When the best way to go to Baguio was by train


By

It will soon be Holy Week. The heat in Manila has people thinking of an escape to cooler climes. I wonder who will brave the traffic and trek up to Baguio. It is crazy to be on the road on that last week of Lent. Friends of mine tried it last year, and it took almost 10 hours to get to Kennon.

It’s good to be home. My flight from Brisbane via Darwin was smooth and comfy. Our PAL Airbus 320 looked brand new and everything on board worked!

‘Last year I was a boy. Today I am a man’


By

Today, I take a PAL flight back to Manila from Brisbane, with a stopover in Darwin. I think I have made it quite public that I don’t like flying. I am one with those who believe that if God had intended for us to fly, He would have given us wings.

When children ‘freeze out’ their parents

By

It is Autumn Down Under. I arrived in Sydney on the last few days of summer and we had blue skies and cool breezes. But the weekend turned from nice to nasty. From comfortable mid-70s we dropped to unseasonal 50s and 60s, making us reach for sweaters and shawls. Monday the sun was out. But the rains have returned and now we’re back to dreary.

What you see is what you get


By

One of the joys of writing a column is getting feedback from readers. I am grateful to those who take the time to comment. Good, bad or indifferent, it is proof that someone out there reads my thoughts, and it feels good. Thank you all.

Infidelity is a sure-fire relationship breaker


By

Over the years I have received calls from friends (more women than men) who needed a shoulder to cry on, some just aching to vent. As if I had no troubles of my own. One young woman said, “Your experience in these matters will help me.” Huh? Who died and made me Dear Abby?

‘Love isn’t an act, it’s a whole life’

I am still on a “homecoming high.” I am likely to go on and on about how much fun it was and how good it felt, and I will probably bore you to tears.

Precious lessons from the war


By

Before anything else—it is homecoming day at the College of the Holy Spirit. We opened the centenary with a bang early last year. It was colorful, boisterous and nostalgic. I expect it will be that way again today as we close. I just know it will be a grand celebration.
