Memory of a First Kiss

Hunyo 27, 2007
I worked as an editor of Tagalog romance novels before. In one of the manuscripts I edited, I was so turned-off with how the writer described the kiss shared by the story's protagonists. The description was so bland, almost without feelings. Out of frustration, I wrote this piece. ;)

My feet grew wings the moment
          your lips touched mine
I closed my eyes tightly as my heart
          started beating rapidly
Incomparable,
          a first kiss is
Like being thrown into the vast universe,
          floating in Milky Way—
Stardust around you and me
          —our galaxy
Like fireworks ablaze against the dark sky
          on New Year’s eve—exhilarating!
Unforgettable,
            a first kiss is…

Caleruega (Philippines) Weekend

Hunyo 7, 2007

If you want to spend some quiet moments, refresh your mind, feel close to nature and God, Caleruega is the perfect place to go; located in Brgy. Kaylayaw, Batulao, Nasugbu Batangas. As described in the flyer given to visitors at the gate, Caleruga is a house (place) of prayer and renewal. It is equipped with facilities for activities like retreats, recollections, prayer and renewal workshops, and other religious and environmental-related assemblies. But you can also go for a day’s visit. Like what I did last weekend. For 30 pesos entrance fee, you can enjoy the breathtaking views, clear your mind and find peace.
