I just learned from my aunt that a distant female relative had died of breast cancer. I find her death quite tragic and untimely because she was only in her late 30s. From what I gathered, she’d been married but with no children. Actually, her brother was my classmate and buddy from elementary to high school. I immediately sent my condolences to their bereaved family.
If I’m not mistaken, breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women. While fibrosystic breast condition (or the presence of breast lumps and breast pain before and during menstruation) is common among women in their childbearing years, it is still very important that we get rid of this. A breast lump that’s benign at first can eventually develop into a malignant tumor.

No, it’s not mine but I have every reason to be happy about the boyfriend’s recent purchase of a brand new car. It’s a Nissan Sentra, 2008 model. The color is steel gray and I love how it looks cool on the eyes. Yesterday, the boyfriend picked me up in the office using it. We were both ecstatic. We never thought 2011 will be this comfortable and convenient for us, transportation wise.

Of course, the happiness is felt by the two families (his and mine). It’s gonna be our service vehicle because we share things together and we treat each other as family already. Haha. Now I’m wondering what the next step will be. Oooooops, not what most of you might be thinking right now but we’re going to that part in the near future.

I have this undesirable habit of starting things and not getting anything finished. In my native tongue, it’s called ‘ningas kugon.’ Incidentally, this is a common trait among Pinoys which often leads us to mediocrity and failures. This year is the perfect opportunity for change. Change has to come from within oneself and so, I have decided to remove this bad habit from my system by including it in my 2011 goals.
I believe that changes start in small steps. I’ll start with completing 10 DIY projects this year. It could be anything creative such as decorating our house, sewing the holes in my clothes, cleaning my closet and the likes. So long as I get artsy and feel a sense of fulfillment after working on the project, it will be counted.

Oh how time flies! Before I knew it, a month has ended and a new month has arrived. If there’s one thing that could sum up the month of January for me, it has to be food trips! January has been all about eating for this proactive soul.
It all started with the New Year where I cooked several simple but hearty dishes for our Media Noche. I indulged in glorious, fatty food that time. Two weeks later, Superfriend Nice and I got invited to a seafood feast thru Marriott Hotel’s Ocean Surf Buffet. This luxury hotel is housed inside the huge Resorts World Manila Complex in Pasay City (fronting NAIA 3). Once more, I ate to my heart’s content but this time, I feasted on fresh bounties from the sea and a lot more.

If there’s one thing the boyfriend and I have in common, it’s our love for travel. Actually, it’s not just that. We both love to visit new places, try new things and meeting new people. Once he said to me that when we have settled down (ehem), we’ll spend the first two years of our marriage sans kids. Instead of finding me pregnant with our first born and he working his ass off to save money for my delivery, we’ll go to as many places we’d love to visit. I doubt if it’s still gonna be the case by then especially now that our parents are already convincing us to get married soon and produce their first grandchild right after.

I used to love PCH Kristine Series but when the second book had unfolded, my appetite for it diminished. I think it’s because of 1) the disappearing act of the talented Denise Laurel playing Emerald, 2) the addition of too many characters that somehow made the plot complicated and 3) the too many bed scenes shown. I know I’m not the only one who noticed and didn’t give a nod of approval to some or all these things.

With my reception towards PCH Kristine Series reaching an all-time low, another ABS-CBN teleserye has caught my attention. It’s vampire-werewolf themed and has a stellar cast. Two of my favorite local celebrities are in it, Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz. The war between vampires and werewolves may be old but let’s admit it, we continue to find it compelling. This is basically what Imortal, a fantasy series, is playing into. But to make it appealing to the younger generations, they injected a love story ala Romeo and Juliet and a prophecy that could change the lives of the lead characters forever.
