May Kwento Ako #42 : The Climb up to the Acropolis Hill of Athens

The Acropolis Hill is worth the trip to Athens and the climb. After all, it is dated 4 millenia before Christ’s death (BCD). And large enough to host many historical landmarks, most of which are in great shape considering the thousands of years that have passed but many are “under renovation”. This hill is notContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #42 : The Climb up to the Acropolis Hill of Athens”

May Kwento Ako #32 : I believe in the magic of Color

The gift of sight to me is very precious. Now that I am growing older, my eyes aren’t too good unlike before.

May Kwento Ako #19 : Obi

It appears that most countries that I have been to have fabrics that they are known for. And proud of. Let me feature the Obi or sash, wornContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #19 : Obi”

May Kwento Ako #15 : The Art of Keeping Still

In today’s world, “how does one keep still?” is a question that is on my mind often.  I am like you who has a dozen and one things to do daily.  On top of work, there are errands to get done, bills to review and pay and files that need sorting.  And, I need to keepContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #15 : The Art of Keeping Still”

May Kwento Ako #13 : BOEUCC, a Milanese Classic

When I was ushered to a nice table in a good section of this restaurant, I immediately liked what was around me. It looked solid, established and with a decent history. It would make a perfect setting for a Mafia-related movie, I thought. When the waiter introduced himself to me, I wanted to chuckle. HeContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #13 : BOEUCC, a Milanese Classic”
