The futility of Panelo's Commute Challenge

Posted on December 15, 2019

I spend over forty-five minutes to one hour a day commuting to and from Colegio de San Juan de Letran - Manila for one year, two months and counting. I do not own a car nor my family does, and I have a deep-seated and irrational fear of riding in an LRT station, as they say, is the fastest way of transportation but due to its flawed system, I would rather build my flying boat.

“How are we going to bring OPM on to the international scale if our own country is not playing their own music? When we’re idolizing other people’s music?

Is Taho Not for Everybody?

Posted on March 11, 2019

If there is one thing I love about waking up before 10AM, it’s the sound of our friendly-neighborhood taho vendors breaking the quiet solitude that early mornings offer. It brings an immediate smile on my face, making me rush downstairs with a few coins and my mug in tow, a jolly greeting reserved for the people who make the effort to make the soybean curd drink or taho for Filipinos.

The Looking Glass

Posted on March 05, 2019

A mirror shows you what you look like, it has a way of showing us our flaws. However, sometimes we only intend to see what we want to see. Sometimes, our reflection focuses only on ourselves but not the bigger picture that we belong into.
