High school life, oh my high school life
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - January 29, 2006 - 12:00am

When I was 18...
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - November 6, 2005 - 12:00am
I wish that Bench had its sexy underwear line when I was 18. Then I would’ve looked better, I think. During my time, underwear was more of a necessity rather than a fashion accessory. Your underwear was used...

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - July 28, 2004 - 12:00am
I like writing for the Philippine STAR because: 1) It has 100 times the circulation of the newspaper I used to handle for 11 years and which I eventually sold. 2) Max Soliven is my Confirmation ninong (sipsip!)....
Why I need a facelift
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - April 4, 2004 - 12:00am
One Sunday morning I had to decide which was more urgent – writing an article (as I had not written for the past 60 days), or getting a facelift. I figured that not writing an article would get me ejected from...

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - January 11, 2004 - 12:00am
I created history for myself when I finally flew out of town last Christmas with hubby and son, and without bringing a yaya. I am too embarrassed to say how old my son is because it will show my skills – or...

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - August 31, 2003 - 12:00am
The whole of Manila must have been on holiday during the three-day Ninoy anniversary weekend, me included. My husband had to attend a meeting in Singapore, and I figured that I could very well see a fertility doctor...
That Star ad, high school days & teachers
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - June 8, 2003 - 12:00am
I can’t figure out where or how this article fits in – is it about graduation (where as usual, I’m months behind when I write about special occasions), or is it about school opening (for once, I am...

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - May 11, 2003 - 12:00am
When it comes to theme writing in school, nothing beats the all-time favorite topic, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation." I don’t know about your time, but during our time, as soon as classes started,...

Memories of a Chinoy student in the ’70s
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - February 9, 2003 - 12:00am
If this article is going to sound like a press release for our 25th high school homecoming this November, then I must admit, it is. But this is not a press release as much as a story on how it was to be Chinoy studying...

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - January 12, 2003 - 12:00am

by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - July 7, 2002 - 12:00am
It is a question that has been asked since the time of Lapu-Lapu and is the question that everyone keeps asking up to this day. Everyone has his own theory on how we can unite our nation. As far as I can remember,...
To have or not to have Children
by CHICKEN FEED By Robina Gokongwei-Pe - May 26, 2002 - 12:00am
Days before I go on a long-haul trip, I usually buy a few magazines to read on the plane. I always get entertainment or human interest magazines because I want to relax while flying. The truth is, who doesn’t...
