The Rain is Back!

You know what's good with the rain? The world feels like a cooler place to live in with more mosquitoes and a not so nice humid smell. The best thing about June is that the rainy season is starting and the 3-month long agony of the summer heat, which is way hotter than usual, is over!!!

My little one loves the rain, maybe because it's just another form of water. He loves taking a shower (with hot water) and he loves seeing little puddles on the street. I know all children do but I love how fascinated he is! He is currently obsessed with water animals.

Every night he would ask me to tell him a story about an octopus and some of his water animal friends. I would wiggle my fingers and he will giggle like crazy.

Crabs are on the top of the list too! The other day we had steamed crabs for lunch and it was his first time to see a real one. He enjoyed eating while holding one of the big pincers the whole time.

The little one is really amused with the starfish. He knows the star-shape and everytime he would see a star he would say starfish right away. Oh oh.

Going back to the mosquito, ha-ha! I know you think I'm too petty but I hate them so much. I always get mosquito bites whenever it's raining, they say it's because I have a sweet blood, unfortunately my son does too. I really don't mind the bites, it's Dengue I don't want. We can't be too careful so I always make sure he has a mosquito patch whenever he is out of the room.

Cold and wet days are here! Hooray!

Charice Pempengco is Out!

I don't always have the time to watch showbiz news but I make sure I check on YouTube for big breaking news. Charice Pempengco is one of those stars I look up to when it comes to singing because my expertise in that field is zero - NADA! I love her ever since and not just because I'm a fellow Filipino but because she really is doing an amazing job. When Ellen DeGeneres featured her in her talk show, the whole Filipino community rejoiced with her and the world was taken by her voice. After a short period of time, her career takes off and she is known all over the world. Nothing makes me prouder than seeing someone who deserves all she is getting and so much more.

With success comes a lot of intrigue and I'm proud of how she handled herself. After having her haircut, hair color, tattoos and change of style in clothing everyone else had their doubt about her sexuality. I know she will say something one of these days and now I was able to watch her tell it all. Yes, Charice admitted that she is a lesbian. I am almost crying while watching and I love how smart and humble she is. Proud of you, man!

I am and will always be a good friend to people who belong in the third sex. I have a lot of friends who are very confident in admitting what they love to be and I support everyone of them, I guess they made life easier. They showed me how they can be what they want, stand by their decisions and be happy with it.

P.S. I'm sorry if the interview is in Tagalog. I will try to do a subtitle if anyone wants any, just comment below. I'm quite busy at the moment but I will make time :)

Be you, be free and be happy!
