Family is it
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - April 22, 2007 - 12:00am
It is a Sunday, and I am doing some paperwork in bed, when something on TV catches my eye. It is a Coke ad that shows a family connecting at the dinner table, laughing, celebrating togetherness. The message...
Once upon a child
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - April 15, 2007 - 12:00am
The days were long and languid, the nights even more so. The five days we spent there was a respite from all the noise, a quiet so naturally etched in its seascape, so welcome, so soothing —...
Heaven listens
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - April 8, 2007 - 12:00am

Close to home
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - April 1, 2007 - 12:00am

T is for...
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - February 4, 2007 - 12:00am
Tis for Thelma, the relatively new cook (she came in just last year). T is also for tenacious hopefulness (mine, if you must know) that her arrival would also bring new dishes, or at the very least a fresh...
A true story
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - January 21, 2007 - 12:00am
My friend’s grandma passed away and when the family went through her things they found – and I kid you not, because my friend told me so – a dozen rotten, shriveled mangoes, half a balikbayan...
Of leftovers and milk
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - January 14, 2007 - 12:00am
Well, what do you know. It is almost mid-January and I am still at it, wrapping presents deep into the night, sometimes even until the wee hours of the morning. I can make them as pretty as can be, they are...

by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - January 7, 2007 - 12:00am
1. Where you are now is exactly where God wants you to be.
Filling our time with specialness
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - December 24, 2006 - 12:00am
Lately we have been eating out a lot. I do not know if it is because our large wooden dining table, backdrop to many a happy meal, has multi-tasked as the wrapping/packing/dispatching depot for gifts ever...

Memories of Christmas past
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - December 3, 2006 - 12:00am
Icannot say how it came to be, not that it matters really, but as far back as I can remember the guestroom in our old house in Bonifacio St. was always the hub of Christmas preparations. It was my training...
It’s Christmas again – almost
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - November 5, 2006 - 12:00am
Has it really been almost a year already? I am one of seven people gathered around our long wooden dining table. It is raining and we are randomly talking about everything from ghosts to wrong grammar to...
Sun, sea, ship & street food
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - October 29, 2006 - 12:00am
The trip started deliciously and indulgently, with three big packs of Mauna Loa macadamia nuts and a medium-sized bar of Toblerone dark chocolate that I chanced upon at the DFS inside NAIA. It was all I could...

Food in my mouth, memories in my mind, gratitude in my heart
by LOVE LUCY By Lucy Gomez - October 8, 2006 - 12:00am
