  • Will Same-Sex Marriage Ever Happen in the Philippines?

    26 Jun 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The United States Supreme Court has finally put its stamp of approval on same-sex unions. This following similar actions by governments in many other first-world democracies around the globe. The high court agreed with the argument that marriage is a very important institution in society. And to deny it to a certain group simply because of their sexual orientation is overtly discriminatory. And when you think about it, the court’s ruling makes perfect sense—whether or not one is gay or straight. In properly functioning democracies (like the U.S.) everyone is equal under the law ...

    Intel has been aggressively rolling out its new low-cost, low-power Atom chips for smartphones this last quarter and we’re expecting the likes of Asus to use the Atom X3 in upcoming Zenfones. While the Atom X3 shares the same name as the Atom X5 and X7, the former actually belongs to a different category. Only the Atom X3 is targeted to affordable smartphones and there are actually 3 types of them. The first two are already in production (3G and 3G R) and will probably appear in new Android phones any time soon. For the meantime, the X3 3G and X3 3G R variants will be used to compete…

This means most cases and accessories of the iPhone 6 will probably be compatible with the iPhone 6S. This was true with the iPhone 5 and the 5S so we don’t suspect the trend to change. 2)…

Rachel Yapchiongco as originally posted on the Philippine Online Chronicles People often link a healthy lifestyle to boring and bland food, tough workouts, and sweet-deprived life. Contrary to the common beliefs, living a healthy lifestyle is not a punishment but a reward that you can give yourself. Exercise plays an important role in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Married couples will be delighted to know that sex is considered as moderately intense exercise. Although sex is not something that can replace…
  • Five parenting lessons my beloved son taught me

    Five parenting lessons my beloved son taught me is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger It’s that time of the year that I declutter my home. The library which is located in my home office is often filled with books because my family members are book lovers. As I reviewed the books on the top shelf, I screamed with delight upon discovering my son’s yearbook in Family Montessori Katipunan , his first school. I thought I had lost his yearbook after moving homes in 2007. I thought “there must be a message here”. I quickly leafed through the pages and found his handsome…

    Aging gracefully with the help of Olay’s Miracle Duo is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger “And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” Audrey Hepburn Turning 58 years old a few days ago was a day to celebrate. I know 58 is just number but it affirms 58 years of trials and tribulations that made me who I am today. I feel positive about my life. I enjoy pampering myself because things can get too busy with my writing commitments. I feel good and beautiful inside and out because I know I am aging gracefully. Feeling and looking beautiful starts with taking care of myself.

    My father believed in me where teachers failed to is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger My sewing teacher looked like she was going to burst an artery when she saw the cross-stitch pattern on my apron. The next thing I knew, the apron sat on my head. I recall the humiliation but thankfully, none of my classmates laughed. Maybe they did not want to be in my position. I was in third grade but I knew what she did was wrong. How could a teacher not tell me nicely that the original fox pattern-turned-catlike was all wrong? True, my sewing was horrible, but did she have to humiliate me? I…

    Admin
    5 Jul 2015 | 6:54 am
    It is generally conceded that impeachment is more of a political than a legal process. However, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), supposedly the official organization of lawyers in the Philippines, has issued a statement raising an interesting legalistic claim regarding the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. The statement argues that while the impeachment process itself against Corona is legal, some of the grounds relied on, particularly those which question the opinions of the justices applying the Constitution in actual cases, constitute an assault on the judiciary…

    To one looking at the broader picture of the travel ban against former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, sans the witting or unwitting shortcomings of the key characters from all sides, it may be reasonable to assume that the question of great commonsensical importance may inevitably boil down to: Who among these players is actually acting honorably, honestly and in fair play? The obtaining facts tell us that the adjudicatory phase of the criminal cases against Arroyo including electoral sabotage, plunder and other high crimes of graft and corruptions had been well approaching when she…

    Impeachment is a political process mainly because party-mates will vote along party lines. This is the habiliment of democracy. Majority controls the business of the day, minority voice is heard for the record, but it does not carry the business for the day. We should not lose our equilibrium because some Senators have already prejudged Merci and therefore they should inhibit from sitting in the impeachment body. The process itself is political and therefore, it will be resolved in accordance with party agenda. Merci, from my recollection did not argue that politics is ruinous to public…

    So it is now the time to bite the bullet until and unless some kind of anesthetic is found for the string of higher scots for our expressways and public transport modes. The Aquino administration surely knows these higher rates exact a political cost. It can, of course, be argued by P-Noy’s communications team that with 7 in 10 Filipinos support the long term goal of putting our lives in order, the adjustments simply cannot be put off. But while this point is conceded, the matter of cogently communicating the reason/s for the upticks cannot be neglected. Let’s cite another point – the…

    Sherwin

    The war on drugs is not exactly like the war on terrorism. For starters, the war on terrorism is rather more effective. It is rare that an act of terrorism happens on U.S. soil, conducted by a foreign interest. While many would say that the powers that be are abusing their mandate by conducting surveillance on U.S. citizens, the fact remains that the average citizen remains terror-free in their day to day lives. The same cannot be said about the war on drugs. As wars go, it is hard to imagine how one could be lost so badly by those who remain so resolute to fight it. It seems the harder we…

But history would also tell us that the Church discouraged such teaching because of its lack of historical and factual basis. So what's it about?

    Coffee with Baileys? YES, please!My mom and I are coffee people, and just to stir things up every now and then, we inject a little inebriant into our cup of joe. Our alcohol of choice: Baileys Irish Cream. It really goes well with coffee, and it somehow makes the usual more special. At times, when there's stock in S&R, we use the mint-flavored Baileys, but oftentimes, it's just the regular one. Either is fine.When I heard that Irene, the talent behind Indulgence by Irene and its popular Queso de Bola Cheesecake, was concocting new flavors---Earl Grey, Corn, Orange Bourbon, and Coffee with…

    Dining on the top of the world...Gramercy Residences is 71 storeys high, and houses a restaurant and lounge at that coveted penthouse spot: 71 Gramercy.When I reached the top floor of the highest building in the country, the sky was still bright.

She's the new General Manager of 71 Gramercy, and the one who invited us all (by all I mean the KTG and some respected blogger friends) for dinner to sample Chef Carlo Miguel's new dining menu.She then took me on a tour of the whole place while we…

    Of sushi and other Japanese comestibles...Aside from Filipino cuisine, I'd say Japanese food---more specifically, sushi and sashimi---is what I could happily consume every day without complaint. I had to mention those particular types of Japanese comestibles, because frankly, yakitori isn't something I find myself craving for. Even ramen and tonkatsu, while I do enjoy eating every once in a while, simply aren't up there on my favorite food list.Eating at sushi places always makes me giddy happy as I anticipate another gastronomic show of Instagram-worthy dishes and flavors that make me swoon…
