

So I got harassed in the jeepney today. Peyu (my niece) and I were off to SM Centerpoint this afternoon to watch a movie she’d been insistent in watching earlier this week.

On Being Peymus, Judgments, And The Dying Philippine Literature

It all started with my damned phone. I think I slept on it and the blasted LCD’s now broken. Pissed, I didn’t bother tinkering with it at all on my way to work that Wednesday. What’s even worse was I was sandwiched between two large people inside the UV express; the air conditioning unit’s not … More On Being Peymus, Judgments, And The Dying Philippine Literature
