Dr. Joven R. Cuanang, newly “liberated” from being medical director of St. Luke’s Medical Center—he retired last December after 10 years on the job—saunters easily through the lobby of St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, like a man with time on his hands.

Soap operation

“GOING BACK TO ROOTS.” Kawayan de Guia’s chair tries to rediscover traditional mountain cures. The carved bulol on the body of the wheelchair absorbs illnesses caused by bad spirits. (Unfortunately, the artist, who is 6 ft tall, has sat on it so you can hardly see the chair.)

Nicole gave me a pieceof coral-colored soap (Dior), in a sculptured container. It smelled good, mmmmmmm. It took months of agony to decide to use such an expensive soap, it seemed just too good for li’l ole me.
