Blog Award

Got this cool award from Rachel. Thanks a lot. Sure is heartwarming to find a friend even though we're thousands of miles apart. Hopefully I can get to meet her in person on my next trip to the Philippines.

What's your name's hidden meaning?

At last!!!!!

Yes! Finally, I'm a proud owner of a signed copy of Papa Carl's ZsaZsa Zaturnnah. It took me a while to get this copy mainly because I now reside in the US and though I would have been able to purchase a copy online, nothing beats having a copy personally signed by the author.

ZsaZsa Zaturnnah was recently given a special mention in Butch Dalisay's Philippine Star column, "Penman" in his "Animating Philippine Literature" (originally published on his blog Pinoy Penman).

The adventure, starting out as a comic book, turned into a musical (that won lots of critical acclaim), and finally into a movie. I've seen the movie, and I now have the book... next stop, to watch the musical, that is, if I'm lucky enough to have it playing when I go back to the Philippines.

Thanks a lot Papa Carl! Especially for my wet kiss, ha ha! Love you lots!
