MORE! We don't have enough. We can't be content with enough. Enough is not enough. We need more. Spouses separate. Friendship ends. A child leaves home. Trainees quit. A person takes his life. An employee steals. Lovers elope. A mother curses. Unforgiveness. Enough!!! They need more. More effort to show appreciation. More patience. More understanding. … Continue reading MORE!
NEW TODAY Taking a shower, I felt time paused for a second. I smelled sea. Palawan. Sunset in a kayak with my family. What if we we can go back to a point in time and restart our life from there? Where will you go? Will you relive a moment of victory? Your most fulfilling … Continue reading NEW TODAY (News Ninang?)
Don't Touch! Knowing how infection spreads makes me (and those around me) miserable sometimes. Questions and uncontrolled Sreactions for fear of people close to me getting infection bring misery to the same people I'm concerned about. I mean how many times do I wash my hands when I was a kid? When did I avoid … Continue reading DON’T TOUCH!
The Path of Lesser Resistance (Least Ninang!) Who doesn't want life to be easy? But life wasn't meant to be easy. In fairy tales, in blockbuster movies, in biographies of famous personalities, in the Bible itself, difficulties are essential to life and living well. But people would most often do what is easy. And get … Continue reading The Path of Lesser Resistance (Least Ninang!)

I just attended a world conference showcasing a variety (and multitude!) of topics about diseases affecting the heart of children. From the fetus to the "almost" adult. From genes that can lead to sudden cardiac death to innovative interventions … Continue reading ALL ABOUT little HEARTs
WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO? (Can they find their way home Ninang?) I have never broken up with any guy except my husband.

"I don't know how many times exactly!")...broke up weeks before the wedding, made up … Continue reading WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO? (Can they find their way home Ninang?)

AGAINST ALL ODDS (What are the odds Ninang? 😁) I have always thought the song "Against All Odds" meant fighting for one's love "against all odds". I remembered this song after attending a wedding of a residency mate and friend. The couple had heart-rendering ups and downs, twists and turns, humps and bumps, in their … Continue reading AGAINST ALL ODDS
BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER I have been doing a lot of flocking lately (hmmm.. why doesn't that sound right?). I have been meeting and spending time with different groups of people who were part, and still part, of different times (era Ninang?), and areas of my life. Friends from Highschool, friends and co-workers … Continue reading BIRDS OF A FEATHER
SPATIAL (Siopao Ninang? 😬) As a mother of three daughters who are equally gifted, similar and different at the same time, it is most challenging to make each one feel special. Talking to them at the same time with divided attention definitely cannot achieve that. "Alone" time with each of them is the key (of … Continue reading SPATIAL (Siopao Ninang? 😬)
