Pink Power
by Joseph Gonzales - April 15, 2007 - 12:00am

American Express
by Joseph Gonzales - March 25, 2007 - 12:00am

Pig Party
by Joseph Gonzales - February 25, 2007 - 12:00am
This is the year of the Fire Pig - not that I know what it means, since I'm not Chinese. Ok, scratch that, I actually have Chinese blood - nearly half. If you have to know, it's actually a cumulative total...
There's something inside Mary
by Joseph Gonzales - February 4, 2007 - 12:00am
It was real exciting to hear the news that Mary Cheney, daughter of US Vice President Dick Cheney, is pregnant. One might think, "What's the big deal? It's just another pregnant woman, albeit with a...
Reality Check
by Joseph Gonzales - January 21, 2007 - 12:00am
The Human Rights Commissioner was aghast. She had just seen footage of our soldiers storming a provincial capitol, and pointing big, scary-looking guns at innocent civilians. She could not understand how...
Resignation is a Choice
by Joseph Gonzales - December 24, 2006 - 12:00am
It is ironic that the person designated by Congress to act as its Chairperson of the Committee on Human Rights seems to be afflicted with a severe incapacity to grasp the core tenets of human rights. Rep....
Summit Pot Shots
by Joseph Gonzales - December 10, 2006 - 12:00am
It's the advent of the ASEAN summit, and the leaders of this region, and then some, are about to hit Cebu. The Arroyo administration has spent buckets of cash trying to prettify the place, and make it look...
Mutant Marcos

I'm eagerly awaiting the launch of the Imelda Collection. According to the news, the Iron Butterfly (not to be confused with the rock band or the Canadian design house. And, apologies in advance to all the...
Trip ticked
by Joseph Gonzales - November 12, 2006 - 12:00am
I must say flying Cebu Pacific drives me crazy. First, you have to wrestle with this low cost airline's booking system. The website is simple enough, and lets you navigate unimpeded through the various electronic...
Foot Sore
by Joseph Gonzales - October 29, 2006 - 12:00am
I don't think I'll ever be able to buy Havaiana flip-flops. Not because I can't spare the near-thousand bucks necessary to purchase these made-in-Brazil rubber slippers. It's maybe a matter of personal conscience,...

Privileged lot
by Joseph Gonzales - October 22, 2006 - 12:00am

Fare thee well

Kudos to the First Lady of Cebu, Margot Osmeña, for helping the city garner recognition as the most child-friendly city in the country. It must be so heartwarming for this beloved...
Florence Folly
by Joseph Gonzales - September 3, 2006 - 12:00am
Somebody's got to make the tough decision - those wannabe nurses have to retake the licensing exam. See, this is what I will definitely think if those examinees are allowed to take their oaths without a retake....
Savor Singapore
by Joseph Gonzales - August 20, 2006 - 12:00am
It was with glee that I read the invitation - a dinner at Shangri-la Mactan's delish Cowrie Cove, to launch the Singaporean Food Festival. Now, despite what many say, I've always had a soft spot for Singapore....
