Now that Rockwell has unveiled its high-end residential property in Cebu last Thursday, it should be interesting to see if the affluent but very cost-conscious Cebuano is finally ready to embrace condo living—stylish but condo space nonetheless.

Supertyphoon “Yolanda” showed the best and the worst of social media. In the immediate aftermath, at least, there was none of the irreverent humor that Filipinos are known for, we who make fun of anything and anyone, even and especially our own misfortune.

By

Old habits don’t stop. Once in a while, I still catch myself asking, what would Mommy say, she might not approve—only to remind myself in mid-thought that Mommy had died early this year, that her okay or non-okay would not be forthcoming, ever.
