I may not have all the answers, however, I should like to do my best to write this one as inspiring as possible. You may be wondering why I am writing in letter form.

We all have a lot of questions. Everyone. Not even one single person on this planet is spared.

I know...

There was a news report from years back that a Philippine fishing vessel was in peril out in International waters. Who helped the Filipinos?

Well, providentially, there were Vietnamese sailors who took them under their wings and brought them back safely to shore in the...

It is a good facility. The whole surroundings are dotted with greeneries. And, it is clean almost sterile to a point. I would say it is better than some Government Facilities. Most importantly, the patients both adults and children are well looked after by the medical...

Never give up chasing your dreams foolish as they may seem. You have already gone this far. And, you are still alive. Life is fleeting and we can never be sure what the future will be like for us. Remember that your own late father and mother were writers. A columnist...

Being all grown up the meaning of Christmas for me has changed. Why? Because people change and particularly my family has changed. My family became aplenty. Whimsical wishes abound, following trends and the modern times. Shiny new things from hi-tech gadgets to everyth...

French people are one of the nicest people I have ever met in my entire life. I remember queuing at the luggage check-in section of the Legazpi airport. The Caucasian man in front of me had a Canadian flag sticker on his suitcase and I double checked if indeed he was f...

I belong to a small fraternity, a band of brothers, and a fellowship of blood brothers. Our tallest member is six feet three inches and the least tall is five feet and seven inches. We all look alike. We are often called the Carpio Brothers. 

We have our own frat words...

How does it feel like to be a part of a relatively big family? I was born penultimately hence the past stories had been told by people who witnessed themselves how it was like to see for themselves a family of sixteen with one set of parents. 

We occupied two pews when...

He is the one who takes care of me. He would always say that he is the wind beneath my wings. He is even proud of me. The artist that I am, I would have days that I just want to vanish into thin air.

One day I told him I wanted to become a hermit. Then I was encouraged...

Perhaps one day all your dreams came true. Or maybe not. It is pathetic. Your entire world crumbling down. Certainly, we do not want that to happen. No wonder most movies now are all about superheroes. I observed that is the reality now or should I put it this way the...

Be prepared. I was not at all. My walking in the City has become a comedy in all its grandeur. I thought nobody actually notices me when I walk for exercise. Then, my older brother keeps telling me somebody saw you walking again. And they are concerned. He would explai...

Let us begin with a story from the Bible shall we? Well, to put it bluntly Lord Jesus was deserted and denied by his chosen few disciples during the times that He faced the last chapter of His Life. Now, that makes you realize how extremely difficult it is to find genu...

There are moments that the words escape my mind. Times when I feel hatred for this writer. He can write in a matter of minutes. He could be eloquent if he wanted to and his written words could really resonate within the depths of one’s soul. I hate him because he does...
