On the first of October…

I remember looking at you through the nursery window, overjoyed yet afraid of the overwhelming task of raising another boy in this ever-crazy world. I wondered how I’d want you to be both similar and different to your Kuya Mikku—and you gladly turned out that way.


Idol Tado, di ka namin lubos na nakilala, pero nakapagkwentuhan din tayo konti sa mga RockEd events noon. Bisdak man pud diay ka! =)

Paalam, Kaibigan

Coy, kamusta? Matagal na din tayong di nagkita at nakapagkwentuhan, kaya gulat na gulat kami sa balita. Napa-blog tuloy ako. Bigla tuloy ako napasilip sa computer ko. Di ko sobrang napansin dati, pero isa ka pala sa mga “automatic models” namin mula noon pa. Sa dami ng mga pictures na naka-tambak sa hard drive ko, […]
