Democratic Participation and the Social News Media

Everyone can be connected through emails, social networking sites and blogs. Anyone could, if they wanted, post their thoughts and ideas online for everyone to see and read. In exchange, everyone could also comment and respond to these posts and create a discussion...
Don't Judge Me By My Facebook Profile
I have always been cautious about posting information about myself online. I am aware that there are things you post in cyberspace that are somewhat permanent. With these things, it might bring stories from your past and it might take a lot of time and effort to them. Nevertheless, I have been an active online user of various networking sites to get in touch with my friends, especially those I...
Mr. Yunioshi and Racism
There was this character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s that received a lot of criticisms, it was the portrayal of Mr. Yunioshi. Mr. Yunioshi is the discontented neighbor of Holly Golightly. He would always be seen as someone continuously reprimanding her for her noises, strange and unnerving behaviors. He was supposed to be a comical relief, however the Asian-American viewers think otherwise. The...
You Can Pick Your Nose While Reading This
In the Filipino context, a middleman is always needed in a lot of situations. Whether if it’s for awkward social situations or even in a business setting, there would always be that trusty and reliable middleman or third-party agent. Years back, there were stories about my older friends getting love letters and gifts from their admirers through middlemen, or wing men as how they are now popularly...
We prayed before meals now we take pictures.
When my family had dinner at a restaurant, my brother put out his camera and took a picture of every food that the waiter brought in to our table. We cannot eat unless he has taken a good shot out of it. My dad then joked, “Before we do not eat unless we prayed, now we cannot eat unless Kuya has taken a picture of our food.” This is in reference to the growing popularity of Instagram...

Maybe In Another Universe, I Deserve You
What if, in another universe, I deserve you? Hear me out. There’s this philosopher from the 1890s named William James, and he coined this theory about “the multiverse” which suggests that a hypothetical set of multiple universes comprises everything that can possibly exist simultaneously. Are you following? The entirety of space, time, matter and energy is all happening at once in different...
The reason why I feel so groggy today was because I stayed up all night just to bake this cake. I did plan to bake it today but I just played safe and baked it last night after doing my school works. I didnt want to cram and I didnt feel confident that I would be able to bake and decorate the cake in less than 3 hours. :)) Then today, I made the icing right after I arrived at home from school...
Daddy's Birthday Dinner Buffet
What supposed to be a dinner for six turned out to be a dinner fit for a whole barangay! I must honestly say that we cooked to much food. But we just can’t help it since this household loves to cook! It’s some sort of a vice that my mom and I have whenever we invite people over for some meal. Pancit! Eating pancit or any kind of noodles for long life has always been a protocol...
Banana Yeast Bread
Banana Yeast Bread is simply bread with a hint of banana. It is not a sweet treat and it is really filling. HUGE BREAD. Dad calls it “monster bread” :)) This post is not as interesting as others. I mean, it’s just bread!.. with banana.. haha! My family is getting tired with the sweet treats too. Too much sweet can lead to diabetes. Oh well, but I’m satisfied on how...
choux à la crème
Also known as cream puffs or profiteroles. These little things are made up of choux pastry balls filled with cream. This is good to serve for snacks. (although it’s a bit fattening HAHA) Someday, I’ll assemble them to make a croquembouche but i was too lazy to do that today :)).

Chinese New Year
I donned my blue cheong-sam because I thought it would be appropriate wearing blue on welcoming the Water Dragon Year. I felt a bit ridiculous though. :)) One of my favorite presets. Feeling dramatic. HAHA!
I Think It’s Time For Me To Start Having Crushes...
Hey there! Glad you made it, great to see you, how’s it going? Yeah, brutal weather, eh? Hey, I’ve got us a seat by the window. Hang on, let me just put some milk in my coffee. You want a cream cheese bagel? Okay, I’ll go up and order it. Now, I’ve asked you here today because I think it’s time for us to assess our relationship. To be blunt, we need to face facts: our best days are behind us....
Books During the Christmas Break
I know I should be reading my textbooks but those can wait till classes resume. haha! I’ve been trying to read Stephen King’s serialized novel, The Green Mile. For each part, there is only less than 100 pages - something that is good for me since I have a short attention span. Books on My Bed Part 1 - Two Dead Girls, Part 2 - The Mouse On the Mile, Part 3 - Coffey’s Hands ...
